Mine won't open after the update, either. Opera logo in launcher just bounces three times then automatically quits.

RE: Glitchy Sound/Audio on certain web sitesOpera for Mac
I also have this issue occasionally. It's been going on since I upgraded to OS X Yosemite (I was an early beta user, but static/white noise had continued even with current stable Yosemite).
Sometimes it does a very LOUD static noise when a Flash video first loads.. A fix I've found is to force quit coreaudiod using Activity Monitor and white noise/static issue goes away. Does this mean it's a Mac problem instead?
RE: Why can't change the keyword of default search engine?Opera for Mac
Every few months I come by and check on the status on this issue, only to find multiple threads about it with the same excuse. It's been going on for over a year already, but it seems Opera hasn't yet found a way to make it happen, which makes it seem there hasn't been an attempt to provide a fix, which is what makes it discouraging considering all other browsers let you add search engines. You'd think a Scandinavian company like Opera would be most interested in freedom to appeal to new users. Happy users recommend Opera, which brings you even more Google dollars. A few possible ideas:
a) make it so search engines have to be manually typed-in in settings - don't allow extensions/websites to add them.
b) have a section in the AddOns website where only pre-approved search engines can be added.
c) make it like unknown source extension installation - added search engines have to be manually approved in the search engine preference section.
d) if none of these ideas work, at the very least add more search engine options. at least one privacy-focused search engine (DuckDuckGo or Startpage, for example) would be welcome.
edit: hehe. nice to see lots of oldtimer My Opera era "server monkeys" around here.
Default custom search engineOpera for Windows
Hi everyone. I'm just wondering, am I able to make a custom search engine the default search engine? I can add a custom search engine just fine, but there's no "Make Default" button like there is for the bundled Google, Yahoo, and Bing search engines. Just wondering if it's a bug (using Opera Next 20 on a Mac) or if Opera is limiting customization compared to Google.
I want to use Startpage as my default search engine, and I have no troubles at all doing that on Google Chrome (or Firefox). They even get suggestions from it.
