Click twice to close tabs - sometimes

  • Recently Opera has started to require two clicks (or two presses of cmd-w) to close a tab. It does not happen all the time and I have yet to find a pattern, but it seems that a restart of opera fixes it for some time.
    The clicks does not have to be immediately after one another I can for instance click close on a tab and goto another tab and the return and be able to click once more and then the first tab closes.

    Anyone else with that problem?

    Opera version: 73.0.3856.344

  • @kjeldahl I use Cmd-W to close tabs on my Mac &, yes, I'm having this experience too. I have to do Cmd-W twice, now, which is why I happened on your entry. Hopefully it's a temporary glitch & resolves in the next update.
