opera issue after update under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
an automatic update occured this morning including Opera browser among others.
Now black boxes appear instead of the normal drop-drawn menus - real issue when you want to have access to your favorites.
Are you using the 'nouveau' driver? If so, it's a bug related to that driver.
As a workaround until we have a fix available for this, you could:
- Disable hardware acceleration (in opera://settings, enable 'advanced settings', then disable 'hardware acceleration') OR
- Use the 'nvidia' binary driver
by disabling the hardware acceleration from Opera settings, the issue seems to be fix.
Thanks for the workaround
I had the same issue. By disabling the hardware acceleration it seems to be fixed.
