[Solved]Since latest update Opera Dev Tools in separate window stay static

  • Like described in this thread for Opera Windows, I am seeing this very same issue since last Opera update on my Mac OS.

    When firing up my Dev tools I usually work in a separate window. When trying to move the Dev Tools window, window stays static and can no longer be moved anywhere. I am however able to resize it.

    Please fix this 😃 Or is this a new feature.. if so: I hate this 🥁

    Thanks for reading

    P.S.: running Opera for Mac v. 62.0.3331.18 on Mac OS Mojave v. 10.14.4

  • That is true. The position of the Devtools is fixed and unmovable. I could not see any preference setting to change it.

  • @Jyria
    Also in today's update Dev Tools window can no longer be moved, when undocked and displayed in separate window.

    Please fix it!

    My developer colleague installed latest opera version on his computer as well and is also seeing the issue.

    This ist so annoying as a web developer having to work with this every day...

  • Today's update Opera v. 62.0.3331.66 didn't fix the issue.

    Pretty please address this...

  • Workaround: expand the dev tools to a full screen and minimize it back to a window. This should allow you to move it.

  • @avisa you are a real life saver! I can confirm that that workaround works.
    You need to do it every time you open the dev tools though.

  • No change in the update 62.0.3331.101 this morning either. Very annoying.

  • This issue seems to be fixed with latest update Opera v. 62.0.3331.119

    Thanks Dev-Team!
