Opera 12.17 Instagram issue

  • Just recently I've started to see a problem with https://instagram.com/, the home page displays text only and if If I try to view a user page via a Google search the page doesn't load at all (it's blank).

    The only way I have been able to view the pages properly is by deleting all cookies via the Delete Private Data menu entry. Deleting cookies specific to instagram via the Advanced|Cookies menu isn't enough for reason unknown to me.

    So far so good, the trouble is I have to do this regularly to get this to work which isn't necessary on other systems running the same version of the browser. The problem persists after trying a fresh "upgrade" installation of Opera too.

    Any ideas how I can fix this please?

    Thanks in advance,
    Robert.

  • I took a look at this behaviour using Dragonfly, the first log is when the page fails to load, and the second shows when the page loads when the all cookies have been deleted.

    You can see the GET command differs despite the same URL being used.

  • Partially fix for Instagram. Create UserCSS for site:

    .-cx-PRIVATE-ProfilePage__header {padding: 0px 0px !important;}
    .-cx-PRIVATE-Shell__content {position: static !important;}

    Unfortionally links will not clickable. For clickable needs
    *{box-sizing: content-box !important;}
    but everything will be askew then.

    Positive thing: Savefrom extensions will work (generate direct links).

  • Forum broken code

    .-cx-PRIVATE-ProfilePage__header {padding: 0px 0px !important;}

    .-cx-PRIVATE-Shell__content {position: static !important;}

    *{box-sizing: content-box !important;}
