Opera 10-11 problems

  • About vv. 10.x to 11.61 or .63 - correct me (I heard 11.64 was kinda more warped). Or o'k - before 12*:yuck:*

    Guys, using 11 some 63 it seems (for long I thought I had 11.61), today it was the second time I've got this notification so far: "Ошибка обновления" in a custom toolbar of mine (means I can't tell where it is technically - my layout is "weirdly" customised).
    Sorry it's in Russian. If I were certain it is about some updating, I'd knew and translated it (or even maybe didn't bother you here), but this Russian word might mean something else as well:

    1. renovation
    1. renewal

    I've no idea if something might be renewed here in Opera Classic, nor did I hear about any updating for kinda years here (everything's shut down, of course), so there's the question.

    It is in that toolbar and kinda looks like a button, and behaves like one on hover, but does nothing on clicking nor disappears...

  • My translator says Ошибка обновления means 'Update Error'. Why that appears where you describe is hard to say. During the years I used various Opera 10 and 11 versions, I never ran into anything like that kind of message in a toolbar. Is there some kind of button coding that lies behind the button that is perhaps trying to go out to a website for something? Also, perhaps there's something wrong with the button coding that causes Opera to be unable to update the button image - I don't know if it could then toss up an error message like that.

  • Probably a sync error message ...

  • Is there some kind of button coding that lies behind the button that is perhaps trying to go out to a website for something?

    No idea. I didn't code any buttons - I only rearranged the layout.
    In that [added] toolbar I placed the "Find in page" box to the left, and "show images" and "fit to width" buttons and zoom-box to the right.
    For years I can't remember seeing anything such unexpected there, or at least since my internet connection finally improved to a broadband.

    Probably a sync error message ...

    No idea either - I haven't ever applied nor ever remember registering to any synchronisation. Apart that I had a couple of bookmarks stored on that MyOpera page (which seem to still exist under another directory and with different properties).

  • Have you tried deleting or removing the toolbar, reinstating it, and re-adding the buttons back to it from the Menu>Tools>Appearance>Buttons listing? I'm thinking along the lines that something in the custom toolbar file may have gotten corrupted.

  • :lol:

    1. I did the browser so long ago that now it should be considered a hell of a job to re-tinker🙂
    2. So long as - should I knock-knock on wood? 🙂 there seems to emerge no trouble... :whistle:
      Well, I just wondered if anybody of you could know - or guess - something*:rolleyes:*
      😉

    Like what?

    <hr>

    Ah, yeah - now I see for sure: the remaining area there is used to display link destinations and tooltips on hover*****:)
    I wasn't sure of that when posting last time from Firefox.

    *****That is displayed aligned to the left - next to the "Find in page" box, while the 'button' in question appeared to the right - left next to the "show images" one.

    PS: I forgot about the sidepanel button placed extreme to the left there - before the "Find in page" box. 🙂

  • There is a status field there, it is supposed to let you know if a browser update is available.

  • Thanks, Steve.

    That's I wonder - why the heck would it happen anyway?
    That "suggested update" of the Olde Opera to nuOpera that was discussed kinda long ago - happened.. well - long ago. So...
    While the "button" only started appearing rather short ago - September now? Can't remember noticing it earlier - but anyway - now why?
    Anybody heard of any updates to Presto recently?🙂 Opera 13?😄

  • Nope, no 13. Not even a resumption of work on 12.50 (the original 12.50 became 12.10).

  • Guys, using 11 some 63 it seems (for long I thought I had 11.61)...

    It is .61.
    I was right from the beginning. Got some misleading data then. Gosh!

    Bookmarks you can change in the Bookmarks Manager or sidebar panel directly. In Manage Bookmarks, you'll see a File button in the toolbar with items named Open, Save, Save as HTML, Export, etc. Save not only saves the file where you choose with the name you choose, it also sets Hot List File Ver2 to that address, so Opera continues to save changes to that file. Likewise Open not only opens the file you indicate, it sets that as the file to be used. In the Bookmarks panel, the same menu is a submenu of the context menu. It's only things like Contacts and Notes where you'd have to use the Preferences Editor (and physically copy the file there yourself).

    Right? O.O

  • Absolutely. In fact, we used to have people accidentally change their bookmarks file to one on their desktop (which they were making as a backup or to transfer to another system) and then Opera would get confused when they moved or deleted the file. We'd have to guide them through finding their original and then setting Opera to use it.

  • Oh my! Me-me-me!
    Yes, I had that trouble. For long now my actual bookmarks are in a weird location.
    Should I move that file back to the profile folder, rename it and "Open"?
    Or can I just Save from the browser to a - new? - file in the folder?
    😕

  • Save works fine, as long as you type the full address. Remember, your profile is inside a folder that is hidden by Windows, thus the folder will not be displayed in the list for you to pick it. Copy the name of your profile folder from About Opera and paste it into the Save dialog. (The file probably exists but is out of date, so if it asks if you want to overwrite the old file say Yes.)

  • "Type full address"? I thought it would be a pop-up dialogue like usual Windows stuff... 😕

    Yes, I know where the folder is. I backed it up with the actual file now to that instead of the "outdated" one.
    Well, that time I lost it I 'lost' some bookmarks to it. Can I recombine the two - supposed I can determine which outdated one contains them?

  • You could import one to combine it, but import does not remove duplicates in Presto. Alternatively, export only the ones not in the other file then import just those (after switching files) ... otherwise use a text editor.

  • Text editor, huh?
    Thanks.
    Truth, I don't so much miss those bookmarks, but I think I preserve all those back-ups since time immemoria. How to find the one? Perhaps it might be the very file that is in the folder.

    Well, it's kinda messy in there - both. A scroodge myself, saving pages then keeping them forever not even using most 😛
