Reinstalled Opera (no extensions and no adblocker and no Opera Sync) the game has the same behavior: it either stops and displayed "Server Error" or it loads completely and the game run in very slow motion.
RE Aljazeera's videos, I normally go to the bottom of their home page where there are a few videos along with a featured video. However, when I followed the link you gave there, I in fact saw several videos. With Flash enabled in Opera I was able to view them, but very, very choppy, useless really, but they were all there.
If BBC is falling back to something else, I would have to assume that it's not WebM because when I disable Flash in Opera, I always get a notification that I have to install Flash to view the video.
When I went to Opera's site to download the program, I noticed that it is definitely Ubuntu-oriented. I had to scrounge a bit to find the rpm version so I'm guessing that they have made a corporate decision to focus on Ubuntu and derivatives and possibly I will have to finally abandon Opera. It's not that I like Fedora better than Ubuntu, only that for the present Fedora is the only flavor of Linux that actually works right on my computer, at least of the 4 or 5 distros I've tried.
Is there some feature you would love see added to Opera browser on computer? Let us know!
Please could we have the option to hide the "Snapshot" button? I don't use this feature, because I basically use CTRL+WIN+S if I need a screen grab. I'd like to keep my browser pretty minimalist. It looks like we have quite a bit of flexibility in terms of hiding other buttons, but not the "Snapshot" button.
@zauberfritz Well, I just counted my history items again... First of all, there is a weird thing going on... I see the history up to a point (about 100-120 items), but if I open one or two grouped items in the history, suddenly more history items become available at the end... But again, limited... I counted about 300 with all grouped items expanded, and as before, every new tab I open, the last history item is removed, which means the number is fixed and I have reached the limit.
A "select all" and "delete selected" would be greatly appreciated, especially when you search the history for a specific site to remove. As you said, search all google.com, then select all, then delete all selected... It's weird to have to click the X one by one...
The thing is that, with this limit, history becomes partially useful, or partially useless, depending on the perspective...
A different want to do it where you get a blank, gray page:
Goto the URL opera://settings/startPage, enable "Hide search box", enable "Hide Speed Dial" and disable "Show news on the start page". Tweak any of the other settings you want there too. Then, goto the URL opera://settings/wallpapers and disable "Enable Wallpapers".
@leocg said in Is Opera VPN down?:
Opera is connecting to the VPN?
When I turn on VPN is connects and turns blue but when I try and go to any website the VPN turns amber and says "connecting" and "the VPN is unavailable at this time. Opera is resolving the problem"
I'm using Windows 7 in the UK so no problems with any blocking of VPN use.
No idea what's going on.
Funny, I use keyboard shortcuts all the time with my favorite programs yet haven't employed them for my browsing style whatsoever!
No wonder I was oblivious to it's actual function so excuse me while I up my surf game a tad.
Thank you @leocg.
when using Utube Broadcast Yourself, when I try to use the share option I get a blank white box....This box normally contains links to Facebook , Twitter and other social media sites...I have no problem using My Chrome or Firefox browserthis only occurs in Opera.Any idea why ???
@bodoooops Passwords can only be migrated through sync or by exporting and then importing them in the new installation.
History, bookmarks, speed dials, some settings can be migrated with sync or by making a backup of the profile folder.
See https://help.opera.com/en/latest/crashes-and-issues/#backup for more info.
