If you hold down Shift while doing the action to open the image, it will open in a new tab. There are other ways too.
Hmm, Gives me and idea that it should be possible to come up with a command similar to this solution Stng came up with for paste and go in search fields: Item, "Paste and Go"=Select all & Paste & Delay,500 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress enter" from this thread:https://forums.opera.com/topic/6670/opera-12-17-how-to-edit-search-field-pop-up-menu
emulating the shift key with the command for open image. I will give it a try when I have a little time
I would want to run tests after midnight, when the system couldn't be overloaded, to see if that changes anything.
Is this DSL or satellite? Even on the best of days, a connection of that speed isn't going to pull any modern page up in a satisfactory amount of time, but minutes is too much.
Many sites with sensitive information (such as banks, brokerages, etc) are coded to prevent saving login information. This is for your protection to prevent unauthorized access to your account.
This is unfortunate. There is such a thing as too much security, like how the guy was able to crash the German plan because the cockpit was too secure. and the apple fiasco. On one hand they want us to have "strong" passwords and to keep changing them so that it is not something that will be easily remembered and a pain to enter on a mobile phone. Then try to prevent auto login.
And it is not entirely for our security, partly for theirs to avoid liability and embarrassment
Interesting article. And kudos to Opera for putting into a browser something that ought to be resident in all browsers. That said, as this war unfolds, users are going to have to get used to sites breaking or blocking browsers which employ ad-blocking, either internally or via extensions. TANSTAAFL still applies, and selling ads/tracker-space is a key way many sites pay for their "free" content - so it's understandable that the sites would try to make users 'pay' for viewing their content by allowing their ads. At the end of it all, users are going to have to decide what and how to pay for content, or suffer being excluded from some places they've been accustomed to visiting; likewise, advertisers (and websites) are going to have to recognize that there is a limit to what users will tolerate in terms of ads - especially animated ones - splattered all over a screen.
My personal issue with ads lies primarily in the risk they create for drive-by infections because neither websites nor the ad-servers to whom they rent space properly vet the ad-makers' code. Rotating ad servers serving up occasional scripted malware are a particularly noxious and difficult-to-trace form of attack. For many users, blocking ads is less a visual-preference thing as it represents an added security layer of computer protection. I'm one such user.
Unfortunately, there is no such option. In spite of Opera's heap of functionality and options.
The editing of a skin's configuration also won't help:
http://homepage.hispeed.ch/ttt-o/guide/32full/a-thumbnailwidgetskin.html (it is possible to scale up thumbnail area but not thumbnail's image itself).
Maybe it is possible to replace standard thumbnail image with extension through the Opera'a (Presto) extension API. There are some abilities to work with tabs in extensions API of the real Opera 12.
I don't know if it possible through the opera.dll patch (hack) to scale up thumbnail images. But there are useful opera.dll patches that exist and works:
Patch to disable Tab Stacking function in the Page Bar (Tab Bar). The Tab Stacking still works in "Windows" sidebar panel after patch.
Patch to disable reset of the default search engine in Opera 12.18 ("reset to google" issue inherited from 12.15+)
...so maybe it possible to patch opera.dll in a same way for a thumbnail images.
Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I am not that capable but if there is anyone who want's to take a crack at it I would pay good money for that.
I am so excited to have the latest update I want to spruce it up as best as I can.
We are talking about view in the Mail Panel (with the list of messages and viewing message bellow/right to the list)?
You can assign new custom keyboard shortcut (for an example - Alt+Z, but you can use a single-key shortcut too) for fast scale up mail message to 150.
Edit your keyboard config:
Add new keyboard shortcut in the [Mail Window] section
z alt = Focus page & Zoom to, 150
I've found that the custom mouse gesture will be more handy (e.g. GestureRight in [Mail Window] section). But the Opera Mail is just stump of the Opera 12, it doesn't have a mouse gestures support (unlike original Opera 12). For unknown reasons the mouse gestures (fantastic feature for opera mailer) was removed from Opera Mail.
Also you can use a custom keyboard shortcut (or custom toolbar buttons) to open Received, Sent and other mail folders with a predefined zoom setting. For an example:
Read mail,2 & Delay, 1000 & Focus page & Zoom to, 150 - open "Received" mail folder with zoom 150%
Read mail,5 & Delay, 1000 & Focus page & Zoom to, 150 - open "Sent" mail folder with zoom 150%
