Opera Mobile on Symbian S60 doesn't show some websites!

  • Hello,

    I have been using my good old Nokia E63 feature phone (Symbian S60 3rd OS) for some years now, and most of the time I have used Opera Mini for web browsing, which has worked so far reasonably well. Now I wanted to try out Opera Mobile (latest version 12.0.0.2258), which is a little slow on this old device but seems to render some websites better than Opera Mini.

    To my surprise, however, some quite common websites do not work at all with Opera Mobile! It takes a long time to load and finally an error message appears, saying that the address is currently not reachable (I cannot tell the exact English message as I am using the German version), not matter if I switch Opera Turbo on or off. WLAN or UMTS connection make no difference either.

    Examples are www.wikipedia.org and www.twitter.com. Of course these websites work with other browsers on the same device (internal Nokia browser, Opera Mini, UC Browser). At first I thought that there is some problem with https connections, but the site of my bank is working correctly.

    Any idea what's going wrong here with Opera Mobile?

    Thank you!

  • I have the same problem on my SE Vivaz. It's been an on and off issue over the past months. Usually reinstalling the application fixed it but now that's not a solution anymore. Opera Mini works fine, just can't stream any decent quality videos with it which is what I mainly used Opera Mobile for. Everything just looks better with it.
