Language/keyboard layout problem

  • Win7 x64, Opera 50.0

    When I cycle through keyboard layouts for different languages, the layout change takes effect normally, but the icon in the task bar is NOT changing. It 'locks' to display whatever language was on when I launched Opera. This only happens when the active window is Opera. Even switching between windows won't update the language indicator.

    So I have no idea what alphabet I'm about to type in until I start typing. As a person using 3 different languages on a daily basis. Opera has always been good to me (very convenient spell checking feature), but this new issue is VERY annoying.

    I've tried using a 3rd party layout switcher Keyla, but Opera affects it's language indicator icon exactly the same way it affects the standard Win7 one.

    The same for me!
