General Opera One Feedback Topic

I have used Opera for 20+ years
This new incarnation removed my all the Speed dial links, all the book marks and all the saved passwords.
I'm not going to waste hours trying to find a work around or reinstalling all my bookmarks and passwords.
Opera used to be was great. As with so many 'improvements' the new improved version might be full of bells and whistles but doesn't do the simple job of being a reliable browser.

Ever since Opera upgraded automatically to the new stuff there are a lot of issues.
Everything is sluggish and it seems that every time it tries to load a page it does it interrogating the address multiple times. How did I figure this out? When I try to browse on commercial sites with various levels of protection, like eBay, they log me out with the message you are being logged out since the activity from your side mimics a bot.

I see and hear that intro every time I start the browser. This is ridiculous. This so-called "feature" even more disturbing than "lucid mode" (this notification pop-ups every time as well) or "tab islands" (last one is quite handy though).
I couldn't disable it via flag #opera-one-introduction. It just gets enabled again when I choose "disable" and restart browser.
Updates in the last year or two are getting worse and worse, and though Opera has some crucial features for me like tabs organizing, but my plans are all about to use something else. After about a decade of using Opera, lol.

did you mess up this browser so badly?
You shipped the product (in a big rush I suppose) that nobody asked for, and to make it worse, it has bug on bug on bug...
I have a suggestion. Take Opera One and put it in the trash, and bring back normal Opera. I think a lot of people would appreciate that.
Whoever like the idea, please give it a thumbs up - maybe they would notice.

I've yet to see anything that's causing me to complain.
I'm running it on openSuse Tumbleweed (Linux), as a Flatpak.
Granted, Opera is one of four browsers that I actively use, and I use it about 10-20% of my total browser time.
And I only use it for "minor" stuff, like checking on various forums. Also, I don't have all the fancy features and crazy UI stuff enabled.
However, and don't get me rwong - I see all the complaints out here (I've assisted with some), so I know there are MANY issues. Anyway, I'm not here to thumbs up, but I'm shocked at all the issues - issues I don't experience. Maybe 'cause I'm on Linux

Hello, this post is directed at any staff at Opera who will be able to take my points into account and act upon them, as the "Other" box's character limit on the feedback prompt it gave me was too short for everything I wanted to say. First off, the Opera loading animation and start up sound that's only supposed to play the first time you load up kept appearing, which was very annoying as I like to quickly open my browser to search something, then close it again once I'm done. The loud start up sound blasting in my ears also was not pleasant. So I Googled a solution to this, and firstly people were saying that it could be turned off in flags, however this did not work for me, another solution suggested was to delete "opera_gx_splash.exe" in the installation files. This worked, but was a bit tedious and didn't cause for a terrific first impression of the browser, as well as supposedly I will have to keep deleting this file after every Opera update. On top of that, ad block doesn't work as well as other extensions on Chrome (misses a few ads, and can't right click and manually add it to the adblock either unlike in the extension I used). Talking about extensions, the "Opera addons" webpage has a bit of an outdated design and not being the most user friendly, as well as not showing all the extensions that are in the Chrome web store, which Opera doesn't make it too convenient to get to. In addition, webpages sometimes get stuck and won't let me scroll for a few seconds. Furthermore, I don't like how the close button isn't fully top right because to close my programs I usually just flick my mouse top right and click, now I have to purposefully move to the close button which takes more effort and is slower, mild nuisance. Same goes for tabs, can't drag them around if you click at the very top of the screen, have to click in the middle of the tab. Dragging tabs to pop them out into a different window also feels clunky, and won't fullscreen if you drag them to the top of the screen unlike in Chrome. Not being able to right click an image and search with Google is also a feature I use often which is helpful for finding image sources, not sure why this isn't in Opera as most other browsers besides just Chrome also have this feature... It's also a shame bookmarks and history don't transfer over to chrome on my phone, but I understand why that would be the case. I could always download Opera on my phone, however I don't browse on my phone too often so that would be more effort than it's worth to transfer everything over there as well. Apart from that, I do like a few of the features you have vs other browsers, just not quite as reliable and sturdy as Chrome feels. If you fix these problems I've brought up, by either changing how it currently works or adding a setting to be able to change it at least, I will switch back to Opera. However for now, I will be turning back to good ol' Chrome! Thanks for reading, I hope you can act upon these matters.

OperaDeveloper does not start, after the last update. No old solution, like taking over the rights to the profile folder; no reinstallation; no installation on another partition... And the truth? to waste time with configurations, with versions as unstable as the "stable" one, I prefer to play with Vivaldi. Although I'll stick with Firefox.
With Opera stable, when it's not for one, it's for another... Now they don't download applications from the Chrome Webstore.
Some pages do not show embedded pdf. However other chromiun and non-chromiun browsers do. Even the Japanese Sleipnir, a true machine, does not have as many bugs as Opera.
In a couple of years, I'll be back... and I'll be millions.
For now keep experimenting, fixing something and messing up twice as much.
I'm still with the faithful and safe Firefox and Vivaldi to play with.

I would like to know why with the last update all tabs are almost impossible to control. I have many tabs opened on the top because I need them for reference, after the new update the tabs are difficult to manage , open keep ordered. They are too much near each other like a sandwich!
Also the "AI" suggestion is rather useless and make things complicated , while before this browser was just the best.
more than update looks like a personal stylization and is not functional
Semplicity and usability should be a must!
Also the "My Flow" before has a nice animation telling you when clicking was "doing" something , while now is just a dead button.
very bad, if continue like this will change the browser, after many years now it is unusable almost. The new Tabs management absolutely sucks sorry.

Just Stop. You still don't have a "recovery previous windows" button like moz'ila so Stop This. Everytime I have to re do everything and remember my tabs again for some update I didn't ask. Do better.

I have been using Opera for as long as I can remember (I remember Opera with a banner ad). Unfortunately, recent changes in this browser forced me to change browsers (hopefully temporarily). I'm not mentioning all the fantastic functionalities that I often used. Releasing a product in a stable version that causes major problems for many people is terrible and frivolous.
My objective problems with the new interface:
- The icons in the sidebar look terrible, the background on the dark theme is discouraging
- Close button, minimize button, etc. they are rounded and therefore inactive in the very corner of the screen. I have to aim to close the browser
- For a long time (stable version!!) the scroll button on tabs did not work
- For a long period (stable version!!) the space above the tab was inactive. The option in the menu did not work. Actually, it probably still doesn't work, the advantage is that you don't have to aim at the tabs.
- Rounding everything and the spacing associated with it.
- Moving tabs between screens is a pain! Every other browser does it smoothly and quickly. Here you have to wait and it won't go where you want. Additionally, it opens new windows...
- The new tab button is too small - you have to aim.
- Splashscreen? I think he disappeared?
- Will it be possible to change any interface element?
- Is there a roadmap for the upcoming functionalities in Opera?
- The icons in the sidebar look terrible, the background on the dark theme is discouraging

you have to aim
I don't see much advantages from this 'modular' design. I see the opposite - habitual daily experience is spoiled, the things that worked fine are harder to use now.
Moving tabs between screens is a pain!
I still stay on pre-One version, my nerves are dearer to me

Every single update opera squishes my tabs into an unreadable and unclickable mess.. I have to go to chrome//flags and enable tab Scrolling and relaunch. but now with this Opera One update Tab Scrolling doesn't even work! Why? Why do you insist on making my browsing experience painful. I just want to be able to read and click on the tabs i want.

I recently received the update to version 102.0.4880.56 of Opera One which has introduced many, MANY issues that make using the browser a challenge, to put it lightly. Let's start off with system specs:
- Windows 10 Pro 22H2 64-bit
- Intel Core i9-10900K
- 32 GB RAM
Post update, where all of the Speed Dial bookmarks became rounded (I don't think it was the version I have now and that some may not have automatically installed since then), performance of Opera One has become miserable. Let's list a few issues:
- When closing the last tab of a window, the window no longer closes and it continues to open a new tab.
- When watching a video, the framerate is massively below even 30 FPS unless the window is made smaller (or full screen mode is activated).
- The spacing on right click menus is atrocious.
These are just a few examples that I have experienced thus far, besides the fact that performance is generally much slower when loading any pages, including just the Speed Dial itself, not to mention that when popping out a tab, sometimes the entire browser will crash (that was present before this update). I pray that a hot fix (or rollback) is in process, because if these issues aren't fixed, I might have to switch web browsers just to be able to have a standard level of performance again.
Additional Notes: I fresh reinstalled Opera One (unintentionally, which was frustrating, but at least I could test). Issues still present with no extensions. Lucid Mode never active (performance has never been good with it active).
