Well... looks like I fix it. I hope, it's not for few hours.
All works fine after I delete my profile folder. - AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable
I made a backup. It save me from loosing my bookmarks, session and express-panel.
Opera, you shuld kill all your department who make synchronize service, fired them and send to Zimbabve. It's a complite mess and disaster.
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

@mryanmarkryan2 The feature for adding webm files as wallpapers is broken due to some upgrading of code. Hopefully, that will come back. And, hopefully mp4 supported will be added too.
For now though, the huge hassle way is:
Here's how you can convert an mp4 video to a webm file and zip it up so you can add it as an animated wallpaper:
Goto https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ and download ffmpeg to your desktop.
Extract the zip file to a folder and then rename the folder "ffmpeg".
Open a command prompt and run:
Move the mp4 you want to convert to the ffmpeg bin directory and rename the mp4 to "video.mp4"
Then, run this command:
ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -c:v libvpx -crf 30 -b:v 0 -an video.webm
Now you'll have the mp4 video as a webm video without audio as the file video.webm.
ffmpeg -i video.webm -vf "select=eq(n\,0)" -q:v 3 poster.jpg
Then, you'll have a pic of the first frame.
Then, create the following file in the bin folder (while filling in the info you want).
first frame image=poster.jpg
[Web UI Pages]
Then, zip up persona.ini, video.webm, and poster.jpg as background.zip. You can select the 3 files in Windows Explorer, right-click the selection, goto "Send to" and choose "Compressed (zipped) folder" to create the zip file if you want. Or, you can use a utility like 7-zip.
Then, in Opera, under Easy=setup, you just click "add wallpaper", switch to the directory background.zip is in, switch the filter drop-down to "Wallpaper archive" and open background.zip.
You can search Google for ffmpeg how-tos etc. if you need to do something more specific with the conversion.
Now, if you want to convert a webm file to an animated zip file an easier way than the above, you can have Opera 58 do it for you.
Download Opera 58, launch the installer, click "options", set "install path" to a folder named "Opera VBG" on your desktop, set "install for" to "standalone installation", uncheck "import data from default browser" and install.
In that Opera, add your webm file as a wallpaper and it'll be accepted as you'd expect. Then, close that Opera. Then, in the "Opera VBG\profile\data\themes" folder, you'll have a zip file for the video background that contains the proper stuff. You can then add that zip file as a background in newer versions of Opera and it'll work. It just won't have a poster in it. But, that's usually not a big deal. You could unzip it, add a poster and zip it back up though if you wanted to.

Yes, what you are describing is exactly the problem of this post. We are all waiting for a fix.
Here another workaround:
Press SHIFT+ESC (this opens the Opera Task Manager)
End process "Extension: Video Handler"
Repeat step 3 (because it is restarted once)
Only lasts until you restart Opera
"Opera Video pop-out" is not available (if you do not know what that is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEwdu2F_Rdw#t=1m20s
@floflo203 the only solution that really fixes the problem with having to hide the bar manually is to:
move all of the bookmarks from bookmarks tab folder to another folder (I just removed them all as I dont use that folder and all bookmarks were the default ones as facebook and aliexpress)
when you now add new bookmark by clicking the heart icon, the bookmark tab will appear, and the page you bookmarked will appear there, BUT only for a split second, before the edit bookmark window, where you can choose different folder, initializes
if the bookmark folder you saved your latest bookmark to is different than bookmark tab folder, the tab will be hidden, if not, it will stay
