Opera 71.0.3749.0 developer update

  • no fixes for the blinking [+] button (https://forums.opera.com/post/216939) and jumping volume indicator on vodeo pop out (https://forums.opera.com/post/216991)

  • 'Shared start page' feature still needs optimizing/improvements, there are still fragments from previous tabs visible (popups, expanded lists, scrolled page) when creating new tabs).

    The similar is with the browser UI, still there are a lot of flashbangs/flickerings.

  • DOM element highlight on hover (developer tools, element inspect by Ctrl + Shift + C) got broken for some builds already, still not fixed. Please take a look!!!

  • I don't know how necessary is this 'Easy Files', but I don't see any improvements regarding the one of the main features, 'Search in tabs' feature (Tab Menu in the past). Still only 3 closed tabs, still no dark mode support, still no ability closing open tabs.
    Taking into account that you already removed the flag (before making the feature fully functional) the only solution for me is to block the 70 Stable version update.

  • @ralf-brinkmann: For now it seems that it works.... Let's see next days.

    +1

    Removing of "closed tabs" functionality without any reason and without acceptable replacement - and No , 3 closed tabs in new "search in opened tabs" is not acceptable replacement! - is a no go for 71 for me 😕

  • @krteq then you should block the 70 version, current 70 Beta doesn't have the flag already.

  • @jojo0587: this bug has already been fixed in current version

  • Yet more bloatware... for a feature that I don't think is particularly useful,, Welp my story with Opera seems to be coming to an end. Opera still remains completely resistant to common sense (similar to the narrow minded mod leo), it seems and wants to bloat their browser with more useless features and remove the ones that users used. I personally do not like where Opera is going or wants to go at the moment. Especially when you have browsers like Yandex, Vivaldi and Whale among others who have refined rthe features that Opera has and even advanced past where Opera is currently at. As well as what appears to me to be poor resource allocation for their projects.

  • @danstudio: thanks for pointing this out. Reported internally for further investigation.

  • Hi.
    Opera Developer on Linux OpenMandriva Lx Cooker with latest Plasma5.
    After upgrade to developer 71.0.3749.0 can't right click on links because Opera crash or freeze for few seconds.
    Look here: https://youtu.be/zE-F5Q7w0Zs

  • @andrew84: You are right, I forgot that stable is on 69 now

    Visse. Removing closed tabs is really the last straw.

  • Easy Files is a great feature, at least for me.

    I'd like to know something else. Why do I still see only 3 recently closed tabs? Change this ASAP!

  • @simcard: And the problem returned 😕

  • @krteq: in their screenshot in this 70 version announcement https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2020/05/opera-70-0-3701-0-developer-update there is 'show more' dropdown, but it seems that they are not hurry in implementing this or this is just a picture (cheating).

  • Bug.
    After switching themes dark > light or vice versa the text on tabs is unreadable. If the browser was started with active light theme, then it's enough tabs hovering by the cursor to restore the correct view. If browser was tarted with dark theme, then after switching the light theme on inactive tabs will be black on hover.

  • Bug (with crash)

    Open 'Search in tabs' popup > minimize browser without closing the popup (important: minimize it by clicking icon on the task bar, not [ _ ] button in the top right corner) > restore the browser window.

    1. the restored window is dimmed and unresponsive (if crash doesn't happen)
    2. When I click on the dimmed area a crash happens (not always, but often. If crash didn't happen for the first time, repeat the steps above again).
      Happens on ALL channels here. Please,confirm somebody.
  • @andrew84 I could confirm it here. Issue number 2 took a while to happen by the way.

  • Hmmmm
