[Solved]The combined Address Search bar is no longer working

64 Bit Windows 7
If I switch my desktop theme to Aero (which is needed to keep videos from tearing (true idiocy on Microsoft's part, BTW), then the problem manifests.
Switching back does not fix it. Only thing that does fix it is exceptionally stupid. I have to shut down and restart Opera.
There. You guys have what you need to replicate the bug.

To get rid of something, which is a feature, may be a workaround, but no solution. BTW: I dont have a combined bar, but the problem. I also dont have an AERO theme, but have the problem. I am already testing other browser like Vivaldi and Brave.

This bug has now been fixed in Opera 81 Developer.
DNA-95481 Address bar disabled after changing win7 visual effects.
Do you know about how long it usually takes for a developer version to become public?

Let's count. Chromium and Opera has 4-week release cycle now. Opera 81 Developer will be in beta very soon, possibly next week. Plus 4 weeks per cycle.
Perhaps Opera 81 will become Stable in 5 weeks, maybe a little longer.
But the developers can fix the bug for the 80th version earlier.
For now you can check if this bug is fixed in the Developer version yourself using Opera developer (Portable version).
Better check, because this bug was reproduced for me only after changing the theme in Win 7, but it did not appear if this was not done. Perhaps these are 2 different bugs with similar symptoms.
I have no longer a bug with the address bar in Opera 81 Developer. Win 7x64.
