Opera 75 brings easier access to top features

  • @shintoplasm01 Thank you, I've being using it for a while, and it is a superb app because it checks your grammar mistakes also, but it cannot be used on any of the sidebar apps like "Messenger" or "WhatsApp" which are the most crucial for me, since this is where I have to change languages a lot to communicate and need my spelling checked. I had in the past asked them about it, on their Opera Store version of the app, but they said they cannot make it work on Sidebar apps.... Let's hope by the time the Chromium Devs remove the flag indefinitely, they will have fixed the issue, since they know about it and have already found the solution.

  • Vivaldi will soon have native translation of pages, when Opera will have native translation of pages???

  • I found today that a telemed provider using doxy.me still can't see my camera and mic with Opera browser. I hope you're investigating. It worked up until earlier this month. Today it worked with Firefox, which had been inconsistent previously, according to the doctor.

  • @firuz-u7 What translation service will be used?

  • @leocg Opera Snapshot_2021-03-26_210435_vivaldi.com.png

  • @pavelopdev Thanks, never had heard of it.

  • I liked how does the transparent tabsbar looks in Vivaldi and how items highlighting effect depends on current background's main color (looks modern).
    I think Opera can have the similar fluid/semitransparent design.

  • @leocg: Ok, Follow up.
    I were going on the High intensity themes because it was the only officla way to be able to change colors manually, I dunno why MS blocked the colors settings UI for any other Windows Theme, replacing it with some fancy automatic "colorization".
    I've disabled it for the moment, but for any other theme the explorer background and the other colors will remain simply white.
    Other solution found in web, lead to installing of some hacking dll to release the security mechanisms of the theme handler MS's dll, not something I would like to do, if there is alternatives (the dead UxTheme and the newest fork on Github, SecureUx).
    Regarding to Opera, actually (75) a far as I can try, it seems that it is taking the colors straight from Windows colors, only if it is set an High Intensity theme, and not otherwise.
    So I am guessing, if this could be a new setup of Opera 75, to better handle the impaired vision / accessibility for people that uses the high intensity theme?
    Anyway, I'm trying to get full dark mode in windows without to use high intensity theme.
    I've not yet tested to change those experiment flags of the above post, because anyway, high intensity theme was giving a big number of visibility problems in many applications, and of course, also in many sites view under Opera.
    So I'm heading toward some different solution, if I find one. Every Theme / theme pack I've found so far to be enough dark, uses the UXTheme hack.
    I'm also willing to experiment with the Flux solution to dim the PC (it also has a dark mode). Any knowing of a solution please reply. Thanks

  • @leocg: Also, some Explorer colors are out of sight of any colour setting anywhere, including, modifying the registry, while, Hi Intensity themes provide dark color also here.
    I will update, if you don't need more info say so and I will stop bothering. Thanks

  • @albertop I once selected a high contrast theme on Windows to see how it would look like and Opera and other programs changed accordingly. So no, it's not something new.

  • Great!!! and it still won't run or load Bubbles IQ on FB. Hasn't done for months now (used to no problem but now just won't run or load it!!???). Bubbles IQ runs great on Firefox so Firefox must be a far better and far more superior browser. Have a nice day, y'all 🙂 🙂

  • Hi @baggin121, as I can see, Bubbles IQ push an update a few days ago on Facebook. Please check your settings for this page and reload cookies/clean cache if needed.

  • Hi @sgrandin, please check camera permissions for this website in Site Settings > Privacy and security > Camera. If issue still present, please send us screenshots on https://opera.atlassian.net/servicedesk/customer/portal/9

  • @andrew84: Good catch 😉 Added it on a list as DNA-92408

  • Despite my setting of desnoozing, Opera 75 starts snoozimg. Why?

  • I have a touch screen device. Opera is absolute Worse on touch screen.

    Cannot use gesture to move back/forward (like you can in Chrome and Edge), UI is Very small and can not be made bigger (like in Chrome with a flag), some features require Mouse Hover (like the new Player), which I do not have in touch/tablet mode.

    Considering Opera pioneered gestures on browsers this is a disgrace

  • Please add to messengers Viber and to the player Dezer

  • @tina: I filed bug report DNAWIZ-128652 the other day, but seeing your response now I've added four screenshots: camera settings page and three shots of what I encounter at doxy.me (short of the other party having tried to connect).

  • Opera just gets better and better ... thank you! 🙂
