Yeah, I'm "the only one disturbed by this." These fa99ots don't give a damn what you think, they don't care about their user's personal preferences, they only care about copying chrome.
FEEL MY HATE.
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!
Download Opera browser with:
So why do I still use it? My speed dial has been built up. Of course, the geniuses at opera didn't make it so you could easily save bookmarks that can be opened in another browser.
If you want specifics, we'll be here all week. It's not loading pages or it loads pure white pages that are as bright as 97 Nagasaki A bombs going off at once. The options are all gone, or, they're so damn complicated to find and change that the casual user would never be able to even get half way through it, I'm sure. I consider myself somewhat an advanced user and for the life of me, I can't figure out how to make this god awful piece of crap work properly. Opera 28 was GREAT, I had no problems with that. Maybe some did, but I didn't on my Win7 Pro machine. I wouldn't be so absolutely homicidally LIVID if the browser hadn't updated on it's own, without my knowledge like a sneaky f'ing snake.
Why so serious? Right? Just change browsers!
They're all going down this path. Anyone remember the good old days when all you needed was ONE browser? remember those days when there wee competent programmers? Wasn't that wonderful?
I don't know if any of the morons who created this monstrosity ever even check this forum, or if this is for users only...I just had to express my undying hatred for this browser. This version of this browser is the worst I've ever had the displeasure of having crammed down my throat, which is exactly what you do when you FORCE auto-updates.
But that speed dial. I have so much saved there and that's the only reason I can't completely abandon it. So now, I await the next forced update, like prison rape, to completely ruin that too.
Anyone involved in this update that's reading this...redacted. I don't think it's legal to say that. But can you do me one favor, just one since you OWE ME one after this nauseating BS...make all speed dial links and folders easily exportable. Don't give me your nonsensical computer jargon that makes it super complicated to do, make it a two or 3 click operation so I can be done with this absolute monstrosity. I want to go back to 28, but still have the option to access my Op29 speed dial. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? Do you speak my language? Can you speak? Can you at least sit up and beg?
And if tis post pissed you off and now you won't help me...I don't care. I'm so friggin' tired of the people who make browsers RUINING he internet. You're ruining it. RUINING IT.
I'll be back to see if you can at least make up for this blunder by getting me an easy way to export my speed dial in one way or another, and with all the hate and more because damn, you guys took the best browser and immediately turned it to being the worst. It's not loading pages, it's insecure and gets hijacked all the time. The add ons that are supposed to stop that either don't or they do stop it when you don't want it to. If it's a pop up you don't want, it'll pop up. If it's one you want it reads "ad block detected! Please change blah blah blah we're a bunch of fat dumbasses blah blah..."
The Opera 28.whatever that came before opera 29 was the best browser, hands down. But what a difference a day makes, it's now the worst.
Get rid of auto updating. And make it simple. Or I swear to god I will manually copy every last speed dial address I have, and that's a lot, post them to notepad, log down the extensions I have working for me and fumble through the program trying to salvage whatever info I considered important and uninstall this piece of absolute garbage immediately following this very long list of tasks.
I will go to every comments section and run you down. I'll say you worship Satan and eat babies. I will also tell truths, like how Opera 29 is insecure, incompatible with almost all previous extensions and has cut down our options and preferences to an even more ridiculously low amount as before.
Cut it out. Stop forcing updates on us. Also, add a feature that let's you revert back to your old browser if, by chance, one of us is stupid enough to give one of your new versions a try. This is ridiculous. I remember when only one browser was necessary. Not you need about 4 and they all have flaws beyond counting, but also attributes that cancel the other's flaws out. But Opera 28.whatever, the last version before 29 (spits) was extremely reliable and was my browser of preference.
And now I wish OPera 29 was an object that I could pick up, hold in my hand and shatter it into a trillion pieces.
I will start by saying you didn't address the auto-update issue. See, I know you think forcing them down our throats is akin to forcing a child to take it's medicine, but I am not a child. Opera worked fine, with a few minor exceptions being some of the changes from Opera 12, until I was once again caught in a lag before opera started up. It then gleefully informed me that my browser had been updated, all in an intertone as if it had done me a favor. This is why people don't like auto updates. They're often not compatible with extensions and previous configurations. So pretty please, with sugar on top...how do I make opera stop auto-updating?
If you can answer no other question, as it's beginning to become painfully clear, that I've asked or addressed in any of the problems listed, then please, for the love of god, TELL ME HOW TO DISABLE AUTO-UPDATES. Because it gets worse from here. It always gets worse from here. "New and improved" is rarely anything of the sort.
I'm not using a proxy, though I admit my ignorance of what exactly a proxy is, from my limited understanding it takes knowledge of the inner workings of the computer that I unfortunately do not possess. Also, there is no internet security software on this computer.
So much for that presumption
I'm very happy spellcheck is working for you, although as I stare at the word "spellcheck" in this sentence, it isn't underlined. AEIOU adn soemtimes Y. None of it underlined. At all.
I've just changed the format to HTML 5. Worse than before. Plays the same video twice, one overlapping the other. Switched back to the uncomfortabe view that requires a reload every time becaus that's actually far more tolerable.
Yes, I'm aware appearance options were available in 12. Why aren't the available now? The extensions that come even remotely close are all deeply flawed and revert back to the 37 hiroshimas of light that is the near death experience brightness of the hideously white Google background, among others. I just threw this question in there because seriously, it was very convenient. It wasn't good with certain pages but it's better to uncheck the high contrast option once ofr twice a week compared to having to press and darkening button for every website you visit.
You're ruiining your browser.
I'm on Win7 Pro, 2 gb for ram and...I'll save it since it might be irrelevant.
Dowlooads won't complete. The files are fine, but opera insists it hasn't completed
Wont open, leaving one process in the bavkground from last session which dpesn't allow you to start it right back up without task manager open
Spellcheck doesnt work
Speeddial icons no longer show
nO Page appearace optionss, high contrast B/W or W/B
No option to disable auto-updating, which as you can see, causes agitation. I don't want security, I want stability.
I'll come back with another list
Yeah, I got both of those add-ons. I've tried everything but they're a pain. I just got done working with the new Firefox today and got everything all set up to my liking and then...friggin' thing's giving me a headache trying to play videos, it has the same problem the old Opera 12 had when you don't let the webpage choose it's own style, you can't see picture/thumbnail links...
The internet's ruined, lol. It's just ruined. Part of it's a personal problem, my eyes have just grown ultra sensitive to light. The night/day extension just dims the page a bit and makes things hard to read. Night mode does what I want it to do but every time I go to a new page it resets to nuclear light blast mode. I feel like a Nagasaki citizen. My shadow's burned into the wall. My skin is melting...melting...
So if I have to choose between the 2, Firefox blacks everything out automatically and I just occasionally, whenever I watch vids or go to sits with pictured thumnails, I have to let the webpage choose their crappy style. Which is usually just...radiating. Very Hiroshima.
I made an appointment with a doctor for next week. See if there isn't anything she can do or recommend. Maybe its time to get glasses or something. Anyway, like I said, you guys had it almost perfect. I'd still be using Opera 12 but sites are literally rejecting it and closing the browser on me. I guess it's that outdated now.I just hate juggling 6 browsers. If I want to do one thing, I use firefox, another I have to use opera. Sometimes I have to fire up the older browsers just for convenience, and I have pale moon for the hell of it, but it rarely gets used. There was one major thing about the older browsers that made me keep them, but for some reason it's just slipped my mind. I blame having google as a homepage. It starts up like THE BIG BANG and instantly fries what little braincells I have left. Oh, that's right...I can search in google uncensored. Very important since they because the search gestapo. I tried bing...still hate it. But it's improved, slightly.
As I'm sure you can tell, it's driving me mad.
You know what add-on would be great? An add-on that takes me back to 2004 when all this crap wasn't necessary.
But hey, it's your OPERAtion. Heh, get it? So whatever. Keep being a chrome clone with a few unique attributes google's monster doesn't have. I just thought that, you know, pride in your work would make you innovators instead of imitators.
Well, that's a damn shame. It's a fine browser but I'm gonna have to go back to firefox as my primary. I'll keep this one as a back-up. I just want to get rid of some browsers, having all of these is a pain in the neck.
You should look into those old right click options...they were great. No add-ons, plug-ins or extensions required.
I searched for this topic but seeing as how both words "page" and "style" are common words used separately to address other issues with Opera, I got about a 100 threads that appeared to be totally unrelated.
I've been running Opera 12 since I DLed this version last week. And even though it runs numerous processes, an evolution to browsers I find annoying and excessive, it hasn't slowed me down yet. I find it's more secure than Firefox and a speed dial being available without an add-on is a major plus.
Now, enough of singing your praises, of course when you hear from people here there's going to be an issue. With opera 12, there was an option for "page styles." Every add-on and/or extension I've come across does not mimic that feature. The page style I always used was the high contrast that turned the background black and the text white. I don't know if it's just me, but a browser without a page style option like that automatically reverts to what I like to call the "Near Death Experience" option where the light is so bright it literally blinds me for a few moments and causes a migraine after about 2 minutes of use. It's like looking into a brighter sun. I hate it, what can I say?
I've DLed a few extensions to remedy this, but none of them default to the setting I want, white text on a black background. One actually does this but reverts back as soon as you go to another page and even when it's white or gray text on a black background, it makes all links this hideous neon blue that just doesn't mesh well with the rest of the page unless I zoom in to about 150%. Even just an option to match my system colors would do since I keep everything a dark blue, dark gray or dark red. Perhaps I'm missing a feature in my options or settings or whatever or maybe there's a better extension I've overlooked? If so please tell me because I don't know, I just wanted t see if there was a fix to this before I switch over to the new Firefox which seems to automatically match my own system scheme. I hate doing that because the new firefox is very insecure unless I DL about 15 add-ons, one of which being the simple speed dial option I spoke of earlier. However, it does only run one process at a time and I don't have to really mess with it too much. But it's not secure enough to make it my "one and only" browser. I'd like to go back to those days when IE6 was all I needed and the headache of trying to juggle 3 or 4 browsers at a time wasn't necessary. It seems all new browsers have some major flaws that make me have to DL other browsers that remedy the other's shortcomings.
I know this is all over the place, so let's stick with page styles and we can go onto other topics from there. At this time, that's all I'm asking for. At worst, I'll simply have to keep opera 12, which now closes automatically when visiting certain sites due o not being able to handle...whatever programming offending pages are written with. But at the very least I can copy and paste URLs into notepad and then close opera 12 and reopen this version and just go directly to the source. But that's really, really irritating.
Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to get everything in for you to take into consideration. I'll end it here and await your reply.
