RE: Widevine and OperaOpera for Linux
Hi guys, I have some good news
I just checked it, and the problem looks to be solved in the latest developer version
(68.0.3602.0 - "DNA-84335 [Linux] Widevine is not working due to changed path of libwidevinecdm.so"),
when you provide proper path to Widevine's folder in the "widevine_config.json" file, for example "/usr/lib/chromium-browser/WidevineCdm".
RE: Opera scroll bar to light!Opera for Windows
Hi @thebluncik @operabestbrowser @dustsucker, if you want, then you can check the "Rescroller" extension, in which you can "style each scroll bar element and their properties, including the sizes and colors of shadows and borders" (by default the scroll buttons are disabled, but you can enable them back under Buttons > Show scroll buttons). To install it in the Opera, you need first install one of the following extensions: "Extension source viewer", or "Download Chrome Extension".
As a really simple alternative to the above, you can try the "Win7 Scrollbars" extension, although it does not offer any options, it seems to fulfill its task, as the slider seems to be quite visible
Small notice: the extensions will not work on the internal pages of the Opera.
RE: Opera 65.0.3466.0 developer updateBlogs
Hi, I have a small request, please make the sidebar transparent (as it was in the past), having the current theme as a background, as it's shown below:
Also, if it's not so difficult (do not take much time and resources), please separate it from the Opera's menu panel, when the sidebar is enabled on the SD page or at all.

Привет @qq11q, попробуйте отключить его следующим образом: нажмите "Alt+P", чтобы перейти к настройкам, затем нажмите "Браузер", и прокрутите вниз до "Интерфейс пользователя", а затем снимите флажок слева от "Enable the search popup on selecting text" (у меня это на английском языке).

RE: Opera 66 initial release makes it easier to reopen closed tabs and to access extensionsBlogs
Hi @teknomobil, @vfbfan, @andrew84, @firuz-u7, @ohmanger, @james438, regarding the issues with the new video pop-out, you can still use the old pop-out implemented by the Opera. All you have to do, is to disable the two flags mentioned here by @kened, then restart the browser. Important is to disable both flags to avoid the issue with freezing/pausing videos in the pop-out.
New Opera stable 55Opera for computers
The Opera 55.0.2994.37 has been promoted to the stable channel
The change log, and the announcement: "Opera 55 offers better control of web pages, and more accessible bookmarks".
"It has been a big summer for us at Opera, and today we are excited to unveil the Opera 55.
The new stable build of our browser includes smarter layout for the settings page, expanded security badge, and page information pop-up for better page control, easier Chrome Web Store extension installation, and more accessible bookmarks.
Our busy, and exciting summer continued on July 27, when we became a listed company on the Nasdaq market, and enjoyed successful initial public offering. This was major milestone for our company, and one we could not have accomplished without the support and trust from you, our users. A week later, Opera launched as a snap in the Snap Store for Linux systems.
In the meantime, our desktop team has been hard at work to produce Opera 55 for you.
New layout of settings page, with dark theme support
Opera 55’s settings page has been restructured into four sections, to help you locate and adjust the browser’s features, security options, wallpapers and more. In addition, Opera’s dark theme will be applied to the settings page, if you have it enabled for the browser.
The four sections of the settings page include: Basic, Privacy and security, Features, and Browser.
Basic appears, when opening settings, and includes the most popular features and options in Opera. This section includes options for blocking ads, wallpapers, appearances, the sidebar, synchronization, search engines, changing your default browser, and browser startup options.
The remaining three sections are nested in Advanced. You can click Advanced in the left sidebar of the settings page, to reveal them.
Privacy and security includes preferences for privacy and security, and webRTC.
Features includes options for Opera’s VPN, battery saver, Instant Search, My Flow, the search pop-up, the video pop out, personal news, and Opera Turbo.
Finally, Browser includes options for the start page, user interface, languages, downloads, system, shortcuts, and for the reset of settings.
Use the search bar in the top-right corner of the settings page, if you are having trouble locating something.
The settings page can be opened by clicking the cogwheel icon in the left sidebar of the Opera’s start page. You can adjust common settings in Opera by opening Easy Setup in the top-right corner of the start page.
Better control of the pages you visit, with expanded badge pop-up menu
Security badges in the Opera provide important security, and page information about the current website, or web page you are viewing. They tell you, if a page has secured connection, what kind of certificate it has, and which content settings are used.
Opera 55 improves the page information pop-up, by providing all security, and content information about the page in one place, as well as offering shortcuts to Opera’s settings page for adjusting the page’s content settings. Now, for example, if you wish for a website to stop tracking your location, you can choose to have Opera always block location tracking from the pop-up, instead of going to the Settings.
To open the page information pop-up for the web page you are viewing, click the badge to the left of the web address in the address and search bar. The top of the pop-up will show, if the web page is on a secure or an insecure connection. Certificates and cookies used for this page can be viewed in detail by clicking their respective links in the pop-up.
You can adjust content settings for the entire website from the security badge pop-up. Click on the Site settings button, to open the content settings page, and customize how Opera will handle content such as: Flash, camera and microphone access, or ad blocking for the website.
Easy installation of Chrome extensions
Extensions from the Chrome Web Store are now easier to install on Opera 55. The next time you visit the extensions web store, you will be offered to click the Install Extension button, found at the top of the page. This will allow you to quickly add extensions from the store in Opera.
Adding Chrome extensions is simple. Browse Chrome’s catalogue for the extension you want, and click the + Add to Opera button. To complete the installation, you will then go to Opera’s extensions manager, and confirm the installation by clicking the install button.
Please note, that some extensions require APIs (applications programming interfaces), that are not fully supported in Opera. Follow through with the extension’s installation in Opera, to confirm its compatibility.
The Chrome Web Store icon will appear in the address and search bar, after you install the web store extension.
Easier access to your bookmarks
The bookmarks bar is turned on by default for Opera 55, so you can access your bookmarks at anytime, while browsing.
To add a web page to the bookmarks bar, click the heart icon on the right side of the address and search bar, and select Bookmarks Bar from the dropdown menu. You can later edit, open or delete the bookmark, by right-click or Ctrl+click on it, and opening its context menu.
There are also other ways to add a page to the bookmarks bar – in Settings, or Easy Setup.
If you have not enabled the bookmarks bar before, updating to Opera 55, there will be five suggested bookmarks for popular websites in your country. These bookmarks will not appear, and your original bookmarks will remain if you already have the bookmarks bar enabled.
You can disable the bookmarks bar in the Opera’s settings, in the bookmark bar’s context menu with Hide Bookmarks Bar, or in Easy Setup. You can edit or remove bookmarks in the bookmarks page, accessible from the heart icon in the sidebar of Opera’s start page."
The Chromium has been updated to version 68.0.3440.106.

Chromium is updated to version 80.0.3987.100.
"R2020 will be a series of releases throughout the year, with a focus on quality-of-life improvements. In the first release of the R2020 cycle, we have improved one of the most used and important parts of the web browser – tabs.
Tab organization redefined
Many of us know the frustration associated with having a disorganized browser, with simply too many tabs open. We might be neat freaks at home, but we still often end up with numerous open tabs in various windows or even different browsers, in an attempt to keep them organized.
According to a survey we conducted, 66 percent of people in the US use the same browser for work and personal browsing, and 65 percent reported, that they would like to keep their browser better-organized. We also found out, that almost 60 percent would like to group tabs according to the contexts they need them for, e.g. work, shopping, free time activities. Moreover, half of those surveyed stated, that a messy browser has a negative impact on their mood.
Our release today provides a whole array of solutions, that help you stay better organized while you browse.
The Workspaces lets you organize tabs according to different contexts you use them in
Right now, you can add up to 5 workspaces, name them, and designate their icons. This allows you to keep tabs: for work, free-time activity, or any other projects in separate tab groups called workspaces.
Workspace icons are quickly accessible at the top of the sidebar, with your active workspace's icon highlighted in blue, allowing you to easily spot it. And if you’d like to open a link in a different workspace, simply right-click it, and send it to the workspace of your choice. You can also move tabs between workspaces, using the tab context menu.
And how do you find a website you opened once, and which has gone missing in a sea of tabs? Simply use the Ctrl+Space shortcut, and type in a keyword.
See the tabs you’ve opened twice and remove duplicates
Opera has also added a nice little tool, that highlights duplicated tabs. When you hover your mouse over a tab, those with the same address are highlighted. This allows you to remove redundancy, both simplifying and speeding up your browsing.
The new visual tab-cycler
We frequently switch between many open tabs throughout a day of browsing. With Opera, this has just become significantly easier, as we updated the Tab-cycler to be horizontal, and more visually accessible.
You can bring up the Tab-cycler with the Ctrl+Tab shortcut, and use it to switch between tab thumbnails, without lifting your hands from your keyboard.
Easily adjust the sidebar to your needs
Another R2020 addition to the Opera browser is setup for the sidebar panel. Clicking the three-dot menu at the bottom of your sidebar, opens up this well-organized panel with a comfortable, and intuitive visual interface for managing elements in your sidebar.
It lets you edit, or remove any of the sidebar elements individually, like messengers, or features like My Flow or Crypto Wallet. It’s also where you can customize Workspaces by adding, removing, editing or hiding them.
Other elements in this setup include Opera's tools – browser management areas, like: History, Bookmarks and Extensions – which can be opened as full-page menus, by hovering over their label, and clicking the link icon.
Access useful extensions in the sidebar
The sidebar extensions, that you add to your browser are now readily available and visible from the same sidebar. With this update, we’ve decided to make extensions as accessible and easy to use, as your messengers, bookmarks, history and downloads. With one click, you can access: Twitter, Instagram, Google Translate, or any extension you wish.
When you install a sidebar extension, its icon will now appear at the bottom of your sidebar. Choose which extensions are visible by right-clicking your sidebar, or by selecting them in the setup panel. While there, click the add more button to visit the Opera's add-ons store.
Improved security with DNS over HTTPS (DoH)
When someone types a website address, like www.opera.com, the browser has to translate (resolve) it to an IP address, such as 126.96.36.199. This is done through a Domain Name System (DNS) resolver service, one of the oldest surviving parts of the Internet. By today’s standards, DNS is too trusting, as the data exchanged between the browser and the DNS is not encrypted. DoH is a way to make it more robust, by increasing user privacy and security. In simpler terms: it prevents eavesdropping, and manipulation of DNS data from the man-in-the-middle attacks, by using the HTTPS protocol to encrypt the data between the DoH client (Opera browser), and the DoH-based DNS resolver.
Opera now allows you to enable the DoH feature, and choose your DoH server from preselected list, or customize it to any DoH server, by using the browser’s settings.
Improved Video pop-out (picture in picture)
Following up on popular requests, we have also enhanced the Video pop-out feature in the browser. When you watch an online video, the pop-out lets you separate it into its own floating window, which stays on top of other windows. This popped-out video is easily resized and controlled, so you can keep it playing in the corner, for example while you browse.
This feature now allows even further control over the video, with added timer, back-to-tab button, as well as next-track button."
New Opera beta 51Future releases
The Opera 51.0.2830.2 has been promoted to the beta channel
"We’re happy to announce, that Opera 51 enters beta today. It offers improvements like quickly scroll to the top of the web page with just a click of the tab, import bookmarks added in bookmarks manager, improvements for video pop-out and tabs, new design of private mode and more.
Click the tab to scroll
Some sites lead us through an endless pit of web content such as our Facebook or Twitter feeds or a busy discussion board on Reddit. These kind of pages leave us with a long climb back to the top! It’s then another long descent down to continue where we were.
Now with one click on the tab you will be able to return you to the top of the page, and then with other single click jump back to where you were before.
Import bookmarks added in bookmarks manager
We’ve added imported bookmarks as a single folder there together with exported bookmarks, available in the expandable menu. This is another way for you to import your bookmarks from other web browsers. You can also import bookmarks and other settings through the Easy Setup menu found in the start page.
Collapsible lists of opened and closed tabs in tabs menu
This has been a frequently requested feature, especially for those who use the tabs menu often. Going to the tabs menu, found in the far-right of your tabs bar, you’ll find two collapsible lists for your open and recently closed tabs. This will declutter the right side of the browser after opening the tabs menu while also making it easier for you to locate a particular tab.
Another new feature for your tabs is to permanently keep tabs pinned no matter what restart option you have selected (open the start page, continue where I left off, or open a specific page or set of pages). Your pinned tabs will be restored after opening the browser for a new session.
We’ve updated the style of private mode on macOS to match the Windows design. Furthermore, we changed the static image to a new animation on all platforms. You can use the “Do not show again” checkbox at the bottom of the page to get rid of the animation and jump right to Speed Dial if you tend to open private windows a lot.
“Back to tab” button for video pop-out
With video pop-out you have possibility to browse the Internet while your favorite video plays in an adjustable window on top. Now, with the “Back to tab” link you have ability to go back to the tab playing the video. You can find it on the top of the popped out video by hovering your mouse over the title of the video.
Your video will continue playing in the pop-out window after clicking “Back to tab.”
We also updated style of the detach button on macOS.
Allow all sites to use Flash
Now it’s possible to run Flash on all sites without request. By default, Opera requires sites to ask first before allowing sites to run Flash.
You can enable running Flash on all sites without prior request in Settings (Preferences on macOS) > Websites > Flash.
Reset browser settings
Previously, resetting your Opera browser settings to its original state required a lengthy process of deleting the browser after saving preferences in a separate file. Opera 51 beta offers a single button to reset your browser settings in one click.
You can reset your browser to its original settings in Settings (Preferences on macOS) > Browser > “Reset browser settings…” button.
Resetting your browser will revert any custom search engines to the default ones, remove pinned tabs, disable extensions and will clear temporary data such as cookies. Your bookmarks, history and saved passwords will remain in place with the refreshed browser.
We now have a mechanism for backing up and restoring working profile preferences to help avoid the unintentional alterations of these settings. Whenever profile settings have been read successfully, we create a backup of the files involved.
When the files exist but can not be parsed, we use the backed up files instead. This means that Opera should still be usable after external applications or users that like the manual editing of JSON files have possibly made incorrect changes to Opera’s settings files.
- Opera for Mac now supports AppleScript, allowing you to create snippets for Alfred, or automate your workflow easily.
- Units converter recognizes dash symbol as a minus ex. −17.78 °C (wikipedia).
- [Mac] Reduce number of VTDecoderXPCService instances."
The Chromium has been updated to version 64.0.3282.15.
RE: Opera 67.0.3574.0 developer updateBlogs
@temkem I rechecked it more closely, and on developer you need to set "dns-over-https": 1, under "flags" section (no need to add "opera-doh": 1,) in the "Local State" file, also (if you don't have it added already from previous settings), you need to add the section as shown below:
save the changes, relaunch the Opera, and the Cloudflare's Secure DNS works by default (also under Linux).
Regarding eSNI, yes it's kinda working from some time in FF - if you enable it manually (it's disabled by default), and it is expected to be added in Chromium (so in the Opera, since it's based on it), but:
1. "eSNI is still an evolving standard, Firefox and Cloudflare just decided to implement a draft before the standard was finalized. Chrome will likely implement it as soon as it’s finalized." - the source link.
2. The current status on that matter from Chromium's team.
RE: Opera stable 70 - newsOpera for computers
Hi @iamkarthik, you can try to run the Opera with "--force-color-profile" switch, for example
The other accepted values can be e.g. "generic-rgb" or "color-spin-gamma24".
RE: New Opera developer 52Future releases
New update - Opera developer 52.0.2850.0
"Today’s developer update for Opera 52 includes some visual improvements for a few elements in our browser. We’ve added a new spinner animation, and improved color shading for the address bar.
New tab spinner
We would like to introduce a new tab loader animation. The tab spinner will blink, when connecting with the internet, and will spin around during the site loading state. Refresh some of your tabs to see how it looks now.
Color shading correction in the address bar dropdown
We defined new colors for the address bar dropdown to better blend with your choice of light, or dark theme for the browser. Take a look at the new colors for the highlighted cells backgrounds.
Most important fixes:
- Crash when running installer on Windows.
- Crash on startup affecting some users.
- Improve tick image for selected wallpaper.
- Tabs on Windows 7 may become transparent.
- Tabs in Tab Bar are invisible (black) until the cursor is placed on the tab."
Chromium is updated to version 65.0.3315.3.
