Does not open external links when default browser.

  • If I have a web address such as in gnote or another
    application clicking on this will open it in the default browser.
    This will work when the default browser is set to firefox, google-chrome, chromium, opera 12.16, or midori.

    When the default browser is set to opera-developer (Version:28.0.1750.11) it just opens a blank tab.

  • I tried to reproduce your problem. For me, it works in Opera stable (27). But when i tried it with opera-developer as default browser I also got a problem, but not exactly as you describe it. In opera-developer it opens, but not in an active tab. In opera stable though, it opens in an active tab.

  • Thanks for the feed back.
    Created a new Ubuntu user account and works there.
    Back in my usual account, renamed my ~/.config/opera-developerfolder, so as at next start opera-developer will load using the default config.
    Still just opens a blank tab.

    So opera-developer appears to be OK and it's some other setting in my normal user account.

  • Found what was wrong.
    I had made a custom launcher @ ~/.local/share/applications/opera-developer.desktop with an exec line.....
    Exec=opera-developer ....Seems the %U is needed.
    eg Exec=opera-developer %U

    When opera-developer is not open the link opens in background but if already open the new window opens in foreground.
    I'll work on that but at least it's opening.

  • @denser-ru wrong forum (this forum is Opera for Linux, not Windows) and wrong language (this area is English).

  • Sorry, i get this thread by googling. Really hurt this bug.
