I have another bug with the latest build of v47.
While using the web interface for Facebook (inbox) messages, tapping in the text box to type a message does not activate the keyboard. I rolled back to v46.3 and the problem is resolved.
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!

I also have a Nokia 8 but I cannot replicate your problem. I can have both Opera for Android and the Nokia camera open and running, repeatedly switch back and forth between the two and everything works just fine. No freezing or stuttering.
@miyukiwork After all those problematic versions of the last 2 years this is an excellent release. You 've managed to implement many suggestions from the community and made it aestheticaly and ergonomicaly solid. Congratulations!
I agree! Opera has been very responsive to user feedback and must be commended for that. Opera for Android has improved significantly. Things were so bad a year or two back I stuck with using v37 and tried out other mobile browsers. I'm now happy with Opera again.
I can see the early potential of Opera Touch.
I generally like the page rendering and prefer it to that of Opera for Android but it isn't perfect, some pages don't resize correctly, such as my Yahoo email and need to be sideways scrolled to read.
I get en error message when I try to enter my Facebook inbox. One of the advantages of Opera for Android was that it did not force direct you to install the Facebook Messenger app.
Although fanfare is made about "Flow" it is not something that I have a need for. Upon first use and skipping connecting to a desktop browser the app has said it will remind me again tomorrow. I hope this does not turn into an annoying spam/nag and can be totally disabled if the user wishes.
It's early days and V.1. I hope more functionality will be added as time goes on
While you're waiting for v.43 to appear on Google Play you can directly download it for manual installation from here http://www.opera.com/mobile/download/versions/
On the positive side the clickbait/spam/news feed can be disabled. Other than that it's still largely the same mess of a UI that came in after v.37
Opera please just stop what you are doing to Opera for Android and revert back to the user interface of v37. You are making an ugly mess of your browser and seem hell bent on doing so desptite constant and overwhelming user feedback.
We have a mutual best interest!
For resons best known to Opera, at device start up there are two permanently running background services for data mining and spam delivery purposes. They call it analytics and news. These services run regardless of whether you use the browser or not.
I agree. Opera really should have the dignity to abandon the new user interface as a failed experiment, worth a try but ultimately unsuccessful. It has no positive redeeming features at all, only negative.
Adobe officially discontinued support and development of mobile Flash in 2012.
The Linux options you are being given will likely be for desktop Flash. .tar.gz is a compression format and .rpm is a package installer for Linux systems.
There are however instructions on the Adobe help pages on how you can install the now old and abandoned mobile Flash onto an Android device. You should of course keep in mind any possible security weaknesses from installing such old and unmaintained software... especially Flash.
On the basis that Opera Mobile/Mini doesn't send any useful, meaningful or genuine Android notifiactions, just spam ones. You will not be missing anything by going into App settings and blocking all notifications from Opera.
Why are you going down this murky road Opera? It diminishes the credibility of your software.
I've had those blank tabs randomly occuring ever since that tab switcher was dumped on us, regardless of software version.
After a decade with Opera Mobile as my mobile browser of choice, I'm trying Firefox. The far from outstanding "improvements" Opera have been coming up with lately are a nuisance.
Have you enabled the Android developer options and adjusted the animation scale values?
I cannot say if this will fix your problem but I have noticed on my own phone that adjusting these values affects how long the scroll arrow buttons remain visible for.
... or simply use the website's favicon on the speed dial page.
I get a random and incoherent mix of favicons, the website's name from the url or the first letter of the websites name on my speed dial page. Very messy.
The power is in the option to choose. Good software provides comprehensive user options and choice... as well as doing what it's supposed to do properly!
