  • I hope Twitter app on new sidebar of Opera Dev 45! :cheers:

  • Youtube videos not working anymore … 😕

    It's working fine here.

  • There is search issue in History.

    ex: there are some result for "Thank you" and "you".
    set vpn on, search with "Thank you" and delete all result.
    and set vpn off, remove "Thank" to search "you", then there is no result.

  • Well, OK, time to give up with Opera. Opera is not anymore the same as it used to be with Opera Presto. This Opera Blink is only issues and bugs, unlike the good old Opera Presto.

    By the way, seems I'm not the only one to face this issue: https://disqus.com/home/discussion/operablogdesktop/private_project_reborn_hits_opera_45_developer_channel/#comment-3190700183

    I tried the hack, but it solved nothing

  • Hi @hibou57, you should be aware, that when using the developer channel of the browser, quite a lot of bugs are pretty expected to occur here, if you want a bit more stable experience, you can try to use Opera beta, or even Opera stable, and additionally keeping an eye, what's going on in the developer channel, just to be up to date with the upcoming features.

    Regarding the H264 issue, you can find a solution here.

    In regard to the problem with the Flash plug-in, which you have mentioned here, you can try one of the following steps:

    I. If you have already installed the adobe-flashplugin package, you can try to reinstall it as follows: sudo apt-get --reinstall install adobe-flashplugin,

    II. Go to Ubuntu wiki page, click on "install the Flash plugin", and follow the instructions. If after you click on the link it does nothing, just follow the steps mentioned below on the page,

    III. Go to Adobe Flash for other versions, select your Linux's architecture (64-bit/32-bit), and select "FP for Ubuntu" in step 2, click on "Download now", and follow the instructions.

    In case, that you want to install it manually: go to Adobe Flash for other versions, select your Linux's architecture, and select "FP for Linux (.tar.gz) PPAPI" in step 2, download it, and copy libpepflashplayer.so, and manifest.json from the archive to /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin.

  • Great addition of a narrow sidebar on mac, but why do the window controls have to change position for it? I would much prefer them to stay horizontal like every in every other application. The narrow sidebar could look the way it does on the speed dial when disabled.

  • Youtube video not working in last two releases of 45, it plays about 10 seconds, then load circle appears and opera gets stucked. Same if in that 10 second is video skipped to another position. Only process kill helps here, but problems stay. It's really interesting, that Edge have same problem, maybe it is something with windows 10 insider release. But in IE it works fine.

    No problems here. But "Stable" windows 10.

    😕 Opera dev + Windows 10 Insider? Don't expect anything good... :whistle:

    In the other hand maybe it's time for a new profile? :rolleyes:

  • @l33t4opera, you're a wizard, your tips works for videos, just not for Flash, but I don't mind. As now YouTube, DailyMotion and Facebook videos works, that's enough to me (before, only YT was working).

    Thanks for the hint. After getting back to Firefox for some times, I could notice it's slower than Opera, to the point Facebook Messenger is clearly more usable on Opera than on Firefox.
