    I believe 10.52 is the latest. Well SO is flickering just above its window, so I guess the tab-system is conflicting. Maybe put the button at the bottom instead and pop up there?

    Did you try moving the SO tab?

    To move the tab first make the Opera window smaller then Open PSO Tab then drag the Tab Window to where you want it if that the case because the OP was not quite clear.

    Vista HP 32bit
    Click anywhere in the Opera browser window and the tab vanishes for about 0.5 sec
    Not a big deal really, just as long as it would never signal/indicate an attack

    We had a couple users report this for Chrome as well - the tab is sometimes requiring a redraw when it detects the browser has moved into the foreground when being clicked.

    We're working on a workaround for this but it is surprisingly more of a task than it would seem :D

    Hmm
    If PrevX+SO can interpret a click as a redraw command, and please bear in mind that this behavior is constant for Opera here, then PrevX is looking at foreground/background status?

    I can get it to happen with IE8
    If I use the 'Restore Down' (middle-top-right) and then click anywhere in the top bar, ie above address bar the SO tab flickers off/on

    If I maximise Opera the SO tab doesn't show anyway
