    Why is this viewable on my desktop? I can not find any setting within Opera to disable this or addresses it in any way.
    Additionally, I cannot find anything via google referencing this issue.
    Does anyone have any info?
    I have the latest V. 64 or Opera - Screen Shot 2019-11-23 at 12 - edit.jpg

  • @pandanose No, I've never seen it, but if anyone's going to be able to replicate it, it would help to know which version of MacOS you're using—Catalina? which I don't have—and whether you have Opera minimised to the dock, or perhaps running in the background with no window open. More information, more chance of help.

    Opera is minimized, however the behavior isnt wanted regardless of Opera being open or not. It is really distracting. I hope someone can resolve.

    I appreciate that. However, I've tried turning on any preference I think might cause it but nothing I've tried makes it appear on my screen (2015 13" retina MacBook Pro, MacOS 10.14.6). I've not seen it on my 2011 17" MBP running 10.13.6, or on a 2015 5K iMac running Catalina, but I haven't gone through the preferences on those.

    I wish I could help more, but can just hope someone else who's encountered it can come along.
