Bookmarks will only open in last tab created

  • @bidibidibidi I'm pretty sure I replied before in this thread :). Still have not been able to reproduce the issue, so if you know how to that would be good.

  • I don't know how to post a picture on this forum so I guess I'm typing a bit for this:

    Four different machines, I don't have the MacBook Air that started this online so I'll have to get the info from it tonight. I've also got another Mac Mini that for some reason is showing a yellow screen when trying to use Share Screen. That just started with latest OS X update. Have to get that tonight as well. If only to make sure they're all reading the same version of Opera as well as OS X

    Mac Mini. When I had this in the About:// page it worked correctly:
    Version: 39.0.2256.48 - Restart Opera to update to version 42.0.2393.94
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Mac OS X 10.11.6 64-bit

    When I clicked on the relaunch now the bookmarks from the menu bar opened in the opposite window (incorrect way of opening)
    Version: 42.0.2393.94 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Mac OS X 10.11.6 64-bit

    Well... HELL. I should have stayed with the old version.

    MacBook Pro. Bookmarks from the menu bar open in the opposite window (incorrect)
    Version: 42.0.2393.94 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Mac OS X 10.11.6 64-bit

    iMac. Note on this, a few days ago I saw that it was still behaving correctly so I disabled the bookmarks sync. It remained behaving correctly until this morning. DAMN! So it's not the sync. I did NOT update the version nor anything else on the system from the past week where it was behaving to this morning where it was not and the version has not changed.

    Still iMac. Bookmarks from the menu bar open in the opposite window (incorrect) started this morning
    Version: 42.0.2393.94 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Mac OS X 10.11.6 64-bit
    Version information

    Mac Pro. Bookmarks from the menu bar open in the opposite window (incorrect) has been doing this for a week now:
    Version: 42.0.2393.94 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Mac OS X 10.11.6 64-bit

  • Formatting does not stick around apparently. Those were in the format of the about:// screen with new line/carriage returns after each value. Oh well, still readable and you know how it's supposed to look.

  • Look up in the "History opens in the wrong window" He's got the same thing going on and yes this is the same actions as bookmarks. Single history thing opens in another window, show all opens in the current window.

  • Trin, thanks for the detailed answers.
    I am still having the same problem since the latest update on my Macbook Pro: version 42.0.2393.94. Ever since that update, whenever I choose a bookmark from the top Bookmarks menu or choose anything from History, the selected website does not open in the tab I am currently using. Instead it opens up in a tab on a minimized Opera window. I have 5 Opera windows open, each with various tabs, with 4 windows at a time minimized. When I choose a bookmark or history, it will generally open in the left most minimized window's visible tab, but sometimes it will open in a different tab. Since the update it will never update in the tab I am using.

    Avi, let us know how to add pictures, and I can replicate it.

    Thank you.

  • Update. All of those machines are now updated to Sierra and are exhibiting the same behaviour.

    For instance, this is the MacBook Pro:

    Version information

    Version: 42.0.2393.94 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Mac OS X 10.12.2 64-bit

    Pretty much the same for all of them.

  • Brand new update as of 1/20 6pm, and it does not fix this problem that the last update caused.
    Well Done Opera!

    Opera, email when you have fixed this, and I will come back from Safari.

  • Rumor control has it this is fixed and will be part of the next release.

  • Do bookmarks not open in a new tab? Maybe they do for me because I have an extension called V7 Bookmarks.

  • This has already been fixed, see https://forums.opera.com/topic/19702/bookmark-history-selection-opens-in-wrong-window/2

    When I updated from 42 to 44, the problem was indeed gone. Considering that no one in this thread has reported the issue since January, I think it's a done issue. Triandroid, maybe you are still running an old version?

  • WOOHOOO!!! I was running 43.0.xxx Now 44.0.2510.857 It works properly, opens bookmarks in the tab active in the active window.

    Thanks, all!
