[Solved]Address/Search bar doesn't work, won't let me enter, grays out text, etc

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.

How this bug made it on to stable version, blows my mind.
I thought beta goes through and extent wave of testing before pushing towards stable?

@Swollward same! Mad! Thanks for reporting. I run 72.0.3815.207 Windows 10. Bug seems across other machines too, possible earlier version. I only noticed now, was almost a week on vacation not using Opera that much. Picture: https://imgur.com/Y8AeeXE
Hope this gets fixed soon, KR

Solved! Thank you Opera!!! You are the absolute tits! I wish voice search worked but you're still the best and my heart saddens to know that most humans don't use you and have such an orgasmicly true browsing experience

Got the same problem. Just updated to Version:72.0.3815.207, the problem is still there. What I do is to hilite the web address I typed in then copy and then right-click and Paste and search and it goes through.
