missing functions

  • Hi, i upgraded my computer to Win 8.1 and together with it i downloaded new version of Opera (v 31.0).
    In comparison with previous version i used (about 2 years old) i am missing couple of functions, e.g.:
    -possibility to set middle mouse button in way allowing me to always open new tab (at the moment it doesn't work this way regularly, sometimes it works sometimes not)
    -cancel little closing "x" in right top corner of each tab - i used to close it via middle mouse button as well
    -be able to open new tab via clicking on top bar in browser by middle mouse
    -switch to previously opened tab by clicking on actual one (left mouse button)

    I tried to find solutions on my own on forums etc but without success.
    Many thanks for help.

  • It sounds like you were using the Presto version of Opera. It's a long story, but Opera had to move to the Chromium engine which it is currently rebuild. Opera's philosophy has not changed and it is actively working to bring back many of the functions that we remember from the Presto version of Opera.

    The middle mouse button can't be set yet. I believe the functionality you are referring to where the middle button sometimes opens a link in the same page is a bug. Removing the little "x" in the top right corner is not available yet.

    To cycle through tabs in recently used order try Ctrl+Shift+Tab. See more here: opera://settings/configureCommands for some of the keyboard shortcuts and to modify them.

  • Hi, ok, thanks a lot for answer.
    Do you (or anybody knows_ which latest version allows above mentioned functions please?
    I really prefer to have these, very ergonomic, functions available.
    Thanks

  • I would install the last in the Presto series:

    http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/win/1217/en/

    It should do what you want. It is somewhat old and no longer being updated.

  • Opera's philosophy has not changed

    I can't agree

    is actively working to bring back many of the functions that we remember from the Presto version of Opera

    Not sure if this is a true statement

    Do you (or anybody knows_ which latest version allows above mentioned functions please? I really prefer to have these, very ergonomic, functions available. Thanks

    Here you go

  • OK, i will try.
    Many thanks for your help!
