RE: google search result changed display.Opera for Windows
OK the extension suggested above appears to require activation each time Opera is started. I've found this extension for Chrome which doesn't need to be configured each time you start Opera, you just configure it once and it'll remember the settings. Here's the link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher-for-c/djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfmg
I just choose "Windows Firefox 15" works great. The extension should work in Opera, if not, you need this extension forst (it allows for the installation of Chrome apps into Opera) https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/download-chrome-extension-9/?display=en
One problem I've noticed with both extensions is that everytime you open an image from the facebook string and then close it again, the string goes back to top, now I have to open every string image in a new tab to prevent that.
Opera Google problemOpera for Windows
Lately, I see this when using Google in Opera's newest version; Google seems to be reverting to an older version. Sometimes, if I refresh the page, it reverts back to normal, and then it happens again. I only see this in Opera.
In the next example, if I try to search something after searching for something else, Google freezes, it stops searching:
Any clue as to why it happens?
Thank you so much!

RE: Force Opera to use Flash PlayerOpera for Windows
Thanks for replies! I too had been sticking with Op 12 but it's just not compatible with some newer sites...or it works jerky; so I tried the ultimate, the one, the only CHROME - the slowest browser I've ever tried, it could be because of many apps I installed but with so many common-sense features missing, I simply couldn't browse without those apps. Then I came back to Op 12...then I got to experience (again) the incompatibility of Op12 with the newer generation sites. THEN...intelligence struck me...the new version of Op is based on Chromium, so Chrome apps HAVE to work on Op...I was right, I'm a genius:lol:
This YTB issue appears to be the final issue, which has been solved now (it appears so). One thing I don't get...since Chrome and Op are both based on Chromium, why is Op so much faster than Chrome?
@sgunhouse: On that page, it says that "The default player is currently used." I can't opt out, never mind though.
Force Opera to use Flash PlayerOpera for Windows
I've seen a couple of posts on this subject but there's no clear answer to it. How can I force Opera to use Flash Player instead of HTML5? The reason I wanna do this is because on HTML5-played videos, on YouTube, I can't set any other resolution than 360p, no higher, no lower. I understand some months ago you could force Opera to use flash by joining the HTML5 trial and then leaving it, or something like that; not anymore. I tried some addons like YouTube Center, but these apps are messing up YouTube; they come with a plethora of useless and destructive features which...are messing up YTB like...the lower controls bar (the one at the bottom, have no clue how it's called) won't autohide when in fullscreen, also, each time I open a video page, it'll refresh once, for some reason. I don't know why HTML5 is so much
betterfor YouTube than flash, when in fact it is just a piece of...well...
I don't want any fancy apps with 10 trillions of functions for YTB, I just want to use Flash instead of HTML5. And YES I'm sure this happens on ALL vids played with HTML5, it's not that I only watch videos that are simply not available in a higher resolution. The very same videos, which ARE available in 720p or 1080p can be played at those resolutions on Firefox because Fox is using Flash, not HTML5.
How do you guys do it? Do you use Opera to browse YTB? If so, are you able to select any other resolution than 360p? If so, do you use Flash? If so how?:lol:
Thank you so much!
