CSS and images not rendered

  • This actually might be the issue. Unfortunately.

  • "Might be?" Do you know of any admission of malfunction from Opera team? Or is it just a guess?

    Sadly nobody says a word about their findings after visiting the website indicated in first post...

  • Yes, I checked. No difference.
    Have you checked the address yourself and it renders well??

    It seems ok here, at least the first page.

    Did you notice her badges? 🙂

    Opera 36 is kind of old version of Opera (current stable one is 39) and there is a considerable chance that it may start facing problems to render pages as the web changes.

  • This actually might be the issue. Unfortunately.

    What part?

    Using Opera 36? It is reported as being the last stable version...

    Or using Windows XP SP3? Because I don't see anything wrong with it. Firefox works perfectly on every website.

  • What part?

    Most probably the fact that you are using an old version of Opera.

    Using Opera 36? It is reported as being the last stable version...

    Opera no longer supports XP and Vista. Opera 36 was the last version with support for those systems.

    Not quite.

    Even with uBlock up and running, as the session grows older, it starts having certain trouble with Facebook. I even use my not-so-up-to-date Google Chrome more often.

    Then again, Opera's Chromium now... :whistle:

  • What part?

    Most probably the fact that you are using an old version of Opera.

    Funny... I've quit Opera 12.17 because some websites don't render correctly, just to find that Opera 36 fails miserably exactly the same...

  • IF it fails in Opera then it probably fails in Chrome and any other browsers that share that renderer. Does it work in Firefox? If it fails there also then its a problem with the site and not your browser.

  • With the latest update to Opera for Windows, Ver. 39.0.2256.48, I too am finding increasingly that icons on websites are not rendering. Indeed, sometimes there is not even any text replacing the proper image.

    I have also found the most recent releases of Opera seem to be running increasingly slowly on some sites.

    Win 8, 64 Bit

  • To add to the above -

    After extensive maintenance on my PC (nothing showed up) I find that the Admin copy of Opera seems to be displaying icons OK. But my normal User copy does not. Also, when Opera last updated I lost my open sessions (Tabs) when I restarted it, in the User account.

    Any advice how I can get the User copy back on track?

    TIA

    As I already said, Firefox works perfect where Opera fails (see below).

    Chrome & Opera need a lot more work. In fact I still consider as felony Google's takeover of Opera 12.17 project. Google butchered Opera and got rid of a major browser competitor. Why do they need TWO BROWSERS??

  • Google does not develop Opera and they did not take it over. They share a rendering engine. Thats it. The interface and extra features are all developed by the Opera team.

    I have managed to solve(?) this.

    On the site with the problems using my User version of Opera I made them go away, first by removing the setting: 'Block third-party cookies and site data'.

    Then, when I set this option back again, to how it had been, the problems did not return.

    Err...?

  • Opera need a lot more work.

    Do you use any anti virus, firewall, anitimalware or similar software? If so, have you checked with it disabled?

  • Then, when I set this option back again, to how it had been, the problems did not return.
    Err...?

    Probably because the necessary data was already downloaded?

    I use, obviously. Last version of ESET Smart Security. The same software that protected my PC flawlessly for the last 10 years. I tried with it disabled completely. No difference. In fact, why would it have something to do with not loading CSS and images?? It's Opera's fault. Firefox works.

    My guess is Opera fails at SSL protocols. This is a screen capture of debugger console showing multiple errors.

  • Everything works fine on my end. It has to be something specific about your setup that is causing the problem if you are the only one experiencing it. We're just trying to help you track down what it is.

  • We're just trying to help you track down what it is.

    How? Telling me there's something wrong on "my setup"? Can you be more specific? Because I have installed Opera 36 for XP to see how it renders websites that don't work anymore in Opera 12.17. Immediately after a default installation of Opera 36, the website suggested didn't work. What a progress...

    And all this while Firefox works perfect. Thing is I am not a fan of FF, but I might have to become one because Opera fails me.

    It is a matter of SSL for sure (see post above) and by reading other topics I see that Opera team will not address new SSL cyphers.

    Possibly. Anyway, this needs updating.

    It does seem that, for whatever reason, the latest version of Opera (Ver. 39.0.2256.48) does need the option: 'Block third-party cookies and site data' to be disabled. Otherwise I get two problems on one website I use - Firstly, very slow loading of pages. Secondly, some site icons do not display correctly, though they still work. (And they display correctly with the 'Open image in new tab' menu option.)

    AFAIK this was not the case in previous releases of Opera. Why this should be so I do not know. Perhaps something has changed on the site? Perhaps the option did not really work as intended on previous releases of Opera? Perhaps there is a fault with the latest version of Opera?

    But something has changed, there can be little doubt about that. I have previously used Opera with this option set and not encountered problems previously with the sites I use.

  • In fact, why would it have something to do with not loading CSS and images??

    It's not unusual that those softwares block loading of pages or its elements.

    It's Opera's fault. Firefox works.

    Since you seem to be the only one with the problem, i would say that the chances of it be Opera's fault may be very low.

    How Chrome, Vivaldi or other Chromium based browsers behave on that page?

    My guess is Opera fails at SSL protocols.

    As 36 is a old version it really may be missing more up-to-date security protocols.
