Opera causes 'loop back' when opening a forum page...
Opera for Ubuntu.
Two days ago another issue crept into Opera. Nothing was changed in any of Opera's settings that I recall.
I am a member of several RV'ing forums. I have the start up page I prefer in those forums stored in my Bookmarks that bypasses the opening page. I had Opera 'save' my Usr & Psw for each forum. And it worked without a hitch for months. And then two days ago, when I tried to use my bookmarks to go to those forums, Opera would take me to the generic front page instead. Not the page I'd linked too. And when I'd click on the forum page I want, the one my bookmark points too, it would loop around and return (loop back) to the same front page. WTH??
So I checked Firefox and Chrome. Neither of them do this. So I can't blame those forum sites.
Back in Opera, I knew that I should probably delete all the cookies but that's such a chore! And why do I have too anyway when I didn't change anything in Opera? I compromised, and instead Logged out from those forums, than signed in again. And that worked. My bookmark links worked again.
For several hours it worked. And then it started doing the loop around again??? Tried logging out and logging back in. This time it didn't help, it still loops around even after that and even though it fixed it before.
And it gets curiouser. It only does the loop back for those pages I've got bookmarked. If I click on one of the other forum pages, it goes right to that page. No loop back.
Very confused on this one. It's annoying. What the heck is Opera doing? How in the world can it be causing a loop back in those URLs? And why?
