Opera Classic update for Android Lollipop

  • Hi,
    I just finished installation of Lollipop on my Note 3 Samsung. Opera classic that I enjoy working with, doesn´t work on it. I found some comments on the forums and thinking of installing Opera mini instead.
    How am I going to transfer all the data and bookmarks from Opera classic to newly installed Opera mini account?
    Tnx and regards,

    If you have an Opera link account which had synced your Speed dials and bookmarks etc, you can login with the same account credentials to Opera Sync (new sync) on either Opera mini or Opera browser for Android and the content from Link will be imported to a new Sync account.

  • I applaud this move by the Opera Team. Opera Classic is still one of the best browsers I had the chance of using, and still enjoys a cult following.

    Here's a thumbs up in hope you don't fully abandon one of the best pieces of software on my Android smartphone.

    Thank you.

  • sgunhouse..

    Do you think it was like the old j2me theme problem?

    Are you running a custom wallpaper or more likely a launcher with portrait only mode ticked?..

  • No. A stock Nexus 7 (second edition), the default green wallpaper, and rotation works fine. Just for some reason every single page was only showing at half width until I reset the app's data.

  • I think the Opera Classic is more better than Opera for Android. But in Opera Classic, having problem with Bengali language font. But still Opera Mini is the best

  • Still not working. It worked for fine for the first few days, then bam, nothing but a white screen...

    Try 'developer' settings & 'use GPU to draw....'
    Just installed the 12.1.9 here on an octacore with 2G ram, and it's touch & go, pardon the pun. Forced closed the old Opera Classic after white screen.

  •  .... was only showing at half width until I reset the app's data.

    Could be one of Google's scripts snoook in..they halved some of my Jellybeans in the floating 'game' when I rooted my android.

  • Still seeing this warning at Yandex Mail, despite running brand new 12.1.9

    Warning! Your email imbox is vulnerable due to an old browser. To protect your data from intruders and malefactors, you must urgently switch to a different browser.Steps to take...

    What do they base it on? Is there a cert. or date stamp somewhere needs updating?

  • No doubt they don't track Opera 12 versus "later" versions ...

  • After closing the opera link service, export bookmarks became impossible. Bookmarks file /data/data/com.opera.browser.classic/opera/etc/2/all - this is not a standard (binary) file which is impossible to parse. Maybe the developers do another update and replace the bookmarks file to the "standard" format? Maybe in sqlite database? After closing the opera link service does not create a recyclebin in the bookmark, need to fix.
