Opera 73.0.3827.0 developer update

  • the weird look of the 'recently closed' items on the BABE still happens sometimes.

  • I can't see recently closed tabs?

  • Some bug with the search on the Settings page (the search is performed for some invisible letter/phrase in the search field). Similar issue in Stable too.
    Please, confirm.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. For example I search security, I type 'sec'. Works fine
      2020-09-30_145045.png
    2. Then I press Backspace to delete the phrase (important here is to delete letter by letter and allow to perform search after each letter was deleted). When I delete all the letters and the search field is empty the 's' letter is highlighted everywhere.

    3. Now even if type the whole word 'security' it won't be found (it seems that it searches for 'ssecurity' or 'curity' in this case). The wrong write/read to/from the clipboard or similar issue.

  • Could you make it possible so that the tabs inside a hidden workspace are not displayed in the "search tabs" feature? If I have hidden a workspace, I don't want the tabs within that workspace to be listed when searching for tabs.

  • The bug with OMenu > History/Bookmarks is still not fixed!
    If the sidebar is enabled and 'open in panel' option is selected, then OMenu > History/Bookmarks (or Ctrl+H/ Ctrl+Shift+B shortcuts) open in panels as well instead of the full page view.

    Why the Sidebar setup affects OMenu? Where's the logic, Sidebar setup this is not OMenu setup.

  • @andrew84: This bug is already reported. Thank you 🙂

  • @AngelinaPaluyanava what about the OMenu ->History/Bookmarks bug?

  • Decided to check back on Opera to see what's new.... and thank god i jumped ship. These new features tbh look awful. The monstrosity that is the BABE and the "enhanced addressbar". I can see that very strong influences that Opera is getting from Yandex, but at least those Russians know how to make a good intuitive UI... Something Opera devs seem to have forgotten after Opera Neon and during the fugly RebornUI implentation.

    Also it looks like Opera Dev is quietly trying to install a known PUP/Adware via Opera installer on my device and constantly failing due to Windows Defender catching it and removing it thankfully.

    What is Foxibro:
    https://www.virusguides.com/foxiebro-virus-removal/

    RIP Opera, has fallen from good graces and came crashing down flat on your face onto concrete. This happened after using a cleanly installed Opera Dev... Why does Opera want to install/update shit silently without users consent? And it's not like Opera browser stopped trying to install. It tried to install Foxibro 4 times immediately after while I used Opera. Absolutely disgusting behavior, imo shows complete contempt for the user. Unable to put in your preferred/custom search engine shows this as well. Is Opera a malware now? That would be pretty interesting.

    Another reason to abandon Opera for me as well as to never disable your AV or AM

  • Latest Windows 10 Insider Security Center detect Win32/Foxiebro during opera dev update.

  • @ranger375 "What Foxiebro does? How does it operate? Well, the PUP injects all of your browsers with numerous advertisements. Every page that you visit is heavy on banners, coupons, price comparisons, offers, pop-ups, video ads, etc. and etc. Even the pages which used to be ad-free. And, the commercials you see don’t look random, do they? No. They look like they have been selected for you and you alone. Isn’t this strange? Not really. The PUP knows you better than you think. It studies you and knows what you like and what you have searched for. Then, it uses this information to generate ads which appeal to you. But your browsing interests are not the only thing that gets monitored.

    Your privacy is jeopardized too. This includes usernames, password, IPs, email addresses, accounts. Even your personally identifiable and financial credentials may get stolen. If this happens, what do you think the PUP will use them for. It will send it to it developers who can use them for whatever they want. Or, they can sell them to third parties. There is no need of explaining why and how this is dangerous, is there? And what is worse, your problems don’t stop here."

    I'll be abandoning Opera for the 2nd time. Decided to give them a 2nd chance, and got this. Immediately removed Opera. Won't be looking back until their next Opera refresh.

  • @artexjay Windows Defender showed that warning here but five seconds late it as saying that there was no threats.

    same for oficial public version of W10 (aka 2004)

  • What the hell is going on?

    It seems that Opera doesn't bother about it (even if it's a false positive threat).

  • Well this is absolutely horrendous from you Opera. This tried to run in the background this morning, with no user confirmation or input after having not used opera for quite some time. Also tries to re-run itself when uninstalling opera. Some answers are needed here quick, but I do not think any you can give will be satisfactory.

    I was using Opera stable. Opera Developer 73.0.3827.0.0 installed, but not running.
    Windows 10/x64

  • @artexjay Same experience with the recent Opera dev edition update - it was trying to install the Foxiebro.

    When Windows Defender automatically deletes it, then the notification does not appear, but the dll for Foxiebro is in the install package.

    This is terrible for a legitimate browser! And a potential reputation killer.

    The release edition of Opera does not seem to have this issue only the dev edition.

    Intentional or unintentional the Opera team must acknowledge this and issue a fix - possibly including an apology for the slip up.

    Thank you.

  • @padua Where did you all get this version of Opera and which one is it?
    I have here the official Opera_Developer_73.0.3827.0_Setup_x64.exe from https://get.opera.com/ftp/pub/ and the Microsoft Windows Defender did not find anything. No problems here.

  • @padua Same here. So how do I uninstall this?
    Thanks
