[Solved] Recently Closed Tabs option does not work

  • @luciflash said in Recently Closed Tabs option does not work:

    Same issue here. Ctrl + Shit + T opens a random tab, from the same (or different) browsing session.
    The actual problem is that the recently closed tab (magnifying glass) does not update the tabs.
    Worked fine in Opera 75.

    This problem exists for me with the latest Opera 76 on Linux, also.

  • I have the same issue, the "Reopen last closed tab" option is not working properly.

    So for example, if I close Opera and open it, the "Reopen last closed tab" will work for a while, but after using Opera for a couple of minutes the "Reopen last closed tab" won't work properly anymore and will open a random tab and not the previous one that was closed recently. I'm using the latest Opera version btw and this issue is not fixed yet.

  • Hello! I have a problem with opening a recently closed tubs. For some reason when I press "Open last closed tab" in the tabs section, the browser opens a new window with a tab that I closed several hours ago. It also doesn't remember the last tabs that I closed.

    My version of Opera is 76.0.4017.123

  • @tim-dandelion Known issue

  • @leocg Oh, sorry, I wrote the wrong version. Today I updated Opera to 76.0.4017.123 version and it works okay!

  • @avmon Just updated to: 76.0.4017.123. It is still bugged.

  • Little bit confusing, but seems to be fixed for me after a Windows update today...?

  • Opera version 76.0.4017.123 didn't fixed this annoying issue for me, how is this issue taking so long to get fixed? I've never had this issue before, it only started happening recently.

    So annoying.

    Yes, it is rather glaring. Hopefully, this coming week will resolve this issue. 🙂

  • I have this issue too since some time back. Really old tabs open instead of the recently closed one when doing Ctrl + Shift + T. Doesn't always happen. Seems more likely to happen if you've had the browser open for a long time and been doing lots of browsing.

    Edit: no, isn't fixed, problem still exists.

    Windows update has nothing to do with this.
    If you restart opera it may work properly for few minutes or hours but issue will come back.

  • Sorry for writing the translator
    This phenomenon occurs once you start closing the window.
    When a symptom occurs, "Reopen Tab" will not work, but "Reopen Window" will work to open the closed window. And if you close the window multiple times, "Reopen Window" works like "Reopen Tab". When you reopen the window you closed the first time, "Reopen Tab" works again.
    The bottom line is that "Reopen Tabs" only works in the window you opened the first time.

  • instead of bringing back my last closed tab, it opens a tab that ive closed a while ago

    was working fine until like yesterday or something

  • Wow, it's been two weeks and nobody thinks this issue should be fixed? 😲
    How can I revert Opera to version 75? I looked everywhere in the settings and can't find how to do it.

  • It's not just "not working" they have removed the option from the menu completely when right clicking on the tabs, "reopen last closed tab" was an option, now it doesn't even exist.

    Why has this been removed and replaced with this useless "Reopen last closed Window"

  • The problem affects all versions 76.* till the current latest version 76.0.4017.123.
    "Reopen last closed tab or window" does not work after version 75.*
    Before that i think it was called "Reopen last closed tab" only and it was working just fine. I've used it everyday.

    Now this function is not working properly and it is useless, as the other users already confirmed.
    It does not reopen tabs, instead it opens random previously closed windows - no tabs are opened at all.

  • Currently, the error seems to be fixed, so I don't think there is a big problem writing Opera.
    The biggest reason to use "Reopen Tab" is when you accidentally reopen a closed tab.
    But now when checking for errors, it has been changed to reopen the last closed window or tab instead of reopening the window first.
    My current version is 76.0.4017.123, so I'm not sure if the error is fixed.

    It's not fixed here, there's not even the option in the right click menu to reopen last closed tab that used to exist. So hardly fixed when the menu is now totally missing the option.

  • @jaknet Right click on the tab bar and you will see it. Or use the tabs search button.
