Opera 12.17 and Facebook lag

  • For what it's worth, I find that Facebook works badly with Firefox as well. I'm certain it's Facebook's scripting. They have all those ads on the side, which constantly refresh, and certain browsers aren't built to handle it. It's all part of the "new Web", which has gone mobile.

    I've been trying lots of different browsers this past week, and found two or three that work well with Facebook. Opera 20 is one of them. I won't say the others on this forum because that wouldn't be fair to the Opera team.

  • I just intalled Firefox 15.01 + FB Purity extension. Facebook works very fast and smooth.

  • Urlfilter/contentfilter, Modify toolbars, use of custom context menu
    Only via third-party solutions or extensions.

    Import password
    There's a command to run to import saved passwords from 12.x to the new Opera if it didn't import automatically. If you use a master password there's an additional parameter.

    Site Preferences
    Depends on what you need, you'll find JS, cookies, etc, in the settings plus the zoom level which is saved automatically for each domain. There's also an extension to extend and facilitate the use of these options in daily use.

  • I will stick with Opera 12.x + FF 15.01 for Facebook, for now.

  • What's the point of using that outdated and unsupported Firefox version? Plus, it doesn't offer half of the features you asked.

    It's only for Facebook. And it works very well with it. 15.0.1 was the first version of FF to support Spdy version 3 protocol, which FB also supports.

  • 15.0.1 was the first version of FF to support Spdy version 3 protocol

    Correction: 15.0 was the first version of FF to support Spdy version 3 protocol. 15.0.1 is just some cosmetic update i suppose.

    Opera mail has been FastMail for some time now. https://www.fastmail.fm/

  • I have the same problem. I now run Firefox alongside Opera 12.17. Firefox for Facebook and Gmail (which lag in Opera), and Opera for the rest.

    I don't find Gmail particularly lagging with Opera 12.17. Of course it can be, if you have lots of mail. I don't have that much so i can't tell.

  • GMail(except html mode), FB and all jscript bloat websites are laggy for me too...

  • I've being using Opera for 10+ years and it's been my preferred browser for it's great set of features that are present until v.12.17. Since Opera decided to discontinue all those features and a Desktop interface (I use Win 8.1) and support for Opera 12.17, I can only say good bye to Opera and move on to Firefox. It's a damn shame!

  • facebook locks up opera 12.17 tight ...only way out is to use m.facebook.com ...sheesh !!
