Opera 68 beta

  • Hello everyone, We’re happy to inform you that Opera 68 enters the beta stage today. You’ll find some UI improvements, such as font changes and inconsistencies fixed when opening internal pages from the Easy setup menu in a private window. In addition there are some Video pop-out enhancements.  Chromium is updated to version 81.0.4040.5. Known…

  • Changelog is pointing to 67 instead of 68.

  • If you look here, some users had already updated and now their Opera doesn't start at all. Post at https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/comments/fgjvi3/opera_beta_wont_launch_after_todays_update/ about it too.

  • Launch problem after update, both on Win10 and MacOS 10.14.6.

  • @burnout426: Thanks we are working on a fix already. Mentioned in known issues.

  • RIP Instant Search 😞

  • Mmm. No need to add many features while Opera always crash on my MacOS (Catalina 10.15.3).
    All users need is stable and securely browsers.
    But Opera always crash while I'm compose long text: Writing articles, blogs, post status on Facebook with long text... Oop crash! restart without any reasons.
    I'm very confused, now I'm changed to another browser, just use Opera because VPN 😞

  • No Opera Beta after update. Tried offline reinstall without uninstall - no success.

    Too bad I had so much tabs opened.
    Now tab organization is completely redefined.

  • "Not possible to log into sync in browser.
    Crash on startup after update for some users"

    I have this one in first stable version 67! Now I used latest stable Opera but new portable installation without sync and with few bookmarks/add-ons. My old daily Opera have "no answer" after ~1 minute after start and broken logging to sync.

  • @Keycan Try "launcher.exe --disable-autoupdate", it works for me here.

  • Win 10 1909 64bit unfortunately after the upgrade from beta 67 to 68 the browser died and won't open at all. The first and last time I had beta - this is not apparent to me.
    ps: What if this case? do you need to uninstall and install the new version?

  • Auto update from 67 beta 5 or so attempts to start but it fails to start (68.0.3618.3).
    Changelog is going to 67 rather than 68. macOS file is missing in manual download.
    Grabbed 68.0.3618.5 and it starts fine.

  • A new Beta was just uploaded.

    • In Beta and in Dev 'Workspaces' are just missed in sidebar settings (on browsers Settings page)
      2020-03-10_170658.png
      in Stable version the Workspaces names are not synchronized with ones in Settings.
      2020-03-10_170145.png
      And think that adding/editing workspaces options should be on Settings page as well

    • Still no answer why duplicated speed dial tab (with 'x') is created each time I switch workspaces and the current workspace is automatically switched off when I click 'x' on that tab. It's confusing.
      Is it correct behavior or not? In my opinion it's not correct.
      If I do not create any tabs, the single speed dial tab should look as usually (without 'x') and no speed dial tabs should be re-created (you can see how the tab flickers/loads) if I just switch empty workspaces.

    • all these bugs in Beta now https://forums.opera.com/post/202034

  • @ralf-brinkmann This blog post has been edited/updated for 68.0.3618.5. The changelog link is now fixed too.

  • Again when you click on a link issued by a search engine, the page opens in the "Current tab", instead of the "New active tab".
    "Сhromecast" still not working

  • Opera 68 beta does not load (or crash) under Ubuntu 18.04 Multiple Opera-beta processes (at least 15) show up in the System Monitor and then disappear. I tried running Opera via command line to find out what's going on and I got the following error messages :

    command : opera-beta

    For the moment I'll try downgrading to Opera-beta 67.

  • p.s. I tried posting a comment with the error messages I get from the command line when trying to run Opera-beta 68 under Ubuntu 18.04 Unfortunately, despite how it looked when writing the comment, it appears that comments here are completely "monolithic", i.e. they don't recognize paragraphs and indentations at all. So the comment ended up looking like a block of mess, with the command line output mingled tightly with my own words. Sorry about that, and if the mods wish they may delete it. Thanks.

  • Had the same.
    Downloading and again upgrading via offline installer resolved issue for me.

  • @orobert Even if you have set those links to be opened in a new page?
