Mouse pointer does not click the same spot (Mouse shifting down) on opera for Mac

  • Does anybody know hoy to solve the problem of the pointer moving down from the position on the pages? You click somewhere and the position is not the same as the mouse pointer. It is very anoying and can only be fixed closing Opera and opening the same page again.

    I am using Opera for mac 55.0.2994.44

  • @jfercalderon I'm having the same problem. Here's the detail in my situation: It only occurs when Opera is Fullscreen mode (well who doesn't use Opera in Fullscreen mode?), whenever I move the mouse pointer to the top of the screen, the top bar iOs menu appears (the bar is hidden in Fullscreen mode on my Mac), and when the bar goes back hidden, Opera's current window is shifted up, anyone with this problem can notice the little white bar at the bottom of Opera's current window, hence the mouse shifted down.
    My only solutions atm: Try switching between tabs, it worked before, I'm not sure about the latest version of Opera.
    or simply close and reopen the current tab which has the problem, no need to quit Opera.

    *note: the shifted mouse distance can expand by the number of times you move the pointer top the screen, which makes the shifted distance bigger.

  • I've been having this problem for the last 4 - 5 months and it's been driving me absolutely nuts to the point where i have to use another browser from time to time when Opera pisses me off.. I'm sure a lot of people have this issue but I haven't seen a solution or update on this.

  • I have the exact same problem and it's driving me nuts. Keeps the same on all kinds websites. It doesn't mean whether the toolbar is on the left or at the top. Opera team, please do something about it as it's killing my productivity at work.

  • The only solution I have found so far is to close and reopen Opera. Not that elegant. And Yes, it is when Opera is un fullscreen.

  • Might be a problem with the mouse, try changing t for a new one.

  • @tecmobs No, it's the same with trackpad 😉
