Gestures do not work on Win8.1

  • I used right click and then quickly left click to go back. Correspondingly left and then right click to go forward.
    It does not work on Win8.1 anymore in a way it did couple of Opera versions ago.
    I'd say it works sometimes on some pages.
    And I suspect this is because gestures timing has been changed somehow.

    Moreover hold right mouse button and move mouse left (to go back) does not correcly work either - sometimes it gets me not one but 2-3 pages back. It looks like these gesutes are too much mouse-sensitive.

    Is there any way I can control sensitivity of a gestures?

  • What version of Opera was the last version where it worked for you on Windows 8.1?

  • Hard to tell, I'm not using this home PC every day - mostly on weekends.
    It could autoupdate few versions without my noticing it.
    The same Opera version (30.0.1835.88) is on my office Win7 desktop and there are no issues there.

  • That is the current version. Maybe something has had its configuration changed on your home machine.
