@leocg This is totally uncorrelated correlation, but, now that I am not on my work VPN (same browser), it works. I am not even going to attempt to figure that one out.
I really appreciate you taking the time! I'll post again tomorrow if it borks again.
Watch the Desktop blog on blogs.opera.com/desktop or subscribe to their RSS feed. Naturally they will also have posts about Beta and Developer releases, but If you want a notification about Stable releases without actually downloading them that would seem to be the way to go.
I hope this is just an oversight that will be fixed, just 6 columns on a 32inch display looks ridiculous. I had 10 columns before, still do on Opera's current release version, with no need to scroll up and down. Please restore the facility to choose the number of columns, before 60 gets to the release stage. Customiseability used to be one the main features of Opera, please stop taking it away.
