Speed Dial animated background not displaying Opera 53

  • Basically any animated background I choose is disappearing after the update.

    1. Open speed dial
    2. Set animated background
    3. You can see background changing on open speed dial
    4. Open new speed dial - ok
    5. Open new speed dial - gone
    6. Open new speed dial - gone
    7. Open new speed dial - gone

    It looks like it's hidden using CSS:
    <div class="wallpaper animated" style="display: none;">
    when I remove display: none; it works fine

    Static background works ok.

  • @buszmen So the animated wallpaper doesn't work or it isn't even displayed?

  • @leocg Like I said, CSS is blocking it from displaying. Now I have just a white background

  • Video
    Notice that only on settings page background is always shown. On speed dial and other opera:// pages it goes blank after first time new Speed dial is open.

  • Same here. I have been using same wallpaper for year now. It started to turn white since new patch.

  • I just also noticed that Opera uses [Web UI Pages] backgrounds only on opera://settings page, but tutorials [1][2] says it must show on any internal page:

    The [Web UI Pages] section lists the things needed for the other web UI pages. For example, the downloads, settings, and extension management pages.

    Video (Red - [Start Page], Green - [Web UI Pages])

    1. Setup theme with two backgrounds
    2. Background on already opened settings page changes to Start Page background (Red)
    3. Open new speed dial / go to speed dial in current tab
    4. Speed dial background is Start page background (as planned) (Red)
    5. Go to extensions/downloads/history/news
    6. Background is Start page background (Red), not Web UI Page background (Green)
  • Is this going to be fixed, or confirmed at least? I don't know if I should give up on animated wallpapers or wait for a fix. Currently I am UNABLE to set animated wallpaper to work.

  • It is fixed in Developer, not sure about Beta.

  • 53.0.2907.99
    Still not working
