Opera Mini 7.5.4 for Android

  • Helllllllo....? A little help please....

  • @bpydzinski

    the site im using is forgotten tales forums but im unsure of the exact url.

    its a problem with opera, not with the forum,

    when i write a message in a text box, as soon as i leave the text box OPERA tries.to update the page, and loses the information sometimes. only way to counteract is to stop OPERA from refreshing. it refreshes in exactly the same way that it does when you click a tickbox on ANY site, as soon as you click it opera tries to update the page which is completely unnescessary and usually i cancel the refresh because opera sometimes loses all the page info on ALL sites not just limited to one, the problem is definately with opera, other browsers dont do this. im a prolific poster on some forums and ive lost hours of typing due to this issue.
    its completely unnescessary that opera should attempt to refresh every time you finish writing a text box, or click a tickbox because even if you cancel the automatic refresh operation, opera remembers, but if you dont cancel this automatic refresh ooeration built.into opera (and opera alone, no other browsers) then sometimes opera does lose the info.

    there are some other major issues with this browser that still havent been fixed from the old version (another, seperate refresh issue). ive seen other people post about this issue in other places online and it has to be fixed because its a MAJOR issue.
    here is the completely seperate refresh issue,
    when i am on a page (any page, on any site but most prolific being freecycle) it wont go onto the page i want it to when i click a link, it just refreshes the page im on. the only ways around this are to force close opera and try again, which sometimes doesnt work and i just have to wait it out, (takes hours or even days) or, i can press and hold the link i want to go on and then press 'open in new tab' and this sometimes actually goes onto the link i press rather then just refreshing the page im on. (which theres no way that opera should be doing this)
    i thought this issue would have been sorted out in this new version but it hasnt and tge update has infact just added new problems of its own without fixing the old issues.

    thank you for taking the time to reply to me bpydzinski because this issue is terrible and i wont be using opera until an update is available, sorry i didnt reply sooner but i kept checking back for like a week and didnt recieve a reply so i forgot to look, anyway, i just remembered so i just thought id reply, thanks for your time. btw, are you an opera employee or just an opera user?

    also, i am using a motorola razr i xt890 using the upgraded android software (4.1.2) if thats helpful in any way.

    ive learned to cancel the refresh immediately and copy the text i write before attempting to submit any writing on a forum, good job i did with this information because i had to force.close opera yet againI and copy all the information to actually be able to post this post on this forum btw.

  • Opera mini.... waste of time... a tale of 1st to worst & can't even get help on forum... blecccchhhhh

  • After the update does not open at all!!! Just a black screen for a few seconds then crashes at all... good People like to roll back to the previous update?!) telephone SE Xperia arc's. Already tel been rebooted,But still just a black screen... the Phone is not buggy.

    Could you check the logs from your device (using f.ex alogcat) and tell me if a line looking like this:

    java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Cannot load library:

    can be found. If yes, please contact me over PM.

  • Hi,

    I am having a weird problem with Opera Mini on an Android phone (the phone is Highscreen Zera S running Android 4.2.2). The problem is OM does not connect to the Internet. When I run it, it shows "Installing" with a progress bar, then a black screen saying "Cannot connect to the Internet. Please check settings". Then when I tap the black screen, it just closes.

    I tried the following:

    1. Uninstalled and reinstalled (from Play Market, from an APK file downloaded from Opera web site). Many many times. Also tried installing "Opera Mini by Yandex", same problem.

    2. Tried connecting via my mobile operator (MTS Russia, both 3G and EDGE connections), via my home Wifi, via other free Wifi networks in various places). Also tried connecting via VPN (I have DrWeb antivirus, which offers VPN connection through its own servers, checking for viruses). I also tried deleting DrWeb altogether.

    3. Tried modifying my Wifi connection using different DNS servers (Google DNS, ISP's DNS, Wifi router as the DNS server). Also tried setting to DHCP assigned values.

    Nothing of the above helps. My ISP connection is excellent (50 Mbps PPPoE), everything else works perfectly, on both the phone and other devices on the network (my notebook, Smart TV, several tablet PCs).

    The funny thing everything worked perfectly on my previous phone, Highscreen Zera F. But Opera is not working since I upgraded to Zera S.

    Please don't suggest installing Opera Mobile because it doesn't have Opera Link and RSS reader.

    One more thing to consider: Zera S has a software called App Permissions, which pops up a notification every time an app requests access to camera, contacts or location (but not network). Nothing pops up when I run OM, but this app may be related to why OM isn't working. However, I also tried wiping the phone and installing/running Opera Mini with App Permissions disabled. Still no results.

    Is there anything else I can do? Like run some logging tool or add some servers (that OM contacts on first lauch) to HOSTS file on the Wifi router, so it doesn't go through DNS resolution but directly addresses these servers by their IPs? Or is there any log on Android devices that I can access to see the cause of the Opera Mini trouble?

  • Have you tried up browser & next browser?

  • I want in opera Mini for Android private browsing, improved history and smart downloading from opera for android. please reply

  • Oh and display list like in Opera for Android 😢

  • Have you tried up browser & next browser?

    what's that? if you are talking about Opera Mobile and Opera Next (Beta) - no, I am not going to use them as neither supports RSS (I mentioned this in my comment). UC browser - tried it, think it sucks; Next Browser doesn't support RSS either. I just want Opera Mini to work; it has everything I need.

    BTW, I also use Opera 12.17 on my PC and not switching to the new versions - if I need Google Chrome, I will install Google Chrome, not Chromera, not Operome.

  • hi what's the notification function on the new opera mini update?

      =============
      The 1sy line in your orig post, mentioned opera mini & using on android & how it didn't work for you. afaic, opera mini has long become junk, nearly useless junk, as a browser. There are so many things it won't do or won't do right, that it used to be able to do, it's ridiculous. It got worse & worse over time & in last few months, it has become nearly non functional. There are so many sites that it won't even open or function right if it does open, that I had to give up on it almost completely. So I asked you, if you had tried uc browser or next browser. The typo escaped me where it said "up" instead of "uc". I have used uc browser for yrs & it always was pretty good, innovative, and highly functional & laden w/many great features. But what it has become currently is amazingly good as far as my experience w/it. It is easily the best Android mobile browser I've ever used. And everything I try to utilize on it works & works well. It's light yrs ahead of what opera mini Android current state of functionality. I don't know about rss, cuz I've never had the need for that, so I don't know if it has that or not. All I know is that where ever I try to go (almost any site, if not all), it goes there and normally renders the site regardless of how sophisticated the site & renders most if not all of the functionality of all the most current optimizations. I think it has flash and/or some other video protocol that work. It does an excellent job of downloading & handles multiple downloads w/good speed & resume perfectly & it can & does stream anything that is downloadable, e/sh to own streaming function that always works perfectly. Opera mini can't do any of that. It also has compression technology very similar (I thing 80-90 percent) that opera mini has for those that need to save on or use lo bandwidth. It also has a "mini version" (I've never used it yet, as the latest uc browser just seems to do everything I have ever tried to hand it & so it very well. It also has some kind of backup or cloud storage thing built in. It has the nite vision feature that so many asked for so long in mind (no biggy for me). In fact, I may not be a super sophisticated user in terms of business, professional or development, but it is a real good mobile browser, reportedly w/something like 500 mil users & when you ask for help, they respond timely from what I have seen. It has, I think, more features & functions, that really work than any other mobile browser I'm aware of. This is my opinion. I could be wrong, but if so, I'd be very interested to know in what ways it is lacking. They have all sorts of awards as well, from big name concerns. It was for a long time always pretty innovative, but never as good as it is now. I honestly don't think any of other mobile browser for Android can currently hold a candle to it (esp not om). I urge anyone who hasn't checked out the current version for Android in awhile, to do so.. And I have been forced to not bother too much w/opera mini anymore, even tho for several yrs it was a great thing for me (esp when I had a Java phone). Nowadays, there are so many url's that I cannot even get to open w/opera opera mini & many that do open, will not function or render correctly as they're intended to. And downloading became useless long ago. And this forum isn't as good as it used to be (I don't even see a reply or quote function) so I only rarely check in to see what's being said & as always, it's mostly just one complaint after another. I have no doubt in my mind that most ppl (or at least many) can have a much easier richer experience by giving uc browser a try.

    As to next browser, I only recently discovered it & it seems to work decently & has stability. It also has flash or h.264 or whatever.... (videos always seem to work & any sites that won't open in om, or rendering issues, work just fine there).

    Thanx to opera mini for all the good use I got out of it w/old flip feature phone & then later w/a Java phone, but after 6 or 6.1 things went steadily downhill & then worse once I moved into Android. If there are some Android phone users who feel they are still getting good use out of om, glad to hear it, but I don't see how. And I would love to know what is wrong with uc, that so far has escaped me... It seems to me to be a world class product.

  • Oh & I meant to add... that if you Google "RSS in UC browser", there are many references to the browser having RSS, but I don't see it in the current new version I'm using, so I'm not sure if, how, where it might be there if it indeed is, but again, many references to RSS in UC, if u do a search. If they had it b4, and do not only w why they wouldn't now? I noted that they showed a little "open book" icon for RSS in the search bar area, but I don't see it in mine? To add, I don't understand how a browser like mini, which currently cannot deal w/many many sites, correctly or at all in many cases (at least not from my phone), can continue to use it, especially, if you are bringing in lots of news, etc, sites, via RSS.

  • Nowurtalking, thanks for the many letters. 🙂 I do agree UC browser is good, but I am quite happy with android's standard browser for browsing, and for the few things it can't handle, my phone has Chrome preinstalled. And even though Opera Mini is crap, there are still things I like about it, like Opera Link (syncing passwords, bookmarks, etc. with the desktop version and with Opera Mini for BlackBerry, which I had been using for years before plunging into the realm of green robots) and RSS. What really vexes me is not the bug in OM (every piece of software gets bugs from time to time), but the fact that Opera staff are not answering users' voes. I could tolerate that when I was on the BB, which was never mainstream, but for Android, I believe they should be more responsive. Even worse, I sent a copy of my post to support@opera.com, which is listed in Play Store, and that wasn't answered either. Screw that attitude, I'm now officially looking for a decent RSS reader. 😞

  • It's "nowurtalkin"...(no g). As to "many letters" to you, I believe I had only replied to you twice, the 1st one being less than a full line.. Now you say UC browser is good, but your 1st comment was: "UC browser - tried it, think it sucks;..", so that's quite the 180...

    Again, re: RSS reader, apparently at least some versions were reported to have it. Maybe they dropped it in the latest versions. I noted there were many RSS readers available in the droid store, as I looked there to see perhaps if there was an add-on for it for UC browser. That's another of the innumerable features & functions of UC browser, add-ons. The 9.8 (maybe there's 9.9 now?) I have is the best thing I've ever seen in a mobile Android browser.

    Lastly, the small brush off you lent to om, ie, "a bug", is to me a gross missing of how truly poor it has become. There are more sites that om will not open or not properly handle, than they do, BY FAR! ... and that is only a fraction of what it can't or no longer can do, as a mobile Android browse. Used to be I couldn't find anything better, now I can't find anything worse. Incidentally, I just noticed that w/o me turning anything specially on or off...UC browser reports to me that it saved me 94%, overall, in bandwidth. WOW!

    Just look at the posts from start til now, on this new forum, and it was the same going way back on the old. And the lack of support, to the level of rude imo, has been pretty much what they have long served up (or I should say, not served up).

    from what I read in your post, simply continue to use the elements of om that you enjoy & you say your well equipped for the rest. And since om has the RSS, you're all set methinks... Om mini never was nor intended to be, a full service browser. Technically, it's not really a browser anyway, but more of an .obml reader. It's just sooo fallen apart, from its earlier capabilities.

    Good luck

  • opera.mini has none to rival when it comes to mobile for most people. i love it. however, i expect better computerized interent service from it. hope, days are not long ahead!

  • Opera mini won't connect to the internet. I uninstalled it then reinstalled it. Same problem. I then used the "normal" android browser and UCS then Noat then Chrome. They all work fine. Why is Opera mini not working? All I get is "Cannot connect to the server".

  • @rabindroy:
    "opera.mini has none to rival when it comes to mobile for most people."

    • well then you must have knowledge that Omini has more than 500 million users, as UC browser does...(?). Personally, I highly doubt that is currently the case. As I noted, a simple perusal of the commentary, from start til now, on this board... as well as for a very long time on the previous iteration of board, clearly does not even come close to reflecting a user base attitude, that feels it's the best. Esp not in the last year or two. Thousands of complaints & very little overall praise. And many of the same repeating complaints. I can't help but venture, or at least wonder... that if you think it's the best thing going, as you said, what other browsers, up to date now, that your have given a serious look at or tested...?
      =========

    "... i love it. however, i expect better computerized interent service from it.
    hope, days are not long ahead!"

    • I cannot even understand the above statement (...expect better computerized interent service...)??? If by that, you mean opera mini's working w/the Internet, well, isn't that the main function of a browser? Or if you mean opera working w/your computer, then you are talking about a diff subject than opera mini browser for Android.

    As I basically asked b4, what can om Android do that UC browser can't do? (the only thing I know of relates to RSS not available but is in some versions). Better yet, what can om Android not do that UC browser can? That... is a very long list & includes many very important functions.

  • @lost in...part 2:

    I suggest checking your settings & network test. You m get also note what your device is as well as versions, etc. Then some techy might help you to connect. I would be curious also, to know that since you can connect w/UC browser & assuming you have a very recent version (like 9.8) of it....for what specifically, would you be looking to omini to do for you, over & above UC?

    Appreciate knowing ans to same... Thx

    • that's it...!!?? Not even the supposed 1 post (wow, awesome forum..)

    This is what you get these days, if your lucky, with om...bcuz in many cases, all you get is a blank page w/the Addy at the top. (some sites work... I est about 40-50% these days. That is using a quite capable Android phone w/ver 4.0.3. And in many other sites, which do open, rendering is so bad it's ridiculous. And many times I now discover extremely important content is not even there that should be & I would never even know it, had I not intuitively checked using other browsers... "best mobile browser for most people" (another poster's comment..) ........ Yeah, RIGHT! ... gimme a break...
