First character of search terms won't appear

  • Wow, what a difference since changing from whatever version of Opera I last had. That previous version was fast, stable, usable, and completely smoked any browser I've ever used.

    First question, how can I tell exactly what version I switched from to this current state of affairs? Perhaps it's petty to complain like this about free software, but the new version ...I can't stand it. I need to switch back.

    My main complaint is that when I tap the URL/search box and begin typing a new query, the first character rarely shows up. If I tap and type, I end up with This NEVER happened with the old version and it's driving me crazy now! It might have been manageable but this current "upgrade" just lags so much on my phone anyway that the whole experience is aggravating.

    Also can I turn off instant search suggestions?

    Why is it that this version reloads tabs whenever I switch back and forth? The old version rarely did that, and I could seriously have over 90 tabs open at a time. Yes, that's necessary for me.

    The absurdity of this is I tried giving feedback not long after downloading this new version but the Opera browser seemed to have compatibility issues with the Opera feedback page. Please help, I don't want to switch to some lousy Chrome or Firefox app!

  • i have the same problem with lagging. Opera always lagging, freezing, and giving white screen on startup on any devices. I'm very disappointed of customer supporter. they are not happy and kind like UC browser supporters. they don't even say "hi, dear", "thanks for using Opera", "thanks for your kindly support!" etc... they just don't care and mark problem as solved. that's it. and starting to ignore us. reporting bugs are useless now because they don't listen to us. what the hell are those guys having social issues? are the guys like pewdiepie, tobygames, ComedyShortsGamer, or wharever who are always doing bad behavior? are they playing games or doing LAN party i
    at their work?

    I have requested Opera to add sort as A-Z on bookmarks, but instead, they have removed some features from bookmarks. now what is going on here?

  • come on, be a social like others. i'm not going to be a social with supporters until they change their mind

  • So is there a way to change back?? I found the archive of old versions but they're OLD versions. I just want whichever one I had two weeks ago.

    Apparently this new version also switched the format for uploading pictures to a website. The old version took me right to my gallery where I could easily choose a picture, but now the upload process involves going through laggy folders and subdirectories. Why do this? I don't understand...
