  • With the most recent update to 69.0.3686.77, this old bug has reappeared.

    When I open a new tab with Ctrl+T or by hitting the "+" button in the tab bar, the tab opens with focus on address field.

    But when I open a new tab with a mouse gesture, focus is not on the address field.

  • Yes, very very frustrating.

  • I'm starting to get used to hitting Tab right after opening a tab now, but it's still annoying and breaks my workflow.

  • It's not happening to me with version 70.0.3728.71 (most recent as of now).

  • Just updated and still getting the problem.

  • Just did some testing and it seems my mouse gestures extension no longer plays nice with Opera. This problem goes away when I switch to built in gestures.

    However, Opera's native gestures are very limited in scope and cannot be configured, so a gestures extension is a must.

    Something changed 2 builds back (I think) that makes my gesture extension not work right. Very vague, I'm aware, but that's all I have to go on as well.

  • I indeed have the default gestures, so I cannot comment on custom ones. 😞
