  • You guys absolutely have to have containers as Firefox does. For me, it seems you're faster and less glitchy and, that's why I'm still using Opera. And, the visual quality is just cleaner with the text and everything displayed being crisp and seeming high-resolution. I love that. However, there are serious limitations with extensions or, add-ons as they're called in Firefox. Right now, it's the workspace feature, the clean and tight look of the assets displayed that are keeping me using it. Firefox is kind of evidently slow. However, the range of add-ons and now, the container feature has had me downloading it. I'm really considering switching to it. I would have no choice because those features just align with my workflow. And, your bookmark feature is too much headache. Too, too much headache with that "Passphrase" thing.

    Your scaling is the incredible. However, scaling isn't everything.

    Thanks.

  • Hello, I've been using Opera for a few weeks for home and work, and I've noticed a lack of some serious quality of life functions you see in other browsers that make it hard to keep using, especially at work.

    1. No function to clear browser/cache/download history on exit. This exists in Chrome and Firefox, but not here. It is a bit of a necessity at work, as I have to open hundreds of spreadsheets I download daily, and it just floods the download bar. Sure, I can manually clear it, but that seems like an unnecessary option to do when every other browser does it for you. It also helps with security if others get on my PC.

    2. No option to open files directly. You have to download then double click the item in the download list to open files. Again, Firefox and Chrome has this option, not sure why Opera doesn't have this. I see that people have been asking for this for years. As I said above, I download hundreds of spreadsheets a day, and having the option to have the file loaded into temporary internet files and open up automatically makes life so much easier. With Opera, I have to select a singular folder and everything saves there, then I have to manually open it. It's kind of annoying to do this, and it floods my download folder. I could change the download folder to the windows temp folder, but then all my files will go there. It's just a giant annoyance.

    3. Middle Mouse Button doesn't close last tab. This is just an annoyance to me. I've always closed all my browsers by using the middle mouse button to close all the tabs. You can still do this, but the last tab will never close, it just opens up the tiles page.

    I'm just posting some stuff I've noticed, and I can see from googling, a lot of others have made these complaints over the last few years with no real response. I just felt I needed to add my own comments on this, as I truly do enjoy this browser, but some functions are just, honestly, poorly designed for use as a browser to use for work.

  • Another issue i'm finding is after watching youtube videos for a couple of hours, the browsers have a video crash, then continue to do so every few minutes. They recover well enough, but it's very consistent only on Opera.

  • Opera is working just fine, all aspects. But a few points, queries occur...

    1. Must I have always to delete the messenger etc icons in the sidebar every time Opera updates? Are they that fantastic?
    2. I cannot find a setting to stop Opera immediately switching to the new tab whenever I click on a link in a webpage - I get to wait while the page loads.....
    3. Just wondering.... why does Opera always install to a version folder under Program Files instead of to some nominated folder, named something like Opera? Why no choice as to installation location?
    4. Something else, but I've forgotten what, so it is obviously as little important as the preceding points....
      Cheers. Still my favourite browser...., even if it creates so many opera files and uses a mass of memory now. " Build it and they will come." sure applies to RAM availability.
  • @zrygy-0 Regarding 3, If you click on options in the installer you can change the installation directory.

    And about the version folder, that's how Opera works.

  • i can not use anything that opera over
    can not online instal opera so i use an offline install file
    can not open opera site the only way that i can do that no is throw using TOR
    can not download any from https://addons.opera.com/extensions?hl=en-US

    can not able to use VPN that opera have

    what can i do to solve this problems

  • @mohamedzaki It seems that Opera servers/sites are blocked where you live. You can try using a VPN to access them.

  • @leocg
    i try number of VPN no one of them work

  • Something completely ruined Opera. Every version after 66 is plagued by freezes and "Not responding" pages. I'm tired of fighting this, Opera has become unusable. I've managed to freeze my Opera at v.66 but it obviously can't be a permanent fix. Initially, I was hoping these problems were just "growing pains" but new versions come and go and it doesn't get better. I can't be the only one with these problems, so any ideas?

  • There were several times that I opened my Speed Dials and there it is: some annoying advertissements on top. Is Opera who put them there and I don't like it at all.

  • Hi advise someone suddenly stopped going weather and there is only a message see the name Topicu.Thank you!Opera Snímek_2020-11-25_143832_startpage.png
