I always thought Opera had dropped support or fell behind the times. Something of that nature. I downloaded the DEB and it installed without a glitch, loaded up fine. Haven't really used it much but seems fine. Is there something I'm missing about it that may conflict with puppy?

Like I said, I was under the impression that they were no longer updating it.

The 64-bit version is now Opera-48 so the 32-bit is now frozen at -45 and won't be updated...

Can opera play video at http://cnn.com/video?
If not you may want to add a more capable ffmpeg codecs lib than the one opera devs are allowed to package. Get it from the herecura repo https://repo.herecura.eu/herecura/i686/ (or .../x86_64/ for 64-bit opera).
These are the steps I take for x86_64; adapt for i686:

mkdir usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-developer/lib_extra
rox usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-developer/lib_extra
Extract libffmpeg.so from the herecura package to this subfolder.

PostPosted: Sun 07 Jan 2018, 16:34    Post subject: window position / size issue  

With Opera v49 or newer I encountered a window position / size issue. Even with window maximized, going full screen (F11) or using video full-screen option would be a 2 step process, first Opera returns to default window size. It then takes another press of F11 or clicking video controls to finally get to full-screen.

Adding the following to the bottom of rc.xml resolved the problem. Previously using the maximized was suffice, but no longer. This obviously requires your distro to use openbox. Change height / width to match your resolution.

/etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml
Code:
<application name="Opera">
    <desktop>1</desktop>
    <decor>no</decor>
    <maximized>no</maximized>
    <size>
       <width>1024</width>
       <height>768</height>
    </size>
  </application>
  </applications>
</openbox_config>
