Ok. So I guess now it's been integrated, and there's no way to disable it?

Disable Extra Mouse Gestures (On Links)Opera for Windows
Where did the flag opera://flags/#extra-mouse-gestures go? Why add the option then remove it?
I'd like to disable opening of links using mouse gestures. Too often it doesn't detect the link correctly. Case in point, the empty area at the top of Gmail opens random links from my speed dial.
RE: Opera won't start anymoreOpera for Windows
Try taking ownership or giving read/write privileges to your user folder.
Right click on the folder named as your username, click Properties > Security Tab.
Then user the following guide: http://tipsandtricksforum.com/thread-223.html
If that doesn't work, try install opera using right click > Run as Administrator.
RE: Lost keystrokes and mouse gesturesOpera for Linux
Have the same issue on Windows 10, also before on Win 8.1. Pretty sure it can't be browser specific now. Confirmed mouse gestures stop working after a while of medium usage, keyboard shortcuts also stop, and things work again after restarting Opera. It seems to have the additional effect of disabling typing in official Opera forum comment boxes, though not sure if it was related.
Keyboard shortcuts can be re-enabled without having to restart, just switching to another tab or clicking around fixes it.
Gestures can also be re-enabled without having to restart, I just don't know how, clicking/typing around somehow fixed it for me, but only has worked the one time (but I'm 100% sure on that, cos it happened while I was typing this).
Opera 29.0.1795.47 -- Extra Mouse Gestures & Speed DialOpera for Windows
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 www.google.com
- 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.
