[Solved]Bring back the "Recently closed" button on the top bar on the right

  • I am low vision and need it right there so I can compare. Please make this an option. All the moving my eyes around the screen, then clicking more than once is far too difficult. I'm begging you. This is the best browser for my vision problems.

  • I used a hack to get it back the last time you got rid of this, but I don't see a hack this time.

  • If you knew how many people hate you for removing search-in-open-tabs. (I use https://translate.google.com because you don't seem to read the Russian forum thread at all). I had to install Opera_69.0.3686.95, if the updates do not return search-in-open-tabs, I will look for another browser, as I heard, many are thinking about it.

  • I 5 year used a function the «Recently closed tabs», and you destroyed it in a flash, it became very uncomfortably without her and your magnifying glass is not needed, you cannot turn it off.
    I will remain on Opera 69.0.3686.95,

  • @marinadze Search in Open Tabs still exists in Opera 70.

  • @leocg

    After the update, the "recently closed" icon disappeared, a "search in open" magnifying glass appeared instead of it, a maximum of 3 last closed tabs. Why change something that works great? opera: // flags / # search-in-open-tabs
    Switch "Default (E)" to "Disablet". Now it doesn't work.

    I can't write very clearly because I don't know English and I use https://translate.google.com/. Developers read not only forums in English, look into others too.

  • @marinadze Okay, so you were talking about the flag and not the feature.

  • @superduper this flag is in Opera Developer v71.0.3763.0

  • @rocketank Gee, thanks. But I could see this from the screenshot.
    My post was not about about what Opera version this flag is in, but about its not being in my version of Opera.

  • The flag is now gone, i hate it so much....
    Why would you remove such a great working feature and not even give an option to retain it....

  • For a browser that is less well known struggling to gain share, it's appalling that a well-loved feature is simply ripped out. Recently closed tabs is my primary tool. I open a lot of tabs and close a lot, then realize I needed one of the closed. Happens often. Opera doesn't care about me, I don't care about it. I'm going to disable updates for now and prepare to switch to Firefox as my goto. #sad

  • Tried Vivaldi for a couple of days... Interesting. Nothing is perfect of course, but still the train of thought is clearly what we came to love opera for. A weird quirk is that Vivaldi registers the "speed dial" even in the recently closed menu, but otherwise it's just like the thing opera now-used to have (for obvious reasons 🙂 ).
    Looked at the browser usage statistics and I wonder why opera does things that drive away what already is a pretty small portion of the "market".

    I have been exactly the same

    I was also wondering that ... Opera little by little has stopped being something different, designed more for the user, to be more of the same.
    I will continue with Vivaldi.
    It is more like the real Opera when we all start to love it.

  • Bring it back.

  • @ericartman92 What I like about Vivaldi is that you can create additional speed dials. I think it's much more convenient than the favorites.

  • @leocg No one wants search in opened tabs, we want to reopen the tabs we closed (either accidentally or on purpose).

  • @superduper To be honest, I probably won't use that feature, but two things:

    1. I have the option in case I need it (take a hint opera)
    2. I am more concerned a bit with the fact that the speeddial there is considered a closed tab. (off-topic, sorry)
  • @ericartman92 I have hundreds of bookmarks and tens of speedial items. Bookmarks in opera are inconvenient to access. To have all the bookmarks on a speedial makes them much more convenient to use. Besides, it allows to categorize them in folders.
    Vivaldi also has a Note feature, which Opera did away with sometime in Opera 12-15. It's where you select a text in a web page and copy it to notes.
    The history is also much more extensive and more convenient to use.
    And, of course, the closed tabs button is there. And the list is much longer than in Opera when they had it.
    The only thing which it does not have it's a bookmark bar. But with the many speed-dials feature it's not that critical, although a bit less convenient.

    Personally, I am switching to Vivaldi. For the time being I will be testing it, to see that it does not have some unacceptable flaws, and if it doesn't, it's farewell Opera.

  • This is a case study on how products and companies die. It's happening in real time, before our eyes.

    Those people who are the product's champions, those motivated to communicate and post in forums most users wouldn't bother even discovering exist, are the ones who influence a product's outcome.

    Please, company developers, by all means, remove well-liked features and watch your champions openly discuss using your competition out of frustration. That's a great strategy. It worked for Blackberry.

  • @Rogerb And for Nokia , Ericsson also...!!!😁 😁 😁
