- It is possible to bypass restrictions on 'opera:' URLs to launch clickjacking attacks. (983)
- Certain types of HTTP responses and redirections can cause Opera to mistakenly give elevated privileges to remote web pages. (984)
- When using 'Delete Private Data' and selecting the option to 'Clear all email account passwords', the passwords are not deleted immediately and continue to be available until the browser is restarted. (986)
- In certain cases, the wrong executable is used to display a downloaded file in its folder. (985)
