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

  • 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.

  • Hi @domovnik, you can still turn it off by disabling opera:flags#sidebar-extensions-in-browser-sidebar, and restarting the browser. Also it affects only extensions made for the sidebar, the rest of them are still working the same way as before, and displayed in e.g. toolbar or address bar.

  • @l33t4opera @burnout426 Bingo and there the normal Ctrl+Shift+S works for extension sidepanel again 🙂

  • Hi @teknomobil, @vfbfan, @andrew84, @firuz-u7, @ohmanger, @james438, regarding the issues with the new video pop-out, you can still use the old pop-out implemented by the Opera. All you have to do, is to disable the two flags mentioned here by @kened, then restart the browser. Important is to disable both flags to avoid the issue with freezing/pausing videos in the pop-out.

  • @l33t4opera hi
    I've installed the old version, I'm using Linux, I won't update Opera anymore.

    This is a great nonsense, they are removing beautiful features.

  • @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?
