Opera 21 is out now

  • Opera 21 is out now, the only difference Ive seen so far is you can show the full URL in the address bar, it uses Aura Technology and is updated to Chromiun 34. maybe theres other new things that I've missed

  • Updated the stable release to Opera 21 this morning, now having the same issue I was having in "Next" and "Developer" as of yesterday.When I go to Justin.tv and pop-out the video window, the volume slider cannot be adjusted. Worked fine in Opera 20. Since I need to pop out the video window so I can have the video on one side of my screen, and mIRC on the other side, I now can't use Opera at all for that purpose, having to use Firefox.

    Yes, but that only lists up to the previous release, dated 2014-04-24 (or the proper way 24-04-2014).

    Which I guess is why people are uncertain of what has changed.

  • I go to settings/advanced and must me having a blank, but can't find the setting for showing the full URL. Can anyone point out where it is there.

    If you have Power User enabled it will be in settings, it's also in Opera:Flags, another tip, once you enable Power User, checkmark in settings -----> Aways Show Power User Settings

  • I have enabled "show advanced settings," and "Always show power user settings" and still don't see it there. I went through Opera:flags -- the list goes on forever -- :) but didn't see it either. I guess I'll have to live with no full URL.

  • Hi guys, interesting post, from the security point of view: "Security changes in Opera 21".

    @lem729: the "full URL" feature, is already enabled by default in the flags (opera://flags/#show-full-url), but to enable it, you need to go to the Settings>Browser>User Interface, and tick the checkbox, on the left of the "Show full URL in combined search and address bar" option.

  • It's not in the flags, it's in the regular settings page. Have you tried using the page's search field to find it?

  • Thanks, I just did a search for URL.

    I already had a check in: " Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar." I assume that's the place for the check.

    Now in most places, the full url is there in the address bar when I go to a location.. So I think it's working generally okay. Strangely though, in a few places, the full url did now show in the address bar. Examples of a few where it doesn't show in the addreess bar (though when I paste it for you here, it shows.

    "The http://" isn't there in the address bar for these. Anyway it seems a bit odd that it mostly works, but not for all adddresses.

    That's not it. :s
    Are you sure you have "Show advanced settings" enabled?

    Those URL's show for me in full

  • Okay, Opera:flags. It's not in mine, coloderwinters. Strange. I do see it in yours. Thanks for the photo. I went through one by own, and I even did a search for "full" and for "url" and for "full url in combined search and address bar." Nothing showed up.

  • @rafaelluik

    I have a check in "Show advanced settings." I can live with this issue -- not always getting a full url (I do get it with a paste into a notepad, so not a big deal). It's just odd that I'm not getting the option to show the full URL in Settings or in Opera:Flags. Haaa, problem solved

    I clicked update, and I thought I did, but maybe I need to close and open the browser again. I shall try. I looked at my version of Opera and it's still listing 20. Uggghh :))))


    Yep, I had clicked update, and thought it did it. But I had to shut down the browser, and the minute I opened it, I checked my version and it was 21. I went to settings, found the item, went to one of the sites that wasn't working before, and now it is -- the full URL shows in the address bar.

    Thanks everyone for your ideas. Sorry to have bothered you.

  • Right On Lem, Welcome to Version 21 :)

  • I'm going to wait for the next minor dot release. Looking at past history, there should be a quick bugfix release in a week or so.

  • Opera 21 Problems--

    I had to uninstall Opera 21 immediately because the shortcuts on Speed Dial or web pages wouldn't load. It kept spinning like it was loading but never did. I reinstalled an older version & deleted the Opera 21 folder.

    Could this have something to do with my addons? I have Pinterest, Adblock & Web of Trust installed.

    I have WIN 7, 64 bit. Thx--CJ.

  • Did going back to an older version correct the problem ?.

    Does disabling all of your add-ons correct the problem ?.

  • @stlcorie2

    I have Win 7, 64 bits and had no problem with the update. I also have Adblock plus. Can I assume what when you went back to Opera 20, everything was okay there. If so, you might want to disable your extensions, and try the update again, to see if, per the question of @linuxmint7, disabling the updates corrected the problem. If it did, then we can guess that the problem came from one of the extensions. If not, then you would need to go back to Opera 20 again.

    Assuming once again in Opera 20 you don't want an automatic update, you may well want to rename the automatic update file. Here's a thread that discusses how to do that. https://forums.opera.com/post/37931
