Switch to nth tab shortcut problem

  • Since one of the most recent updates, the shortcuts for switching to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, ... tab don't work as they should anymore.
    When pressing the shortcut, rather than switching to the respective tab in the current workspace, instead the number now relates to the chronological order of when each tab was created, whereas before the update it related to the order of the tabs in the tab bar.
    To clarify: before the update the shortcut for switching to the 1st tab always switched to the leftmost tab in each workspace, shortcut for the 2nd tab switched to the one right next to it and so forth.
    Now the shortcut for switching to the 1st tab instead switches to the oldest tab that was chronologically created in Opera (and it only works if said tab is in the current workspace when pressing the shortcut).
    The same is also true when setting a shortcut for switching to the last tab, which now switches to the last tab that was chronologically created (and again, only if said tab is in the current workspace), instead of the rightmost tab of the current worspace, as it probably should.
    This behaviour does not feel like it's intended at all and makes the shortcuts absolutely useless. Please fix it.

  • What version of Opera?

  • Happens at least in 77.0.4054.146 and 77.0.4054.172

  • @panicpug Thanks for the clarification. I can confirm and filed bug DNA-94308 for it. I'll keep you posted.
