Opera 55. Getting rid of that ugly CSD

  • Hi @jamesisin, try to run the Opera with the switch --show-opera-menu, and see if this helps in your case.

  • 0_1534877059289_Selection_623.png When ever a secondary window opens I have no way of closing it unless I hit Alt F3 and select "No borders"

  • @pugamapish
    Excluding the csd, you also seem to be missing the o-menu, the tab bar, evan the back/forward/etc buttons!

  • Looks like one of those pop-up windows minus the title bar and borders. Right-click on a link and choose Open in New Window to get a regular window, then close the pop-up.

  • For those using KDE, u can go to System Settings -> Window management -> Window Rules. And add there a rule for the whole class ("Opera Opera") with the "No title bar and frame" set to "Force" and "No". But this still looks ugly and doesn't solve the problem with forcing csd and not providing an option to disable/enable it.

  • @cirio Yeah, mine has no O menu.

  • Opera 55 was updated to 55.0.2994.44 a few minutes ago and the csd problem is still there. So far, it seems the devs are ignoring our requests... 😞

  • Opera is worse and worse every day. It doesn't make sense to use it anymore.

  • I am using Kubuntu 16.04, after Opera update to the 55.x, I cannot normally use developer tools anymore. I am working with two monitors and I am always detaching developer tools so developer tools could be on one screen and webpage on another.

    After detaching developer tools (to be in a seperate window) everything is fine, but when you are trying to move seperated window somewhere it loses title bar (see attached image). It's super annoying and it's hard to work with a bug like this.

    P.S. After update to the 55.0.2994.44 the bug is still there. 😞

  • @pugamapish I have an extension that opens a secondary window and I've found I can close it by hitting "Escape" twice.

  • New Opera user here. I think I've only had two updates to Opera so far, but I too despise the hideous new titlebar. If the devs want to include this as an option that's fine, but give us a setting so that we can choose between using native titlebars/windows and the new ugly.

  • I will leave Opera, and go back to Firefox waiting for the bug to be fixed.

  • @anotheroperafan You're right, it doesn't look good, but it does look better and I have some window functionality now. I can "roll-up" (shade) my Opera windows and use the "keep above" feature. I did set up a custom titlebar to match the colors of Opera's dark theme so it doesn't look quite as bad.

  • client side window decoration has some problems in KDE Plasma
    desktop environment:
    window is borderless
    window can not be resized by dragging its borders

    Therefore, give us an option to enable server side window decoration on linux please.

  • @minho Yes

  • Por favor voltem com a "Barra de Título" eu utilizo o Linux Mint com KDE, e o Opera descaracterizou completamente o sistema, ficou péssimo não ter a a janela, e mesmo configurando no sistema para voltar com as janelas, ela fica toda bugada.

    Corrija essa atualização,


  • This forum is in English.Also, don't shout.

  • Spamming my thread just to mention that opera 56 just reached stable and that csd is still there (and no way to disable it yet). Pity 😞

    On the upside though, for me at least, they put a toggle in the settings for "Scroll to the top of the page by clicking the active tab"! God knows how many times I accidentally clicked a tab and opera scrolled to it's top all these months since the feature became available.

  • I agree with cirio above - I'll downgrade back to 54.0.2952.71 until these dev decide to give us our options back. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's someone else deciding what I have to settle for. I really like Opera... but, I'm not married to it. If we can't get rid of that ungodly ugly win10 look, I'm thru with Opera.

  • I too am downgrading to 54 until one of two things happen. Opera wises up and allows us to choose the window manger theme (ie give us the option to have Opera look like all other windows, especially in Linux + KDE) or I make the time to migrate all my bookmarks to Firefox.

    I have used Opera for the past decade and I really love it, but Opera is now utterly hideous on Linux. Thank the heavens macOS forces Opera to obey its theming or I would migrating my bookmarks instead of posting this message.
