New 'Speed Dial' tab automatically opens up

  • Been using Opera on Windows 10 for few days, and love every feature of it.

    There is a very annoying feature (bug?) though that I can't quite understand.

    I am on Windows 10, using 2 Tasks Views (aka Virtual Desktops), one for work, the second one for web stuff. Every time I switch from my Work task view to the Web one (containing Opera), I find a new 'Speed Dial' tab added. Since I switch fairly frequently between the 2, I often find several unused Speed Dial tabs that I have to close, and I lose the focus on the tab I was previously on.

    The expected behavior would be to have Speed Dial in any newly opened tab. Under no circumstance do I want/need to have tabs automatically opened for me.

    I went through every setting and can't find a way to turn this off. I do not want to turn off Speed Dial, it's a great feature.

    Thanks for your help!

    There isn't such feature in Opera.

  • Doesn't happens here.
