Trouble typing on Opera 24 Stable

  • Ive been using Opera for YEARS & it was working fine until O24 (Stable). FOr some reason I have difficulty typing in the address bar, Ive had to resort to using IE11 to search & do most typing related things. Ive also experienced this on at times I can't type in ANY sort of text box: Address bar, this message box, anything, it won't work.

    Did I mess up a setting?
    What's going on?

    Thank you very much.

    Here is my PC/Browser info:

    Version information

    Version: 24.0.1558.64 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 8.1 64-bit (WoW64)
    Browser identification

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/37.0.2062.122 Safari/537.36 OPR/24.0.1558.64

  • Ok, I solved my problem: I went into "opera://flags/" & disabled "Experimental text input focus manager." Now I'm having no issues
