@operaoperandi said in Minimized Opera won't restore:
macOs knows both behaviors: yellow button for "minimize" and red button for "minimize". If you open Safari for example and then minimize it with the red button, macOS will close the window, but not terminate the app! Click the red button again and macOs will "restore" (open) instantly a (new) window again but not the old session. That's what I meant.
What do you mean, restore with the red button? There is no red button if the window is minimized or if the interface is closed. There is just an image in the dock. If you click the image in the dock, you get back the window.
@concretable The precise point here is that if you click the image in the dock, you DON'T get the window back. If you close all your windows with the red button, you have to either do "file-new window/tab" or "cmd-n" to get a new window to open. The icon in the dock does nothing (unless you quit Opera completely and start again). That's the issue we're talking about.
I quite agree. It's yet another pain in the rear that the devs decided to force on their users. Opera used to be one of the best browsers out there, then China had to go and ruin it when they took over. So now i have to add the bookmarks and extensions pages like I did with the tabs page (for when Tabs aren't syncing) to my Speed Dial so I can get to them quickly without having to constantly switch the damned sidebar off and on or right click on Speed Dial. I liked it much better when the sidebar stayed put on the Speed Dial only. Now, it's either no sidebar or permanent.
i saw this problem coming. First, Opera developer stopped 3-finger gesture, after update beta, and now, Opera itself stopped it.
Unfortunately, Opera downloaded itself automatically, and installed it from self.
I can not use Opera without switching easily forward /backward with gestures.
SO, is there any possibility, getting Opera 58?
Otherwise I have to change Browser.
This trouble with Mac-Gesture occured already in the Opera-History.
So I use the little extension to close all other tabs but the button is on the right and I can’t put it on the left.
So let me ask the question again: when would it be possible to “close other tabs” by double clicking on current tab?
I used TabMixPlus on Firefox and that was great. I wonder why on Opéra, it is not possible to configure this.
As far as I know, this is how it suppose to work. Full screen doesn't mean full page.
Opera used to have it but it was having lots of issues so it was replaced by 'save as PDF' that will gibe you a snapshot of the page.
I had the same gripe about Opera when trying it out. There's two solutions
Enable shortcuts in Advanced settings. The default tab cycle hotkey is 1 (back) and 2 (forward). The flaw in this is that the webpage may also be using number input i.e filling forms, youtube.
You can customise a hotkey! This is what I did and there is a tiny learning curve but it's probably well worth it for a great browser! (I'm still new to it).
You can stop Opera from updating itself by entering this code into the Msc Terminal app:
defaults write com.operasoftware.Opera OPDisableAutoUpdate true
Actually, I found Opera 54 to be the most functional version. I am now using version 60 because versions 57 and 58 crashed if I tried to open Preferences, and they were also slow.
