Helps needed using opera

  • Hi! I'm new to this forum. I have been using opera for quite a few years and currently using the 12.01 version, my operating system is windows XP. Today, I got a problem while browsing through opera, when I tried to log in Wikipedia through my account, it didn't work, nor did they say that I'm using wrong username or password. When I tried to log in from another browser, it worked. But I'm more comfortable with opera than other browsers, so I need this problem fixed so that I can log into wikipedia using opera. Can anyone help me in this regard?

    Another problem is, when I try to download the 18.0 version of opera it just gets stopped at 99.9%, what's the reason?

  • Which version of XP - as in, original, SP1, SP2, etc.? Opera 18 will not install in an un-updated XP system ... not that it should prevent you from downloading, but to save you even more grief later.

    Oh k Thanks, I won't download it then, and my other problem with logging in Wikipedia is also fixed (don't know how). Cheers!
