[Solved]Search bar autocompletion works but entry can't be selected on touchscreen

  • Hi,
    I have a windows tablet. After a recent update, I'm having a problem selecting entries from the search bar. Auto-completion works fine, but when I touch the screen with my finger to select the desired entry, nothing happens. If instead I use a mouse to select the entry, it works normally. I'm not sure when this bug was introduced -- I rolled back to version 63 and this problem does not appear, so it was introduced later.
    Anyone noticed this issue ?

  • In newest Opera Stable (65 at the moment), goto the URL opera://flags/#reborn-3-dropdown, disable the flag and try things out. If that works for you, that might be a workaround for now. But, the flag may disappear eventually, so don't count on the workaround forever.

    Are you talking about searching in the address field or the separate search field you can turn on or the search field on the start page?

    Disabling the flag as you specified works, thank you!
    I was indeed talking about searching in the address field -- hope this feature for touchscreens will work again by default if the flag disappears.
