[Solved]Mac: Quitting / Command-Q in Opera 64.0

  • New in v 64, you have to "double-hit" Cmd-Q or keep it pressed.
    This is absolutely annoying. I deeply hate this behaviour since Chrome introduced it.
    A simple Cmd-Q is a fundamental basic in Mac OS since Mac OS 7 in 1993. It's used system-wide and intuitive. Why break up with this? It's annoying – either you press it double (which makes no sense at all and you feel educated again and again) or you hold it which causes the keyboard repeat and after Opera every f__king running app closes also until the keyboard buffer is empty. (Doesn't do so in Chrome, so at least there was somebody with a brain at work).
    Please make this a setting option very soon or I will leave Opera.
    And yes: It makes sense to quit an app directly after using it beacause this closes hidden processes and active cache content.

  • You can change it right in the menu. Click 'Opera', then uncheck 'Warn before quitting (⌘Q)'.

  • Oh god, I am so dumb. Ouch.
