Opera 12.18

  • 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.

  • I updated from 12.17 to 12.18 today. Lost all my bookmarks and custom shortcuts, and Opera made itself the default web browser without asking.

  • It sounds like it didn't like your existing profile and over-wrote it, or it couldn't find it for some reason, in which case it's probably still intact somewhere.
    I've never known that happen thank goodness!
    Did you install to the same folder?
    Do a search of the whole system for "bookmarks.adr", which is the Opera 12 bookmarks data file.
    How many versions does the search find?
    🙂

  • Opera 12.18 is a great news, only it is just a security update. I want to use Presto Opera on Twitter, but it still cannot display the Twitter screen properly.

    I installed Chrominium Opera for the second time today, but it is too slow to display bookmarks. I don't think I can use it. A big disappointment.

  • There was a typo in my previous comment:

    [incorrect] Chrominium

    [correct] Chromium

    By the way, it takes about 5 to 8 seconds for Chromium Opera to display my bookmarks, which number around from 5000 to 7000.

    I must say this is too slow.

  • I have a few thousand bookmarks and Opera 35 loads them instantly. Can you post you system specs?

    Also, you can edit posts within 30 minutes of posting by clicking the gear icon under your profile picture.

  • Below is the one I use:


    Machine: ThinkPad T43 (Model: 181734J)

    CPU: Intel Pentium M 1.73GHz

    Memory: 2GB RAM


    Maybe, my computer is too old and too slow.

    Also this forum sure has an editting option. I have just checked it out.

  • Opera will be slower to display bookmarks initially if Sync is enabled, since it has to check if they were changed on another device.

    I first read it as "Permium"😃
