Still no resolution to File SaveAs problems

  • I still see no real way to do file save as under the new Opera. When I try to save from Page/Save As, I get three options.
    Testing the three different using this web page: https://www3.troweprice.com/usis/iinvestor/en/mutual-funds/historical-performance.html

    Web page complete - htm - Opera web document - the first time there is a pop up menu asking which type to open with. Opera is in the menu, clicking then saves it. Later when clicking the page in Explorer, the page comes up in Opera, minus the statistical data I was looking for. This type of data cannot be saved evidently..

    Web page single file - mhtml - ' This creates a directory! When clicking on it in Explorer, pop up menu shows Internet explorer or asks how to open it. Opera is not in there, nor can I find Opera in any options, and would it do any good anyway?

    Web page html only- html- Clicking in Explorer creates new tab in Opera, which spins for a long time, then displays a lot of verbiage which was not the page I wanted(showing the entire site in a way), and the data I wanted cannot be displayed.

    It appears there is nothing that is useful here for saving static page data.
    Is anything going to be done? This is VERY important to me, for example when saving payments made to financial institutions so that I have tracking data of what I did.

    Note: you can do this test yourself. If you have recommendations for me, try it first.

    Version: 34.0.2036.41 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 8.1 64-bit (WoW64)

  • Version: 34.0.2036.41 - Opera is up to date

    Not that it will change anything but latest stable version is 35.

    When I try to save from Page/Save As, I get three options.

    Here i only see two: Webpage complete and webpage, html only.

    Web page single file - mhtml - ' This creates a directory!

    As the name says, it should save the page in a single file. There is a flag that enable this option but it also remove the other two.

    Same behaviuor in Chrome and Vivaldi so it's probably a Chromium issue. In Firefox the data is shown.

  • Thank you for replying. A previous posting had me set the mhtml option.

    Are Opera coders not competent enough to make mods to poorly functional open source code?

  • The whole point of Opera switching to the new renderer was so they wouldn't have to deal with maintaining their own renderer all by themselves. So the Opera team is not operating on their own fork of Webkit, they are using the exact same code as in Chrome. Any changes they make have to be submitted up the chain to be added to the renderer, just like everyone else running on it. Since it has not been fixed in the renderer itself it wont be fixed in Opera until it is. Its slower but it also means its a lot less work.

    They probably do mods but they prefer to wiat for a fix from Chromium so to avoid possible conflicts.
