[Solved]Google search results compressed. Google maps tiny type as well.

  • Opera has always worked well. After my hard drive crashed and I installed a new one, when I use google search or google maps in Opera, the results are compressed into tiny type. My other search engines are fine. I'd hate to switch off Opera because of this. Any ideas on how to correct this would be appreciated.

  • Reset the zoom?

  • @sgunhouse - It doesn't seem to be a zoom issue. All of Opera works great. All my shortcuts work fine. The pages are all as they should be. In the main screen with the icons, the top bar lets me do a google search. And above that, the address bar lets me do a google search. If I change search engines, only the address bar changes to whatever, i.e. DuckDuckGo. Then, the DuckDuckGo search works fine, but the google bar search on the icon page gives results that are ultra compressed into the left side of the view screen.

    Here's more... Google Maps from the icon is ultra compressed across the whole page. Looks like I am seeing it from mars or even neptune. If I type google maps into the address bar for a DuckDuckGo search, instead of it going to a DuckDuckGo search, like all other searches do... it goes straight to google maps page in it's compressed form. The only logic I can figure is Google doesn't want to cooperate with Opera. I hope someone out there can make sense of this challenge.

    PS, I had to copy over my bookmarks from application support after the crash. All is good except this. Thanks!!

  • Did you try a clean profile?

  • When on Google, reset the zoom. Or at least look at it.

  • @sgunhouse Hey you were right. It was that simple. I went to the compressed screen and hit view/zoom out. a window came up on the right saying -25. I hit zoom in and when the window came up I ran over to it and reset the zoom. All is back to normal. Google maps is working as well. Glad I joined the group. Thanks!!!
