@moonik I wonder how a Google search would lead to this topic.
As I said, I don't have any links here, so you will have to search by yourself.
However, it's not very difficult to find out how to answer the question.
When I full screen a video on youtube, then I un-fullscreen the search bar and sidebar disappears meaning I can not search anything or go back. I have tried pressing F11 but that does not work. My only option is to force quit the browser every time.

@ahabig said in option to disable sidebar.:
@viewer2012 said in option to disable sidebar.:
Yes. In fact, I am back on this forum because it just turned itself back on and took up half my screen with an ad for facebook. Not cool.
Same here - disabled adverts for Facebook etc, disabled sidebar in settings but keeps popping up with ad for (currently) Facebook Messenger which I never actually use at all.
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
I may be wrong but isn't the point of a forum like this to feed back users experiences, annoyances and possible issues to help the development?
I'm on Version:69.0.3686.95 and for every time it updates also and perhaps by the time I've written this a new update.
Well fancy that, on checking the version number it's updated to Version:70.0.3728.106 and guess what has popped back in, the Side Bar.
So to summarize, could this stop happening? This is on two separate machines and both have Side Bar disabled.
I just want to thank this thread for telling me about Vivaldi.
I've been using Opera since back when you had to pay for it (which I gladly did).
One of the reasons I loved it was the fact that everything was customizable, which is something that has being going away ever since the Presto engine went bye-bye.
Another reason was the small, innovative features that set it apart from the mainstream browsers, like mouse gestures, links and info panel, Dragonfly, recently closed tabs, completely custom search engines, etc.
Many of those things have already disappeared into the sunset, or replaced by more generic functionality copied from other browsers, and like many people in this thread, the recently closed tabs functionality just being removed (twice) was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. It's a feature I use instinctively, and not having it in that spot hopelessly slows down my browsing.
Within 10 minutes of installing Vivaldi, I was back at the browser Opera used to be.
Sad to say goodbye, but as others have pointed out, Opera has been steadily becoming more 'our-way-or-no-way'. And if I wanted that, I'd be using Firefox or Chrome. I understand it is a free product, but I was happily paying for it before it became free, and would gladly still do so if it meant getting the old, innovative Opera back, instead of this paid-for-by-Google Chrome cosplayer.
Do you people think you could try and keep your installation files organized instead of spewing them all over our computers like a kindergarten playground, even in totally unrelated folders??
Honestly, you'd think the stuff was put together by a bunch of first graders.
Bye Bye to Opera for me, I'll stay with the professionals.
@leocg said in DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN:
In fact it's due to a improvement, I guess at least.
Starting with the 70th version of the Opera, I also encountered this error. The error is random, disappears after reloading the page. There is no such problem in Chrome. I tried to find out what's the matter through DNSQuerySniffer: sometimes the site's DNS requests pass the DoH function, in this case this error occurs in Opera, Chrome DoH does not pay attention to it.
This appears to be a DoH security feature of Opera, although I'm not sure if it's convenient.
@l33t4opera said in Opera stable 70 - news:
@iamkarthik, @vegelund The flag #force-color-profile is back in the stable .95, so you can update and check if it works for you ;-)
Jolly good! Thanks for your support and update @l33t4opera
#force-color-profile is back in opera://flags/ and all is well.
The "advertisers" come up with a new option, how to deliver their "product" to the user. So it's sometimes inevitably to catch some ads on websites. But usually it's quite easy to watch youtube without annoying ads.
2020 Not only is their forest fires, the sun was red, a CV19 pandemic, riots, the Olympics were cancelled. But to top that off my Opera Speed dials are not working.
They work on my laptop fine (Tho I haven't fully turned the power off yet) But on my desktop, they disappear each time I turn off and do not link with my laptop even tho I sync them with the same email address?
I just started using opera and every other feature that works like the left sidebar is a blessing and I don't wanna lose. But if this keeps up I will have to migrate to another browser?
P.S I don't seem to be able to stack tabs either? I try dragging them onto each other but that does not seem to work?
@pratyekmeal6 said in General Questions About Opera Topic:
how can I open web pages in the sidebar?
At the moment, you can't. In Opera developer builds, you can enable an experiment that allows users to add sites to the sidebar.
