Opera Loses Focus

  • Hello All,

    Since 2 days I am noticing some strange issue with Opera. It does not get the focus when using Alt-tab sequence and that is so irritating. I want to switch from notepad to opera using alt-tab but Opera does not focus instead I have to minimize every other window to get focus on Opera.

    Has anybody encountered the same problem and if yes is there any solution?

  • Which Opera version? Which system?
    Can you please explain how to test this.

    In Windows 7 i can start Opera 20 with some tabs open, start Notepad, write something in Notepad and switch with Alt Tab from Notepad to Opera.

  • Has anybody encountered the same problem and if yes is there any solution?

    It happens sometimes here with Opera 21, i still couldn't realize if there is something that triggers it. And unfortunally, the only solution seems to restart Opera.

    I think some people talked about it on the blog.

  • I'd really like to know how to trigger that effect. I've even asked for it to be developed. It's very convenient when you want to open several links without Opera popping up to the front every time. But as of now, it seems like it's a random bug. 🙂

  • @angiesdom: system: win 7 64 bit, opera version: 21.0.1432.5

  • @dvk-ru1: I doubt that it would not be that helpful, if its a feature, there should be a setting to turn that thing off because it really irritates me.
