Cant browse, I get: "Font Data Collection" "This might take a few minutes"

  • Hi,
    I'm getting this screen and simply CAN'T view pages...I'v found the suggestion to moify use "bitmap fonts for complex scripts" under opera:config but "opera:config" dose not work.....
    What can I do???


  • Did you wait few minutes to allow font data collection process to finish?

  • First time I waited more than the end it finished but page did NOT load!!!
    Other times it simply dose NOT FINISH.... do I get rid of it?
    It's simply UNUSABLE!!!


    1. Please switch to High compression mode and report a bug from your Opera Mini, then send me the ticket ID you receive on e-mail.
    2. Do you use any non-standard fonts on your Android?
    3. Did it work correctly before?
  • Hi,
    for point 1 sorry can't do that anymore: I fount the was an upgrade on store and went in bootloop and would not start, so I deleted opera from recovery. made a clean install but still got bootloop.
    So I installed beta version and it's working again!
    Don't seem to get font problems....

    For point 2&3: yes I have always had a custom font on my phone but only had problems recently.

    Will test beta version for a while and let you know.


  • Currently beta and stable use different font systems in Extreme mode, and if you install stable, you're likely to get font dialog again. If that's the case and it still doesn't finish, try changing your fonts on your Android to default.
