To separate the bugs from the intended behaviour and the things we can fix from the things we can't fix, we need more precise feedback, so this is your opportunity to provide it!
Ideally this is the information we would like to have (if you can provide it all then great, if not please provide as much as you can):
- A screen shot demonstrating the issue (don't post in-line, a link to the image will do)
- The Opera Next version number (including minor build number) you are testing
- Any customisations you have made to Opera (e.g. is "Show Border" on or off, have you disabling close button on each tab, have you moved the tabs to the left or right, is "Show Menu Bar" enabled or disabled, etc.)
- Do you have a Theme installed (if so which Theme, ideally with a link to the Theme)
- What Window Manager (WM) and/or Desktop Environment (DE) you are running under. Including the version number of the WM/DE.
- The name and version number of your distro. This is important as your distro may have a customised or patched version of the WM/DE.
- If you have made any customisations to the WM/DE settings (e.g. disabling decorations within the WM itself)
- If you run tools that adjust Window behaviour (e.g. Devil's Pie)
- Do you have composting on or off (and if it is on, what video card drivers are you using).
You can get the name of the WM and compositing status by running Opera Next from the command line as follows (see below), though it will not tell you the WM version number:
Your distro's package manager can tell you the version number of the WM/DE. The settings you have selected you will need to remember yourself.
If you are unsure about the settings you have selected for Opera you could try starting with a blank/clean test profile. One way of doing this (which will work in most shells) is by starting Opera next from a terminal as follows:
opera-next -pd $(mktemp -td opera-test-profile.XXXXXX) &
Finally, a tip. The most robust method of running is with "Show Borders" enabled because you are then doing things the native way.
