Opera Forums Search Box Drop Down List

  • @amatczak said in Opera Forums Search Box Drop Down List:

    Can anyone of the affected people try to reproduce on

    Firefox 68.0.2 (without extensions) and Opera 62.0.3331.116 stable (only with Opera Ad Blocker as extension) on Windows 7 32-bit:

    Search terms used:

    • search field
    • search box
    • search plugin


    • All attempts to access an entry from the dropdown hit list by clicking on it fail in the Opera forum.
    • In the NodeBB forum all attempts are successful.

    I noticed that you can only use the forum search in the NodeBB forum if you are logged in: As a guest you are redirected to the login page. Here in the Opera-Forum the search is also available for guests.

    The Opera-Forum has more than twice as many categories as the NoteBB-Forum, which may also require special character sets e.g. for some of our local subforums.

    By the way: Firefox displays an icon in the search box on both forums, Opera does not. If you click on it, the page or will be opened:

    FWIW: Firefox and Opera are installed as portable versions here. I could make them available on request, since I have no personal data stored (bookmarks, speed dials, passwords, history, etc.). This might make it possible to check whether the same installations that fail on my computer work as intended on another.
