@mmichel As said in the bug report page, if a problem is already being discussed in the forums or in the blog comments, then there should already have a bug report for it and there is no need to do another one.
Some not so bad development recently!
It appeared my mobile operator had got a subsidiary ISP! A new server just recently popped up in my Ookla tests: "Megafon"; amazing results!
I called them MO and asked, they told it was theirs, which I just mentioned:)
Cool, cosy or both? This morning's test:
@leocg I think this is funny, because there are MANY other folks that have complained about this issue, Google has NEVER addressed it....and funny because I may have to search for an extension that disables this.
Well...I hve tried every popup blocker offered, and nothing works, this is a function that obviously Google does not want to offer a choice to disable.
@joshl OK. I had assumed the d: drive was a physically different piece of hardware - I hadn't considered it as being a separate partition on the same physical drive as c:. The possibility of surface problems on a second physical drive was why I raised the earlier question. With both partitions instead living on the same drive, the odds are that if there aren't sector/drive issues on one partition, the same would be true for the other partition.
I certainly hope you can get yourself on the road to some meaningful healing finally... I assume it's still the arm issue?
@ytrewq This is an Update: Uninstalling and then reinstalling Opera removed the problem pinned-link.
Prior to uninstalling, I copied several key files from the opera installation (e.g. bookmarks, setting, extensions, etc) to another folder, then did a copy-replace of the same files in the new Opera installation to recover all setting, extensions and bookmarks. The operation was successful.
I have noticed that with the current version of Opera I can no longer drag-n-drop links to pin them to the pinned-Opera Icon in the Taskbar.
@leocg Nah, I wouldn't say Opera's blog is so popular, the beta/stable comments rarely reach 50-100 comments and even the dev reaches what max 200 comments? I've seen in pcgamer.com articles with 1200+ comments and never such a tragedy.
This is more like user interface desgin question. Generally actions, which do not change state, can (and are) processed in mousedown (and optionally up) - for example selecting control or selecting text or dragging something. Actions, which change state (of content), must be somehow proteced from accidental mousedown and they are generally processed in mouseup or click events. Actions, which change general/environmental state (navigating), are usualy processed in click or doubleclick events.
Some desktop programs and some browser pages do behave differently; I personally hate when page authors think they know better than windows UI team and break common logic.
In touch interfaces something can be different.
This is mostly windows logic, browsers tend to follow. You can create extension, hooking mousedown events and depend on element under mouse, force actions for click and doubleclick. Is there any such extension available, I have no clue.
