  • The last couple versions of Opera have created an issue in which it is randomly locking the volume at whatever level it's set at. I can change the volume level and the little pop-up shows the volume is changing on the screen, but the actual volume does not change. I can't change the volume again until I quite Opera. It also causes a problem in which new audio devices won't show up until I quite Opera. For example, when I connect my Bluetooth speaker, it will not show up on the audio devices list until I quit Opera. Finally, this issue occasionally cause iTunes to stop playing music right in the middle of a song and the music cannot be restarted without first quitting Opera.

    Anyone else having this issue? Any resolution?

  • Yes I have that issue (except the volume one).
    Oddly enough, it sometimes works. As in, I switch on my bluetooth headphones, they show up in the list and I can switch to them.
    But often it prevents them from showing up. Or they show up but switching to them does nothing.
    Those problems are then fixed by either closing Opera or doing "sudo killall coreaudiod" in the terminal. Which is annoying.

    Why and why it works or doesn't I don't know. Also no idea how to fix it.

  • The last bit was supposed to mean "Why and when it works or doesn't I don't know. Also no idea how to fix it."
    I'm so good at typing...
