Rendering problem with Opera 37

  • Hi, I'm experiencing a weird rendering problem starting from Opera 35 (if I remember well).
    Looks like the in some elements Opera adds a pixel and breaks the layout.
    I cannot find the way to attach some screenshot I've done.
    The problem is visible looking to this site:
    https://www.latruccheria.it
    The social buttons aren't rendered properly.
    On this page:
    https://www.latruccheria.it/prodotti
    The sidebar jumps to the bottom of the layout.
    I use Linux Mint 17 with a nvidia video card and proprietary drivers.
    The problem is still present on Opera 38 and 39.

  • Our problem is, revoluzione, we don't have the rendering problem, so we can't see what you're experiencing.

    What do you suspect is causing this problem for you in Opera? I had a problem with my bookmarks not rendering correctly --beginning back in Opera 35. Believe it or not, I solved the problem a couple of weeks ago by simply changing themes.

    I know it's a simple idea, revoluzione, but doing that solved my problem. I figure it's worth a try!

  • Hi perknh,
    I found the issue: it's related to nvidia proprietary drivers! (I suspected)
    Solved by using nouveau drivers, but it is just a workaround.
    I'm a web developer! I use Opera to develop all of my sites and applications.
    I think this issue affects many people: all of nvidia drivers I try give the same result: weird rendering.
    I wonder if there's a way to better inspect this problem.
    Finally, I'm in love with Opera since 2006 🙂 so I'd like to help solve this. It's a pity that many people could just switch to Chrome to solve this issue..

    Hi revoluzione,

    I'm glad you figured out what the problem what the problem was. And I suspect you're a gamer too --using nvidia drivers is a clue!

    Yes, Opera is great, and I've been using it for years too. I wish Opera would have a secure download site such as Firefox and Google Chrome do. People look for that little green lock now when they download something. I suspect Opera would have more users if it just made that one simple change. And it is because of this, I install Opera by the command line, but I don't think many people want to bother with that! But, yeah, Opera rocks. It is my favorite browser.

    Also, in regards to rendering, I still have a problem seeing the cursor in the Omnibox with many themes. That problem has not gone away for me. I once considered the problem solved because all I did was change themes in LXDE; but with Xfce, I'm noticing that I can't see the cursor with a lot of themes. I only discovered recently that this problem isn't limited to one theme at all. So I'd guess you'd say, I'm using a workaround too!

    All the best,

    perknh
