  • They have just updated Opera to version 21, but didn't fix this problem! 😞

    It is not an Opera problem.

  • Well>> They have just updated Opera to version 21, but didn't fix this problem! 😞

    It is not an Opera problem.

    Well, in User-Agent Switcher, if you select Opera 10, it still works. So my guess is google doesn't recognize Opera as Opera. It identifies it as Internet Explorer 6, or 7, or 8...

  • I can't solve the problem neither with user-agent switcher nor deleting cookies. Now there's also another problem: when I search for a video by using google, when I click on a youtube result it can't load the page.

  • I am having the same problem, and the user agent switcher isn't a good solution for me. When I have the agent switcher enabled, gmail will not load and other sites are slow or display in an outdated format. Is there any way to automatically enable the user agent switcher for google only, and have it disable itself for all other sites? I am not tech-savvy in the least and am having a hard time figuring this out. Thanks... this issue really blows.

  • Select an updated browser in the extension. If "Chrome on Windows" isn't working add a new one in the extension options and use that.

  • rafaelluik: Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately, I still have the same issues after following your instructions... I am thinking about switching search engines altogether until this is fixed 😕

    Google is blocking Opera, if you choose Chrome user agent, you get the new interface of Google.

    Is this a bug or an intentional/malicious feature? Google displays the current version in Opera 12, and gmail and other google sites work fine for me in Opera 20. If Google was blocking Opera on purpose, wouldn't these be affected too?

  • I have Opera 12 installed too, and it works just fine with it. So Google is not targeting Opera - or is only targeting this version... Is that likely? And if so can't Opera 'fix' it?

    The user agent of Opera Presto and Blink are different. They are blocking the new one. If Opera fix that, the would use some patch in browser.js maybe.

  • Google appears to be mostly back to normal on Opera 20 now. I still don't see the camera icon on Google image search that allows you to search by an image's URL. Hopefully google is continuing to work out the bugs.

  • Yeah, seems to be fixed. Must be on Google's side because I still have the same Opera Version.

  • Google is normal now! Opera's victory!

    It was to good to be real, it came back to the old layout

  • As for me google still looks properly, without UA switching.

  • Indeed, Google patched the problem!

  • Still getting the ols layout here.

    Me too.

  • Perhaps you should delete cookies?

  • I'm trying with clean profile, also with cookies cleared, logged in and not to Google account. I'm getting the old layout. I guess Google sends different code to users randomly. 😛
