The update to opera 25 seems to have fixed the slow mac pop ups. Hopefully it will stay that way. Thanks avi.
I didn't know there was a update to 25, it always said opera was up to date.... hmmmmmm.
chas4, flash is the overall problem. Its sucks on all my web browsers, and not just on the macs. Adobe has had plenty of time to fix the issues and they seem to do nothing about it. I wish more websites would phase flash out, as there are much better options out there already.
There is no way to sync yet, but we are working very hard making that happen.
If you are an advance user, I’ll drop one keyword that may make your day better: symlink the Opera Next preference directory to the Opera Developer directory. They will then share settings and data. This is unsupported, but it will work from a technical perspective. (I’ll not help you on the specifics here because you need medium skills to not break such a setup.)
I just spent 15 minutes retrieving my password to post on this issue.
Not being able to use a context-click to forward a link or a copy of an html page is a deal-breaker for me. This and the ability to save .mht pages is why I generally stick to Opera 12.
For those interested, I REALLY like Opera 12's ability to jump from one .jpg on a page to the next by simply hitting the space bar.
Opera 19, you got a 'ways to go to get up with Opera 12!
