PRWeb crashes Opera

  • Here is an another broken site in 12.16:
    http://www.asos.com/women/ (click "Help" under the "Questions" in bottom of page). Unattended redirect to the index page.
    Works fairly well in 12.14 (no redirect).

    Dear Opera Software, what's wrong with you? Where is your quality control?
    Or you probably want to alienate remaining Opera's 12.x user base in every way...

  • Are there any significant security fixes between 12.14 and 12.16? I've been using 12.16 for ages now but annoyingly it crashes all the time. If rolling back would help, I think I will do so. If 12.x didn't crash so much and wasn't so slow at JavaScript compared to modern JS engines found in other browsers, I'd be content for some time to come.

    Upgrading to a modern branch is not feasible for me. The new branches are still not usable from my perspective as I consider tab bar placement to be a critical requirement in my daily browser and will not switch until its return.

  • Version 12.15 is also affected (just like 12.16).

    There is no critical security fixes between 12.14 and 12.16 (there is NO buffer-overflow vulnerabilities etc.).

    I believe that a web-sites compatibility that has worsened and poor stability of the 12.15/12.16+ is more critical flaws.

  • I don't know about changes "under the hood", but main change from .14 to .15 was a non-issue, that is the default search engine may be changed ("hi-jacked") by other software, and the main change from .15 to .16 was about some certificates being "hi-jacked" and therefor should be invalid.

  • Yet another broken site (12.15+):
    http://www.flashscore.com/

    Works pretty well in 12.14

  • Lol, it crashed bang on time with Opera 12.16. Impressive.

  • flashscore.com seems to be working OK here with 12.16.
    Certainly no crashes and seems to display OK too.
    🙂

    12.16 x64 - not working (shows "Loading ..." message instead of the content).

    And i guess there is no hope that it's won't be fixed ever.

  • Still fine here.
    Perhaps it's just the 64 bit Opera 12.16 having the problem, I'm using 32 bit.

    Hm... O12.16 x64 (Linux) shows content for me.

    Yes. The site is broken in 12.16 x64 (windows).
    Anyway, there is no reasons to use 12.15+.

  • Opera 12.16 (x64, Windows platform) is not compatible with the largest Russia-speaking social network VK.com. The is no ability to upload photo into user's profile. The mentioned functionality works fine in 12.14 (in both x86 and x64 version, OS Windows).

  • Any plug ins not updated? or might be a corrupted plug in or cache file

    Sounds like broken browser sniffing

  • Sounds like broken browser sniffing

    No. The actual reason is missing public_domains.dat in 12.16+ (x64/Windows) distribution setup. That's why VK.com, flashscore.com, twitch.tv (and i guess many other similar web-sites) doesn't work correctly. It wasn't fixed in 12.17 x64/Win! Seems that Opera Software don't care anymore about quality control for Presto versions. But the cookies support and stability was broken in 12.15+ (both x86/x64, any OS) regardless of public_domains.dat.
