Hot pink Menu/tab bar

    A couple of days ago I updated to Opera 45.0.2552.635, and as soon as I opened Opera I discovered that the Menu/tab bar was hot pink in color. I really DO NOT like pink! Since then, every time I open Opera, the bar is a different color. Right now it's a subdued mauve-pink. Once or twice it's been a pleasant green color. But mostly it stays in the pink range, from hot, almost neon, pink, to fuchsia, to mauve and some ranges in between. Why is it doing this and how can I change it? I can't remember what it looked like before the upgrade, but it was unubtrusive, and I'd prefer it be that way. This pink at the top of my browser is disconcerting!

    I am on Lubuntu 16.10 (x86; LXDE)

        I took a series of screenshots one right after another, closing and re-opening my browser between each. (I thought that they were taken a minute or two apart, but I discovered that they were just several seconds apart.)

          No idea, sorry :( Do you use any theme(s) (settings > basic > wallpapers)?

            I had used one of the basic wallpapers that (I think) came with Opera. I can't seem to find a way to have no wallpaper, now. There is a white wallpaper in the choices, but when I use it there's no effect on this hot pink menu/tab bar. In fact, none of the wallpapers I have make any changes to the issue.

            Thanks for looking!

            Wallpapers wouldn't change the tab bar background. If you enable the dark theme in settings, does it work?

              I don't have the hot pink but folders in my bookmark toolbar are always light blue since the upgarde to vers 45. The only way for me to comfortably see them is to use the dark theme - which I don't like much. If you find a way to stop the colour thing please post back. I'll do the same.

                I had never used the dark theme. So I enabled it and tried this again. The Menu/tab bar still changes color upon each reload of Opera. It started off with the beige color (same as my last screenshot), went to green, stayed green the second time, then went to the mauve-pink. I stopped before it could go to hot pink, which is the most annoying. Then I unchecked the "Enable dark theme" box, because I do prefer the lighter theme.

                  I had the same problem on Xubuntu 16.04 32 bit. After installing the 64 bit version the problem was gone.

                    I think your browser is trying to tell you something about yourself.

                        I too have noticed this -- the constantly changing tab bar/menu color is a major nuisance. Enough to make me stop using Opera! The depth of the colors makes it almost impossible to read the text on the tabs. I can find no way to opt out of this. Has anyone else had any success?

                          Hi, exactly the same issue here, after updating to version 45.0.2552.898 few days ago. Quite funny for the moment ;) but hope next update will solve this issue. Nothing to add, right description above from marchair.

                              Fyi, the latest stable version of opera is 46.x since late June.

                                I'm on Lubuntu -- Ubuntu 16.10 LXDE desktop. I have refused to upgrade to the latest version (Ubuntu 17.x) because I haven't quite figured this one out, yet. Perhaps that is why I can only download Opera 45.x? (I just checked again, today.)

                                  Mine is currently green, although it is often brown, and sometimes more orangey. It literally changes colours! :banana:

                                  Glad it's on the fix list - been driving me nuts looking for a preference and trying themes.

                                    I think that this bug will never be fixed. As it was said, there is no development of Opera 32 bit version now. The last version is 45. Another annoying bug - the "Menu" button becomes red, asking to install the latest security updates! After choosing it, you are redirected to download the same build of Opera! It's very sad!

                                      I hope they do fix it. Yes, my Menu bar is red right now, and I have a pink / grey background today for some reason...often it is all sorts of pastel shades.

                                          If you are on 32bit, you can not upgrade opera to 46 or newer, so you stay with opera 45 and the bug. And no, opera is not the only closed source linux software that has dropped 32bit support.

                                            It's very strange. Opera still develops new versions of 32-bit products for Windows. But there is no support for Linux. I understand that amount of Linux 32-bit users is too small, I think. As for me, I start to use Linux on my Asus EeePC because of the Opera. Windows 10 work fine on it, more better then Linux, but Opera for Windows works very slow! And I can't install 64-bit OS on this machine. The processor doesn't support it. :(

                                              Fyi, opera did not have a 32bit linux version back in 2013 when opera 15 was released, marking the switch from presto to webkit engine. The 32bit version came much later, I think after vivaldi was released with support for 32bit linux. And the same happens for chrome. Chrome on windows is available both 32 and 64 bits, on linux it is only for 64 bits.

                                                  I would move to vivaldi as well, if it was not for the crappy toolkit (electron) they use to make it... Yes, I really hate electron "apps" (in quotes because they are not really apps but pre-made web pages opened in a browser window).
