Now fixed (or at least back to the way it was) with 43.0.2442.52. Thanks Opera!

RE: change in response to pressed-and-held keyOpera for Mac
The latest version of Opera does not fix the issue (or seem to offer me a work-around). So I am, with regrets, going to switch to Firefox, at least to read and send email. I say "with regrets", because I have been a steady user of Opera for a long time and it has been the browser of choice that I recommended to others. But without an easy way of selecting alternate characters (I need Polish and French in some replies), this change in Opera is a real deficit.
change in response to pressed-and-held keyOpera for Mac
I recently updated to the latest version of Opera for my MacBook Pro. Now I am no longer able to use a useful Mac feature.
Before: when I press a key on the keyboard and held it, the alt-versions for the character (with diacritics, accents, alternate versions) popped up above the letter.
Now: when I press/hold a key, that character just repeats until I release the key.
Is there someway to go back to the earlier response to a held key?
