Tumblr not working on Opera 12.17

  • Hello! Recently Tumblr stopped working on my Opera. Dashboard scroll and other actions beside links do nothing. Any suggestions on why, and how to fix it?

  • Have you tried masking or identifying as another browser using the network tab on the site preferences?

  • I'm also using Opera v12.17 and I've just registered to tumblr so I'm not an expert. Made some simple dashboard. Scrolling is really really slow at this process, but apart from this I think it works correctly. Maybe you used some adblocker or Ghostery extension or host file is blocking something. Try installing Opera fresh as usb version next to your normal version you use daily and see if it works then.

  • Thank you for the suggestions. Masking or identifying as another browser didn't work, neither did disabling adblocker, nor using usb version of Opera browser. 😞

    Might this be a problem with Java, of which I have zero knowledge?

  • It may be a long shot, but I had so much issues with new ssl/tls settings remotely send by Opera Team that your issue might also be resolved changing these settings.

    In address bar type:
    opera:config and search for ssl,
    disable "Enable SSL v3" and save,
    search tls,
    enable only tls 1.0 and save,
    now clear cookies for tumblr website and restart Opera.

    I hope it will help you.

  • Thank you for your suggestion on changing Opera configurations. It sounded really promising, but didn't fix my issue. It was worth trying anyways. 😞

  • Sorry to hear that. I don't have any other ideas. Here on v12.17 Tumblr works. You can try moving your existing Opera profile to another computer and see if you still got the issues (but remember to clear cookies and cache).
