      Thanks for catching this! We have got it reported.

  • Tony

    how much control does the chinese have over development, before i decide to use Opera it scares me that the chinese now own this company with all the hacking they do on a daily bases.

      It’s a very good question,

      • Tony

        Thanks Cobalt i just hope on all our parts that there is a clause written up that states the chinese can’t move the company to china.

      Company ownership has changed – not the development. Also for information: we are a Norwegian company and operate under the Norwegian Law.

      Browsers are very much in the “trust” business and users’ trust is something you build over years and simply put – don’t dare to lose.

      Whatever we do is transparent via our privacy policy but I do understand your concern – I would not use anything else than Opera (I know – surprise! ;-)) for exactly same reason, especially having advantage of working here. I don’t want ads to track me, my ISP or other people on the same network know what lousy gadgets I’m gonna buy 😉 etc.

        We hope so =D

        Thanks much for the reassurance on this I only hope and pray it never changes for all of us that use it, i just hope there was some clause that says the chinese can’t move the company and its base operation to china,

  • druid23

    I’m doing some heavy calculations on my machine with process priority “lower”.

    Unfortunately many sub-processes of Opera are set to “lowest” which makes Opera unusable during heavy CPU usage.

    Is there a way (a flag) to make the standard priority “lower” and not “lowest” ?

    This issue is definitely better than last year, but still persists!

    The different look and behavior of the search fields on the pages “History”, “Experiments” and other

    Different look:
    “History” (blue cross): http://jpegshare.net/44/b5/44b5037b1a0c3e02ed2298d57142d910.png.html
    “Experiments” (gray cross): http://jpegshare.net/73/5e/735e40e05014d176646078393b999938.png.html

    Different behavior:
    “History”. The field is highlighted in blue (if you click on it with the mouse): http://jpegshare.net/dc/c8/dcc814b2302a7ffdfc89f3696d9f979c.png.html
    “Experiments”: There is no selection (if you click on it with the mouse): http://jpegshare.net/46/80/4680398c865c8e9fd8e7bbad074c7654.png.html

    Other internal pages have the same problem =( Please bring all to a single mind.

    Guys, how about a new beautiful design? Google is gradually implementing Material Design in Chrome, and you are still using an outdated interface =(

      Opera Neon? 🙂

        To see Opera Neon design elements in Opera would be really great 🙂

      How do you come to conclusion the theme is outdated? Imagination much? The theme on Windows 10 is perfect. Clean,simple and OS-related consistency.

      They pretty recently overhauled the theme on both windows 10 and osx…. IMO it’s hands down the best looking browser on windows 10.

    Sorry for raising this question again, but what’s about Opera Presto source code licensing?
    Do you plan to authorize Opera Presto to be maintained by community (after rebranding of course)?
    You’ve abandoned M2 mail client. And we could continue its development if you publish M2 under opensource license.

    How about addons sync? Why you have not already done that?
    Show me a list of old addons at least. That’s would be nice.

    hi, i have this version 41.0.2353.69
    the browser does not update itself
    in the about page, sometimes it says the version 42…——- is available and sometimes it says it failed to check updates
    i use windows 10 64bits

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Run the installer.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Run the installer.

    • Robert Tomaszewski

      Hi Dember Javier,
      As Leonardo pointed you can use the installer from https://www.opera.com (or the bog of the relevant channel: beta, dev, stable) to make a so called manual update if you do not want to wait for the autoupdate to come. However I just tried your scenario on my Win10 64 bit with installing a fresh 41.0.2353.69 and then open opera:about. After some time I got a red flag at O menu indicating the new version has been successfully installed. So I restarted and got 42.0.2393.137 – as expected. You can also try reloading opera:about in order to check the status or re-initiate the autoupdate. Please notice the update from the version older than 1+ ago can mean a little bit longer download time 🙂

      • Dember Javier

        thanks, I didn’t think running the installer,
        it solved my problem 😀

      all ok, may be you use adblock & etc.

      • romath

        Is it really ok if Opera’s ad block is preventing the videos from running? AdBlock Plus is not blocking them in FF or IE.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          It’s a list issue, the same problem happens if you use Ublock Origin.

    Guys, can someone help me? For Chrome there is an extension ( h264ify ) that makes all YouTube videos to play with Microsoft codecs ( avc/h264 ) and thus it uses DXVA properly. VP9 videos won’t use it fully, only the decoding is hardware accelerated. My Nvidia card doesn’t show Video Engine to be working properly. Is there something similar for Opera?

    • Ari

      For someone still wanting to know the solution:
      – Install extension “Download Chrome Extension”
      – Then go to Chrome Web Store and download any extension you want, in this case h264ify

    Just an FYI, the Full changelog link on here leads to nothing when using Opera Coast for iOS.

  • A bug that rendered my website useless has been fixed…thank you.

  • sgrandin

    Ran a third update to Win 10 1607: I open Opera beta from a launcher.exe icon on the Taskbar, but it still opens a second icon there, one that looks a little different than the standard (per screenshot link posted on the last beta comments). What is causing this?

    • sgrandin

      I’ve since discovered from pinning the second icon that it’s starting from the opera.exe file instead of launcher.exe. It’s called “Opera beta Internet Browser.lnk” and the current target is…”C:Program FilesOpera beta43.0.2442.52_0opera.exe” The pinned icon with dpi suffix is also opening a second tab: http://-/, which obviously can’t be reached (error message).

      I can modify each version with the dpi string, but why does the second icon exist and reference opera.exe instead of launcher.exe?

  • Turning on “Enable MFDemuxer on Windows” in the flags results in the browser renderer not working on relaunch on Windows 10 build 15014. I had to delete the “local state” file to clear the flags.

  • sgrandin

    I’ve found with this beta that the pause button on top of page videos at Yahoo often are unresponsive (ok with IE11), e.g., https://sports.yahoo.com/.

  • Videos do not play at http://etonline.com even with no extensions and with the Opera Adblock off It plays fine on the Stable version with my extensions.

    • Kornelia

      This one is confirmed and reported to our database. Thanks.
