@rekrul Your Opera36 error message implies these redirections may be caused by the site server attempting to use an obsolete RC4 protocol, which causes auto-redirection in the browsers to the http site in all 6 browsers I tried, but which may not perform that auto-redirecting in the Opera36 version (or at least, in your installation of it).
I just nuked my installation of Opera and re-installed it. No change.
And can I just say that I REALLY appreciate the fact that Opera doesn't give you any options while installing, like where to install it to, what Start menu group to place it in, whether you want Opera to be your default browser and whether or not you want HTML files associated with it. /s
I don't see any visible reCAPTCHA intercepts on this system when requesting a download, although the site occasionally does interject porn pop-up pages as I noted earlier when attempting a non-porn download. There's definitely some bait-and-switch attempts going on when selecting at least some of the site's downloads.
Yes, it occasionally pops up ads for adult games. I guess that's the nature of such sites. To be honest I haven't checked it in a while and it appears that some of the downloads have direct links (which may cause a popup the first time they're clicked. Some of the downloads there do have reCAPTCHA challenges though. Back before reCPATCHA stopped working in the other browsers, pretty much everything on the site required it. If a download has a reCAPTCHA, it shows up as soon as you click the button to show the download links. For example, most of the PSP minis.
Yes, I know what you'll probably say about those, I'm just using it as an example.
The https://newcomic.info/ site shows an "Insecure connection" badge in IE, Edge, Vivaldi, Otter, Opera58, and Opera12... which under examination is likely caused by the browsers trapping the https site page code trying to make callouts to two http URL addresses (which would thus involve unencrypted/insecure data transfer).
I just want to know why my copy of Opera 36 seems to be the odd one out among all the browsers in that it's the only one that can't access these sites at all.
Is Opera still your default browser on that system?
If you open Opera directly from its icon, does it start up normally, and what version is it?
When you open Opera directly, how many tabs does it open initially?
We were discussing #2 recently - a user wanted to restyle the Google results page (using Stylish), he needed to allow the extension on search results or it wouldn't work.
Item 3 is obvious - does the extension also apply to files saved on your computer or only to sites on the web?
That thread points to https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/czech-dictionary-pack-ceske-slovniky-cs-cz, but you can search the site for a Norwegian one to see if it works. https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/norwegian-dictionaries-spell-checker-thesaurus-and-hyphenation might be it, but didn't check.
Looking through your older posts (including the linked thread), I didn't see that you ever tried to disable hardware acceleration just to test how it behaves in Opera then. Not suggesting that as a solution, but a test. You can do this under opera://settings/system and then restart Opera. Or, you can launch Opera from the command line with the --disable-gpu switch too/instead. See https://stackoverflow.com/a/1308947/1697 if needed for doing that on Mac.
Are these still your systems?
You need a 500+ Hz mouse
What mouse do you have btw?
and the desktop should actually be running at 240 fps behind Opera
Did you mean something specific about the desktop should be running at 240 other than the monitor refresh rate being set and showing as so in the display settings for the OS?
Yes, I've overclocked the HDMI port (headless display which is always on just for audio) going to my AV receiver to 120/144 Hz for my 240 and 144 Hz monitors respectively. I didn't have stuttering due to the mismatch
Could you expand on this? How did you overclock it?
I don't use the two monitors together, but only either one monitor and the AVR.
Do both HDMI connections run from the GPU through the AVR where you switch inputs on the AVR to select which monitor? If so, have you tried connecting the gpu to the monitor directly to bypass the receiver altogether? Even if other browsers work fine with it, it'd be interesting to see if makes a difference for Opera.
Is there any way you can make a high-fps video that shows the difference between Chrome and Opera for example so there's a visual of the problem?
I don't think there is a way to set media files to be downloaded automatically when you click on a link to them, you will need to do it manually by right clicking on the link or using the download feature in the player.
