RE: Tab switch behaviorSuggestions and feature requests
What behavior were you trying to get it to do? If you were trying to make it so that it switches tabs in the tab strip order (instead of recently used order), there is a setting for that:
Opera Menu | Settings | Browser | Uncheck the box for 'Cycle tabs in most recently used Order'.
RE: Google cookie mismatchOpera for Mac
I've run into this issue before (for me it was caused by importing cookies from another browser into Opera).
Going to Preferences | Privacy and Security | Cookies | Click 'All cookies and site data' and delete any google/gmail cookies should sort it out.
Once you've deleted any google cookies, logging into gmail should create a new one that works properly.
In reality, there are only 5 primary engine lines currently being used for Windows browsers: all the variants within the KHTML/Webkit/Chromium/Blink lineage, Gecko, Trident, Presto, and EdgeHTML.
Firefox are going to abandon Gecko, aren't they?
So - what are we're gonna be left with then?
- Windows' Edge.
Firefox is not abandoning Gecko, and definitely aren't adopting chromium. They have an experimental new engine called Servo, but it's mainly for research purposes and they plan to integrate parts of it into gecko over time.
RE: Integrate RSS feeds reader that syncs between Opera browsersSuggestions and feature requests
They've hinted on the desktop team blog that it might be possible to add RSS feeds to news in the future (http://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2015/11/o35-initial-release/#comment-2356219206), but afaik currently no plans for integrating them with sync (but that would be a great feature I agree)
RE: Bookmarks Thumbnails change in url edit.Future releases
You can change the thumbnail it uses by clicking on the speed dial to open the web page, and then click the Heart menu on the Addressbar. From there you can use the left/right arrows to toggle through available thumbnail images for that site.
RE: Adding links to Speed Dial was changed for the worseOpera for Windows
The Speed Dial is now a Folder in the Bookmarks Manager. So (assuming you're talking about items that you already have bookmarked) in the Bookmarks Manager you can just Drag and Drop (or Copy and Paste) items into the Speed Dial folder to add them to the Speed Dial.
RE: Where's recently closed pages now?Future releases
I highly doubt they made the change 'to borrow code from chromium'. They did it because now that there's a tab menu, it makes sense from a UI perspective to have recently closed tabs there, but having the tab menu show a list of all closed tabs wouldn't really work well because it would result in a huge list that would push the 'open tabs' part of the tab menu really far down...
I really can't understand this design logic. They added a tab menu, which for me was completely unnecessary. This adds 0 additional functionality. I already have a tab bar which is far more convenient (for me) to navigate tabs (34 open now) then a long scroll down menu. I can easily visually identify the tab I want to move to and do so in a single click without any additional steps of opening a menu, scrolling to the page I want, and clicking again.
Then they moved a very functional component (recently closed tabs) to the unnecessary menu that I don't need and would rather not even have on my browser. In addition, as a result of this UI change, if I understand correctly from what has been posted here, they were forced to limit the functionality of the useful component. Nice trade off. Seems like a win/win. Insert sarcasm here.
You're ignoring the other functions of the tab menu... it also serves as a place to quickly access sync'd tabs from other devices, and it can also serve as a useful tab overflow when you have a ton of tabs open (when you have many tabs open, it's difficult to differentiate between tabs on the tab strip because they become very small and you can't see the titles, whereas on the tab menu you can see the full title of each tab, you can preview tabs without having to actually switch and potentially lose your place, and the list is scrollable).
The tab menu has legitimate, useful functionality. I can certainly see why people would want the ability to see a larger list of recently closed tabs, but I don't see any reason to throw the tab menu under the bus.
RE: Where's recently closed pages now?Future releases
How do you remove the "Tab Manager" icon from the browser. It serves no purpose to me other than to take up space and piss me off.
"When modifying existing UI, never add elements without giving the user the option to remove them" - One of the Principals of UX.
This can also be summed up with "People don't like change", "You can't please everyone, so don't force your changes on them", and "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
The tab menu Icon literally does not take up any 'usable' space... It's located under the min/max/close buttons where there was nothing else there anyway...
RE: Temporary Fix for Netflix 25 BetaFuture releases
I'll just use another browser for viewing netflix... And wait till Opera fixes this, updates...
Opera developer channel does have support for netflix html5/widevine cdm already so it's coming soon: http://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2015/07/opera-developer-32-0-1910-0-netflix-edition/
RE: Dear Opera staff, why are you so desperatly killing the best feature - the express panel?Future releases
And now you've removed even that checkbox!!! In order to add a site to my express panel, I have to: 1) bookmark page, 2) choose an image for it, 3) find the bookmark in my bookmarks folders, 4) manually move the bookmark into the express panel folder, 5) move it from the beginning of the tiles to the end (WHY does it appear in the beginning now?? I organize my panel so that my most necessary sites appear in the beginning)
You can still add bookmarks directly to the speed dial, You don't have to manually go into the bookmarks manager and drag the page into the speed dial folder. You can just add it directly to the speed dial folder from the folder dropdown on the heart menu: http://i.imgur.com/u88vXMh.jpg
The reason they removed the checkbox is that the speed dial now shows up in the folder dropdown on the heart menu (it didn't previously). This makes the add to speed dial checkbox very redundant, so it does make sense that it was removed.
IMO, the SD being treated as a folder is a much more streamlined approach.
RE: Speed Dials batch restoreSynchronization
Are you talking about copying a saved speed dial from one device to another? If so, you don't need to open each page and add them, all you need to do is copy and paste the speed dial entries from your other device, to your local speed dial folder (as you would if you were copying files/folders in a file browser)
Go to the bookmarks manager > Other Speed Dials > Open the dial of the device that you want to copy dials from > use ctrl + a to copy all the speed dial entries (or drag mouse to multi-select) > right click > copy (or ctrl + c), then once you've copied them, go to your local speed dial folder in the bookmarks manager and right click > paste (or ctrl + v).
RE: Will the future Opera's support NPAPI plugins??Future releases

RE: Opera Sync Improvements 1 2 3Synchronization
2): They've added the ability to remove devices from 'other speed dials' in opera 30 beta. In opera 30 you can right click on an other speed dial folder and there's an option to 'remove device folder'. You can also remove them in the current version of opera by using this extension: https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/bookmarks-by-the-side/ (note: for this addon to work you need the extensions sidebar enabled: opera://flags/#extension-sidebar)
3): It looks like they've added something like this in the latest opera dev channel builds, it now shows duplicate devices like so:
I agree it would be nice if they added additional distinction, such as the channel name. I'd also like the ability to remove old/duplicate sessions from tab sync manually like we can remove other speed dial folders in opera 30.
