    Thanks for fixing DNA-58537 (Zone information registry entry setting not respected for downloaded files) but then “Download” feature is broken in this build ???

    • Kornelia

      What do you mean by broken download?

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      What exactely do you mean? I can download the Opera update files and I can download my daily newspaper. Everything seems to be ok. “Clear downloads” does also work!

    • Юлия

      Opera seems to not rename the .tmp file after download is finished. Cancel then restart seems to help:

        No option, for pausing the GIF, no pauses -apparently- inserted between the frames and it’s going hypersonic, AF. :F

    Linux64

    Download this file size is about 30kb and should be 6.5kb.
    Command line linux program tar complains that file is corrupted.
    This happen with some /not all/ downloaded tar.gz compressed files.
    Is opera recompressing it and compress again?

    In other browsers old : Opera12, Firefox,Midori size of the downloaded file is OK /6,5kb/

    https://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/14.2/multimedia/kodi.tar.gz

    PS.

    After quick investigation the package tar.gz probably is decompressing during download
    /What for? Some sort of surveillance???/
    and archived by the tar without gzipping/compress/.
    So suffix .tar.gz fooling some tools bacause opera during download change real .tar.gz to .tar only.

    • Ricardo J. Barberis

      Yes, apparently Opera decompresses the file on download:

    • Slack server send data with Content-Encoding header which informs that transfered data was encoded and that specific decoding must be performed on client side to receive correct data.

  • AriZone

    What about PDF Viewer and News feed handler ?
    They’re always allowed to run and cannot change that.

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, please have a look here (you can disable the News feed handler in the same way).

      • AriZone

        Thx for reply. Unfortunately with this version it doesn’t work. Maybe it has something with http://www.ghacks.net/2017/01/29/google-removes-plugin-controls-from-chrome. Still looking for solution…

        • L33t4opera

          Hi, are you sure, that you open the Extensions page (Ctrl+Shift+E), and that you trying to disable it there? Here, it works without problems.

          • AriZone

            Wundebar! Mea culpa, I opened plugins page instead extensions. Thanks!

  • Citizen Unique

    Nice one, thanks. This release fixes Opera crushes on mega.nz for me! Win10 x64

    • Tratsing

      Browsing is faster indeed but slower than in other browsers. Decrypting data hangs still for 30sec but does not crash the webpage anymore.

  • Raszlo

    One million dollar question: how to change bookmark/SD item address without changing the image cover? Paid in OperaCoins. 🙂

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Right click on it > Edit?

      • Raszlo

        Only when you have default text-style or logo image cover, otherwise (e.g. page screenshot) it will change to default image.

        I know it’s unusal but I need to change url and prevent cover from changing. 🙂

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, close the Opera, open the “Bookmarks” file in your text editor, search for the bookmark title, and change its url 😉

      • Raszlo

        Yeah, big thanks! 🙂

  • Daniel Schaf

    Thanks for the update!
    Since the last few versions, the advanced settings dissappeard. When I activate “Advances settings” in “Browser”, I get to see only advanced settings for “Browser”, but not for “Basic”, “Websites” and “Privacy & security”.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      I see it everywhere in my Opera.
      W10x64
      Operax64

      • Daniel Schaf

        Thanks for confirming that advanced settings are supposed to work.
        I found out that the flag “Settings component” was set to enabled in my Opera and that setting it to disabled made the advanced settings appear again.

  • Passie

    When making a video fullscreen on macOS I get a grey bar at the top ( 4 cm ) on Opera neon I don’t have this problem.

    When resizing a window from half width to fullscreen the website stays half width. When switching from tab’s the website gets fullscreen again.
    anybody else has this problem ?

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    44.0.2487.0 runs good here. Bring it to beta.

    • Eugene B.

      Lol too early 😉

      • Leonardo Gomes

        Why?

        • Eugene B.

          Chromium 57 isn’t even Beta yet. We’ll get at least one more dev build and then it probably become beta.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I guess it’s just a matter of days.

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            Still the 43, not the 44.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            First 43 needs to go stable. 🙂 What should happen soon based on today’s beta release post.

  • sgrandin

    I reported a bug the other day on the desktop reporting wizard and it was assigned the number DNAWIZ-11226 for it. That’s completely different from the ones mentioned in the changelogs here. Is there another system? I used https://bugs.opera.com/wizard/desktop.

    • DNAWIZ is project for external reports which usually go through some screening first and confirmation procedure. DNA are bugs on which developers work.

    Menu > New private window… results in broken chrome if Opera is maximised:
    https://i.imgur.com/QEJzS8I.png

  • Tratsing

    After right-clicking on Opera icon in Windows 10 64-bit taskbar and after selecting ,,New private window”, then Opera will not start. Windows Task Manager shows no activity of Opera either.

    • AriZone

      same here

  • David_Gould

    Still no way to automatically exclude certain sites from VPN?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I don’t see something like that being implemented in a near future.

      • David_Gould

        A shame. Opera Presto had this sort of thing.

        Both the British and US govts are clearly a threat to their citizens via the latter’s online behaviour.

        Whether you want strong anonymity and thus need to exclude identifying sites (eg Facebook) or want to make life difficult for the new Stasi govts but still need country-specific IP for sites like the BBCs iPlayer, this feature would be very useful. I don’t even care much if it’s some config file somewhere.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Opera Presto never had a VPN. 🙂

          • David_Gould

            I’d have to reinstall it to find out exactly what but many settings could be dependent on what site you were visiting.

  • fearphage

    I see this is fixed in the changelog (DNA-58534 H264 video does not work on Linux), but I still can’t watch H.264 content in Opera on Linux x64 (Ubuntu 16.10). Am I missing something? This is the sample that I’m using: https://vimeo.com/173610242

  • patkoscsaba

    Any chance the Linux font issue will get some love soon? It is extremely difficult to see anything. Tab titles, context menu, download dropdown, O menu… all are extremely small.

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, try to run the Opera with the switch as follows:/usr/bin/opera-developer --alt-high-dpi-setting=96You can adjust the value accordingly to your needs. For example, if your system DPI is set to higher value than 96, e.g. 106, change the value of the switch to 106. If this still doesn’t help, try to set a bit higer values, e.g. 110 😉

      • patkoscsaba

        Hey, that’s awesome! I’ll try it as soon as I get home. Thanks a lot.

      • patkoscsaba

        @L33t4opera:disqus This really helped. At least now fonts are readably, though they are still small. Seting the dpi to 96 seems to be the best compromise. Anything larger adds little to the font size, but much more to the size of elements. Thanks again.

        • L33t4opera

          You’re welcome, you can also try to run the Opera with the following switch: --force-device-scale-factor=1, and see if this helps in your case.

          • patkoscsaba

            This one made it perfect: –alt-high-dpi-setting=92 –force-device-scale-factor=1
            Now Opera Developer look exactly the same as Opera Stable.
            Thank you guys!

    Unsorted bookmarks is not shown when saving a bookmark. Linux 64bit.

    • It’s intended change. This folder was just causing confusion among users so it’s currently in deprecated state. If you have it then it will be still accessible but we removed ways for adding elements to it.

      • iamtelephone

        Thanks for the update. I just moved my unsorted bookmarks to a new folder named “Unsorted Bookmarks” 😀

  • led9ru

    Idea for improvement Opera: in the extensions list, you can indicate the date last updates each extension.

    Now this information is not available, i have to check the version numbers of extensions.
    If the extension is suddenly became paid, i removed it and installing the latest free version.
    For this you need to know the version numbers and the date of the update extension.

  • hilli53

    since Opera developer 44.0.2463.0 the html_videoplayer doesn’t work only flash will start! When I flash block the video do not start! Is it a new bug? sorry I forgot it’s on http://www.n-tv.de…still working with Opera stable….

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What OS? I’ve tried a couple of videos and they played fine here, using the html5 player.

      • hilli53

        sure in opera stable is working html5 player but in dev. 44.0.2475 and follow version is the flash video the only…I tried to modify something in the options to block flash but it’s not automatically changed (whats normal in stable opera) to html5…I use w10/1607

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Have you tried enabling opera://flags/#prefer-html-over-flash?

          • hilli53

            super it’s working now….there was in “standard” I set to “activate” and perfekt run the video in html5…thank you for this good advice.

  • On macOS 10.12.3 the Opera Developer icon is bad (looks like garbled icon)

    Shows right in the applications folder but not other places

  • L33t4opera

    New Opera developer 44.0.2494.0 😉

  • Need to check the variant quantities of extensions. On that the extensions is all of a sudden got to be distinctly paid, i expelled it and introducing the most recent free form. For this you have to know the adaptation numbers and the date of the overhaul extensions.
