Opera 12.18

  • Well I think what's being discussed here is probably relevant to most recent versions of Presto Opera, not just 12.18.

    I see the thread's title though.
    I was asking because I'm gonna part with Windows altogether or at least for a long while. IF they drop the XP support.

  • Off-topic for this thread, but Opera have already dropped XP (and Vista) support for their latest browsers.
    Opera 36 is the last one that will work on XP or Vista.
    This has been forced upon them (they say) because the Chromium project has dropped support.
    I can't imagine that Presto Opera won't always work on XP though.
    😞

  • Is there any hope for linux version of 12.18? Or is there possibility of taking these new security protocols from windows version and use it with 12.16 on linux (as a library or sth)?
    More and more pages are using https these days and I can't open them...

  • Hmm, now one of the lightest, simplest sites is misbehaving. Wikepedia, not responding or slows down browser. What gives?

    I have problems with a site here and there but they were heavy, NYPOST for example. But never expected problems with wikepedia

  • It's not been so light since going https. That slowed it down, but other than that, I haven't noticed anything unusual. Maybe you hit it when it was having problems.

    The home page loads fine, then if I click on a link its horrible. Have to close it to get the browser to behave normally again

    You may ask on the *nix forum, you may have better luck there.

  • I did ask the developers if they were planning a Linux release; they said they had more Windows users (especially on XP) and weren't going to do Linux. Mind you, since they never released a Linux version of the standalone Opera Mail, I suspect there are more Linux users than they think.

  • I suspect there are more Linux users than they think.

    They may not able anymore to compile and debug Presto's source code for Linux platform.

  • An update for FB CSS:

    ._2t-d, ._2t-e {
        display: flex;
    }
    
    ._2t-e, ._50tm {
        flex: 1;
    }
  • Thank you, you're a genius!
    :yes:

  • Another FB CSS update:

    ._5fo3 {
        display: flex;
    }
    
    ._2btj {
        flex: 1;
    }
  • Thanks as always, but it doesn't seem to be working for me.
    The toolbar buttons are on the left instead of on the right, with the search field underneath them instead of to the left of them.
    I take it the code above should replace the previous code, not be added to it?

    Sorry, but I can't help - I don't know what's the problem because it works fine for me. Maybe it's some extension or wrong CSS file?

    I take it the code above should replace the previous code, not be added to it?

    Yes, the code is a complete CSS file.

  • Hmmm, very strange.
    I wasn't actually aware there was anything wrong with the Facebook page display anyway in 12.18 at the moment (I actually usually view it in Slimjet now as it's faster and has a great video downloader!)
    Anyway, I've put the original CSS you posted on June 30th back, an everything seems to be fine, which it isn't with the new version.
    😕

  • It might be that FB serves changes to users in one region later than to users in another region, so maybe it'll break for you only after a while. We'll see...

  • Yes, I'll keep an eye out!
    🙂
