Broken websites (Twitter, Tumblr)

  • I have the same problem with Twitter on Opera 12.16.

    In the meantime i use TweetDeck for Twitter...

    JavaScript is the default script language used by all web browsers
    Java is the complete programming language (not a script) used by Java Virtual Machine * you need to install it on your PC *

    There are not related.

    Thank you edmarcio. Yet it is a strange unfortunate coincidence that on the same day we got Java 1.7.0_45 some sites got suddenly broken. I'm just wondering if there was some safety update to the JavaScript language that Opera 12.16 was not updated/prepared with/for. Opera should do fine with TLS 1.0, RC4 128 bit encryption; RSA 2048 bit exchange of tumblr and tweeter, which are pretty standard, the fact is the login page is totally scrambled... Tumblr and Tweeter are also two different things and yet... There should be a culprit and the only changing I can remember in the OS was, as mentioned by Flxwrx, the Java update.

    I have to believe you when you say they are not related, yet these things are not a mere hazard.

  • Green Man Gaming is also inaccessible. It works fine in IE and Opera 18, but in Opera 12.16 if I try and log in or if I add something to my basket and try and go to the checkout stage, I got a "403: Forbidden" error.

  • "It's not from our end, it's from VeriSign. Sorry about that though." - Opera on Twitter

  • If that was true, how come it doesn't affect any other browser?

  • I had no pictures loading, clear cache and cookies, now it loads like OP pics, even worse. Opera 12.16

    Do you even know how certificates work?

  • rafaelluik: great idea linking to a tweet when twitter it is broken 😉

    That is a completely separate issue to this one.

  • Just one more reason to use Opera 11.64. 🙂

    Why don't you explain it to us?

    Or the most recent and supported Opera 17. 🙂

  • So are we forced to let go of Opera for good or will there be a fix for 12.16 users?

    I asked about this on Opera's Facebook page. I mentioned that users are having issues with Twitter, Tumblr etc. and asked if they would be releasing a fix. They deleted my post within minutes. I hope they do fix this, as they're definitely aware of it, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

  • Rafaellluik, thank you for your comment. Should we wish to use 17 we would all have done it so far. (Actually I did use it for 15 minutes, maybe half an hour or so). We got to 12.16 from updating. Opera 17 (15) is not an update. It is a different product, do you really find a reason why we should use 17 instead of the real thing (the preposterous Goooooogly?), because if you do I really don't.

    In the meantime I'm probably taking Pesala's suggestion and rolling back to 11.64. I'm not quiting the real Opera (the real thing!) until it is clear Opera team does. I have hope in good sense and believe that, after all the big issues I saw Opera going by through the years, proceeding with the 12.16 would be the chalenge to take. Either that or keep the 17 in the shelf until it could proove to be something as brilliant as 12.16 was (is), instead of a poor copy of something that already exists and that most traditional Opera users really seem to hate for a reason or another. It is not a question of sports team loving, this tool is something useful and needed for our daily tasks.

    You mean this one, or this one, or this one? Why would them only censor you?

    For some on here, unfortunately it is a question of "sports team loving".

    I would suggest giving Firefox a try. This morning I've been messing around trying to get it to work like Opera 12.16 using extensions and I've got back the majority of the functionality I need using the following: -

    Add to Search Bar - Allows you to right-click in the search field of any website and add that site to your search engines.
    All-in-one Gestures - Give you more powerful mouse gestures than are in Opera.
    All-on-one Sidebar - Gives you a sidebar very similar to the one that's in Opera 12.16.
    Context Search - Allows you to highlight something on a web page and search with any of your custom search engines.
    Duplicate this tab - Not really needed, but makes it a bit easier to duplicate tabs and gives you a bunch of extra options.
    Speed Dial - A more powerful speed dial than the one in Opera 12.16.
    Undo Closed Tab Button - Gives you a button that opens the last closed tab, with a drop-down list that allows you to select from other closed tabs.

    Those, combined with rearranging some buttons/toolbars, has given me a very close experience to that of Opera 12.16.

  • Twitter, Tumblr, and what else? We might learn something by collecting more domains and discovering what's special about them.

    Disabling OCSPValidateCertificates, refreshing Twitter, and then enabling OCSPValidateCertificates -- allows you to have a mostly-working Twitter (some images missing) for a while...seemingly until you restart Opera. That's a decent compromise for now.

  • I disabled OCSPValidateCertificates... so everything working fine... even images.
