Opera 66 initial release makes it easier to reopen closed tabs and to access extensions

  • @teknomobil I see, but the old feature is still there, not removed, so you can simply use it in the latest version. You can download the DEB or RPM package of the new version, extract it to some not default directory, and use it in parallel with the old one, not to mention, that it's based on a new, more secure version of Chromium ;-)

  • Up til recently I have used always used Iinternet Explorer as my preferred browser but some sites don't like it now. So Opera has become my default one but the one that really bugs me is that clicking the middle wheel of my Intellimouse Optical mouse will open up anew tab in the bar at the top of the Opera page but will not move directly into the new page without actually moving the cursor to the page. What am I missing if anything please?

  • @kamil7165: Here here! The new sidebar behaviour is too clunky. You cannot reorder icons. Too much space wasted. It steals space from the tabs bar and it is not even resizeable as neededl. (It can be resized, but only up to a point - which is insufficient for me).
    Please, opera staff, fix this new bar or use the "Extensions bar" code, instead of the browser bar, for this unified functionality.
    It would be more functional and less space-hungry, while still allowing for the unified functionality you're seeking.
    I can wait on an older version, but not forever.

    p.s. Dear opera makers, please remember that there is still people with monitors less than FHD, and also that there is people whom do not like to browse full-screen.
    Would you cater to those audiences, please?

  • @axelet It probably will be, at some point.

  • @hugh-allen Nothing, this is how Chromium works.

  • @burnout426

    I have the same issue, I used ctrl + shift + s to open V7 bookmarks.
    Now the browser crashes, or does nothing, when I press the keyboard combination, on both Windows 10 / Xubuntu 18.04. 😞

  • @leocg: Ah, I see - was wondering it's a way for you guys to bypass this, and force something to looks cool without Facebook official mode. Thank u for respond l33t4opera and leocg!

  • @elspivo
    I asked a serious question and I get stupid and unhelpful remark. If that your best effort just go away and leave the actual issue I raised to true experts.

  • Password syncing option turn on by itself while synchronization starting 😡

  • @hugh-allen: Say what?

  • Return the search engine choice at the bottom of expanded address bar.

  • This release is awful. The video pop-up doesn't work on most sites anymore for me and I'm experiencing crashes all the time now.

  • looks good. whens it available in the ubuntu software centre?

  • On previous release 65.0.3467.78 I posted the following comment:
    """I tried today to open this URL:
    https://www.costacrociere.it/login.html
    and I was answered with a blank page (after a very momentary shadow of login page).
    It works well on Chrome 79.0.3945.88 and any other browser I have on my notebook under Win 7 Pro. (MS Internet Explorer, Firefox, Maxthon), and it worked well also with previous Opera releases."""

    I see that the problem remains still unfixed in the present release.
    Couldn't you gently pay your attention to this issue?

  • I updated yesterday and sorry, Opera has lost its most important comfort features with the switch to chromiums code base for the sidebar and video pop-out. I do not understand why google consistently makes features less comfortable AND removes the possibility to configure it - why does the user cannot decide how he want to use the software

    The new sidebar removed the most important comfort features:

    1. Is sits in TOP of the tabs and hides the content from tabs, unable to read it. It is a popup window and no sidebar anymore.

    2. I don't know when exactly this happens but it happens frequently, that the sidebar content (bookmarks) don't remember its scrolling position and is all the way up to the top. Very annoying when you go through your bookmarks, checking for news and instead of the old real sidebar, you now each time have to

    • click to open (it overlays the tab, so you cannot read your page)
    • click to close
    • click to open again to select the next one, again unable to read the content of the website and so on.
    • frequently, the bookmarks scrolled to the top, so you have to scroll down again and find your next entry

    With the old real sidebar, you had it open to the side and it stayed this way, beSIDE the content of the website and you simply

    • click open a bookmark (and being able to read it)
    • click the next one

    and the bookmarks stayed at the position where you left them, no matter what you did.

    1. Video pop-out does not remember its size and position, each time it opens at the bottom right corner in a too small default size. So each time I have to reposition and resize it

    2. Volume control is gone in video pop-out., again making Opera less comfortable to use.

    These are my most used features, the video-popout not remembering its position and size prevented me to switch to Vivaldi but now with the most TWO comfort features gone I can switch to Vivaldi - it has the same annoying video popout but it has a real sidebar.

  • Why new video pop out disable a video in tab and show it only in pop out small window?! It's not comfortable in multi display/workspaces mode, please return back this possibility!

  • @elspivo Just say nothing at all if you have nothing worth saying. OK? Chat and junk has it's place but not on this forum. Tray Facebook, Instagram or whatever instead please.

  • Unfortunately, the most annoying “feature” of all is that you "don’t seem to care" about user preferences. Keep adding things without any option for disabling them.

    • The bookmarks side panel is useless to me since I prefer using the bookmarks bar.
    • As for history, having to scroll so many times it’s much more worse. The history page (thank god) has the option to choose directly (Today-Yesterday-Older) avoiding all that scrolling. Can you at least put something similar in the side panel? Otherwise it’s useless too.

    I’ve also noticed that the page up-down buttons don’t work on history side panel like on bookmarks. Can anyone confirm?

  • One last thing. History side panel has the option to open history page by clicking on the clock icon, while on bookmarks panel does nothing.
