A little suggestion (tile colour, video and gif arrow)

  • This is not very important, but there are 2 things that really bug me. If anybody from Opera browser for Windows PC development (or anybody) would change them I would be really grateful.

    1. This small arrow pointing up/down and sideways which appears on videos and gifs and opens a smaller video or gif copy when pressed. It often hid text of videos I watch so I really wanted to turn it off. I found something about going to opera:flags#media-detachable-view to disable it, and it works. Still, please remove it! At least remove it from default settings. A way to turn it off was too hard to find. And I still don't understand what it was for, besides annoying me and probably plenty of other users.
    2. When I save a link on Speed dial it is automatically assigned a colour. Very often the colour does not fit site theme, and it gets harder to find site among other tiles. I would appreciate an option to manually change colour of a tile.

    That said I really appreciate all hard work Opera development team have put it this product. Thank you.

  • For item one IIRC that option is called the 'Video pop out'. Search for that in settings.

    For item two the color is based on the dominant color on the website. If you don't like that color you can try just using an image from the webpage or a thumbnail of the webpage itself. You can change this at the time of creating an after by using the bookmark editor. You can open the editor on an existing bookmark or speed dial entry by navigating to the website and clicking the heart icon to the right of the address bar. Using the arrow buttons that appear to the left and right of the bookmark's thumbnail to change it. You can al;so use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out on the thumbnail and the mouse pointer to recenter it.
