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.

    Thank you.
