Cmd+W closes the window instead of the tab.

56.0.3051.104 on 10.13.6/High Sierra and it's still happening.
I've been back on Opera for about a month after many years absence, and this one bug is becoming a bit of a show stopper to an otherwise excellent piece of software.
As others have said, Cmd + Shift + T to reopen tabs, or once opened, close Opera completely/properly (Cmd + Q), then reopen and that seems to hold it off for a while.

It's a very annoying bug, and I'll switch to other program if not fixed soon

Still happening. Also I noticed when typing something into address bar and hitting ctrl+enter doesn't complete the domain name but adds a new line to the address bar like a text editor! Opening a separate thread for this issue now.

Still happening too. It has been less frequent in the past weeks but the 4-in-a-row from the last minutes really got my thinking changing my browser. Fixes help but never completely solve the problem...

The bug is still here. Very annoying. No other software on my machine demonstrates this issue so I assume it's an Opera bug.

I'm having headaches with this issue. I didn't customised any shortcut in Opera and from time to time when I use the Command + W shortcut to close a tab the complete Opera Window is closed. Without any error message.
Other Opera windows are still open so I'm sure I'm not accidentally hitting Command + Q.
Any clue how to fix this?

For now, there is a temporary work aroun: After you've hit Command + W (and the window closes instead of the tab) do the following: Command + N (to open a new window) followed by Command + Shift + T (to re-open the last tab). This will actually open the last window you've closed including all tabs (granted it wasn't an incognito window).

Yes I tried that too. Hasn't happened once since I reinstalled Opera yesterday...

For me the best workaround for this issue is:
- Open again opera
- Chooce "History" option from the top
- Choose option: reopen last closed window

@hub It won't be fixed as cmd+w is a macOS system wide keyboard shortcut to close windows. Looking into it, it seems dumb that Opera would include this as a shortcut to close current tabs, when it is a system wide mac command.. All I can think of is that macOS is over riding it and that Opera should introduce a new shortcut to overcome this. See list of mac shortcuts here: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201236

Presumably this is now being fixed in the Developer version 59 (under DNA-73684). I've asked if this could at least be backported to the upcoming Stable 58...
It has been backported to O58 stable, let us know if you still see anything like this problem!

Still same problem wit O58, Very annoying. I'm seriously considering switching back to another browser, even if I liked Opera a lot,

To fix the issue you need to close the start tab (Speed dial). After that it works normally
Also, it makes sense to enable window closing confirmation.
Hopefully that helps.
