Garbled text and graphics next to pictures in Chicago Tribune Photo Gallery

    This is not a problem in other Chromium-based browsers such as Google Chrome and Vivaldi on my Windows 7 32-bit laptop.

    I am using Opera Developer 42.0.2374.0.

  • Also notice a strange grey-colored rectangle in upper-left corner when attempting to view this photo gallery that I do not see in the aforementioned browsers.

  • It seems OK here.

    Any extension being used? What about VPN/Turbo?

  • Well, the "strange grey-colored rectangle in upper-left corner when attempting to view this photo gallery" I found out only occurs when sidebar is enabled.

    As far as VPN/Turbo/Regular browsing, it does not matter which of these are enabled as far as the garbled text to the right of the photos in the photo gallery is concerned.

    I have these extensions installed and appearing on the address bar: Weatherbug; Feedly Notifier; X-Notifier; Notifications for Twitter, Facebook,...; Facebook Status; JavaScript Toggle On and Off; Pocket (formerly Read It Later).

    I have these extensions installed that only appear in the right-click context menu or are otherwise not part of the user interface: Mailto:; OneTab; Facebook Share Button; TweetRight; Open in (background) tab; Download Chrome Extension

    Finally, I do have sidebar extensions, also, but they should not matter I would think as this garbled text to the right of the photos in the photo gallery problem occurs even with the sidebar disabled.

  • And what is the result with those extensions disabled?

    Do you have a screenshot of the problem?

  • You sure you're in the right forum? I recall posts about a gray rectangle in Mac versions ...

    I am sure I am using Windows 7. :)

    I have a screenshot. I don't know how to post it here, though.

  • Upload it somewhere else, then see the link about Markdown below to see how to show it in your post - or just link to it.

  • I will have to research how to do that, I guess. Thank you.

    This should be a good link to the photo/screenshot of what I am describing: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7AwKsMiyVLwb2VvTkRqZk4ydHc

  • this is what bug reports are for.

  • Quite a few sidebar extensions there ... a lot of the "garbled text" (and images) seems to involve duplication in different positions. The main image is also duplicated - it isn't just "next to" the image.

  • All that mess occurs even with the sidebar disabled, with the exception of the grey rectangle in the upper left corner.

  • this is what bug reports are for.

    Can someone who knows how to do that at Opera do that, or is that my responsibility to figure out how to do that?

  • You should, since we don't know how to duplicate it (and you have the screenshot to include). After you report the bug, if you post the bug number here then one of us can check on it. Since it does involve strange visual effects, make sure you include your graphics card vendor and version - they might even want the results from opera://gpu but may prefer you do that via email.

    Use the 'Report a Problem' link from the Help section in Opera's Settings

    Including the extensions in it?

    The sidebar is disabled. Doesn't that disable the sidebar extensions then, also? They certainly are not visible when the sidebar is disabled.
