General Opera Feedback Topic

Navigation in Opera's newest update is a lot more difficult. I can't click on edges. I want to be able to put my mouse at the right edge of the screen and click and have it interact with the scroll bar. Instead it does nothing unless I adjust the mouse over to the left a few pixels. The same thing is happening for selecting open tabs that are a part of a group, clicking the top of the screen does nothing unless you move your mouse down a few pixels. This makes navigation very frustrating. Please fix this.

I was thinking about writing this feedback somewhere. Until today I didn't even know there was a forum about Opera - Aria told me about it.
I really can't understand how you can make such a great browser for smartphones and yet the desktop edition can be such a... what's the opposite of "great"? There are some good features on the desktop edition but as I said in the title, OFD will never be my default browser. Mostly bc of that limitation that doesn't allow to change the home page. There's a browser extension for Firefox which I love and can't live without (GroupSpeedDial) but I can't use it on Opera bc of the said limitation and that's not the only extension that doesn't work on OFD.
Also, the latest update adds rounded corners and there's no option to disable them. These rounded corners remind me too much of the pure GNOME3 (gross!).
I can only hope that some day you - the developers of Opera - will remember to give the users back the choices of customization and stop behaving like Microsoft who impose their views on the users. If I wanted someone to dictate what my browser will look like and behave, I'd use Internet Explorer or whatever it's called nowadays. Whereas Firefox, even with the web extensions (as opposed to the legacy addons) still offers the best customization level that no other browser on the market offers. Mine is so heavily customized that if I don't tell you it's Firefox, you'd never guess it.
Nearly half of the extensions I use on Firefox (and on Chromium) don't work on Opera and their developers say the reason for that are the constant limitations that you impose into the browser.
Opera used to be a great browser before it adopted the Chrome engine and before it became bloatware.
It really doesn't matter whether you'll approve this topic or not - the important thing is that you would have read it.

The back arrow to the left of the browser search tab is not working! Used to be able to directly access the login links from my saved passwords in settings can't do that either! This Opera one update is unnecessary! The big tabs and sidebars just make the browser look more bloated and congested as opposed to the slick and simple UI of the previous Opera, I'd really appreciate the ability to revert back to the previous version! But for now the issue is that back button

@vegelund I do, I type it in completely and hit enter, but every time it only searches the first two letters. Every Single Time.

Opera one stops working for more than ten minutes. Repeatedly.
Because of all the problems we are experiencing (see my other reports), I will give order today to all of our company's employees and customers to refrain from opera.
Our system managers recommended Firefox instead.
Good by, Opera!

So, other than the missing 'Speed Dial", the added useless (IMHO) Account button, the failure to restore tabs on restart, other reports from users of various things MIA, the sidebar where the frequently used bookmarks and history buttons are relegated to being to be as far as possible from the area where the mouse spends most of its time, I now have frequent page crashes and out of memory errors (bug submitted), my machine has plenty of free memory. This is using the same sites and browsing behavior as before. It doesn't help when you are trying to explain things you need doing to developers and support staff if when you open a page it crashes !
It's fine on refresh/reload, so it's not the page !
Anyway, the reason Windows 8 sucked is because it was an attempt, probably with far too much input from sales and marketing, to homogenise the user experience across desktop and mobile, it failed spectacularly and doomed the MS phone, which, while it wasn't large, had a loyal, mainly enterprise, user base.
Is V100, given all the issues users are having as well as some of the less than spectacular design decisions going to drive users away ?
Especially as FF has not had performance issues for several years, one of the reasons I started using Opera back in the day.

Software updates, including browser updates, can introduce changes that may not be well-received by all users. It's not uncommon for users to experience issues or have preferences for certain features that are no longer available. Developers often make design decisions based on a variety of factors, including user feedback, market trends, and technical considerations.
If you're experiencing frequent crashes, memory errors, or other issues with a specific browser version, it's advisable to reach out to the browser's support channels or forums for assistance. They can provide specific troubleshooting steps or inform you if there are known issues or workarounds for your concerns.
Regarding user adoption and retention, it ultimately depends on how well the browser addresses user needs and preferences. Browsers generally strive to balance performance, usability, and compatibility with evolving web standards. If users find the browser's performance to be lacking or if design decisions don't align with their preferences, it's possible that they may consider alternative options that better suit their requirements.
Remember that technology preferences can vary greatly among individuals, and there are multiple browsers available, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Exploring different options may help you find a browser that meets your specific needs and provides a more satisfactory user experience.

1) After right click on something there is a big useless unclickable space. In all other browsers and old opera - whenever i right click i just move mouse slightly to the right. Now i need to move to the right AND bottom. For no reason.
Look how it looks in Chrome.
2) Making X showing only on hover (to close a bar) is a bad idea. I like this minimalistic approach, however it is good only in theory, but in practice is not. It takes fraction of seconds of our time giving nothing in return. We need an option to keep it showing all the time.
Those two changes alone making me want to not use Opera ...

It takes fraction of seconds of our time
Maybe my mouse movements are slow, but I'm unable to reach the X-area before it appears.
So I would say it appears instantaneously, while giving us more tab text in return.

I cannot see tabs properly anymore only blurred icons, i cannot see witch tabs is playing a video or music because now they take twice more space and i cannot find any options to revert this. I need to revert back to the previous versions asap without losing all the tabs i have but it appear to have been made a specifically tedious task...

Hello, i'm kinda disliked the new layout for opera windows on the newer update, i prefer the previous one. if there any way to revert the update version.
Also, the new layout, when you have a pinned tab with audio playing in it, it's kinda hard to click that pinned tab because the mute audio button are so big, so you need to click the edge to go to the pinned tab. Please fix it.
Please also bring back the "Back to Speed Dial/Home" button.

What is this nonsense you've flung on me without my permission? It's gone all mac like or phone like or something. It doesn't look like a proper browser anymore. There isn't even an X on each tab until I hover over it, and everything's got round corners, what incase I hurt my finger on it? I think I'll choose another browser, goodbye.

Absolutely agree. The new design is total crap!

Really? It hasn't even been 100 years. Finally, tab groups have appeared, I've been waiting for this for so long. This functionality was already available somewhere in 2016, but for some reason, they removed it. I'm finally satisfied; I no longer have a whole carousel of tabs.
