I hear what you say. Sorry to say -
However I did experienced that ref. version probably didn't update properly. After 50 years (I don't fool you) in IT sphere there is one thing I hate most of all; not having control of any kind of updates. (My fault not to stop auto update as I noticed that autoupdate...exe was removed from the installer folder). It's now set a stop in the Settings.
The last automatic update did not show up any pdf sections in the Settings, killed my password bank, neutralized automatic storing of new password, neutralized automatic fill in name, addr, etc.
When installing PDF viewer I was asked what local viewer I used. Typed that. When going into the Settings again, then I found the PDF option. I have one and only one addon. There were no Q's ab double installation !!
Rollbacking the last recovery; I restored all former misery except of one thing - PDF addon was gone. Then I had to reinstall the addon once again and to my surprise ir works perfect, no download window.
What actually happened, only heaven knows. What I do know after taking control my system works as I expected.
(except for one thing JW Player is only working if I play the video in a new tag, never directly from the source tag.
Can you test in Vivaldi and Chromium too to see what they do?
Are you on Windows 10? Maybe there's an updated driver that works better with Windows 10.
There might be something in the registry you can change for the ELAN settings. See https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/3lhmhq/win10_elan_touchpad_scrolling_issues/ for example for different issue.
Sometimes in the ELAN program files folder, you might find a config file that has per-program settings/overrides where there's one for chrome.exe, but not opera.exe. Or, there might be an opera.exe workaround in there that doesn't need to be there.
It of course could just be something with Opera, but not sure. In the device manager for the trackpad's properties, what's the hardware id for the trackpad? What driver version do you have?
If you uninstall the ELAN drivers and you still have 2-finger scrolling available with a basic Windows driver, does scrolling work fine then? There might be a Synaptics driver you can install instead. Depends on the actual trackpad you have though.
The issue you linked to has to do with the audio indicator animation in the tab causing high CPU usage when audio is playing. Downloading a file seems like a totally different issue.
When downloading a file at 2+ MB/sec (from yandex.net) Opera heavily eats CPU on my PC
Do you have a link to the file you're downloading? Or, is it an attachment in your email? I'm not seeing high cpu usage when downloading http://releases.ubuntu.com/19.10/ubuntu-19.10-desktop-amd64.iso for example in Opera 65.0.3467.48 64-bit on Windows 10.
@freydalynn said in Downloaded files repeat downloading instead of opening:
After downloading a file, when I click to open it from downloads it just downloads the file again (or creates a duplicate in downloads).
That sounds like the file type you're opening is associated with Opera in Windows for some reason, so it just opens in Opera and it's a file type that Opera can't handle itself, so Opera just downloads it again.
In Windows settings, I'd goto "Apps", then "Default Apps", then "choose default apps by file types" to make sure the types you're downloading are associated with the correct program.
If that doesn't help, in Opera, goto the URL opera://about and take note of the "profile" path. Close Opera and rename that folder using Windows Explorer. Then, start Opera back up and test. If it works fine with that new profile, then something's wrong with your normal profile that you can investigate. Close down Opera, delete that new profile folder and rename the old one back and then investigate.
@r161xx said in Speed dial take long time to appear:
BTW even when i uninstall opera and start new fresh profile and without any extensions
the problem is still there..!!
Definitely weird. I can't reproduce the problem. Maybe someone else can check. It could be something outside Opera that's interfering though.
Have the same issue and I've noticed that the autofill works but after many seconds, something which is make it unusable. Your solution is quicker but not optimal. Waiting for a reply from dashlane too but don't think that anything will change.
@burnout426 said in How to disable opera from starting up automatically at my notification bar?:
@gbras Yeah, it's fine. As long as the notification program is gone, you're good.
Thanks for the good info.
@clmopera said in Opera keeps constantly freezing over the past 6 months already:
Went to check on extensions.. lost as well, ok.. let download them back.. and bam, frozen again,
Sound like an extension is causing the issue then. Or, maybe something to do with Opera Sync after you log back in to it. Are you having it sync your settings too?
Try a fresh profile of Opera without enabling Sync and without installing extensions to see if you can still reproduce the issue. Maybe start Opera with the --disable-gpu switch just to see if it still does it.
If all else fails, create a new Windows user account and test Opera in it to see if your normal user account is messed up.
Opera isn't freezing for me or anything like that. Make sure you're fully updated though as there were recently some crash fixes.
@NanoSmurf said in Several of my extensions have stopped working recently:
-Youtube Refined (unsure where i downloaded this extension)
I see the URL for it might be https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/youtube-refined/bhbammekghlcjhbiekoldhpfgelblcni?hl=vi, but it's no longer there in the Chrome Webstore. You can try https://www.crx4chrome.com/extensions/bhbammekghlcjhbiekoldhpfgelblcni/. One of the crx download sources (besides the Chrome webstore one) might work.
I don't know if Opera 36 supports it, but you can modify the Opera shortcut to pass --disable-gpu to launcher.exe to see if it avoids the crash.
"C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" --disable-gpu
Or, at least goto "Menu -> settings -> browser -> system" and disable hardware acceleration and restart Opera.
I would download the Opera installer, launch it, click "options", set "install path" to a folder named "Opera Temp" on your desktop, set "install for" to "standalone installation", uncheck "import data from default browser" and install. In that Opera, log into sync and choose to only sync your bookmarks. Then, when the unwanted bookmarks come in, move them to the trash there and empty the trash. Then, sign out of sync and log back into sync. Then, check sync.opera.com again.
If they're still there at sync.opera.com, they might be stuck on the server for some reason where you'll then need to choose "reset my sync data" and start all over.
Before you do any of that though, right-click one of your open tabs and choose to save all open tabs as a speed dial folder. Then, export your bookmarks (at the URL opera://bookmarks) and your passwords (at the URL opera://settings/passwords) just for good measure.
@gp123 said in Opera Not Supported ??:
Login page does not list Opera as a "supported browser".
Oh, the list you get when you click to login at the top right of https://www.mysynchrony.com?
Some mouse and/or keyboard actions result in unexpected or no response.
Goto the URL opera://flags/#chromium-ua-compatibility and enable that, restart Opera and try again to see if that fixes things.
