Opera Facebook issue

  • You haven't enabled 'Opera Turbo' by accident by any chance ?.

    Check by going to 'O Menu / Settings / Preferences... / Web pages (Tab) / Opera Turbo' top option.

  • Nope, Opera Turbo was already disabled.

  • Check if "fit to width" isn't enable by chance.

    Check also if Menu > Page > Style is set to author mode and nothing else is enabled.

  • "Fit to width" is not enabled.
    Presentation mode is set to Author Mode. Only "Page style sheet" and "Page fonts and colors" are selected. (If i turn those off, every page goes to the most basic html appearance.)
    So sadly, those aren't the cause either. 😞

  • What about AVs, do you use any?

  • "AVs" meaning anti-virus programs? Those are disabled.

  • "AVs" meaning anti-virus programs?

    Yes.

  • Right click on the page > Edit site preferences. See if you notice anything different and/or wrong.

    Also try change browser identification to see if something changes.

  • Haven't noticed anything obviously wrong on the Edit Site Preferences page- no different than on any other page. I've tried all the browser identification (IE / Firefox and Identify / Mask) but nothing has made a difference i'm afraid.

  • Do you use any extensions like Ghostery or for ad blocking? Try disabling them.
    Other topics suggest they're guilty and need to be reinstalled.

    In another topic in this forum the user said there was an entry in opuntrust.dat causing the issue, so try to close Opera and move it from your profile folder elsewhere to test (if you have any problems move it back in).

  • The only extension i had was AdBlock, but it's been completely removed to try to figure this out.

    But, I removed opuntrust.dat, restarted Opera and now Facebook works! I tried it on the work machine too and success there too. Yay!

    I never would have thought to try that, because i don't know what it is. What exactly is this opuntrust.dat file?

    Thanks so much everyone!

  • Opera 12 has problems with Facebook. Deleting files from the cache and the like, is a solution that will help for a short period of time, after some time the problems are back.
    the same problem: https://forums.opera.com/topic/2463/opera-12-17-and-facebook-lag

    Developers that already in Opera 12 probably will not be addressed.
    sorry for my English
