Opera 12.18

  • Just disable

    opera:config#UserPrefs|AutocompleteOffDisablesWand
  • Just disable opera:config#UserPrefs|AutocompleteOffDisablesWand

    I have this one disabled yet Wand still won't work without the User JavaScript.

  • Yes that option is un-checked for me too and has been for a long time, but I still get sites that won't prompt for their login details to be saved.
    Thanks so much again @robkaw for the userjs, I will certainly implement it!
    I assume that the double forward slash at the start of the @include line needs to be removed to make the list active?

    No, the double slash is needed there. UserJS uses special markers in JS comments.

  • Ah thanks, notation like that it sometimes used to mark inactive comments, so I thought I'd better check.
    If I add multiple web addresses to the script, do they each go on a new line with their own @include at the start and double forward slash at the beginning?
    🙂

  • Yes.

  • Thank you!
    🙂

  • Glad I could help. 🆙

  • Sorry to be so demanding, but I suppose you haven't also got a fix for the typing of comments on YouTube not working properly?
    You can type fine, but the space bar doesn't work (shift+space does) and the number keys at the top of the keyboard don't work either, you have to use the ones on the right hand keypad.
    All can be worked around, but it is annoying!
    🙂

  • What weird problems you have, Dave.
    When did it start?

  • @rasz, @davehawley-

    Many thanks for your excellent suggestions about my problem - sorry I didn't reply sooner; I've not been back to the forum for a while. Got frustrated and ended up using IE9 (never used it before!) with Task Manager manually setting the program priority to High and running nothing else to force the thing to perform without stuttering.

    Firefox mis-rendered, and Vivaldi had too many modules to up the priority to stop it stuttering. Never heard of Pale Moon before - must take a squint!

    Again, many thanks and I will now see if I can get Opera (which I've used since version 3 & which never stutters when running video streams) to work again - IE9 takes forever to load ....

  • I suppose you haven't also got a fix for the typing of comments on YouTube not working properly?

    Sorry, no.

  • Palemoon is the old version of Firefox. I forget what changes it was people didn't like, but with any open source project if enough people don't like something they can just take a copy of the old code and develop it themselves. Hence there's Seamonkey (Mozilla back when it still included the mail client) and now Palemoon.

  • @joshl
    Not really sure when it started, I don't make comments on YouTube very often.
    I came to do it one day a few months ago, and there was the problem!
    If others aren't seeing it I need to investigate whether it's something to do with just my setup.

    @robkaw
    No problem, just thought I would ask!

    I presume it was 12.17 then?
    Well, knocking on wood :doh: no such problem with my 11 so far. Others might, not such "rejecting characters" of sorts... 😕

  • I first saw the problem in 12.17, yes.
    It's the same in 12.18 of course.
    I was using 12.17 for a long time of course, so it must have appeared while I was using it.
    As usual, YouTube/Google changed something at their end that wasn't compatible.
    If it's OK for you in Opera 11, I guess it's something in my setup.

  • Pasting when composing a tweet -- that worked until pretty recently. Any workaround?

  • Pasting using menu (which one?), shortcut or some other means?

  • Either Ctrl-V or right-click Paste. Neither does anything at all now when inside the tweet form.

  • You do get a menu that has Paste on it, though, so it isn't one of those WYSIWYG forms that Opera doesn't recognize as a text area.
