Opera tab-cycling issues

  • I really love the idea of the workspaces, however at the moment there is a severe problem stopping me from using them because of problems with tab-cycling:

    • When I use the standard (new) method of cycling through tabs, with the new horizontal/visual tab-cycler I have to click the tab I want to switch to with the mouse to confirm... which kinda makes the tab-cycler redundant I'd say ๐Ÿคจ

    • If I instead use the "Switch right/left through tabs" options (standard shortcuts are Ctrl+PageUp/Ctrl+PageDown) it's not possible to do more than one "round" of cycling. I think it might stop at a a point where tabs that have been moved to another workspace have been previously, or maybe it follows another logic. But at a certain point it's e.g. not possible to reach the next tab via cycling forward, instead I'd have to cycle all the way "around" backwards until I reach that tab, and then on that point I'm not able to cycle backwards any further, but would have to go around the opposite way again to reach the neighbouring tab. Hope that description is somewhat understandable ๐Ÿ˜…

    Hope the problems get resolved soon, so this feature, or rather these features (workspaces and visual tab-cycler) are properly usable ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just hold down ctrl and hit tab till I get to the one I want and then release and it picks the tab I want. No mouse needed.

    Confirmed.

  • @burnout426 Yes, you're right. That seems to be working after I restarted Opera again ๐Ÿ™‚ Not quite sure why it didn't before though since I had already restarted it after the issue arose for me ๐Ÿคทโ™‚

    Confirmed.

    This should be fixed in Opera Developer 68.0.3616.0. See "DNA-84713 Switching through tabs broken when using workspaces" in the changelog.

  • I also had a lot of problems with accidentally selecting with mouse. As the mouse is usually in the middle of the screen, 50% percent of the time, it wrongly selected the tab. As I was having that issue with the tabs sections (ctrl+m) time to time. Now it is just too often. I think it shouldn't be selectable with mouse as we can cycle using our mouse from ctrl+m.
