@wga When you open Gmail in Opera, you are not asked about using it to handle mailto links? See if Gmail i snot blocked at opera://settings/handlers
Regarding the second part, I don't think Opera can do it. At least on Windows, you need to use an extension to share pages.

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 OS (Linux, Mac, Windows)
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
@baturkacamak I created a simply script for getting images from posts.
Script is not complicated. it's simply. Is the same like you adding it for main window on browser.
// @name IG download IMG & VID
// @namespace http://tampermonkey.net/
// @version 0.1
// @description Get the instagram images & movie from everywhere.
// @author You
// @match https://www.instagram.com/*
// @grant none
console.log('"IG download IMG & VID" get started!');
How you see, it's simple script. Generally extension like Darkreader(from chrome store) or others extensions, also working on sidebar instagram. Whatsapp and Messenger only doesn't work. But . Sometimes messenger is black, which means, that darkreader work on messenger (he manages to break through). But I repeat. Only occasionally when browser (system) is loaded.
Recently I really thought the tamper was working in the sidebar, and that was just the "bug" I wrote about.
PS: Twitter also works.
I think I am just going to switch away from Opera, just need to move my bookmarks and such, can't get why do I have to debug such an obvious thing as opening up my history, or if I have to click on icons on such just to access bookmarks, whatever added functionality someone thought these features would do have actually moved away users from Opera.
Re: Vpn slows down internet speed too much
VPN speed has dramatically dropped recently. My connection allows 500Mbps and getting more than 5Mbps has been a challenge ans this change is recent. No more than 4 or 5 days. I understand that using a VPN affects my connection speed but this drop is recent and 5Mbps is nowhere acceptable. Surely this must be a problem. Before this change I don´nt recall what speed provided the VPN but It was much faster because I've noticed that browsing became a lot (a lot!) slower.
Did anyone experienced the same change?
