One new Opera's flag #highlight-duplicate-tabs-on-hover (disabled by default, work in progress)
When hovering a tab, display any inactive tab in the same window and workspace, which has the same address as the hovered tab in hover state.
Is there some feature you would love see added to Opera browser on computer? Let us know!
I tried this solution, but it's just as if it was installed thanks to the extension, except that you can install it without any problem without this extension. Me I just want to be able to set "FVD Speed Dial" as the default opening on Opera's home page because now you have to open a new tab to access FVD which I find really annoying, why do other browsers still allow us this choice and not Opera????
Seems to be resolved when using Opera on a different machine, though last time I tried it at home I was still getting the booking.com ads in the bar even after restarting the browser several times. I'll give it a try again when I get home later today.
@nonnox15 Have you tried with the VPN on? Some times a site is blocked due to a browser's IP address. I've had that happen to me a lot due to stupid FIOS assigning me IP's that were listed on all kinds of blacklists and they couldn't be changed no matter what due to Verizon's inept tech support. Also it could be your Antivirus as well. I suggest you see if you can exclude the blocked sites from your AV. If none of this works, then it's probably the site itself and there's nothing you can do until the site admins fix the problem.
This is fixed in 53.0.2907.106
Before when I scrolled, it was only grabbing part of it.
Got the answer here, in a dupe post:
For some reason that post showed up in the results of my "snapshot" search, but not this one.
If you connect directly to a (wired) network then Opera has to guess your location; if you have wi-fi then Opera looks at the list of hotspots your computer can see and asks Google where those would put you, And of course if you have some sort of cellular data card your carrier can tell them exactly where you are.
Last time I used my wired connection (ethernet) to my LAN they had me pinned at the local reservoir, about 4 miles away. On my laptop (wi-fi) they have me within 100 feet.
@juliandd One thing is not related to the other.
Opera Mail, the email client, allows you to access your email account as long as your email service uses POP or IMAP. If you will need to pay to use your email service or not is something you need to discuss with them and don't depend on the software you are using to read and send your emails.
Operamail, the mail service, is owned by Fastmail since a long time and only they can say if you will need to pay or not.
