I see some more tweaks are in review there due to increased crashes from the fix. But it's progressing.

RE: Update to 56.0.3051.31 unreadable context windowsOpera for Linux
under opera settings advanced:
Use hardware acceleration when available
Is it off? That graphics hardware could be a challenge with hardware acceleration - it's from 2004 or so.
RE: Opera blocks everything when asking for keyringOpera for Linux
On MX Linux, you should install libpam-gnome-keyring if you don't have it.
It automatically unlocks the default keyring for desktop apps upon system sign in.
There is a good article there explaining the situation and procedure.
RE: Hardware acceleration breaks video on a pageOpera for Windows
ATI Radeon HD 4200 had that problem since around chromium v64. Just tried the --disable-direct-composition switch per your suggestion and it works! The cpu was pegged at 100% at full screen, when using no hardware acceleration. With it turned on and the command line switch, the cpu dropped to 50% or less at full screen. Worked on both opera 57 and vivaldi-snapshot. Seems good so far. Thanks!
On same box using debian, I never had any problems with same browsers. On Win10, I think the problem affects the entire ati HD 4000 series.
RE: Widevine and OperaOpera for Linux
As of chromium v67, libwidevinecdmadapter.so is obsolete.
But, when opera did work with widevine, it required a ua switch from command line startup switch (--user-agent) or an extension ua switcher. Nothing works as of late.
For Chromium, I added under /usr/lib/chromium: ln -s /opt/google/chrome/libwidevinecdm.so, just for good measure. No ua masking was needed. It worked fine with netflix.
So, they need to add the sites that use widevine to their ua masks, and fix the obsolete code.

ftp links are not secure because they can be redirected on isp equipment in some places in the world. Instead use:
The other http links should convert to https automatically
