Opera 12.17

  • Does anybody know the file that i have to replace to get outlook working in x64 ?
    I cant remember and the old forum is unfortunatly gone....

  • @angiesdom

    You know about Opera's devs internal workflows? Opera 12.x gets security bugfixes.

    Excellent!

    The rest will not be fixed because it's no priority. Opera ASA develops Opüera 20 (Blink) now, you know?

    Too bad they accidentally making new bugs with these minor fixes. Making some sites completely unusable (a web-pages which works fairly well in 12.14).

    Try 12.14 x64

    Yes, that works, but it was only a missing/defective file in the 12.16 x64 installation file that prevented outlook (and maybe other sites) from working.
    It was possible to replace this file with the one from the x86 version.

  • Yes, use insecure old software like Opera 12.14.

    For the amount of sites that work in 12.14 and fail in 12.16 (and I guess 12.17 too), for me, it's worth it. Especially when the functionality between the two is pretty much the same.

  • Nevermind, just found it: public_domains.dat
    Its missing in the x64 installation, you can replace it with the one from the x68 installation.

    Yes, i will if i want.

    Thought you were using 12.16 ?, from what you said up there ^.

  • I believe they will end the support soon, the same thing that happened with Windows XP.

    But that does not make it function any less, and it will still work (for me) the day after they drop support as well as it did the day before. #Shrugs#

    I was using 12.14 because of some site incompatibilities but now im trying 12.17.
    I just remembered the outlook problem in 12.16 x64 (and apparently now also in 12.17 x64)

  • You people are really naive ...

    With version 12.15 they "accidentally" introduced bug(s) which made Opera Presto have even more site compatibility problems, then with version 12.16 they, again todally "accidentally", deleted a file from x64 version what brought even more site compatibility problems. And now we have v12.17 which doesn't fix any of those issues. Coincidence? Really, really?

  • OMG how could I forget that certificate theft and that they didn't even mention v12.16 on their blog. Huh, of course they care.

  • Coincidence? Really, really?

    Paranoia? Really, really? Uh... these are professional developers. They're not going to purposely scuttle Opera Presto. Opera Presto is already dead and it's only a matter of time before it becomes entirely useless. What they ARE doing is providing security fixes. If you don't like them or (perish the thought) don't trust them... DON'T UPDATE. It's really as simple as that.

  • Just updated (forgotten how long it's been, nine months!)
    All seems OK.
    🙂

  • Uh... these are professional developers. They're not going to purposely scuttle Opera Presto.

    Purposely or not, they did just that, two times in a row. We are talking here about a single file, a single file (public_domains.dat) which can fix a lot of site compatibility problems. So professional ...

    Opera Presto is already dead and it's only a matter of time before it becomes entirely useless.

    Opera Presto had a word of mouth marketing, Chopera doesn't have, so it's only a matter of time before it becomes dead, too, at least the desktop version.

    Come on people just look at Otter browser changelog https://github.com/Emdek/otter/blob/master/CHANGELOG
    In only a year it will have most Opera Presto features, and from Chopera we got "Show full url" after almost a year.

  • Opera Blink will have more users now, it is lighter, it has unique features. It provides a better browsing experience.

  • it has unique features

    Are you referring to the absence of the bookmarks manager and site settings, as well as to the meager customization options, even in comparison with Chrome? Well, those "features" are definitely unique to Chropera, although they can hardly attract someone who's not employed by Opera ASA and while Firefox and Chrome are around. So, keep hallucinating.

  • Opera devs removed bookmarks due to a research they made. They discovered that only a minority have used bookmarks. Search in the blog for Opera 15 and read the articles. In the latest version you can enable the bookmarks bar on settings.

  • If stuff is removed based on how many people are using it, why not remove the Opera as a whole? I mean, it's a real minority on the browser market. Makes sense by going by that ideology.

  • April Fool's day:)
