Hi Opera fans!

While summer is still here we have another update on the beta stream for you.

This build has updated Chromium to version 44.0.2403.84, and includes a couple of fixes. For more details, please see the changlog below.

For some time already we’re trying to track down and fix a bug causing duplicates in bookmarks when using the synchronization feature. That’s one of the most frequently reported bugs related to synchronization however whimsical in reproduction and that’s where we’d appreciate your help.

If you’re willing to help us to fix that issue now you have a good chance by simply setting the OPERA_DUPLICATION_LOGGING environment variable (to any value) or run Opera with –opera-duplication-logging command parameter. Doing that will enable duplicates detection code and some special logs dedicated to track down the issue. The logs will be written in sync_duplication.log in your profile folder and
won’t contain any kind of private data. Please note that enabling those logs may slow down adding and moving bookmarks in the bookmark manager a little bit and that’s expected.

If you enable the logs and notice any new unwanted duplicates in your bookmark manager after that, please send an email to us at desktop-support-external@opera.com with the sync_duplication.log file, hopefully that will help us tracking down the root cause and fixing the bug.

Happy Testing!

    Wow, that’s the 3rd Opera update in a week ! You guys are really on fire to give us this Opera Beta build 31.0.1889.74 update which we give thanks for and it’s getting better with every update.

    Fans to ChrOpera? Is any?

    • Marcin Mitek

      It’s for me and @disqus_1XVlhRqEIm:disqus. 🙂

      • Vladimir

        When correct errors and defects that more than a year? !!

        1. When installing the Ukrainian version of Opera is not Ukrainian Dictionary spellchecker, although a record of it in the context menu there, but the dictionary file in the folder opera there.

        2. Why is the Ukrainian version of the game category is not added to the section References / News? !!

        3. Give users more opportunities to customize the browser, remove the search box on the express panel. And at this point to turn it off you need to administer a combination of Clavey to open the expert settings !!!

        4. Why is accumulated trash folder Opera, older versions of Opera 30 ?!

        5. There is no possibility to remove the standard search engines such as search Rambler !! Why do we need it, it’s probably the least popular search engine in the world..

    • Ricardo J. Barberis

      I’m a fan too, so that makes us 3 🙂

    • Ricardo J. Barberis

      Oh, and upvoting your own comment? Lame!

    • Marko Koivuniemi

      My heart is big and there is plenty of room available both Opera and certain browser of ex-employees of Opera. So I am a fan and recent progress is impressive when you think it’s summertime.

  • sgrandin

    Two problems right off (not new to this build):
    1) something is disabling AdBlock extension, apparently between sessions (see my post in the last beta build); don’t know where it’s coming from, but AdBlock’s developers can’t find it on their end.

    2) Duplication with “Import bookmarks and data from the default browser” – I don’t use bookmarks but with the Speed Dial the existing thumbnails are being duplicated as (hard to distinguish) tiles during the install, if that box is checked. Is that part of the duplication issue you’re referring to? I was hoping that it would add newer thumbnails rather than duplicate all. In any case, a quick mass highlight and remove tool would be helpful for those of use with lots of thumbnails (90+ here).

      Do you have the opera://flags/#extension-content-verification flag enabled? If so, try disabling it.

      • sgrandin

        No, it’s disabled. (wasn’t aware of opera:flags page)

  • Lacedaemon

    does the parameter work with O30 as well? cause it’s happening all the time there too with Vista x32, plus re-adding deleted default tiles (facebook, twitter, etc) as well, and reverting whatever changed flag setting to default every now and then.

  • sgrandin

    New error with this build (not with the previous ones): trying to open psaudio.com or any other page there returns “This page has a redirect loop.” Same result with both Win 8.1×64 Pro desktop and Win 7×64 Pro laptop. 12.17 is able to load the site with either computer. Clearing history/cookies/etc. for past four weeks doesn’t solve it.

    • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

      We’ll take a look at this.

        • Sidney Moraes

          Activate Power user settings on settings page with Konami code (up up down down left right left right b a) and you will be able to remove the search box of speed dial.

          • Сергей Трофимов

            That’s probably why the users having trouble !!

        • Leonardo Gomes

          2 – afaik some sections in Discover may not be available in all regions.

          3 – it’s already possible to remove the search bar in speed dial. It has been mentioned here often.

          4 – you mean old builds folders being kept? If so, this is how Chromium works afaik.
          It was discussed here and in the forums a lot.

          5 – Already discussed a lot.

          • Rafael Luik

            5. But not solved.

        • Don’t use the google translate, write with your words. So many mistakes, hard to understand.

  • mb

    Still crashes when I open my webmin page, Edge opens it fine. W10x64

  • sgrandin

    An ongoing problem (Win 8.1): My desktop icon of the beta includes ” –alt-high-dpi-setting=96 –disable-update” add on. The taskbar version of that icon – created from the desktop one – recognizes the update disable but not the dpi setting. Why is that?

  • RX-3200

    why Opera-window still ignore win7-system colors ?
    we don’t whant to see white addressbar & very-light-grey toolbars in dark-win7-themes
    and we don’t whant to see white-background-splash on every new-tab-opening – we ask an option to “paint it black” here very long time ago again and again…

    PS: all sites can have dark-themes with Stylebot extension, so please don’t make here tale of a tub about bg-colors-statistic in answer on this question

  • There is a problem then website have combined http / https content.
    Opera beta 31 change all src=”” to https.

    For example: http://evrogaz.com/

    Is it possible to fix this?

  • Dark Magician

    Scrollbar in Windows 10 isn’t modern.

    • bwat47

      this is a known issue, will probably be fixed by the time win10 is officially released.

      • danielo

        What if it doesn’t get released?

        • Sidney Moraes

          And why that would happen?

  • ricksper

    Can not get access to Account at this site.

    https://www.ustvnow.com/

    Works on Chrome.

  • sgrandin

    piratebay.se times out with this build (and FF40b), but loads quickly with IE11

    • jedy123

      So sorry to hear that illegal and unethical site wont work with Opera!

      • sgrandin

        Skimping on paying all your taxes is illegal too; how many times you done that? The thing is that if a site doesn’t work, the problem may be common to other sites as well, so it’s worth checking out.

    • Юлия

      It works for me 🙂 But the address as of today is https :// thepiratebay . mn /
      I’m using Opera Developer though..

      (I think Opera promoted the fact that TPB works on their browser or something related in a blogpost, so I think any references to TPB shouldn’t be prohibited, still I added some spaces to the address so you have to remove them)

  • Dark Magician

    Lately there are dropped frames on YT with VP9.

  • Sidney Moraes

    Just found this difference between Opera beta (and stable) and developer in Opera add on page.

    • Tomasz Procków

      Which language you have set in your browser? Do you have same language in all streams?

      • Sidney Moraes

        Yes, they are in Portuguese. Look the symbol next to “instalando” and “installing”, it is different.

  • Dark Magician

    Which folder do I need to backup to save all Opera data, for clean install?

    • bwat47

      go to Opera menu > about Opera (or opera:about in the addressbar) and look at the ‘Profile:….’ path there, that will be the folder.

  • sgrandin

    One thing I really miss with the recent Opera, including this beta, is the O12 history button at the bottom of the page, which shows sites closed in reverse order. The new History page often doesn’t cut it, because it you have a bunch of related tabs open and close one by mistake, it could be way down the list and hard to figure out.

  • Daw

    I cant use flash PPAPI – movies are shaking like mad :/ ON NPAPI it says – update the plugin (I have newest version). Damn you flash !!

  • Dark Magician

    Telegram web version and protocol don’t work in Opera.

    I don’t want opera or speed dial on my apps

    Greetings

    I always liked the Opera browser, and use it several years but unfortunately, after I start using Firefox, I stop to use more often the Opera.

    So why? Because of navigate between tabs.

    I wonder how can I do this with Opera, tab scroll wheel?
    How can I force the minimum size in Tabs, when I open?
    That’s because I sometimes open more than 30 Tabs!

    If I achieve that, Firefox goodbye!!
