  • 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.

  • Fix thick scroll bars on KDE Plasma desktop environment please.
    Arch Linux, KDE Plasma 5.19.2.

  • Remove the black outline around the fields and drop-down lists, it looks very poor.

  • In recent versions, it takes about 30 seconds to download speed dial, a similar situation with the browser settings window. Even on SSD.

  • This post is deleted!
  • Why? I work really hard to block these so called free speech social media platforms that steal your information and track you. i sincerely hope that you programmed in a way completely disable this added bloat to this browser or I am out.

  • Yandex is doing a nicely job in picture-in-picture. Its pip can enable automatically, user can change pip button position on screen and, recently, they added subtitles on pip.

  • @firuz-u7 I totally agree with you, without the Viber plug-in would not be a proper update.
