:tools: Scheduled maintenance

Heads up! Downtime for the Forums, related to the NodeBB upgrade, is planned for Thursday, December 14, starting from 10:00 UTC.
Please make sure to finish all your posts before this time. The downtime should only last for a few minutes.

Red taskbar icon

  • New HP Pavillion 570 desktop, Win 10 home
    Using Opera 44.0.2510.1449. About 3 weeks since I changed machines and reinstalled opera. All was working fine until today when I noticed that the pinned taskbar icon turns bright red after downloading a file. The downloads are good. I have cleared the download button but I cannot restore the icon to normal without restarting Opera. There does not appear to be any difference in operation.

  • Red taskbar icon indicates a failed download. The background on the taskbar icon indicates download progress; if it changes to all red then there was an error and the download could not be completed.

    Mind you, sometimes I have had downloads complete successfully without Opera knowing they had, so it sits there waiting for more of the file even though there isn't any more.
