Posting about your problem
After have done the steps above and confirmed that the problem is most probably in Opera, it's time to post about it.
Start the topic with a title that briefly describe the problem so people will know about what this is about.
Don't try to explain all the problem in the title.
Use tags to make it easy for other users to find posts about similar issues. If posting about Opera Mail then add the 'Opera Mail' tag
In the post (body) you should include the following information:
Your Linux distribution and version
Your version of Opera
If the problem is with a page, a link to it
A screen-shot of the problem if it's related to something not showing as should
A description of the problem, including as much as information as possible
Steps to (try to) reproduce the issue
Expected behavior and actual one
When I log into netflix and get Error O7355, I run this script. I have Chromium installed as a snap on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
cp /snap/chromium/current/usr/lib/chromium-browser/libffmpeg.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/libffmpeg.so.chromium.$DATE
if [ ! -f "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/libffmpeg.so.opera.$DATE" ]; then
cp /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/libffmpeg.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/libffmpeg.so.opera.$DATE
cp /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/libffmpeg.so.chromium.$DATE /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/libffmpeg.so
I have had to do this every single time opera updates.
Given I don't expect the fastest of resolutions, I went ahead and downgraded to 70.0.3728.95 (available here) and I got all pop-up menus back.
For those that hardware acceleration is not an option, this is the alternative for now, I guess. Hope this helps.
Making it black doesn't fix the problem I'm mainly worried about - when I'm playing games, the site doesn't even register the mouse when it's at the top of the screen, which is Insanely annoying. The line I have is a single pixel thick, and I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.05
