Latest Update Broke the Opera UI

  • @ctrlaltdel Not everyone experiences these issues and not everyone has problems with it. Most people would just go ahead and try it themselves for a day/week before deciding it. Its a free piece of software that you can easily install/uninstall along side any other browser. So yes, it (still) reads to me like the OP was looking for a reason to not try it. That is the troll part. Why bother posting that comment at all?

    The browser is broken; the only people not having issues with it are the people that likely already had hardware acceleration activated.

    The poster you called a troll, for no reason, was merely stating that he was glad that he came and checked things out here before installing.

    He wasn't promoting another browser, he wasn't insulting a specific operating system in favor of another operating system and he wasn't ridiculing Opera users.

    He merely stated that he was happy that he didn't go ahead and install a broken browser before checking out the comments here. That is what this board is for, to help people.

    He was helped by visiting here. No one is enough of a fanboy of any software, I don't think, to call someone a troll for refusing to use a product that is not currently working correctly.

    Free or proprietary doesn't really matter for what is being discussed. Of course anyone can uninstall or not use any piece of software that they don't like. But, if anyone was trolling, it was you be being reactionary and feeling as if you had to be the defender of Opera's integrity.

  • I had the same problem. Everything worked fine until I updated Opera to 71.0.3770.148. I went back to version 70.0.3728.154 where this problem does not occur. My system is MX Linux (MX 19.2_x64 patito feo).

  • Version 71.0.3770.271. Still nothing.

  • I can't use the mouse right-click function in the newest Linux version opera browser. Could you please solve this problem? Thank you very much.

  • Hello, thank you very much for your help. I run Ubuntu 18.04 in VirtualBox. I enable hardware acceleration in the opera brwoser settings. But I still can't use the mouse right-click function in opera browser. How to solve this problem? Thank you so much for your help again.

  • @KetoKelo - fixed it for me, thanks KetoKelo!

  • @metarhyme What did? Hardware acceleration or version 71.0.3770.271?

  • @davidrmf - in version 71.0.3770.271 turning on hardware acceleration terminates the bizarre behavior of no apparent right mouse click and so forth.

  • Just wanted to confirm. Actually, on all three versions since the problem started, turning Hardware Acceleration solves the situation. Basically, no changes in the most recent version. Unfortunately, turning that on is not an option for all of us. Thanks for replying.

    That's unfortunate. I got the Opera 72 update but thought I'd check here before going to the trouble of installing it, not having it work, and then having to rollback to Opera 70.

    I was hoping that all the versions of 71 were going to be the only ones not working correctly and everything would be back to normal when Opera 72 arrived.

    At this point, forcing you to turn on hardware acceleration or not being able to use the browser seems to just be a feature for Opera Linux users, not an error, and will never be changed.

    It may be time to move on.

  • In my case hardware acceleration may randomly cause system crash like following while browsing a site. This bug related to Linux AMD graphic driver. This is Chromium bug since it the same for Opera and Vivaldi. I'm using both browsers every day and I intentionally disable hardware acceleration in Opera and enable in Vivaldi as longtime experiment.

    As the result, the "hardware acceleration" option in Opera 71+ for me is now a switch between unusable UI and potential system crash. Keeping Opera 70 installed.

  • Hoi,
    I updated to version 72.0.3815.148 from October 21 and now the right-click-menu seems to work.
    (even without hardware acceleration activated) Yay.

    So, I recommend to update to the latest version.

    However there is now a kind of design issue, every time you right-click and the menu starts to open there is a kind of double flickering while opening, happens to the O-Menu too.

    But at least you can access the right-click-menu and the O-Menu now.

    🙂

    Thanks for the update, joklok. That is wonderful news and I'm grateful to hear of it.

  • @joklok Yep! I can confirm what you said, including the bloody flickering. But at least we can disable hardware accel! 🙂

  • I just updated, all menus are back. In my case, they seem just a tad bit slower than usual, but no flickering whatsoever. One less thing to worry about.
