    writing from opera mini the forum regulary drops postings, and won't even allow to copy content for backup and repeat attempt when initial posting failed.

    loosing several lengthy posts this way is quite frustrating, and i won't retype comments no longer.

    Does it happens if you use another browser? Maybe it's a Mini issue and not a forum one.

      Is it not just the forum taking ages to post? It has always done that for me. You click ‘Post comment’ and it posts after a long pause.

          Agreed :-> And such a negative does not help us seeking workarounds. On a very slow connection (<15kb/s) @lat19 posting delays are minimal (tolerable).

            oops.

            in opera mini longtabbing on the active edit window opens a selection of options. have fun, y'all.

            the underlying problem persists as mini is still dropping comment submissions >nul.

            just happened again with this posting, lol.

              I can as well use this thread.

              For a second time, this morning the site loaded, but as I use a forums.opera.com tile not an https one, it should (and as a rule does) reload to https, then reload with autolog (as usual). Not autologging is rare and known, but now it's the second time I had this loop: the site autologs me, then immediately reloads back to not-logged, then logs me again, so on. If I try clicking a link - a board or anything, it starts loading it then reverts back to the start page with the loop.
              It only happened once before, more than a week ago, so it seems not a very persistent problem yet, especially that I just logged in orderly.

              I always leave Opera with Turbo on recently and start browsing this way. No similar issues recently. This morning it was - it had been - an update of my 360 Total Security AV, then I had some connection troubles and my ISP said it was my AV blocking something. Well, I turned it back as soon as I got my connection back - I can't browse unprotected; second time they tinkered, I lost it again, this time I didn't turn the AV on-off - I preferred to try turning my local net (what's English for that?) off and on again, which did the trick.
              That first time though when I had such a loop, I can't recall if there'd been any software update or not, positively I didn't lose my connection though, that time...

              No similar issues with any other sites I browse here with Opera 36 on my Windows XP SP3. Recently my ISP changed the way I connect to something without involving this thing in Windows' "Connections" folder - some macabre or something. If it might be relevant...
