    Thanks, reported

  • Before the update to version 47 I was able to disable the " Disable autoplay in background tabs" ( :faint: ) option.
    Now if I middle click on a video on YouTube it won't start automatically in the background - I have to click on the tab so that the video will start. Something that I do not like at all! Can't get it to work like I want from the flags menu.

  • Hi @bobeca, the #disable-gesture-requirement-for-media-playback was recently replaced with the #autoplay-policy, but this change might have broken the feature, so it has to be fixed on the Chromium's side - the source link.

  • Will this be fixed in the near future?

  • I just installed Opera developer 47 over a fresh copy of Win 10. I can't adjust many of the settings including: On startup, Cookies, Images, JavaScript, Flash, Pop-ups, Location, Notifications, WebRTC, Handlers, etc. I also can't seem to stay logged into my Opera account. I had to go to Vivaldi to log into the forum and post this message!

    Already mentioned in this tropic.

    No problems here.

    Yes. I can sign in just fine from the Forum front page, but then the browser "freezes" on the redirect page. I have to manually click on the redirect link, which does take me to the Forum but I am not logged-in anymore. Turns into a vicious cycle.

    The change log, and the announcement.

    Adding more convenience to your search pop-up

    The search pop up has been a principal feature for our browser since the release of Opera 39, creating convenience for users to search, and copy any text they highlighted. We later tacked on the currency converter to the pop up in Opera 42, easing online shopping.

    Now, converting distance, weight, volume, speed and temperature from the convoluted imperial system, to the standard metric system (or vice-versa) is as easy, as highlighting the value. Yet another reason to forgo your calculator, and math skills – Opera will do the work for you.

    Here are the units available for conversion (US measures) in the current developer build:

    lb ⇄ kg

    °F ⇄ °C

    oz ⇄ g

    mph ⇄ km/h

    mpg ⇄ l/100km

    gal ⇄ l

    qt ⇄ l

    fl ⇄ ml

    mi ⇄ km

    yd ⇄ m

    ft ⇄ m

    in ⇄ cm

    kW ⇄ hp

    lb ft ⇄ Nm

    You can turn the search pop-up on, or off in the Preferences, under the Browser -> User interface settings.
