Hi, my name is Walt, I've been using Opera for over 8 years. Everything was great I was very intrigued even by cosmetic changes. However recently I've been very annoyed by the changes that are being pushed through, Opera is adapting to the filter around highlights, since a couple months ago an update was pushed through with a filter blocking the entire page when using the search engine, and today I noticed the pop-out video player lost almost all of it's functionality. there is no more audio adjuster, you can't skip to the next video anymore, you can't increase the window size anymore, has a cap now. Which is a huge problem for artists such as myself, needing the size to be a bit bigger than the original while also doing work at the same time, it was very flexible and handy until the latest update. ruined everything for me, and sad to say if nothing is being done about it, I'll have to resort to alternative solutions, very disappointing start to 2020.
@ralf-brinkmann Hi, in the future, when you are curious what's new in the latest build, but there's no "Setup" installer availabe, you can check safely the "Autoupdate.exe" one. Download it, and unpack it (just run the .exe) somewhere in separate (from the currently installed one) / custom folder. Then leave the "root files" (you can see them listed in the "root_files_list" file) in that folder, but you move all the rest of files to subfolder named "version_of_the_opera", e.g. "68.0.3581.0". After that, you can launch it as follows: "\new-opera's-root\version\launcher.exe" --user-data-dir="\new-opera's-root\fresh-profile" (and other switches, that you want to use).
@l33t4opera: Just to update you. It looks like the crash is related to multiple Opera windows being opened and then one of them being closed which causes the crash. I definitely remember the same exact crash in the past and it was fixed at some point. Clearly, Opera devs don't care to respond or fix regressions.
Is it possible to expect that the "picture-in-picture" will get the same functions as the old version?
Well, or how to stretch the window "picture-in-picture" in full screen?
The funny thing is that the old version on YouTube still works without bugs. But activated through the extension.
