Problem is exactly as the title says. This isn't just one website but rather any site with a mailto link e.g. mailto:email@example.com What results is not just a new tab opening but rather one after another endlessly. I immediately open task manager and try to close the process but opera re-opens by itself, generating endless empty new tabs.
It appears that closing the opera task at the right timing seems to close it for good. I'm running the latest opera and this problem does not appear on any other browser.
This problem is quite bothersome as my university online portal has many mailto links which upon clicking, result in this mess. Does anyone else get this problem as well?
