  • Hi all.

    I use Opera 12.16 and my Internet works fine, as usual, but in the last weeks Facebook is a disaster. Sometimes it is almost frozen.

    When I enter in a Facebook page, the browser shows the usual messages like "Request sent to... Receiving data from... Sending to..." but those messages don't appear once only, they appear again and again, many times, cyclically, almost endlessly.
    Sometimes the page doesn't appear, the screen is blank, sometimes I see everything but images. The little "wheel" of the browser sometimes turns turns turns endlessly...

    All the messages refer to servers of Facebook, therefore the culprit should not be a malware/spyware that tries to bring me elsewhere.
    Of course I have done every kind of control, even by Hijackthis and OTL, and my PC is clean.

    Some days ago I emptied the cache of the browser (I never needed to do it) and the situation seemed solved, but within a few time the issue appeared again.

    Any idea?

  • I have tried another browser (Maxthon) and Facebook works fine instead.

  • I have tried another browser (Epic) and Facebook works fine.

  • Opera 12 has been awfully slow with Facebook for a very long time. Try opening >500 comments in a post... That was one of the reasons why I migrated to Opera 15 in May 2013.

  • Sadly this is the reality of a browser that is old by web standards and is no longer being developed. You would have no issues opening FB with the new Opera browser. Why not install it alongside the older 12.16 and use it specifically for sites like FB that won't open properly in the older version of Opera?
