Facebook Messenger ( Issue

  • I have noticed an issue with Opera for the Mac when using In the left column, when the message preview text extends all the way to the right border, the gear icon the normally appears when hovering over the message does not appear like it does in other browsers. This appears to be related to the layers being used, but I am not sure what is going wrong.

  • Yep, we're aware of this one and are trying to get it fixed, either on our side or on Facebook's side.

  • I just noticed the problem still persist even in Opera 32. It's odd because I haven't seen this issue in any other browser (I've tried Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Edge.) Since Opera is built on the open-source version of Chrome, why would Chrome display correctly and Opera not?

  • Because they serve different content to Opera, even though they shouldn’t ;).

  • Wow. That is really frustrating. Seems like that would be such a simple fix for them. And, while I know Opera isn't the most popular browser in the world, it seems with all the users they have, a sizable population would be using it.

    It's frustrating. Because of some connection issues, my friends and family mainly use Messenger to computer. It would be nice to have a non-glitchy experience while using Opera.

  • It seems that Facebook is already rolling out a fix for this (for some users it's already fixed), so I think this should resolve itself.
