I probably should have said that in this post but i did have the tasks manager up, and it would show nothing happening with Opera GX even while it was playing the start up animation. Even tho the tasks manager is up it doesn’t show Opera starting even tho I can see it visually start the animation then pop up the window for Opera GX For half a second before crashing.
Making it black doesn't fix the problem I'm mainly worried about - when I'm playing games, the site doesn't even register the mouse when it's at the top of the screen, which is Insanely annoying. The line I have is a single pixel thick, and I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.05

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
Is there some feature you would love see added to Opera browser on computer? Let us know!
This is a copy of my GX forum request, since main-browser users presumably want the feature back just as much as GX users.
A recent update to opera removed the opera://flags/#search-in-open-tabs, which allowed users to keep Recent Tabs in leu of Search in Open Tabs.
I'd like the flag back, or (given that the search in tabs feature can now also show recently closed tabs) an option to have the new feature show up in the same way the old did.
The old feature showed up in a dropdown from the icon, which was great for when a user needed to quickly get back to a tab they'd just closed, whereas the new feature shows up over the center of the browser, which is great for searching, but not so great for getting back to recently closed tabs.
@sgunhouse Yes, that's it. It's more of a progressive thing however, if I am watching it the audio isn't out of sync with the film/tv show to begin with, but it slowly becomes out of sync, refreshing the page fixes that but only for a short while. I have only recently started using Opera, so I am unsure whether this could be due to an option that I could select in order to stop this from happening.
@rudrick said in How to modify the speed dial to look branchy, instead of tiles?:
Speaking of Speed dial - I miss Stash.
I use the Pocket extension for this purpose. You could also use the sidebar extension, V7 Stash. They both work excellently.
@bwall said in Location issues:
The Opera 48.0 Help page says
Settings > Preferences > Advanced > Network and uncheck "Enable automatic redirection".
But there is no such option!
Can you please tell me how exactly have you found this help page that says that? I am trying to reproduce but I don't see it if I open Help from within Opera 48.
Where I do see such suggestion it is on old Help pages for Opera 12 (Presto) - but you have to google that page up...
Thank you for the support and tips.
All you were right: one extension was leaking the real IP by WebRTC. For my surprise was "Privacy Badger" of EFF.
This extension set "Use default public network interfaces only" as default. In this option de real IP of ISP leaks.
For curiosity I also tried "Use default public and private network interfaces only" and "Use any suitable network interface (recommended)". Both leaked my ISP's IP and local router IP.
Thank you a lot!
@garypen Well I have tried it in the past (about a year ago) but mainly I don't like the forced Windows 10 look of it and I'm used also to Opera's method of creating thumbnails for the Speed Dial items, although I liked a lot that in Vivaldi you could have as many Speed Dials you 'd want to, contrary to Opera where it gets confusing and untidy if you have many. It shouldn't have any peformance problems (I found this also http://www.digitaljournal.com/internet/op-ed-vivaldi-s-new-version-1-12-browser-worth-trying/article/505723 confirming it), and its bookmarks method in a tree amongst many other things are more on the classic path of Opera Presto or Firefox.
