Where is the "Recently closed tabs/Tab menu" button on the top right?

Why replace good old functionality with other?! It is just stupid.

The dropdown list on top right used to show all open tabs, and on mouseover used to preview each open tab. That was extremely handy when I had many tabs open to quickly see which tab has what in it. I also used the Recently Closed list in it a lot which is also gone! The mouseover previewing was unique to Opera!! Why was it removed??
Yes, I know there exists a flag to get it back for now (opera://flags/#search-in-open-tabs), but why would you (devs) change the default feature?? And as a flag, it's probably gonna die out in a few stables releases. Aren't you just making Opera bland & similar to other browsers by removing such an important convenience feature, thus driving away users?

@sgunhouse I find it ridiculous to be honest.
I myself am a developer, and whenever there's a feature that's being retired, there's always a sane and valid reason to do so, it is also explained thoroughly to the user why it has been done so. Since this was a feature for ease-of-use, it has been moved for no apparent reason. In the end, the quality and easy of use has degraded regardless of one's view - instead of making one click to access closed tabs (because not always do we need the last one), we now have to make additional movements and clicks. What's more, it's not placed far from tabs, where it was previously placed and felt natural.
Had to roll back and disable auto-update. Thank you very much for forcing me to tick to older versions because of no apparent reason.
I am very disappointed in how opera turned out to be, especially considering why so many of us have used it since version 9 and even before that.
I completely agree with ericartman92. Removing a unique feature of convenience and replacing it with one of degraded convenience is terrible move, and it drives away Opera's users. Why would you eliminate features that distinguish Opera from Chrome & Firefox?? It's not like Opera has the majority market.

Till the last version there was a button to open a dropdown-menu of closed tabs.
I liked this very much.
The new solution that I have to open closed tabs one after one to find the tab I'm looking for is annoying and unpractical.
Any chance to get the button back?

Holy crap this is a bad move. This is one of the features in Opera I use most.

How do I remove "Tab Search" and return "recently closed tabs" in its place ??? After the upgrade it came out no one needs shit, tabs and so open, what do I search for? How to return recently closed?

I had to move my computer and now my Opera got updated to the new loadout
I don't know about the average IQ of Opera users but I certainly don't need a function to find specific tab because you can just drag your damn tabs to organize them
While you might find you need a page that you didn't knew you need before you closed it or just closed it accidentally
Also why dafuq is the Search in tabs all fking white even in dark mode
Do your damn engineers even test the damn product before pushing them out

I also join the shouting fest here. Anyway, please keep the feature of the 'tabs trashbin'. It is more productive to close stuff and reopen what is needed than to search in too many open tabs.
Or find a way to merge the two for all I care.

Where is "recently closed tabs" gone? I don't see any use for this another search button, in any case.
Seems like Opera's "button displacement department" is the most hard-working guys in their development team.

After lates update I saw that you replaced a useful "Resently closed" button by "Search". It was one of my favourite function in Opera, because it simple to use in two clicks. But now I should open the lateral panel (1), chose what I closed (2), and close the panel (3). So +1 useless step. And it is so unconfornable to use!
Please, turn my favourite button back (or make it configurable for turning in).

Great. The feature I used Opera for (that and mouse gestures) is now gone.
I guess it's time to use other browsers and see if there's an addon that does the same.

Once again - disable
opera://flags/#search-in-open-tabs- should help for now.

It's pretty clear by this point that this "experiment" is a big fat fail, please let it die.
I'm using Opera on my phone and computer, and have been using it since it was paid/ad supported. Lately it feels like the devs are forcing more and more crap onto the users, with more and more incentive for users to switch platform.

I used to press that button literally every day and after updating my Opera, i had a little shock for a while.
I always close tabs and need to reopen from last closeds literally every day. I have more than 150+ tabs because of my job currently, still I accidentally discovered "Search in Tabs" feature using shortcut (probably was Shift+Tab but it seems removed) but never used.
That button was one of best features of Opera when I start using it in 2009 and I still love it.
I hope developers find another way to implement new features without making old boys sad.

@kkthxbye Type opera://activity in address bar or try the sidebar icon if it shows up.
"If it shows up". What exactly determines if it shows up? I have two installations, both Windows 10 64 bit, both version 68.0.3618.63, with the following result:
I am trying to get accustomed to the loss of this "Tab menu", but this is frustrating. Further, only one machine shows the tabs from the other machine on the "opera://activity" page, but if I set the flag that removes the new "Search in tabs" button, the original "Tab menu" DOES show other machine's tabs.
What is going on? Are these just bugs, or intended functionality? If the latter, please explain.
Update: The machine that did have the Tabs sidebar item has now lost it after a restart (no update to Opera though).
