Since the 71 update, Opera GX shows a full-screen accent color while loading webpages

  • Hello. Since GX was updated to v71, it started to pick up the accent color of my desktop wallpaper and show it until the webpage loads instead of showing a normal, black GX background. This only happens when I enable the "Show wallpaper" option in start screen settings and select my desktop as the source. Since this accent color takes up the whole page while loading the website, it becomes cumbersome to see it each time before a page is loaded. Seeing that this isn't fixed after many updates to v71, I had to resort to finding a desktop wallpaper that has a softer accent color so GX picked that. Does this count as a bug and will it be fixed?

    This is the color I thought I'm okay with seeing before each and every page loads.

  • Even after today's 71.0.3770.323 update, this fullscreen colour problem still persists for me. Anyone else having this issue?
