Please make sure to finish all your posts before this time. The downtime should only last for a few minutes.

Close frozen tab, spawns new identical frozen tabs,

  • The problem with the spinning disc, is that once your tabs get full, you can't identify tabs by their icon.

    You end up having half of them just being spinning discs.

    Also of course, it sends the message that "something" hasn't loaded. Which just is confusing.

    Seriously. This is a regression in bugs. Why release a new version with recurring known bugs?

    No problems in loading that page here.

    Try disabling extensions if you are using any. Also check firewall and AV.

  • It loads fine here as well.

    The problem is that Opera will display a spinning disc for eternity for some pages.

    I can't rule out its AV. Just that it happened when I upgraded Opera, and has been a problem with Opera before.

    And as i said, it's not happening here. Spinning whell means that the page wasn't fully loaded, what may be caused by a software or extension that is preventing some elements to completely load.

    And AVs sometimes cause such problems.

    That's a fair point.

    The image is just before I disabled my viruskiller. And it doesn't do a difference.

    I think its a bug regression, because I've seen it before, and with an Opera update it has reappeared.

  • Just to be clear, with my AV disabled I havw refreshed the same page, and the behaviour is the same.

  • The old Opera (Presto, through Opera 12) would often have issues with "Never finishes loading", usually had to do with a tracker somewhere on the page not responding. If so, an ad blocker usually fixed it. Maybe this is similar - though the original example loads fine here. Of course, we may get a different version than you based on location ...

  • Uhm, in that case it must be an UI bug.

    IMHO the browser ought to decide that the page is rendered, rather than just go into "I'll never display the icon" mode.

  • The image is just before I disabled my viruskiller. And it doesn't do a difference.

    What's the url for those two pages that aren't fully loading? Do you use proxy, Opera Turbo or something like that?

  • arstechnica.com is one.

    No, I haven't done anyrhing special with settings.

  • arstechnica.com is one.

    Still no problems with that one here.

    No, I haven't done anyrhing special with settings.

    Including flags?
