Red background in the taskbar

  • Hi,

    I have noticed, that sometimes the background of the Opera instance in the taskbar (using Win 😎 gets red instead of the background color as have other programs. When I open another window of Opera, it has normal color, but the previous window remains red. I think it happens when I finish downloading a file.

    I use Opera 21.0.1432.67 and Windows 8.

    Do you have the same problem?

  • It happens when there is a failed download on the list of downloads (Ctrl+J). If you remove it, the app bar button will lose the red/yellow glow.

  • If you watch closely, you'll notice that during a successful download the taskbar button gradually fills with green from left to right - making the button effectively a progress bar. If it fills completely then returns to normal color, the download finished successfully.
