Weird Lines in Full Screen YouTube videos..

So I noticed this quite a while ago, but thought it was just a smudge on my screen..
When watching videos on YouTube in full Screen, there are weird lines at the top of the screen, always in the exact same position.
I tested this with other Web Browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox and Vivaldi), and other video streaming sites (Disney+, Crunchyroll, and Hi-Dive), and the issue appears to be exclusive to YouTube with Opera GX.
Is this just me? Or is this happening to everyone? It's very minor, and not noticeable most of the time.. But just thought I'd ask..
I made a post on Reddit about this 3 days ago, but now another much longer line is now there as well.

Same issue here.
From my observations, it is caused by Opera pop-up options for Video pop-out and Lucid mode options at the top of video window. They never really hide when they roll back. In standard mode they are cover top portion of video with hard to notice lines, but remain at the same spot for full screen mode. Hence, when you turn Lucid mode one (Opera browser), the longer line turns blueish, which can be really annoying.
Apparently, you can try to fix it with turning of hardware acceleration (doesn´t work for me). From what I found, it can affect more likely devices with older hardware, Windows 10 and Linux OS. It has been addressed before, but never fixed. The same problem is discussed in this forum.
I think there is a chance, that Lucid mode will arrive to GX too, so it is the right time to address this issue.

@cascadehope I just found out a very simple way to "fix" it, which is by zooming in or out to 100% or 90% in the navigator. Usually this setting is automatically put to 110% but you can change it by simply doing Ctrl [+] or Ctrl [-].
I hope I could help you!
