New Opera developer 45

  • @Tree189
    They will add more Messenger apps progressively.

    @Glorygore

    It's your installation clean? It's first time ODev install?
    Welcome to Opera forums!

    :wait: :sherlock:

    😕 Are you talking about ODev and Fb Messenger on Desktop¿?

    play store for Android

    😕 😕

  • Opera Developer 45 seems to work fine - except that having activated the sidebar to use Facebook Messenger (an excellent feature) there seems to be no way to get it to retract. With OD 44 I was able to click on the FBM icon to toggle showing/hiding it, but that does not seem to work on OD 45. It would be great to see that reinstated on the next update (I think the same comment holds for WhatsApp too).

  • Welcome to Opera forums @Phillip21!

    There is an arrow left down to hide the sidebar or Ctrl + Shift + M.
    That's what you mean?

  • Hi @phillip21 @zalex108, regarding the shortcuts for the Side Bar, there are two separate functions available:

    1. Show sidebar: no shortcut added by default, but you can assign it in opera:settings/configureCommands > Show sidebar,

    2. Toggle sidebar's recently used messenger: it has default shortcut Ctrl(Command on Mac)+Shift+M, which you can change also in opera:settings/configureCommands.

    Dev version 64bits.
    Thank you

    Here it works well in a profile in use and in a new one.

  • Hi, i have two problems with this version:

    1. I cant cast to chromecast, youtube, twitch, netflix...
    2. Notifications from whatsapp dont show in osx and w10

    thanks, the best browser now

    One question, do you will integrate twitter on sidebar?

  • Clean install. I just entered my email and password, and then nothing happens...

    Do you use any proxy?

  • Unfortunately the link preview/hover/popup in the bottomleft corner is gone.

    Internet feels a lot unsafer, if you don't know where you go.

    Missing it a lot.

  • [code]We lowered flash requirements to version 23, so Linux users don’t have to install the latest flash."[/code]

    Doesn't that mean that you allow flash versions with known and unpatched vulnerabilities.

  • Since 45.0.2522.0, the messenger does not collapse anymore on a second click on the button.

  • Unfortunately the link preview/hover/popup in the bottomleft corner is gone.

    It's still here.

  • Since 45.0.2522.0, the messenger does not collapse anymore on a second click on the button.

    Works here.

  • I'd like to see Skype, Twitter and/or Discord added to the side bar. I love this update so far, but I use neither WhatsApp or Messenger. It looks really nice from what I've seen of it, and I'm tempted to switch over to only using the Opera version of those apps if they're added.

    I'm curious if perhaps there couldn't in the future be a way to add other apps to the side bar using extensions, or perhaps even a built-in feature?

    Does not work here 😕

    The platform is Ubuntu 14.04, although I guess this should not be related.

    To make it close, I have to right click on the sidebar, disable FB messenger (to close the pan) and enable it again (to get the button back)

  • Try with a Clean Profile, here is the "How to" Frequently Asked Questions (Opera for Windows) .

    Just adjust to the OS paths and the appropriate file explorer.

    What may be relevant, is the window manager: i3wm with a “focus follow mouse” feature. I suspect this, because before this update, the pan was also automatically collapsed whenever I clicked outside of it, and it does not work anymore neither. So may be the issue is related to the way the focus is handled since this Opera update.

  • More annoying, I don't get any notification of new messages. If there are new messages, when I click the button, I get a blank pan where no conversation is selected (was not the same before). When I clicked on the conversation, I saw new messages, but there was no indicators of these: no sound and no red big dot.

    It's broken now, while it was working before (I don't remember what was the previous Opera version).

    I'm giving up with this feature, and will fallback on the messenger in a tab instead.

    Well, I'm on Windows 10 so I guess it may be related. 🙂

  • It seems to have memory leak.
    Browser process exceed 1GB memory usage.
    Sometimes it shows out of memory
