same here. version 72.0.3815.207 on win 10.
the later update also had this bug, updated and its still the same.
my issue seems like everyone elses, with search only working when clicking elsewhere and back on the search box.

This very weird bug appeared to me when I started to regularly check Politico site regarding U.S. elections. I almost feel like this exact site is causing this weird crash.

@eettcc For some reason, it's working today. But, now the Predictive Search Service can't be turned off. I like it off because I don't like suggestions popping down off the address bar. I turn it OFF in Settings and the suggestions still pop down. I turn it ON and they pop down. ON or OFF, the Predictive Service suggestions keep popping down, it won't turn off. Sigh.

I'm having the same problem as all the people here, except when it happens to me, the text doesn't gray out and instead the address bar just doesn't work. I hope Opera really fixes this as it makes the browser pretty unusable. It happens each time I open up a tab and start typing.

Same problem here. It is super annoying and so far the only workaround I have found is use the shortcut to enter search or refresh the page.
It is such a common thing that is broken that it really make the browser unusable in some sense.

It's been three days and it has still not been fixed. One of the core functionalities is bugged and no reaction for such a long time? Well, it's just pathetic.
I wonder what is the dev team doing - probably adding another useless bloatware like Booking or AliExpress popups... Get your shit together and fix it!

Why isn't there an update yet? shouldn't priority be set to high?

The same problem here, version 72.0.3815.207. Is there any page to report proper bugs to the opera software or it is just this forum?

facing this: address bar is not responding if entering something. Later, it switches to Duck or History, but initially nothing happening. (as intended!)
Did I activate this behavior somehow, somewhere, accidentally? I don't have it on my Notebook opera. (Both Versions latest - 72.0.3815.207)
What is expected, in this example 'asdf', is that it's searched by Duck if I hit ENTER, but nothing happens if I hit enter. It stays grey.
PS I tried searching and reading help/threads, but couldn't find solutions.

I was having the same problem since Thursday. None of those annoying "workarounds" (such as alt-tabbing) are realistically feasible. The only solution is to restore to older version. For me it was 64.0.3417.119, before bookmark rework fiasco.
In the recent year or two Opera dev's work had disappointingly poor quality. They keep making poor design decisions, essentially forcing the customers to "eat up" what they came up with, instead of listening to recommendations and suggestions. I do not recall a single useful change since 2019.
