Hovering over links doesn't show link address (Opera browser dev. v.60.0.3248.0)

  • Opera browser dev. v.60.0.3248.0 and earlier
    Link address are not shown hovering links in pages.
    It seems that the latest updates have not improved the situation.
    To restore the display I have to:

    • Go to opera: // flags /
    • Find "GPU rasterization"
    • Select "Disabled" (because it is enabled)
    • restart Browser
    • Select again "Enabled"

    Link address are shown ... for a while (it does not seem very stable)

    Bye 🙂

  • I have noticed similar thing - hover doesn't always show links (for a month or so). I have not tried to disable GPU rasterization (yet), but looks like this behavior is somehow related to background page loading and/or some specific set of pages.
    Initially links are displayed, then for some time (until all or some pages are clicked or loaded?) links are often not displayed - and usually after few hours of Opera use link popups again appear correctly.
