Any solution yet? Still having the same problem and it's super annoying.

Perhaps a solution here, because Opera is using the Blink engine from Google's Chrome browser.
Chrome Browser: Turn hardware acceleration OFF?
"Chrome launches with the white screen?"
https://windowsreport.com/chrome-white-screen/#:~:text=Some users have confirmed that,in the snapshot directly below.
Disabling hardware acceleration may have consequences worse than the white flashing,

Well, I really love the project and the concept, but this whole white flashbang I get every single time I open a tab or website is too much... How is it that the devs do not browse the forums? Does PewDiePie need to say something for them to listen...?

@gchavez i have completely given up on this problems and devs in general. If it's really a chromium issue, how is it that other browsers don't have this problem?
I switched to edge months ago, and let me tell you it's far better. No annoying major bugs, instant response to complaints. This issue has been open for so long, no response from devs yet and no fixes. What else is there to do?

I have the very same problem, Opera 77.0.4054.146 on Linux Mint Cinnamon 20.1. Dark Reader extension.
In my case, the problem is easy to reproduce: just type
about:blankand Bam, white flash. The same thing happens with
about:gpu, but that's another story.
Please notice that
about:blankis pretty common in web browsing, some websites trigger them in anchors with
window.open). The second method seems not to be affected with the bug.
I can reproduce the issue with a simple html file containing something like:
<a href="https://google.com" target="_blank">Open site in another tab (target attr)</a><br>
Hope this helps anyone!

I just filled a bug report with this info, hopefully it will be helpful to opera devs... I will share any update on the subject. Hope it's fixed soon!

@st4zik I propose the flashbang feature be expanded so each occurrence is random sequence of 0-3 flashbangs with random millisecond durations. This will better satisfy the uptight policy-driven 9-5 devs' conforming around cubicles and whiteboards saturated in bright white overhead light by properly punishing anyone using a pc in a darkened room. Subversive witchcraft must not be tolerated. Moreover, why squander such a perfect opportunity? While I am blind conscious only of white noise send over some agents to knock me aside and deprive me of ill-deserved privacy and ill-begotten property.
