Sudden jump to top of the page when asynchronous image loads.

  • Hi

    I'm using Opera for Android but it is barely usable because of extremely annoying bug:
    When I open page, scroll down to read some text and then some image loads asynchronously then scroll position suddenly resets to top of the page.

    This usually happens on adds, for example check - it has add as 5th image from top. When page opens quickly scroll down to some article and Opera will suddenly jump to top of the page when add loads.

    How can I prevent Opera from behaving like this?
    If there is no quick fix how can I upload adds blacklist?
    That would also fix scroll position going crazy in most cases, because adds loads later than page images.

  • Yes indeed! There used to be an option to use place holders for images. They appeared in a mixed color and the layout built up more stable.

  • Images can and do load off-screen, it's some sort of script which results in the jump.

    I know sometimes (it's in a rotation) there's an ad in the right column on Slashdot half-way down the page which does that on desktop Opera. Once the (video) ad loads, the browser jumps down so that ad is in view ... extremely annoying.

  • No problem for me, some twisted flags on my side though.
