Today, we released another update to Opera 26 on our development stream. The biggest change is an update to Chromium (39.0.2171.2). On the UI side, there are no major changes. We are applying the finishing touches to move version 26 to the beta stream. This also means that 27 is on its way!

The Chromium update may have a knock-on effect for some Linux users who wish to play patent-encumbered HTML5 audio and video (MP3/H.264). If you need some help getting these working, these notes should assist you.

Known issue

  • Mac makes unwanted noises when starting to play H.264 videos on Yosemite (this is unrelated to the FFmpeg update in Chromium).

    Thanks for the update Ruarí 😉

  • SQL

    Cool 🙂

    * DNA-28625 Maximized window state is not tracked when window is maximized without using the window button

    Now that I really like 🙂

    • Rafael Luik

      I can’t see the confusion. Two issues (“not”) were fixed (to “yes”).

      • SQL

        Yes but the description for those two are too similar. I can’t say which one the bug i was affected by (or perhaps both?) was.

        Because The window size wasn’t been remembered, and i also have the start page start up setting. But on the other hand it happened whenever i double clicked the ui frame (not the button that makes windows smaller) so by my logic it could be one of these.

        • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

          Does it really matter to you which bug hit you? Isn’t it enough that it’s fixed?! 😀

        • Marcin Mitek

          There were two issues there, I think that summary of both of them clearly shows where is the difference 🙂

  • Leo Liu

    So, it means that Opera stable 25 for Linux won’t release.
    It will release in Opera 26.
    Do I say something wrong?

    • http://www.blackcoder.de blackcoder

      No, that sounds correct.

      • Rafael Luik

        Who said 26 is going to be promoted to the stable stream in Linux? 😛

        • Leo Liu

          Just I guess.
          Opera developer 24
          Opera beta 25
          Opera stable 26
          But…… who knows?

          • zmwangx

            What’s the difference, a lot of big name Linux software never hit 1.0 😉

          • Leo Liu

            I’m just a little sad that Opera 25 for Linux didn’t come to stable.

            I believe that time will tell everything. 🙂

          • Marcin Mitek

            There is no reason to be sad. It’s the same as Stable on Win/Mac, just not branded as one. We gave ourselves more time to fix more bugs on the platform. They originate from the same branch btw 🙂

          • Leo Liu

            OK, I’ll be more patient of waiting the stable version.
            Thanks for reply! 🙂

  • Wando Schneider

    Ruarí, I still can’t close print preview with ESC.

    • NoName

      It’s not in the changelog, so we probably just have to wait for it.

    • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

      It’s fixed in internal builds already. Should come to Opera 26 beta soon-ish 😉

        Ooh, you teaser!
        At the moment it just seems to remove the three buttons at the top of the Speed Dial page.
        Presumably in the fullness of time it will replace them with…………….
        😀

  • Dave-H

    Come on guys, let’s please have a way of sorting bookmarks other than dragging them around manually!
    This is just like the first Windows 8 start screen, horrible!
    🙁

    • Herr Pietrus

      ctrl+c ctrl+v works well.
      I know, it’s some kind of workaruond…

      • Lacedaemon

        I think he already knows about that, plus he is talking about sorting from A->Z, Z->A etc…

        • Dave-H

          Indeed I am!
          Just a one-hit method of sorting them A>Z would make all the difference!

          • Rob Segal

            The ability to sort by most recently visited would be great too as long as we’re on the subject.

    • oic

      Opera team remind me of the Microsoft team in so many ways. They dumb everything down to be mobile friendly and insistent on going down this path ignoring all their loyal users to make their software more desktop friendly

      • Lacedaemon

        yet they have (almost) learned from their mistakes with W8 and they bring out W10, which is not the case with O who want to experience it by themselves as well I guess…

        • Dave-H

          Microsoft must have been told a thousand times by their beta testers that there had to be some way of automatically sorting the tiles on the Windows 8 start screen.
          Did they listen? No! Was there any official apology for the omission when they finally introduced it after what must have been thousands of complaints? No!
          I just hope if doesn’t take Opera as long as it did Microsoft.

          • zmwangx

            Have you ever heard about a software company apologizing for a missing feature?

          • Lacedaemon

            Many video game companies do it.

          • zmwangx

            Okay, I’m not a gamer.

        • oic

          sorry, windows 10 is still an example of them not listening. If they think a start menu was windows 8 only problem, then they weren’t listening

      • A. R.

        ,indeed, it is hideous. they even removed the feature to relocate cache from the settings, how horrible.

        • Vux777

          I’m shocked! ๏̯͡๏
          You wrote a comment without mentioning tab stacking.

          • A. R.

            heh. yeah I don’t always mention it. But hey did u read how Opera has disabled tab preview by default? Again they are removing features and options and not bringing anything back.

            A user who would know how to relocate cache can’t necessarily function with experiments (the person) ~ So Opera would you please be so kind and provide tab stacking as a way to handle tabs because as it’s seen, the tab preview which was suppose to be the tab handling feature is no officially pushed to no default category.

            So how are people suppose to do they’re tabbing and browsing when from the get go, default, there are no options nor functionality.

            Not a great day for Opera. All that time with O23 and O24 and even O25 all the work for tab handling, the preview, gone to waste.

    • SuuperTommy

      You can at least sort folders and it’s content alphabetically through the Opera menu > Bookmarks. But that’s it.

      • Dave-H

        Hallelujah, so you can! Thank you!
        That’s hardly very intuitive though, you should be able to do in directly within the bookmarks manager folders.

    • A. R.

      The main interface needs a button, next to speed dial, a menu to access bookmarks.

      I just tried dev stream (im on beta) and it sucks what’s coming soon to beta channel.

      Ok sync is there – fine. and The new list of tabs, should be an icon for close too, thanks for that anyhow.

      But c’mon do you even have tab stacking plans, or maybe just about a ready feature? Please introduce it in the next beta release!

  • Izer0

    No news about DNA-28034? Thanks God for –renderer-process-limit switch.

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      Please explain what the bug is about and don’t just mention the bug ID.

      • Izer0

        DNA-28034 – Process is not closed when tab is closed, number of unused processes grow rapidly. Based on amount of installed RAM memory and numbers of tabs there is an “threshold” when opera does not close finished processes. It does not happen if there is less than an amount of tabs – processes is normally closed, bud if you exceed this threshold, processes is nevermore closed. And it does not matter if tabs is not loaded (lazy loading enabled). Verified on two laptops, one with Win7, second with Win8. Threshold is about 60 – 90 tabs based on installed memory.

        Reproduce:

        Enable lazy loading, open about 90 – 100 tabs (with an website content), close Opera. Open opera, first tab is loaded, other tabs is “lazy” suspended. Count number of Opera processes in Windows task manager. Open new tab e.g. new site, open next 5 – 10 tabs, close this tabs .. processes is nevermore closed (but is not showed inside Opera task manager). Open next 10 tabs/pages .. next new 10 processes happen, close tabs, processes persist. Read 3 news sites with some new tabs and your memory is gone, Opera is unstable and crashes.

        Right now I discovered I can bypass this problems by –renderer-process-limit switch. Thanks God, working like a charm.

        This problems does not happen if you have less than 40 – 50 tabs, processes of tabs is perfectly closed.

    Im am glad that linux versions for opera are back, but i wonder why there is just a deb package. Each time i click on the link hoping for a selection where i can choose rpm for my fedora…

  • Mister

    Dear developers, please look at the attached picture. (I apologize for the repeat. But I think that is important )

    • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

      You’re learning… slowly but steadily 😛

      • Mister

        What am I? Opera team need to prevent such a designer and front-end errors, so users then not asked in each post to correct them.

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      On any page except the speed dial page (where you took the screenshot) has a heart button in that position that fulfills this purpose.

      • Mister

        Yes, it’s true. I’m sorry if i not well formulated request. The request is to remove the plus-button from the bookmarks bar completely. Not only to transfer it to the right side of the address bar, but also to remove from the bookmarks bar. Because it takes up space and just looks ugly. If it contradicts your vision interface, I beg you to make an option to disable this plus-button.

        • zmwangx

          People always ask for options. “I don’t like this so at least give me an option.” However, if every such request is fulfilled (for things as minor as this), eventually the preferences page will be a horrible mess that is confusing for everyone.

          • NimeshT

            Right, one cannot satisfy everyone with everything all the time

          • Mister

            In the Opera12 was the ability to customize all the buttons. And…? Options has turned into a horrible mess? It was one of the best interfaces for managing browser settings.

          • zmwangx

            Stick with Opera 12 then. This is the new Opera for the future, which aims for a clean UI and deliberately avoids unnecessary complication. You are of course welcome to stick with the past. (Running 12 on Windows XP probably makes a great combination?)

          • Mister

            Wow wow. No, I’m not on XP. But the current buttons Opera which now are at all prominent places of the browser, look a little not aesthetically pleasing and a little clumsy.

          • zmwangx

            Personally I’m okay with that (although removing that button also won’t hurt the slightest). A UI can’t appeal to everyone aesthetically.

          • sgrandin

            What cynicism and contempt for users. There’s nothing clean or economical about an interface that is only half functional and prevents users who wish to from making it more functional for their needs. I care less about aesthetics and almost everything about functionality. Though long in the tooth, Opera 12 remains Opera’s only full-function browser – and that’s too bad.

          • zmwangx

            Sorry, **I’m happy** with the interface, and it is almost fully functional for me. **No one asked you to stay.** If I were an Opera dev, I would prefer new users who have only used my product for one month and love it to those “long-time users” who complains loudly about everything under every single post. Remember, you didn’t pay them a dime.

            Too bad Opera isn’t FOOS. If it were, I would ask you to shut up and submit patches.

          • http://www.lalaurette.com.ar/ Sebastián Lalaurette

            Yes, because if you use free software you must obviously be a programmer. There is literally no other option.

          • anonym

            well.. this would just increase the need for a real structured settings page. it’s already a mess, so things can’t get worse

          • zmwangx

            Currently it’s not — you call a few dozen options, **with search**, a mess?

          • anonym

            yeah, a few dozen per page, and many options open another window with stuff and so on. thats a mess for me. just look at the options of opera 12. there are clear labeled tabs with all options within them and no need for loads of dialogs.

            apart from this, the flags page is a mess as well, but thats another story

          • zmwangx

            > there are clear labeled tabs

            I guess you are the click-around type of person. Accept it, real men do things with the keyboard, which is much more productive, so searching is the real way to go. Searching through preferences is one of the top perks of Chromium, don’t try to get it back to Firefox/Safari type of crap. (In principle you can also implement search in the tab view you mentioned, but no, few people implemented that.)

            > no need for loads of dialogs.
            What do you mean by dialogs? If you mean things like “manage cookies”, no, they are also in 12.

          • anonym

            > Wait do you mean by dialogs?

            i mean things like manage search engines, manage locally stored data, manage personal data, …

            > I guess you are the click-around type of person.

            actually no. i usually used “opera:config” for all my needs. but people i know, not as fit as i am with a computer, are way more confused by the new settings than by the opera12 settings dialog

          • zmwangx

            > manage search engines, manage locally stored data,
            manage personal data.

            I don’t remember all of these, but at least “manage cookies” is a pop-up in Opera 12 (at least on OS X).

            > people i know, not as fit as i am with a computer, are way more confused by the new settings than by the opera12 settings dialog.

            Then they should learn the newer and better way to do things. Really. (Also, a few dozen options — including pop-ups — won’t take you more than twenty minutes to go through.)

          • anonym

            “better” … well thats actually the point. and those ppl dont want do lern this, so they start using other systems if it gets problematic

          • zmwangx

            You know what, they like the tabs not because the tabs are any more intuitive or productive, but rather, most software they use have those to (try to) solve the mess they left behind due to unnecessary options and lack of search. If most software use the preference system currently in use in Opera, they would find those tabs confusing. They simply reject what’s unfamiliar, whether it’s better or not. But sometimes you have to wander into the unknown; that’s how software improves.

          • anonym

            they like the tabs because they divide the settings in a clear and easy-to-understand way. but if you dont accept this as a reason, there is no reason to argue any further.

            > They simply reject what’s new, whether it’s better or not. But sometimes you have to wander into the unknown;

            yeah… so you’re one of those, hailing opera 15 although it missed tabstacks, customizable ui, bookmarks, mail, notes, … . hell, it even used (and is using) way more ressources than good ol presto. yes it was new, but that doesn’t mean it was good.

          • zmwangx

            On startup. Default browser. Search. Downloads. Languages. Shortcuts. User interface. Network. Start page. Advanced settings. Websites. Privacy & security.

            Yeah, SOOOOO hard to understand. If you can’t understand this, you can’t understand anything (ever seen the good ol’ tabs in Adobe products’ preferences?). Indeed, there’s no point to argue. Good luck.

            By the way, Opera 15+ is an entirely new browser built from scratch, with a different feature set. As with any browser, if you don’t like it, go for another. No one begged you to stay. Firefox uses less resources (it also has your favorite goddamn tabbed preferences, btw).

            Good luck.

          • anonym

            its funny how you dont accept others opinions. i wrote down my opinion and you have another one. thats ok, but why not simply accept that i dont like it? I even wrote what i dont like and you’re still not ok with it. well, thats fine for me, but you wont change my mind and as other browsers have no real hi-dpi support im currently “stuck” with opera. (yeah could be worse, but still)

          • zmwangx

            What’s funny is you don’t like this browser from head to toe, yet you are still here arguing. I suppose you’re not a troll, are you? Since you’re not a troll, so you don’t even need to complain. Find a browser you like (or at least like to some extent), and move on, please.

            Whether you’re stuck or not is your own business, btw.

          • anonym

            nope, you’re wrong. i loved the browser till version 12. the versions afterwards all had different problems. most of the problems being some missing or problematic features which somehow made people (minus you, as you seem to accept everything) think that they had nice ideas, but the results still lacked some bits here and there (like stash: nice idea, but somehow unusuable, as it just got too cluttered with to many entries).

            so no: i like the browser, but it has way to much rough edges and i point my rough edges out (heck even in a nice manner (or so i believe)). and yes, sometimes i just feel sad about my poweruser-suite aka opera12. and as i already said, no other browser supports real hi-dpi here, so the others are a complete no-go

          • zmwangx

            Did you read my previous comments? From 15 onward, it’s basically a new browser. Anyway, let’s call it here. This discussion is pointless and annoying.

            (I didn’t accept everything. But although it’s not perfect —maybe far from perfect, this is the best browser so far in my opinion. I have to choose one, just like you are stuck with one.)

          • anonym

            yeah, complete new with lots of rough edges which i’m pointing out as i wrote in my comment… oh wait

          • http://www.lalaurette.com.ar/ Sebastián Lalaurette

            So, only trolls ever have reasons to complain about anything?

          • zmwangx

            There’s a difference between complaining and complaining about every single detail (including design choices).

          • http://www.lalaurette.com.ar/ Sebastián Lalaurette

            And there is a difference between complaining about design choices and complaining about every single detail including design choices.

        • NimeshT

          There’s another reason for not doing so, + button bookmarks bar has additional functionality too which is not related to the loaded page so it’s there. Right Click and see…
          Each functionality built has deep thought process involved with it, and we as end users do not see them easily

          • zmwangx

            Also remember, development is an ongoing process. Ideally there’s one easy, intuitive and unique way to do everything, but in reality some old remnant features are left there until new features are completely stable and welcomed by the masses. Especially so in the dev channel.

          • NimeshT

            I’m a developer too, just wanted to give some idea from end user point of view

          • zmwangx

            Yeah I saw your point. I was just adding to that.

    • http://www.lalaurette.com.ar/ Sebastián Lalaurette

      I don’t understand what you want. That button is for adding a bookmark directly to the bookmark bar. You want to take it out of the bookmark bar? That would be counterintuitive and error-prone.

  • Lacedaemon

    * Opening new tab(s) is still slower than in Stable. (White blink lasts longer)

    * Pic #1: Shift + Right Click on SD Folders opens a menu that promises a lot but does nothing.

    * Pic #2: If you Zoom the SD, right-click menu scales with the zoom accordingly but Shift+Right Click menu does not.

    Also… you won’t change the different behavior of Ctrl + Left Click on SD items and SD Folders, right?

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/max1cp?feature=mhum Maxim

    Since Speed Dial has become completely useless with Opera 25,
    I would like an option to use Bookmarks as a default start page instead of Speed
    Dial. Visual Bookmarks can do everything Speed Dial can but better and with
    more customization. In addition, it has search to quickly find any of my bookmarks.
    Speed Dial only adds extra clicks to access all of the Bookmarks.

    Why would I ever use this poor ugliness over a nice looking
    customizable interface that Visual Bookmarks offer? It should be as simple as adding 2 new
    buttons above unsorted bookmarks and call them Speed Dial and Discover.

    • x a

      Set your start page to “opera://bookmarks/” then… What are you complaining?

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/max1cp?feature=mhum Maxim

        This has already been talked about and this doesn’t work.

        • https://github.com/dqdb/opera-extensions dqdb

          Simply add “opera://discover/” to the bookmarks or open from Opera menu.

          You can use my Custom Homepage extension (it can be found in my GitHub repository) to replace Speed Dial completely with Bookmarks (or with any other page).

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/max1cp?feature=mhum Maxim

            Alright, so is it possible to keep your current session on browser restart? If so I would be willing to look into your workaround.

          • https://github.com/dqdb/opera-extensions dqdb

            Yes, this extension doesn’t modify session handling, it simply redirects Speed Dial to your choice (blank page, bookmarks or any other page). If you have a lot of SD entries and you have a slower machine, you will see SD for a fraction of a second before the redirection takes place. You can open Discover from the Opera menu or using the “opera://discover/” URL.

            And now it is published to the Opera add-ons catalog:
            https://addons.opera.com/extensions/details/custom-home-page/

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/max1cp?feature=mhum Maxim

            Alright, thanks. This works exactly as I want it to be. Now if only Opera made this a real feature…

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/max1cp?feature=mhum Maxim

      Here, 30 seconds in paint fixes everything: http://i.imgur.com/Y6xo3IE.jpg

      And speed dial should look exactly like unsorted bookmarks, only have a different tab.

    • http://www.facebook.com/hector.maciasayala Hector Macias Ayala

      Just use the one year “old” Speed Dial, until Opera takes the stupid decision of ending it, as it seems they will.

      Just ignore the new one.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/max1cp?feature=mhum Maxim

        I honestly see 0 compelling reason to do so. As you said yourself it will probably be removed some time in future. Also, new visual bookmarks structure is much more efficient and customizable. I can pick any thumbnail pictures I like and have nice folder structure etc. So while your suggestion is not the worst its somewhat counter intuitive. I would also have to move all my stuff back from the bookmarks which is a pain.

      • zmwangx

        Seeing from your screenshot, your aesthetics is still stuck in the eighties (I mean, look at that jungle of mess!). How can people argue with that.

          Aesthetics aside, the old Speed Dial may include extensions, which the new one doesn’t. In that, the old one is objectively better. I have almost exclusively extensions, not bookmarks, in my Speed Dial. When they shut it down, I will be pissed.

          • zmwangx

            I think there’s a way around. If you look at the opr.speeddial API doc, each Speed Dial extension is just an HTML page displayed in the cell. Nothing fancy. Opera is a browser so displaying an HTML frame isn’t much harder than displaying a PNG, I suppose. So it shouldn’t be too hard for them to migrate Speed Dial and maintain the API, provided that they see a need in this.

            Personally I’m not a huge fan of Speed Dial (mine is always empty since I can simply type the URIs I frequently use and let autocomplete finish them), so I can easily do without.

          • http://www.lalaurette.com.ar/ Sebastián Lalaurette

            Provided, indeed, that they see a need for this… I fear they won’t. They are set on their new way to do things, even though the bookmark manager and new SD are very clearly broken (all icons from the same domain look the same, you can’t move more than one bookmark at the same time, no folder tree, no sidebar…). I suspect I will find the old SD is no more in the next random update.

          • zmwangx

            There’s always a transition from being broken to being bullet-proof. Development speed aside, I’m actually happy that they release things half-cooked to listen to user’s opinions (please don’t argue with me about whether they actually listen or not…), rather than keep it in the closet before surprising everyone in the end. There’s still enough room for improvement, so I’m generally optimistic.

          • Lacedaemon

            ehm I’m with Sebastian on that… I don’t know where you see half-cooked features, only the latter of what you’ve said is happening so far…

          • zmwangx

            Hmm, so you think the bookmark manager as it currently stands is already final? Okay fair enough.

          • Lacedaemon

            Well if you take a look at my previous comments you ‘ll see what my opinion is, it’s been 3 months since the Bookmarks Manager is in the same state as of now and nothing has changed no matter what everybody said from the really first time they were presented.

          • zmwangx

            Not really. At least the thumbnails were improved (I’m sure about this one since just a few days ago the bookmark feature in stable 24 with flag turned on is still not usable at all.) I didn’t compile a list of changes though.

          • Lacedaemon

            What do you mean with “the thumbnails”?

          • zmwangx

            I mean the domain-name-style thumbnail was added later.

          • Lacedaemon

            I’m pretty sure that was there from the beginning (O24 dev) but in case I’m wrong either way we are talking about basic functionality still missing here (stagnant since 3 months) and not tiny cosmetic changes.

          • zmwangx

            The cosmetic changes are at least huge for me since I escaped from Chrome to Opera around Opera 18 or something precisely because of Chrome’s increasingly horrible UI design.

            Apart from that, they also implemented bookmark sharing (although I don’t care the slightest). So they are still working on it, be it basic or advanced functionality.

            I’m not an Opera dev though, so more argument is bound to be fruitless.

          • Lacedaemon

            Whatever… if you don’t get what I say it’s ok…. Go use Bookmarks Share instead of being able to organize your bookmarks and be happy….

          • zmwangx

            I get what you mean, but being pessimistic doesn’t help the slightest.

          • http://www.lalaurette.com.ar/ Sebastián Lalaurette

            So, let me guess: you are the new Pesala, bashing everyone who express a legitimate complaint, right?

            I have defended the Opera team several times and I think they are making the best desktop browser available. It’s also free. I love it. I use it every day. I get it.

            This doesn’t mean they haven’t done some pretty idiotic things, like originally shipping a browser without bookmarks. We all make mistakes. Big ones, even.

            I could agree that it’s good that they release half-baked things to receive feedback. That’s what the beta and developer releases are for. But they have shipped a half-baked bookmark manager to the STABLE branch. This is not good. In fact, it’s pretty bad.

          • zmwangx

            Read this thread again. It’s not about “no bookmarks is good” — obviously that’s not the best idea. It’s about whether the Speed Dial should be merged with the bookmarks manager. The point I’m making is that although it’s not completely done, it’s working fairly well, at least for me, so I appreciate their work, and am reminding people like you that it’s time to move on and embrace it (complaining is okay, but hearing all those “Opera 12 has everything! Opera 15 is pure crap!” is really tiring, even for me, let alone the devs).

            > That’s what the beta and developer releases are for. But they have shipped a half-baked bookmark manager to the STABLE branch. This is not good. In fact, it’s pretty bad.

            Yep, I agree. But would you like to see, say, a two-year transition period to settle everything down without releasing a stable? Remember, they’ve built it from scratch.

            You asked for bookmarks. Legit request. You pressed them — some of you pressed them not so politely. They released it half cooked. You complain about it. Not cool. Pretty discouraging for the devs, I’d say.

          • http://www.lalaurette.com.ar/ Sebastián Lalaurette

            I like how you imply that they had no chance but release it as a half-baked feature, as if a dev team couldn’t assign priorities to tasks. Bookmarks are not such a complex feature that it takes a couple of years to get it right –what really happened is that at first they wouldn’t work on it AT ALL (since they said the browser would not have bookmarks) and that raises a valid concern that the feature, albeit implemented, will never have priority for them.

            That complaints are discouraging for the devs does not mean that they are wrong, unfair or misguided.

          • zmwangx

            Yep, they tried to replace it with stash at first but failed (largely due to inertia, I think; I thought it was a promising idea).

          • Lacedaemon

            Dude stop this crap with how the devs feel… are you their mother?

          • zmwangx

            Happy developers work at YOUR benefit.

            Autocomplete is another function Opera never got right, not even in Prestopera.

        • http://www.facebook.com/hector.maciasayala Hector Macias Ayala

          It’s from 2013 boy and they’re folders, they contain direct accesses to my most used sites, which are portrayed with thumbnails, it’s all about being functional.

          It’s MY layout, not yours, yours can be all different, there’re all sorts of images for you to put there and have it your own way.

          Opera is about to ruin it.

          • zmwangx

            It’s YOUR way, and they don’t like it, so they’re gonna change it. What’s so wrong. Btw, I see no point in putting YouTube or whatever in a Speed Dial folder and click *twice* to open. Go to your address bar and type yo… If it’s not working for you, then poor you, it’s working for me (on OS X). I admit that the order of suggestion is sometimes upside down, with search suggestions over history suggestions. But they do appear, and for something I visit as often as YouTube, it should be the autocompleted one.

      • Lacedaemon

    I still have problems with the pepper plugin of flashplayer, forcing it with “C:Program FilesOpera Developerlauncher.exe” –ppapi-flash-version=”15.0.0.183″ –ppapi-flash-path=”C:Windowssystem32MacromedFlashpepflashplayer32_15_0_0_215.dll” does work

  • taneli

    1) using NPAPI Flash makes Opera window to stay on the background, can’t bring it to front anymore.
    2) using PPAPI Flash, on youtube it won’t remember the volume setting as it should.
    3) using PPAPI, the picture quality is 320p even when viewing HD videos.
    4) using any Flash plugin, randomly freezes the whole browser for quite some time, and if you happened to open that video “to a background tab”, and you switch to that tab, it’ll screw up the whole browser.
    5) PPAPI videos get “stuck” on youtube when you press pause, the “pause” image won’t go away. even though the audio will play in the background.

    Only mentioning the problems that i can’t reproduce in other browsers.
    While trying, Chrome, FireFox, IE won’t get these problems.

    As an added bonus, now that imgur introduced their new .GIFV, they tend to crash the tab, so now i’m using Chrome for youtube and imgur browsing, very little i can do in Opera anymore (besides the fact that, the whole browser dies when i work and am rendering something).

  • http://www.facebook.com/hector.maciasayala Hector Macias Ayala

    Opera still can’t autocomplete from Bookmarks, =(. This is BASIC!!

    • Frenzie

      Also they should receive precedence over stupid search suggestions the way it used to be in Opera 10 or so.

      Yes, this is a very significant disadvantage 🙁 Let’s hope and wait for a fix.

    • Lacedaemon

      That’s what I am saying all the time… Bookmarks is in such an unfinished state in every basic aspect for so many months now, and yet they are making surveys about how many ms the delay should be in the tab previews…

  • http://www.facebook.com/hector.maciasayala Hector Macias Ayala

    Who asked for Chrome PDF Plug in? Who asked for a new Speed Dial? Who asked for non-customizable bookmarks?

    • Wando Schneider

      The Chrome PDF Plugin and the new SD was me 🙂 . Sorry about that.

    • zmwangx

      +1 for PDFium. Mozilla PDF.js sucks.

    • Nekomajin43

      I like the new speed dial design…

      • ahoj1234

        I have no problems with its design. But with its functionality. (that’s maybe what was hector trying to point out).

        – SD/folder’s name should be visible ALL the time (as in old SD or bookmarks)

        – (and others – will skip it because of the next point)

        “the next point”:
        stash were removed. I “approve” it. But SD should be removed too since bookmars are visual (as well) and SD has LESS functionality than bookmarks but including ALL of bookmark’s one (AFAIK) and if not all of them it’s not that hard to implement it in bookmarks…

        PS: finally the windows maximized bug has been fixed! 🙂

        • Nekomajin43

          I did not say it’s perfect. But the design looks good. And it’s experimental at this moment, so it will evolve.

          Having a distinct speed dial is a good thing because it can contain extensions. (I would kill for a modern UI-like start page…) But it would be good to have a speed dial folder in the bookmarks, just like the bookmarks bar.

          • ahoj1234

            hehe. not true at all. The “new SD” CAN’T contain extension (ATM) – or at least they do not show there on my machine.

            so it’s seems to me like it’s totally the same if they do an extension API for bookmarks page or for the new SD page.
            so for me there is no need to evolve the new SD since it can’t be better (or I just can’t imagine in what way it could be) than bookmarks as start page since visual bookmarks.

          • Nekomajin43

            Yes, because it’s “experimental”.

          • ahoj1234

            not sure if it’s BECAUSE of it or not 😀 anyway, the new SD (start page) is still experimental, that’s true… but bookmarks are not finished yet as well. (some of Odev pointed out that bookmarks will be still worked on even when they were pushed to stable branch)

            To be honest I’m not sure if we can find something what’s really finished but that’s another topic.

          • Nekomajin43

            One thing we can agree is almost everything looks half-done since they switched the engine. 🙂

            The speed dial extension will be back. There were comments about this from the devs. My guess is they will get some bigger developement.

          • http://www.facebook.com/hector.maciasayala Hector Macias Ayala

            And what’s wrong with the current SD?

          • Nekomajin43

            Well, it has the buttons on the top, and our displays are wider than higher. It has the ugly white gradient on the top. And it lacks features that the new one will perhaps contain.

  • zmwangx

    Guys, I’m still looking for *in-place unbookmark* (right from the bookmarked page, like what we used to have with the stash). Having to go to the bookmark manager, browse or search through a ton of other stuff just to unbookmark a page that I finished reading sucks.

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, when you right click on the webpage, you can select “Remove From Bookmarks” from the context menu, BTW: when you switch off the “opera://flags/#bookmarks”, and restart the Opera, you can use the old Stash, as before 😉

      • zmwangx

        Indeed, I didn’t realize it’s available in the context menu. Thanks. The asymmetry between counterpart functionalities is not very intuitive though. Hope it gets addressed.

        Btw, I know I can use the old stash, but I like the new bookmark manager except for this minor annoyance. (And clearly the stash will be removed in a future release.)

    Despite me wanting to, as a long Opera user, I will not use Opera again until the mandatory sitecheck is allowed to be disabled just like regular chrome/chromium. I do not like being FORCED to send all my browsing traffic to opera/Google servers. Why Opera purposely removed the option to disable this (is simply there in Chromium) was never explained and still remains hidden.

    • gregorweber

      What’s worse, privacy policy does not even mention this feature.

    • Mister

      Can you give an example of a browser, where there is an option to disable this sitecheck? Want to compare.

      • Lacedaemon

        ehmm…Chrome for everybody… old Presto Opera…

        • Mister

          I don’t understand what option you have in mind. This: “Do not allow websites to know where you came from (HTTP header)”?

          • Lacedaemon

            No, it’s called like “Enable fraud protection”. Any site you visit is being sent to their servers before you see its contents (in Opera’s case any url goes to sitecheck2.opera.com) to check if it’s legit or not.

          • KN

            Exactly Lacedeamon. The malware/fraud protection is what I am referring to in regards to sitecheck traffic. Currently EVERY other browser (including Chromium/Chrome themselves!) allows a simple way in settings gui to just disable this. Opera does not. Must be selling the data since they consider it worth the effort to remove the ability to disable.

          • Lacedaemon

            You ‘re probably right. Not telling even one thing about it since O15 is very suspicious.

  • Jin

    My worry is whether Speed Dial will be someday completely removed from Opera.
    Though I think the new start page is well done. I still love the old one!

    So please keep the flags option #experimental-start-page. Or in future, when the new start page becomes default, please provide #enable-old-style-start-page in flags or such a menu in settings. This is my wish.

    • http://classicalmusicmayhem.freeforums.org Rodders

      Since I configured the new bookmarks feature to suit my needs I have not used the Speed Dial at all (and I previously used the SD a lot). So if the SD disappeared it would be no loss to me.

      • http://classicalmusicmayhem.freeforums.org Rodders

        In fact I’ve just installed the ‘New Tab Start Page Pro’ extension and set the home/start page to be the bookmarks tab, and at a stroke the SD no longer exists in my browser.

    Regarding the extensions page. For me, at least, the “Updates” tab is always empty,and the “Update extensions now” button doesn’t seem to do anything. What is the expected behavior?

    Also, a button to clean out old versions of extensions would be nice.

    • zmwangx

      Most extension updates happen in the background automatically so in principle you don’t need to touch that. However, as with everything automatic, there’s a delay between a new version pushed to the upstream and the update detected by your browser, so you can explicitly tell Opera to check and update your extensions. “What is the expected behavior?” Most of the time, nothing. If there’s an update, the update will be silent and the version number will be bumped. If the new version asks for more permissions then you will be prompted, but that’s very rare.

      • Laga Mahesa

        It would be nice if it said either “No updates found” or “Updating… Finished… the following extensions were updated: blah”

        [IMG]http://i57.tinypic.com/2m6368h.png[/IMG]

  • http://www.blackcoder.de blackcoder

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Start Opera and make sure it is a maximized window (window 1).
    2. Open new window (window 2)
    3. Resize that window (window 2)
    4. Close that window (window 2)
    5. Close the other window. (window 1)
    6. Start Opera and notice that it is in the state of window 2 as in step 3/4.

    Expected:
    Opera should start in the state of window 1 when closed (that would be maximized).

    Anyone can confirm this?

        – if you set “Czech language” in Opera’s setting, it just find “vecer”. If you have English one, it find also “večer”.

        But it works as intended to me. “č” is not “c”. It’s close but not the same. We have both in alphabet.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgMKHY044xw

    P.S. I calmly asked to FIX IT FOR MONTHS. Sorry, I lost my patience. The browser is not usable for me. Windows 7 x64, Non-Pepper Flash 15. And 14. And any other. Flash version doesn’t matter, I tried all of them.

  • AS

    Why Opera 25 opening in smaller window? Fix this to Opera will open in normal big window.

    Why did you remove some options from installer?

    Hello.
    Please add “open link in new tab and windows” in the speed dial.
    Thanks

  • Footman

    After some past changes the colors of speed dial are not good anymore.

  • AFX

    The “Disable tab bar’s top spacing when browser window is maximised” option doesnt work as supposed in 26.0.1656.5. Although it toggles the pixel near the top of the screen, it doesn’t allow to select the tab by clicking at top position. This is on Windows 8.1.

    Still some weird shortcut problems, as i’ve randomly been experiencing since v15:

    Sometimes when pressing Ctrl+F random stuff happens, usually it just changes the active tab to something else, now as of late, it sometimes zooms the page by 200%.
    Can’t really reproduce ’cause it doesn’t happen all that often, and is seemingly very random.

    Win8.1 x64.

    • https://github.com/dqdb/opera-extensions dqdb

      I have no idea how to reproduce but this bug certainly exists. It is so random and unpredictable that I didn’t report it because of this nature. If I remember correctly O17 or O18 was the affected version (at least for me).

      But Ctrl+F has a more serious problem since O16:
      1. press Ctrl+F to open search bar,
      2. press Ctrl+F4 to close the tab with an open search bar.

      … and the activated tab gets a hidden and open search bar … for example pressing Space hightlights all spaces on the page and so on. You have to press Ctrl+F and Esc to cancel this invisible search bar.

    some extensions are looks broken in this 26.0.1656.5 build:
    “ContentBlockHelper” and “Stylebot” show “grey”(not left-clickable) buttons on extensions bar … “Page Monitor” freezes then open changes in pages …
    so I downgraded my Opera to 26.0.1655.0 – all of them work fine in it

    Please, implement SSL client certificate authentication. It’s a very basic browsing functionality and even the simplest browser has it.

  • inn3rd

    have some problem with the flash player. Crash everytime ( shockwave plugin stopped working) i try to open some video on youtube or other sites. Im on ubuntu 14.10 64bit

    • Alexander Addams

      same issue here on elementaryos

  • helsten2

    Hmm, seems to be quite heavy on User Objects (windows resources).

    I opened my browser session yesterday and I normally have between 5 and 10 tabs open.

    Now I have more than 7000 User Objects allocated.

    I have serious functional problems with bookmarks:
    * Saving a page in a nested bookmark folder is a pain is the ass, as I’m forced to follow these steps:
    1. Initially I save it in the unsorted bookmarks.
    2. I drag it in the parent bookmark folder.
    3. By opening the parent folder I subsequently drag it – one folder at a time – in the nested folders until I reach my final destination.
    4. I repeat that for every unsorted bookmark, since I haven’t found a way to select & drag multiple bookmarks.
    * I cannot alphabetically sort bookmarks, except by moving them with the mouse in the right position.
    * I cannot open a new folder within a nested folder, instead I open it in the root and then move it as previously – in individual bookmark manipulation – described.
    * I cannot open all bookmarks in a folder at once (i.e. ‘open all’ command)
    Because of the above limitations, I’m forced to use a bookmark extension! (at least I can directly drag & drop in any sub folder)
    Am I doing something wrong? Can somebody tell me a different way of doing things?

    • ahoj1234

      If I get the biggest problem you have, here is a solution:

      you can save bookmarks whenever you want. The “unsorted bookmarks” folder is just default. You can select (when saving) different folder. (this works as in O12, though, here are “unsorted bookmarks” always default no matter where you saved last time).

      – when you save it whenever you want, no furthermore moving is needed. Though, sorting by a lot of aspect is (still) missing and opening “all” probably too.

      And one promising thing: Odevs told us that bookmarks are still under a development even they were released in stable branch.

      • dflyra

        Thanks for the response, but that doesn’t solve the gradual drag & drop problem if you want to move the bookmark – and certainly not the multiple bookmark problem.
        I’m very glad to here that the devs are working to make things better and I’m confident that, if they identify the problems, they will deliver sooner or later.

      It works for me!

      • beBoss

        Can you provide a screenshot?

        • dflyra

          I’ll post it, as soon as I find a way to post images (I have already cropped the image and stored it in my HDD: it says “congratulations, your computer has the latest flash player installed ….” and has my system information, among them Opera as my browser)

          • beBoss

            Pfff After clean installation the result is the same… I will reinstall my flash player and will text again.

          • beBoss

            Uninstalling and installing again – same shit….

          • dflyra

            Do not freak out! The bottom line is: do you have the flash player installed or not? I’m sure it’s installed – if it weren’t there would be other problems (video, audio etc.). Opera has a flash plug-in activated (developer tools -> plug-ins). And I have to tell you that Opera’s behavior in the site you mentioned is different than the other browsers (Chrome included): it appears once, stays for a while and then disappears, so don’t eat your heart out!

          • beBoss

            Of course it’s installed. But there’s a problem somewhere. I reinstall Opera and Flash player, and the result is the same. And I’ve removed opera folder and profiles to be sure that the installation will be “clean installation”. So after all, the site shows that I have installed the flash, but doesn’t show the yellow message box, and the picture “flash with clouds” is not showing up: http://s28.postimg.org/p3yosvlvx/blank_flash_item.png

            So where is the problem? IE, Chrome and FireFox are working with site check! And last thing flash plugin is enabled in opera plugins.

          • beBoss

            it’s the same with clean install of Windows 10, Opera and Flash player! The site doesn’t work properly, not showing the dialogue, and flash videos are crushing, and if don’t crush, youtube videos for example, It’s laggy in fullscreen!

  • ABDX

    simple question !
    i have an 2nd gen i3 laptop with win7x64, which when i watch a certain MP4 videos online (e.g. blip.tv) my laptop overheats and restart sometimes but when i download them and play them on media player or even stream them on the media player, the laptop stays cool.
    1- where is the problem ?
    2- and can i use local codecs like lav or ffdshow to play video online ?

  • Ralf Brinkmann
  • knuthf

    Where do you want feedback on the rolling releases of Opera Next?

    On Mac, you trigger most likely a video reset, that you do not catch, that cause the browser to restart, and everything else is reset: Downloads are restarted because you show a preview of a tab. Drop the tab preview if you cannot trap the video signals.

  • beBoss

    The sync doesn’t work… My opened tabs and speed dials are gone now….

    • dflyra

      Opera devs, as they said, have introduced a new sync which saves only the bookmarks and not the speed-dial as before. And that’s my main problem with the bookmarks concept: Every time we store a page in speed-dial it should be stored in bookmarks too (lets say in ‘speed-dial bookmarks’ like in ‘unsorted bookmarks’)

  • A. R.

    Omg!

    They’re (Opera’s) biggest push for tab handling was this preview, and now they have auto-disabled it!!

    Opera gone to the wrong tracks again.

    So why don’t cha just give tab stacking. The whole O23-24 and even O25 was wasted for a feature that was suppose to be ground breaking, and only alternative, to tab handling, is now disabled.

    So Opera how are suppose to do our tabbing and browsing? It really begs a question.

  • Ghirahim

    YouTube 60FPS support when?

  • L33t4opera

    The first Opera developer 27.0.1670.0 😉

    • Lacedaemon

      yep, a right-click menu at the left column in BKM was added with the entries Rename and Delete, an experimental address bar to the bottom of the page for the transition between SD, BKM, Discover and Themes and some other things in the flags.

  • dflyra

    Opera developer 27.0.1670.0: What happened to the speed-dial? Tiles are completely dark and indistinguishable, except for the tags. Is it a new fashion or what?
    I’m forced to use the old speed-dial!

  • NoName

    For me, Opera 26 under Ubuntu 14.04 is virtually useless. I know it is a developer version, but given that it’s the only current version available to Linux users, I am trying to use it.

    My other Opera browser, version 12.16, is slowly but surely being made obsolete by a number of sites. It’s getting slower and slower. I just want this version, with all its wonderful qualities (Notes, Mail, Speed Dial, customizing, amazing ad block, and more) to be reimplemented in newer versions of Opera.

    Under 12.16 I can’t even get Imgur, Amazon, Vimeo, and a number of other sites to play nicely. And version 26 can’t play any kind of videos (save for maybe the html 5 ones). In fact, there’s really nothing to like with respect to version 26. And oh how I wish that wasn’t the case, as this sadly seems the way things will be.

    It’s very frustrating. I love Opera, as I have been supporting it since the days when I paid for it. It has been my number one sole browser since that time. I have tried to like the others, Chromium & Firefox, but can’t. They’re awful. I used to speak Opera’s praises to any and all that would listen. Now, I can’t.

    Please throw a bone to Linux users and fans of the old Opera (version 12.16). Pretty please.

  • Joe

    The main reason I use Opera was that I could customize it the why I like including the buttons, the position of the tabs,the background on the speed dial page, customizing the skins now the skins are gone they are “themes” now You are taking everything that I liked about Opera away If you continue to do this I might as well just go to Google Chrome or just use Microsoft IE. Because Opera 26 has none of the customizing options and the options I’m forced to use are not to my liking. I have always been happy with Opera because of your option for me to customize the user interface to my preference in which all the other browsers didn’t The customizing is what made Opera unique. Now starting with Opera 26 you are being just like all the others. So I might just have to start using the other. Something to think about.

    Thank you

    it deos remind also with microsoft in so many way but still amazing i like it seriously. al3ab

  • Jgorish

    Echoing other comments, Opera appears to have dumbed down access to settings which makes tweaks impossible. I’m using it on a Win7-64 computer. When first installed, Opera was blazing fast, but over time it’s gotten slower and slower, despite clearing the cache daily (sometimes more!) I have a large RAM disk on this computer, and putting the cache there would undoubtedly improve performance. Too bad the newest version of this browser doesn’t allow access to do that.

    • Lacedaemon

      I haven’t test it myself (yet) but are you sure the parameter –disk-cache-dir=”Drive:/” isn’t working?
