Why it's a bug of xfce? Opera developers make product to work on different distributives of Linux. Xfce is not rear desktop environment. To my mind the developers must test their product. As I have sad already, on another notebook with xfce there is one button to close Opera. Xfce is the same. Graphics driver is another. Maybe it depends on it. Or may be it is some incompatibility.
I like this browser, but I can say that Opera for Windows has a lot of bugs too. That's why I have toblame Opera developers.

Ok, let me be more precise. It is a bug of opera which appears ONLY when it is run under xfce . And thats is because, according to all reports so far, it happens on all users who use xfce, regardless of the distro they use or any other setting, eg. compositing, driver in use, architecture etc, and not on everyone else.
Some months ago, there was a similar issue on 45 for users who did not have compositing enabled (or installed at all) which made opera's menus look like crap. We mentioned in the forums, we exchanged opinions, we realised that the lack of compositing is the reason and opera devs fixed it... with a bad workaround imho.
I would install xfce alongside openbox on my pc and post screenshots to prove my point, but I dont feel like doing so. Plus I can not do it on a virtual machine, because I do not have one handy.
You can install another desktop enviroment on your distro, log in it and check for yourself. It does not have to be a full blown... bloat like kde or gnome, neither some hardcore stuff like plain openbox, just something simple like mate or lxde.
Or, you could open a new thread (or use one of the 2-3 ones that already mention the problem), asking for feedback from xfce users and each one will post his stuff with screenshots and info, like distro, gpu driver in use, compositing on or off, etc and narrow things down to what it may be causing it.

It is Opera bug. I wrote in other thread, I have two virtual machines with Fedora + Xfce. First VM is not updating Fedora 22, installed maybe 3 years ago and second is always uptodate Fedora. Opera on first virtual machine HAD all buttons. And every new version of Opera removed some buttons. Xfce was not changing, only Opera was changing. So the missing buttons is matter of Opera and not desktop manager. And we know how often is Xfce updated...

But they still use xfce, new or old. And yes I do know how slow xfce releases are.
Since you do have some virtual machines available and running, try installing a different desktop enviroment on one and check how opera runs there as well. If not, wait until I decide to install xfce on my debian installation and check myself.

@jimunderscorep I already have XFCE on my Mageia install. One thing to note, since the browser uses your desktop's secure storage, I can't access any of my saved passwords while in XFCE, since they are all stored in KDE. But on the current question ... if I Maximize Opera in XFCE, I have no "chrome" at all - but if I right-click on the taskbar icon (whatever XFCE calls their equivalent of a taskbar) then I get the regular window menu including "Unmaximize" which restores Opera to its usual window. Also, the standard keyboard shortcut Alt+spacebar displays the same menu.

If this is an xfce desktop: Settings -> Window Manager Tweaks > Accessibility, and uncheck the checkbox on the left of "Hide frame of windows when maximized".
This was from a previous post and worked for me.

Different themes in the ARCH version of XFCE have different button configurations and some that let you remove or rearrange buttons. There are four buttons on the right side of my title bar: rollup, minimize, maximize, and exit. One button on the left fo the title bar. Using the Fullscreen option does not get full screen out of opera. It just wipes out my two task bars, one on top and one on bottom of my screen and kills the title bar on opera. Toggling F11 puts opera in a true Fullscreen mode and another F11 puts everything back to normal. Opera is not doing what it is supposed to do in terms of handling button routines correctly. Happy bug hunting folks! The Fullscreen option on the title bar is not tied to the same code as the F11 key.

Wow, I came here looking for a solution to remove the close, minimize and maximize buttons, the whole lot.
Running Debian on Xfce here, and the three buttons in the updated version of Opera get in the way of all the tabs I have.
Would be really nice if there was a way to remove the buttons (an option in settings perhaps), there are users on Linux that never use them anyway.
