  • 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)

      in Stable version the Workspaces names are not synchronized with ones in Settings.

      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?

  • @leocg: This works, but I’ll have to enable it in the settings or constantly log into my account, which is not very convenient.

  • The update has reset my all flags settings to the factory settings. WTF you doing, Opera?

  • @jlenfers: Still not working, but thanks.

  • I would suggest to add option to give window a name too and then add possibility to Add to workspace of other window. I have 4 windows which contains plethora of tabs and arranging them using workspace is tempting but currently annoying -> drag tab to another window that contains desired workspace. For example I could have windows called Work and Joy and Surfing. Work could contain workspaces like Coding, Databases, Devices. When i am on Surfing window and find something to be checked later I could use menu to Move tab to Workspace Work\Databases

  • Problem with the webpages fayerwayer and adblocker (opera):
    https://www.fayerwayer.com/archivo/

  • @lhe275-0 You forgot to say what the problem is.

  • @leocg: With adblocker activated, the web page shows the message "CARGANDO..." (loading), but nothing is displayed.
    without the adblocker activated, the web page works correctly.

  • In this Beta, when I right click to save an image on any web page, the browser crashes and restarts. Latest Windows 10.

  • @albert71292 Works fine here on Windows 10. No crash.

  • @burnout426: Think I've narrowed it down to the "History Disabler" extension ( https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/history-disabler/ ). I've used the extension for ages, but it didn't cause any crashes before the latest Beta update.
