New (lack of) Opera menu bar is UNUSABLE

There is a way to restore the title bar in Kubuntu so probably the same method applies to vanilla Ubuntu.
Try setting a Window Rule for Opera windows. In KDE we do this under System Settings > Window Rules and set 'No title bar and frame' to 'Force' and 'No'. That's how I got mine back.
There is a quick guide to restoring Opera the menu bar here.

@vr51 Thank you for the suggestion! The article you linked is nice, but I haven't found a way to do this in vanilla ubuntu yet. I installed compiz, which seemed to offer many of the custom settings available in KDE, but it doesn't have the options described in the article for forcing a title bar/frame.

1. Regarding the lack of the Opera's menu, you can try to run the Opera with the following switch:
2. On bringing back the GTK window decorations, you can try the following steps: open a new shell window, and run:
/usr/bin/gtk-window-decorator --replace &>/dev/null &. If it still dosn't show up, click the Restore/Maximize button, and see if this helps.

This bit implies that compiz-gnome is installed and used as window manager for gnome, thus it is useless for the ones not using gnome or compiz at the very least.

@l33t4opera thanks for the suggestions! Suggestion 1 started showing an opera logo in the upper left of the window, but still no title bar. Suggestion 2 didn't work as @jimunderscorep mentioned, because I'm using 16.04 with Unity. Will it definitely work in GNOME? Maybe it's time to upgrade to 18.04.

Hi @ricitron, you're welcome, the above tips are only workarounds for the issues, they may work or not under various circumstances. Do you have installed the
compiz-gnomepackage? If not, then install it, run the command mentioned above again, and check if this helps.

I also don't understand why the title bar buttons have moved to the right to match the Windows style rather than unix

This must by far be the most useless change ever!!
I makes my tabs go "micro" sized because i use the whole tab bar when surfing. Not a nice surprise.
And i have found no way to change it sitting on Ubuntu 18 and Opera 55.
And the fact that the HTML% needs to be redone every time there is an upgrade to the browser. As of this update i cant even play games on FB .
I need ti switch browser if this doesn't go away in a hurry.
