@nvmjustagirl I have disabled all extensions and confirmed blackouts still happened. I have Opera 53.0.2907.99 running on windows 10 EDU x64 build 17134. Graphics 1 Intel HD 4600 driver ver 10.18.15.4279, Graphics 2 Nvidia GTX 960M driver ver 126.96.36.19931. I don't think the Nvidia graphics was running while I was using Opera. If it was I would have noticed activity in the tray bar.
My Song of the Morning today was Classical Gas.

Judging from some of the recent similar negative comments at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.opera.app.news&hl=en_US&showAllReviews=true, there are others with the same issue. You might try contacting the app's feedback line at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The last thing I want in the tab bar is scrolling. I do not want space in that bar wasted with scroll buttons. I also want to see all the tabs I have open. If I cannot read them because they are small, there is the Tab menu button.
