When you page back on a site, does Opera reload the page or is the page retrieved from cache?

  • I ask this because of questions asked about the tab previews.
    I thought it better to start a new topic.

    Is there a way to set this in settings?

    Perhaps set the cache to zero? Or is that even possible?

  • No setting for cache size I've seen. Desktop versions seem to fetch the updated page (at least, judging by this forum) while mobile versions don't. That is, if I delete a post here (as moderator) and then go back, in the mobile versions the list page doesn't show the post was deleted while the desktop versions do.

    You shouldn't. It's a special script here (it reloads even in 11).

  • (it reloads even in 11).

    It will do, unless you changed opera:config#UserPrefs|HistoryNavigationMode to 3

  • opera:config in version 24 brings me to the "settings" page.

    How do you get to the actual old config settings? Or is that possible?

  • @browzer1, No it's not possible, as the config page does not exist in the new version of Opera.

    Opera://flags is a similar hidden configuration page available in the new version of Opera, but contains a completely different set of options.

  • Linux, other sites don't reload. Neither in my 11 nor in my Ole Firefox.
    Operaforums always does.
    I don't think it's actually reloading though - it's something else which refreshes the content without reloading.

    So I mean what? This site is not to take an example.
