Hi all,

Today’s developer build includes quite a few bug fixes and refinement, especially for tabs and ad blocker.

This week’s highlights:

  • The Never Stop Loading bug is fixed
  • Tabs fixes in dark mode
  • Fix for no favicons in Bookmarks bar

A special thanks to Regnas and M92 this week for pointing out these bugs to us. We appreciate you and all our users for keeping a sharp eye on any problems encountered 🙂

Chromium was updated to 64.0.3269.3.

    Hi everybody!
    Unfortunately this ist not fixed:
    1.) The Opera favicon of https://get.opera.com/ftp/pub/ still disappears.
    2.) The ENTER key still does not work for erasing the list of downloaded files (CTRL-J, TAB, ENTER). Disappointed and angry! 🙁

      Hi Ralf,
      last time I informed you that both issues are reported and are on our waiting list.

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        Yes, and I thought, that it would be fixed within one week. Sorry!

        • Ewa

          Hi again, I have good news for you 🙂
          We just fixed the second bug internally and it will be in next developer update 🙂

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            Oh, good! Why is it always possible to cause an issue in one second and to repair it in one week or longer? 🙂

          • Ewa

            Magic 😉

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Regarding number 1, favicon shows up here.

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        Right after installation it did here too. Later, after reloading, it disappeared.

  • Eugene B.

    Thank you for this bug-fixing build of Opera! 🙂

  • Кostadin

    Hi team! I can confirm that nba.com is still unusable – NSL, freezes – Opera x64, Win 10

    • Hans Hansen

      Can’t confirm on Win10, any extensions installed?

      • Кostadin

        Yes, but tested without them. No flags touched either. Same result, the tab just freezes

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Opens here too. No problems. Except with these stupid disqus redirections, when I click on your link.

  • Hans Hansen

    Capture button in the snapshot tool has a wrong font color (should be white):
    And the selfie tool still says “Click space or press camera” in the source language. It must be vice versa (Press space or click camera).

  • Raszlo

    Any news about tab stacking? Much needed feature. =<
    (Yeah, boring… So just do it. ;))

  • Regnas

    Thanks for the update… 🙂

  • Alexs

    Knowns issue for Linux:
    Video with H.264/MP4 wont work

    tested with –ffmpeg-preload-mode=disabled and working libffmpeg.so
    (Working = vivaldi-snapshot and opera developer 51.0.2781.0)

  • Hetai-Na

    Thank you for this new release. Do you plan to add history sync for Opera Mobile? Currently only bookmarks are synced.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Wouldn’t be better to ask Mobile team about it?
      And as far as I know, history should sync on Opera for Android.

      • Hetai-Na

        I thought they work together or in collaboration to each other. On my mobile phone only bookmarks were synced.

  • beBoss


    Doesn’t work. Stays on the page and doesn’t show the email field…

    MacOS 10.12.6

    • tarkus

      Same in Windows 10!

    • Ewa

      Bug confirmed and reported, thanks!

  • Rafal

    At least from the previous build there is no notification about new elements in “personal news”

    System: Windows 7 64-bit

  • Foxy Informática

    Hello Ewa and Team Opera,

    Congratulations to all for the excellent work in developing our beloved Opera Browser.

    I wonder if the Opera team has any plans to natively insert a translator. The extension I use – Translate Version 3.5.0 of richtr – no longer works since the Opera 50 version.

    Thank you and good day to all.

  • Springer

    Can we get “Sort alphabetically” back in Bookmarks Bar?
    While you are at it, please bring back “+” to add sites/folders to the Bookmarks Bar too.

    That is all. Thank you.

  • Maulik Lakhani

    Shame for Opera.
    Page loads 21% faster with ads / when Opera Ad Blocker is off.
    Opera Speed Test Result LInk: (I did 5-10 tests and got very similar results)

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Maybe this is one reason for Facebook be whitelisted by default?

      • Maulik Lakhani

        But I hate ads even if they are Facebook ads. Point of saying is, opera says page will load faster with less/no ads with Ad Blocker enabled.

  • PakSae

    I found Video handler extension in Task Manager.
    What is it?

  • Regnas

    Not sure if it’s just me but I’m getting video freezing when watching videos at speed of 1.25/1.5… on Youtube. At normal speed it works fine. Also on other browsers like Edge etc, the videos are playing fine at any speed…

    Win 10 64 bit here…

    • Tina

      Hi, can’t reproduce this ( 51.0.2796.0 nor 49.0.2725.47)

      • Regnas

        It’s a random thing unfortunately… 🙁

    • Yusei Jaden

      It’s not just you, do not worry. 🙂
      I have this problem too since few versions of Opera (Developer).
      But no problem with Opera (Stable).

  • L33t4opera

    New build – Opera developer 51.0.2802.0 😉

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Yes, it’s a good time for that! 🙂
