  • @plovec Yes, it is simple. Delete "browser_action_visible" in JSONEdit.

  • @andrew84 said in Opera 69 comes with built-in Twitter:

    @spike666 Try to turn off the ads Blocker, I have the same on gsmarena with youtube embedded videos. But I'm on Windows.

    Thanks! Worked fine so I've gone back and turned off ads just for the site as I am on it regularly. Know what to do in the future too.

  • @burnout426

    Thank you for the tip. I disabled this function:

    Web Platform Controls updated UI

    If enabled, HTML forms elements will be rendered using an updated style. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, Android


    And now it is as it should be. So maybe it's worth reporting this to Chromium that they would look at it.

  • I noticed slower speed of showing speed dial on cold boot Opera when weather widget activated.
    Opera fast start, but loading Speed Dial is much slower then O68.

  • Hi, how do I remove the little "Extensions" box that has appeared at the right of the toolbar? It wasn't there before updating to Opera 69 and I don't want it there now. I hate it when developers force things on users - at least give us a warning and an option to have or not!

  • This version 69 of the Opera browser for desktop on Windows 10 seems to have affected the Telegram feature in the sidebar.

    After the update, whenever I click on Telegram in the sidebar (which is already synced to my phone's Telegram app). It shows a blank page. I tried reloading the sidebar several times and also clearing browsing data, but, it is still not working.

    Any idea on how to fix this problem?

  • @kened: I've spent several years building this profile... and actually this work/profile and my habit are the only things to keep me with this browser.

    Stable release is supposed to work out-of-the-box... or at least it's my tendency with my programs.

  • Updating to 69 causes constant crashing loop where the browser will simply crash, then restart. All extensions went missing, when later checked if they were actually missing in extensions section, they were all disabled.
    Speed Dial went completely missing.
    Weather widget, just another annoyance no one asked for and is forced on the user
    Twitter is fine for those who want it but this isn't the problem with Opera
    The problem is they can't build a browser that updates without messing up somehow and taking away the user's data.
    Why is it that the Speed Dial just disappeared? Why did extensions disable? Why does the browser keep going into a Launch-Crash-Relaunch bootloop cycle?
    Had to revert back to 68 from backup and had to fully disable updates by deleting task scheduler, renaming updater, and --disiable-update in launch options.
    Whatever is causing the crashes and issues has to be fixed, thats the point of the update. No body wants to start over again when each new major update comes out.
    I have been on Chrome since the last time Opera had a big update blunder and have not had a single issue updating Chrome (or Chromium) not only are faster, but much much more reliable than Opera has been as of late, I have lost trust and faith in Opera completely this time, second time these Start - Crash - Relaunch boot loop cycle, loosing all speed dials, Slow Startups, All extensions magically just turning off, Opera user login not working, all these bugs right after updating to 69.
    And the funny thing is, some people are not having these issues, or are not noticing the minor issues that are leading to bigger issues later.
    In terms of reliability, trust, dependability, lets just say that Opera icon will be fighting for space on the desktop, and the desktop has PLENTY of space, even so, the only thing that remains is that beloved O icon, just as a reminder of how good Opera used to be and how bad it is now that only the Icon itself is the pleasing part remaining.

  • @greenpalmer-0:
    Extensions Toolbar Menu --> Disabled

  • Congrats in the update

    Needs a bunch of Chromium security updates based on chrome://about

  • @ayhangur: Thanks very much - all kinds of other interesting stuff in there as well

  • I think that if Opera used active tab accent color, as Vivaldi does, it would be easier to identify it.

  • @andrew84 The problem is that extensions hidden from the panel in previous versions cannot now be returned to the list of extensions, except by editing the settings files.

  • @ext Chromium accepted all the changes, so it's unlikely it'll help. However, you can post a bug at about the specific things you don't like about the new styles. Maybe they will agree with some of them.

  • Am I the only one with the speed dial issue? The text in thumbnails is inconsistent after update - some are big and some are small.

  • Is it possible to decrease the requirements for libgtk in the next Opera
    release? I think there are many users who use Opera under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS which is not yet phased out. With a manual update of libgtk we will run into problems with other applications such as Nautilus...

  • Using Opera browser with Linux for more than 10 years, just awesome. At this time Opera is the more creative, innovative browser in the world. Each major update it's juste awesome. Thank Opera team developer. Developers love innovation, developers love Opera #Thanks

  • @paulsg1: probably crapera freezes because the synchronization feature.
    On my Arch Linux crapera 69 took ~20 minutes to unfreeze after opening by the first time.

  • @loysek: Same thing on Arch Linux.
