Opera Mini 8.0 for Java - a few issues and requests

  • I'm using Opera Mini 8.0.35626 on a Nokia 113. Here are a couple of issues/bug reports and feature requests:

    • Sometimes, clicking a link just reloads the page. When this happens, opening the page in a new tab usually works instead.

    • Upgraded Unicode support would be nice, not least for emojis.

    • When typing in the browser's address and search fields, the editor only offers English letters and symbols. Hence, if I want to enter a search term with other letters (like å, ä and ö), I have to go to fullscreen edit. I'd like to be able to enter any kind of letter directly in the input field.

    • Also, would it be possible to make text copied from text fields in the browser to also, automatically be copied into the phone's cut-and-paste memory? As it is now, only text copied from the fullscreen editor is "remembered" to other apps, such as texting. So if I want to copy a text from an email to a text, I have to a) copy it in the browser, b) paste it into the address or search bar, c) open the full editor from there and d) copy it there.

    Thank you for a great product. Let me know if you have any questions about the issues listed above.

  • I don't think that Opera Mini be still in development.

    They may fix some issues related to page loading server side but I don't think anything new will be added.

  • Sometimes, clicking a link just reloads the page. When this happens, opening the page in a new tab usually works instead.

    Please provide an exact page where this happens and which link do you click.

    Upgraded Unicode support would be nice, not least for emojis.

    Characters are drawn using what is available on your phone in most cases. If you don't see some emoji, then most likely your phone simply doesn't have one, what is quite often the case on feature phones to save memory.

    The other two issues would require J2ME client changes, which is unlikely to happen soon.
