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

  • @teknomobil: I also dislike the new PIP (I hate it TBH)

  • @elspivo Facebook would need to add it.

  • @burnout426 said in Opera 66 initial release makes it easier to reopen closed tabs and to access extensions:

    @vegelund Goto the URL opera://about and take note of the "profile" path. Close Opera and open the "Preferences" file with JSONedit. Delete the "Keybindings" object. Then, under "extensions", delete the "commands" object and save your changes. Start Opera to see if the crashes go away. If so, reconfigure your shortcuts and see if they work without crashing.

    Thanks! I appreciate the advice, but that’s too advanced for me. I expect a new version of a browser to work without starting to modify things.

    Looks like no one else has problems with user-defined keyboard shortcuts to open sidebar extensions like V7 Notes.

    Guess I’ll skip keyboard shortcuts and use Ctrl+s to open the sidebar and then click my chosen extension. It’s only one click extra.

    Knowing Opera, the next version or four down the road – everything magically works again.

  • @domovnik: Fully agree with you.

  • Ok, so it looks like I've gotten this update a couple of days late without paying attention but the video pop-out doesn't work on Twitch.tv anymore. Also, is it possible to change the highlighted address bar back to blue instead of the new purple?

  • @max1c: So it looks like my other machine updated to 66.0.3515.27 as opposed to 66.0.3615.31 and it doesn't have either of these issues. Does anyone know a simple way to fix this?

  • @james438: Have the same issue have no idea how to fix.

  • did they change how big u can extend the pip video ?

  • Extension panel is gone. Now it is harder to use extensions in the sidebar because they are displayed only after an additional click on extension icon.

  • Disappointing updates!
    😉 Picture in picture option sucks now (before it was working excellent - the thing I was using Opera in the first place)
    😉 Extension: Tree Tabs is weird (it can't be resized)

  • @ratamon: if you're on Windows or Linux you can re-enable it through #sidebar-extensions-in-browser-sidebar.

  • This post is deleted!
  • @icepenguins101: Thanks)

  • Return the previous design of the pop-up video, they always do a bad job with this function, it was already perfect and now they ruin it again.
    Thanks .

  • @leocg can you tell me why did you blatantly lied to me in blog post (which is locked now) about the inability to revert to old behaviour of pop-up video by using settings?

    Guys, can someone tell me how surefire way to lock Opera updates? I did it in a past but after few releases in stopped working to me and Opera updated itself anyway.

  • @kamil7165 There is no option in Opera settings to revert to the old video po-out.
    Flags are not part of settings, they are temporary switches for developers (and those who want to test) to enable/disable features that are still in development and on every update there is a 50% chance that a flag will be removed or that a new one will be added.

  • @kamil7165 About blocking updates, there is the FAQ

  • @kamil7165: I don't mind if the settings are named "User Settings", "Settings" or simply "Flags". Additionally there is also high probability that some non-developer settings will be removed in next releases, so that's meaningless.

  • @kened: Thanks! I really don't get why the browser should stop displaying video in a tab by default while playing in detached mode. It's seems like a step back. Hope the "Use surface layers in Video Pop-out" flag won't be removed.
