Opera 20 final release

  • yes I was exactly referring to pasting
    And lack of "select all"

  • But I cannot replicate this.

  • I want to add a little correction to my post so I can report the behavior correctly, in "when you long-press a blank area it always selects a character before or after prior to pasting".

    @doministry I can do it here. If you touch the blue cursor handler without moving it it'll look like this image (a pop-up for paste, which will paste without affecting the surround area like long-press is doing in Opera up until now):

    Android paste feature example

  • On my phone it doesn't work as I said.
    There is no paste.

  • However this method works in other apps.

  • sometimes crashing and frooze. I'm using Samsung galaxy s2 gti9100 with android jelly bean 4.1.2

  • The fact that the backround open tabs are reloading when entering them is just terrible.
    The workflow is very bad due to that.

    I agree, we are suffering with this since Opera 16. It should be fixed ASAP.

  • Oh, and I reported the issue with the long-press paste as ANDEX-8492.

  • Hi All,

    we have just released a bug fixing update to Opera 20.

    What was changed:

    • Fixed issue where passwords were sometimes not stored
    • Fixed issue with empty tab manager thumbnails
    • Fixed issue with speakerphone always on when Opera was left in the background
    • Fixed issue with loading spinner after session restore
    • Fixed crash while playing video on specific sites
    • Intake of chromium minor update that came with security fixes

    The update is available now in Google Play. All users are recommended to update.We are looking forward to your feedback!

  • Hi Bartosz, thanks for the info about new update, and for the fixes. Why this build is not available on the ftp servers?

  • Sorry for that, it should be available soon.

  • Thanks for your reply. It's good news, because I was worried, that it will be not available there at all :-)
    BTW: it's already there ;-)

  • The issue with empty tab manager thumbnails is not fixed for me. You know the details from the BTS.

    Thanks.

  • what is the reason of the fetish to autohide toolbar on tabletui ?

    is it difficult to keep 4-5 tabs to keep active while 340 mb ram is available as chrome does it ?

    why dont you focus on these main things.

    Exactly. Instead of fiddling with UI Opera should finally make the basics work.
    Or maybe they do it in purpose? Maybe their aim is to be behind others? I'm terrified by the lack of progress in those areas.

    BTW OffRoad mode is a terrible piece of j..nk.
    I just quit using Opera this way alltogether.
    I remember Opera browsers rendering so quickly on Edge, now it takes ages.

    I'm afraid Opera will be eaten soon. They will succeeed in Java platforms like they did in the past but since MAJOR issues are unresolved FOR YEARS now, I don't see a reason why things would immediately change.

    Shame total shame. I strongly recommend naked browser, it beats Opera in every way besides UI.

  • The issue with empty tab manager thumbnails is not fixed for me. You know the details from the BTS.
    Thanks.

    Guys and gals, sorry, it's fixed after I updated to the newest CyanogenMod for my phone. :)

  • Opera 20 is REGULARLY freezing on Sony Xperia Z.
    Despite it's advantages it's a software I would call beta. After years of development it is still beta.

    Now I would REALLY like to know if Opera is still working on this browser and treating it seriously? I mean if Opera ditches it maybe it's better to tell users they struggle without a reason. Would be good to know because now it's a shame, Opera.

  • I'm using a Nook HD tablet, and it's having no problems at all. Works great.

  • How come the problem with tabs always reloading when I get back to them is not yet fixed? This is there since version 15. I am using Galaxy S2.

    This is really annoying when on Facebook or 9Gag. These pages get Content every few seconds and once I switch the tab and get back the browser will reload the page automatically after half a second and the I lose my current reading position and have to scrool and search where I was earlier.

    This bug doesnt only happen once a while, it is 100% every time I get back to a tab which I had opened earler.

    Opera Beta has the same issue as well.

    Another thing I am missing is that the text I input into a text field is wrapped like it used to be in version 12. In version 12 I never had to scroll sidewards while posting into a forum. The text was neatly wrapped in a way I just relaxed and scrolled up and down when was rereading or correcting it. Now I have to scroll like on and old type writer down, up, right, left and up again etc.. This feature is one of my great loses since version 12.
