[Solved]Sidebar Facebook Messenger display issue

  • I think the problem still exists. It has been malfunctioning since Thursday's facebook messenger crash. If you use the sidebar only in a thin bar, the icons will slide on top of each other after you open the information tab. Because of this, cant click agian to the i icon, because the phonecall icon is in the top. Before the messenger crash the infobar opened next to the message bar, but now it always hide some part of it (only my messages, If you resize the sidebar, the width does not adjust to the width of the message field, but only to the recipient's message.) And if you want to send a multiline message, as you type, the message field will begin to obscure the recently received messages. And one other problem: Before the error, the background of the profile picture where there were unread messages changed to blue, but this has not been indicated by the application since then. (I have attached photos, I just have unread messages in 3 conversations, none of them are shown. In a normal tab messenger functionate correctly.)
    Opera version: 72.0.3815.400 with Windows 10 Pro

  • @bblans Current stable version is 73, do you still see the issue with that version?

  • @leocg, I upgraded to version 73, but unfortunately the bug still exists.

  • I also have the same issue as @bblans described. Looking forward to fixing this inconvenience.

  • @leocg should we remove the solved label? Or i must open a new topic for the problem? I send a ticket about the bug to opera support earlier. should I send a bug ticket to facebook messenger too? (sorry, I'm very annoyed by this malfunction)

  • @bblans There is a solution for the issue, so it will remain labeled as solved.

  • @bblans What is the behavior in a normal tab? What is the behavior in other browsers?

  • As i said, upgrading opera to version 73 doesn't help, no one wrote anything that would have solved the problem, the error persists. The the resize issue also exists in a normal tab, but marking unread messages works. I don't know other browser which have sidebar messengers, and in google chrome messenger.com has some temporary error, so i can't check this behavior on it.
    And if this functions worked well a week before, and now they dont thats an issue. Maybe not an opera specific issue, but an issue. If everyone / many of us experience this, I will patiently wait for the opera or messenger to fix it. The question was obviously whether there were anyone who could solve this on their own.

  • @bblans You need to check in a regular tab to see if it happens only on the sidebar panel or not.
    And you have to check in other browsers to see if it's a Facebook issue.
