Opera breaking Windows Aero

  • For some reason every time I go on Amazon and chat with them I get a error that pops up. I'll copy what it says.

    "The color scheme has been changed"

    "The following program has performed an action the requires Windows to temporarily change the color scheme to Windows 7 Basic.

    Program: Opera web browser
    Publisher: Opera Software AS
    Process identifier (PID):4384

    Windows will automatically change the color scheme back to Windows Aero when this program or other programs performing similar actions are no longer running."

    Ok so to fix it I have to close Opera and restart it. I've not had this problem with Chrome or any other browser. So this is exclusive to Opera. Chrome I believe has some problems, but so does Opera it seems and Opera is not supported by some major websites. I will try and stick with it though.

  • I just figured out a "work-around". I use the "user-agent switcher" extension in white-list mode and add Amazon.com to the white list. Granted it's a "work-around" though and not a fix. This, and problems like this are the reason why Opera isn't very popular.

  • @weevie If changing the user agent fixed the issue, then it's a problem on the page and not on the browser.

    Really?. I don't have that problem with any other browser....

  • @weevie Because the site doesn't do browser sniffing with them.
