Regression (?) - Auto-completion on dark theme is unreadable, again

  • I have it too. Latest production Opera.

    This is pathetic. Just plain pathetic.

  • I just updated Opera to version 65.0.3467.7 and this issue persists... 😕

  • I have the same issue too ... on version 64.0.3417.61 ... on previous one didn't have this issue.

  • It has been fixed by 60.0.3255.79, but then one of the 64.0.3417.* builds re-introduced this unexpected behaviour.

  • This issue persists with version 65.0.3467.16. I noticed that if I focus an auto-completion field with a single click, all the entries are displayed correctly:

    alt text

    but as soon as I either:

    1. Click again on the same field (without typing anything)

    OR

    1. Start typing some text

    The control becomes unreadable:

    alt text

  • I also tried the following workarounds:

    1. Starting Opera in Incognito mode, i.e. with no enabled extensions
    2. Creating a new profile from scratch

    In both cases, the issue persists.

    I'm running on Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17134.1069] with Intel Graphics HD 520, driver version: 22.20.16.4815.

  • Intel drivers updated to version 26.20.100.7323, with no luck.

    Following attempts did not work:

    1. Starting Opera in Incognito mode, i.e. with no enabled extensions
    2. Creating/using a new Opera profile from scratch
    3. Updating video drivers to latest version

    So it's very likely that the issue is actually caused by Opera itself.

  • Issue persists with 65.0.3467.32, I tested it on several PCs with different Intel video cards. Not sure if that's the problem, it may be a regression of: DNA-77248 [Win10&Lin] Autofill is unreadable when system theme is dark (fixed in 60.0.3255.79 and re-introduced by 64.0.3417.* and later)

  • I reproduced this issue on 3 different systems running Windows 10 (dark theme):

    Windows 10 1803
    Windows 10 1903
    Windows 10 1909

  • It seems that Opera 66.0.3515.3 (or earlier?) finally solved this problem, but I can't find any references in https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/changelog-for-66/.
