That happens if you are running in compatibility mode. Right click your shortcut, choose Properties and go to the Compatibility tab. Turn off the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode for:". Click OK to dismiss the properties dialog. Close and restart Opera and the border should be gone.
I've had the same problem not being able to access Google Services, inclusive of GMail, YouTube and a plethora. I even left a message on Twitter for Google, of course not connecting Opera's most recent update until I tried for the umpteenth time to my dismay.
Could someone in the team rectify this please? Also suddenly everything is slowing down with the new update. I was getting a pop-up to input a username/password for lazerpenguin.com? or .net? can't recall but get that when I reboot Opera.
Would appreciate your hard efforts in rectifying the situation.
Bonne Année !

This page does not work
mail.google.com has redirected you too many times.
@jimunderscorep said in Opera keeps crashing 3-4 times in a row:
I think you will have better luck if you ask at the opera services part of the forum, because your problem is not linux opera itself but its bad syncing with its services.
Thanks for the tip! Seems like others experience the same issue I have.
Already filed a bug report too.
Luckily, on one of all my machines it didn't brake, so I was able to quickly make a backup of my bookmarks and for now, imported them manually back to my broken Opera's. Will now look for a solution to get sync working again.
Let's talk about latest and greatest in Opera world: experimental builds, beta and developer versions
Recent versions seemed to be limited, even before R3. Though unless you had a huge display you wouldn't know. With the smaller size of the tiles in R3, it is just more obvious. (And yes, when I posted my comments to the developers that was one of them - that with the smaller tiles I could probably have 9 per row, but instead I have huge margins on each side.)
How can I disable Auto-Update?
In Opera's installation folder (Menu > Help > About Opera for the path), find the folder with the current build and rename the auto updater executable file inside it.
Type the following into a terminal:
defaults write com.operasoftware.Opera OPDisableAutoUpdate true
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
New update - Opera stable 58.0.3135.65 ;-)
The change log, and the announcement.

Hmm ... I know that for many people google.com redirects to their local version - if that is true for you then we can't help you. But if searching in Google.com does stay in the U.S. site then you could edit your location to the U.S. as listed in the FAQ.
@dennism said in Opera VPN not working in UAE:
For the last 4 days the VPN service is not working, I just get an 'orange' VPN and it just says 'connecting' - but it never does? I have cleared the cache, checked my virus software, cleared that as well amd done a re-install of opera - still no VPN?
What is wrong? ...
I suggest directing your attention to an earlier post regarding VPN problems that I made in the https://forums.opera.com/topic/30470/vpn-not-working thread, copied below:
Opera currently operates its own VPN servers; it used to use SurfEasy's when the VPN capability was first included in the browser. That change resulted in Opera offering only regional connections instead of country connections. In using a VPN, multiple steps (and factors) are involved. When you employ Opera's VPN option, the browser obtains proper credentials and talks to the IP of a specified Opera proxy server, using an https connection (which inherently includes https encryption). When a user makes connection to a website URL, Opera's browser VPN mode sends packets to the IP of the VPN server using proxy-authorization request headers over the https connection. The VPN server performs a DNS lookup of the URL to obtain the website's IP and contacts that site. Site data is received by the VPN server, encrypted by https, and sent to the user, who then views the site as if he were able to visit it directly.
Things that might block the VPN from functioning would include:
Defective/corrupted https certificates for the VPN server as accessed by the browser, or unavailability on the user's system of the necessary encryption protocols specified by the cert and/or VPN server.
Blockage by the ISP or regional Internet backbone of the IP of Opera's VPN server.
Interference by the ISP or regional Internet backbone with proxy-authorization request headers in general.
Problems with the VPN server's DNS lookup of the user-sought URL.
VPN server problems in general.
Problems with a website responding to a particular VPN's IP (either intentional or accidental).
For regional VPN problems, special attention should be paid to items 2 and 3. Problems from those two causes are outside of Opera's ability to unilaterally remedy, and can only be resolved by the user directly consulting his ISP and/or regional Internet authorities (if that is deemed to be personally safe in that locale). An alternative might be to try to get through using another VPN service - not all of them may be blocked at any given time.
@sgunhouse LMAO the Overlay Scrollbar 'feature' in Opera is abysmal. It's unusable. It was like that since implementation.
Turn it on in Chrome and use it... Then turn it on Opera and try it...
It's an experimental feature that Chrome has got working flawlessly... Meanwhile, Opera... I've kept my eye on it since O50 and there's been no change.
It's been reported more than once.
No interaction? That's rather strong. Again, websites can open login forms in other (pop-up) windows as well as tabs. Lacking either of those - and presuming you aren't using some malicious add-on (extension) - there will be no communication between unrelated pages - whether those pages are in separate tabs or separate windows.
That does still leave history attacks (where a page has a bunch of links where you can't see them and checks to see if they are marked as sites you have visited or not) but either clearing history regularly or using a private window can prevent that.
