Fix some things

  • Please help. Small but annoying things:

    1. On html5 video players, there's always a message, "example.com is fullscreen" with allow and deny option. I could just allow and always remember but my problem is I use too much inognito. The always allow history is also lost after closing the browser in private mode.
    2. Addons doesn't show up on toolbar in incognito mode. Why? It shows when yu open Non private tab, then private tab but you open private tab directly from taskbar or start menu, it doesn't show addons on toolbar.
    3. This is a feature request. Please add "Click to play" option for html5 players as well.
    1. Have you set the addons to work in private window? By default they don't work in private windows.
      Also, there is an old issue about extension icons not showing in private windows if they are opened directly.

    2. AFAIK, settings for pages opened in private windows are not kept.

  • Yes, I have set addons to work on private mode. They just doesn't show if private window is opened directly. Long ago they used to show up. Like on version 30 or 31 they used to show up. Not sure why Opera made them not show up or is this some kind of bug.

    Yes, thats my problem. I have to open non private tab, load the video site again and save the settings. Why isn't there an option to "Always allow fullscreen option"? There was option to do this in opera://flags in older version. Why do they remove this?

  • There was option to do this in opera://flags in older version. Why do they remove this?

    Because the experiment has ended.

    Not sure why Opera made them not show up or is this some kind of bug.

    Probably a bug but one with a very low priority to be fixed as it seems.

  • Why would they end something like that? Does html5 fullscreen had some security issues? If so then why do flash videos don't show popups, flash is so much vulnerable to security than anything. Oh well, it seems this isn't a major problem for users so they probably won't fix it. I'd use other browser but they aren't as good as Opera so I think I'll gp back to my non incognito habit again.

  • Why would they end something like that?

    Because it was an experiment and experiments need to end at some point.

      1. Addons doesn't show up on toolbar in incognito mode. Why? It shows when yu open Non private tab, then private tab but you open private tab directly from taskbar or start menu, it doesn't show addons on toolbar. *

    Yes, this issue still exists. Although reported many times, opera team is spending its time with other things those are not urgent but still cannot fix this issue. Probably they do not know how to fix as well.

    To anyone at opera team; please fix this issue. There were many new versions but stil one still keeps annoying people. We cannot see extension buttons if we start opera in new private window from taskbar jump list...

  • @leocg, OK. But when I first used Opera, I think it didn't have this annoyance(the fullscreen on html5). You could allow it on all sites with some option or trick or this wasn't there in the 1st place. Maybe I don't remember as I wasn't regular Opera user that time. Experiment or not, its not a good thing to bring annoyances. Don't fix things if they're not broken. Or did it cause some security issues and Opera team removed that option?

  • But when I first used Opera, I think it didn't have this annoyance(the fullscreen on html5).

    I really don't remember if Opera Blink had that warning in its beginning.

    You could allow it on all sites with some option

    You are probably talking about the flag that allowed to disable the experiment and, therefore, the warning.

    Well, flags are not settings for the users to enable or disable some feature. They are for developers to enable or disable experiments they want to check.

    Experiment or not, its not a good thing to bring annoyances

    I remember that there was some discussion on it but it seems that they decided to keep the warning.

    Or did it cause some security issues and Opera team removed that option?

    In fact there never were such option.

  • To anyone at opera team; please fix this issue.

    As mentioned before, it seems to be something with very low priority as very few people seem to open private tabs windows directly.
