How to return the system window frame?

  • In the previous version for Linux Ubuntu 1604, opera-stable_54.0.2952.46_amd64.deb, there was a system window frame, window controls (close-expand-collapse) were on the left, but not everything worked correctly. Video on some portals and etc.
    Updated to opera version-stable_56.0.3051.99_amd64.deb, those bugs that were on the former, with the same video, fixed. However, this system frame is missing. Tabs shrunk. In General on me-so not very.
    Solved the same situation in Yandex.browser, through the inclusion of browser: / / flags, item - System windows controls
    In the Opera, apparently something else is responsible for the system representation. Can't find. Can who knows?

  • As of opera 55, opera uses csd (client side decorations) which can not be disabled by any means. There is no command line switch or some parameter in opera://flags that would do the job, so we are all waiting for the devs to do something...

    and if you are on gnome with compiz as a window manager, you can try what is mentioned here

    All the above apply to all branches of opera, ie stable, beta and developer versions.
