Instagram sidebar wont show and or play stories

  • Hello, i recently switched from chrome to opera and i loved the concept of the apps in the sidebar (whatsapp, instagram), right now im having a little issue with the instagram sidebar app, on the main feed page it wont show the stories at all, just shows blank circles with no names, only way i can see stories is by going to random profiles and click on their story icon.
    Things ive tried to solve the issue:

    1. Disabled all extensions
    2. Disabled ad blocker
    3. reset to default settings
    4. reinstalled opera (running latest version 68.0.3618.63)
    5. Disabled antivirus and firewall

    Im using Windows 10 Pro, heres a screenshot of the issue, the stories on the main page are blank and non clickable. Any ideas?
