Downloads tab not opening automatically?
I've noticed in recent weeklies that the Downloads tab no longer seems to open automatically when a download is started.
Was that behaviour changed? I thought that was rather useful.
I can't find any setting to change the behaviour, which there was in Opera 12 IIRC.
Cheers, Dave.

@DaveH, defaults changed after introduction of Firefox style widget to track downloads (yeah, it still needs some more work), you can enable old behavior using Browser/TransferStartingAction.

@DaveH, well, option is not new, but it gained new value. ;-)

Thanks. I've got it set to open a new downloads tab now, and it's working fine.
