Opera 29.0.1795.47 -- Extra Mouse Gestures & Speed Dial

  • Hi,

    By default, opera://flags/#extra-mouse-gestures is enabled, which activates the following 3 gestures:

    • Open link in a new tab (Down)
    • Open link in a new window (Shift + Down)
    • Open link in a new background tab (Ctrl + Down or Down + Up)

    When I close a tab, and use the Down gesture to create a new tab, it's as if the page I closed is still there, and if I use the Down gesture in an area where the closed page had a link, it would open that link. Easy way to reproduce:

    • Open
    • Open a new tab (Down gesture)
    • Close the new tab (Down Right gesture)
    • Open a new tab over a blank area on the Google page, but where a speed dial would be (Down gesture)

    It should open the Speed Dial link, whichever was in the area you performed the mouse gesture.

    Is it just me or does it happen to others? Thanks.
