Maybe you could contact with website owners and ask them to disable annoying popups?

RE: Gmail Problem on Opera MiniOpera Mini
@jackob11 we are looking for the best way to fix this. Unfortunately if you want to log out from Google account in Extreme mode, you have to clear your cookies. I am really sorry about this situation.
RE: Is Opera Mini 19 spying on me?Opera Mini
@cubot, this is most probably part of our experiment we perform to measure performance of users network - it is not any user's data collection. The experiment is performed only on beta users, so if you don't want to participate, please switch to stable version.
As for Speed Dials - the ones you delete should not be added again, so it's definitely a bug. Once this happens again, please go to https://bugs.opera.com/wizard/mini from your phone and submit a bug report. Please include your country, mobile operator and which Speed Dial was added again. Thank you for reporting.
RE: Oprera Mini can't able to select any optionOpera Mini
The fix particular bug is going to be released as an update to Opera Mini 32, so you don't have to wait for Opera Mini 33.
If 33 version released then try to do "Report a problem" inside Opera Mini then you saw that its showing you do report for 32 version. Because they don't update it. After 10-15 days of version 33 release only then yoi can see now they add the system to do report for 33 version.
You don't have to select proper version to report a bug. I will ask if we can remove that field, as proper Opera Mini version is reported anyway if you report from application.
RE: Why I'm still using Opera Mini 7.6.4Opera Mini
1- It really save data: the 7.6 version has the best compression method.
Extreme mode in new Opera Mini is using the same compression mechanisms as 7.6 with some additional features, so that statement is false. High mode has a little worse compression ratio and uses more phone RAM and CPU, but provides normal web standards compability.
3- better Compatibility with many websites: many websites that render correctly in mini 7 doesn't work at all in the new opera mini. Many times you must disable compression.
Well, that sounds strange as both Opera Mini versions use the same servers. Can you give some example of sites that work well in Mini 7.6, but does not in new Mini?
4- Remain open: opera mini 7 save all the tabs in the memory so that you don't have to reload a Web page. You just open mini 7 and you continue just where you left.
Have you checked that using Extreme mode?
5- copy/paste facilities : just hold on any box to copy/paste text , a must.
Again, this is still available in Extreme mode.
6- manage my search engines simply
You still can add and remove your custom search engines, but indeed an option to edit the search URL is not implemented. If you need that, could you explain why?
stupid update promotion never mentions if you'll lose all your bookmarks & saved pages
When upgrading from Mini 7.6 to new version, you'll keep your bookmarks and saved pages. If you're worried that this may fail or you want to have an option to restore previous Opera Mini, you should do a backup of your app with app data. Unfortunately that is not easy on Android if you don't have root access (which is the case for most people).
Then I saw on my wife's Opera Mini (more recent) that she can't turn off image loading!
You can do that, but only in Extreme mode.
RE: Opera mini uploding problemOpera Mini
@armaani99 what happens when you try to upload in High mode? Does the application crash or you see some error message?
and Choosing option does not work on facebook like photo filter cant select while uplading photo in extrem mode.
This problem was already discussed in https://forums.opera.com/topic/23868/oprera-mini-can-t-able-to-select-any-option.
In Facebook there has a way to upload multiple (3 photos) at a time. In Opera Mini you can select 3 photos but can't upload them. After selecting 3 photos then press upload then everytime Opera Mini can able to upload just only one photo.. another two photos can't be uploaded by Opera Mini. Previously I report to Opera by submitting bug report and also I tried to let them know via Opera's Twitter page & I also pasted in here in the Opera Forums. But nothing at all.
But that is in Extreme mode, right? I cannot actually see a report about that from your e-mail. Please make a new report or post bug ID here.
RE: Hate the new Ads? Downgrade to 30.0.x!Opera Mini
@jackob11 we actually read your feedback and believe me that we would want to fix every problem our users encounter. Unfortunately we simply can't, because we don't have enough resources to fix every bug. We usually try to fix problems that affect widest group of people first.
Regarding ads your feedback is very welcome and valuable.

RE: Cannot use opera-mini emulatorOpera Mini
@boymax111 we have identified one issue that might have been causing you problems. It is now resolved. Can you please confirm, that it works for you? If not you can alternatively try using Opera Mini in J2ME emulator.
RE: Data Savings Apparently Completely Disabled in Latest Update?!Opera Mini
First of all, I am really sorry about your wasted data plan. The good news is that we have identified an issue affecting some subset of Android phones and the fix is on the way. Can you please try to install Opera Mini beta 35.1 from Google Play and check if it works for you with High mode? A confirmation that it works would be very helpful for us.
RE: Font Overlapping ProblemOpera Mini
Ok, I can see the problem on my device too. I thought that you have such problem with almost all texts, but it turns out it affects some specific elements. We will try to fix this. Thank you for reporting!
RE: Opera Mini seems NOT to compress data on Blackberry 10 OS. Ideas?Other phones
If you try to gzip all the text that is on the page, you get 44kB of data. You could possibly go below with some different compression algorithm, but not very much.
Opera Mini compression will be visible more likely on some more advanced pages with CSS, JS, images etc. On the page provided, there's simply not much that can be compressed.
RE: Font Overlapping ProblemOpera Mini
It looks like you have Single Column View enabled. Does it help when you disable it? Have you tried restarting the browser, does it make a difference? Is this beta?
RE: CSS Guidelines / GuidanceOpera Mini
It just automatically chooses High or Extreme mode based on website, country, Android version and possibly other factors as well.
RE: How to detect if Extreme Data Saving Mode is enabled?Opera Mini
RE: CSS Guidelines / GuidanceOpera Mini
First of all we are really glad to help webdevelopers in making their sites work good in Opera Mini.
In general CSS support is really similar to what you have in Opera 12.16/12.18 so you can test your site first in old Opera desktop browser as it's probably much faster way to develop. There are some exceptions and differences:
- in most cases possible font-sizes are limited to some subset, I described it in detail in another topic, notably this subset differs between devices,
- line-height is disabled at the moment, though we consider enabling it in the future, so please don't make assumptions on this,
- padding should work fine,
- elements with position: fixed are rendered as they were with position: absolute - they don't stick in viewport when you scroll,
- no CSS transitions, limited transforms support,
- broken complex flexbox-based layouts, simple things may work,
- some other minor things.
Regarding tests you can perform at css3test or w3c sites: they show what the engine supports, but a lot of things are changed on transformation to OBML.
If you have any specific issues you can always post your page or example problem here and I can assist on possible solutions/workarounds.
RE: CSS Font-size not changeable on Opera Mini Extreme modeOpera Mini
Allowed font sizes are indeed trimmed to some subset (which may vary between devices). In normal case you should see a difference between 12 and 19px though... Don't you have "Single column view" enabled in settings? If this is the case, then very likely page layout (including font sizes) is pretty broken.
If text hierarchy is really important to emphasize in your case, then you have few options:
- try wider scale of font sizes, maybe just this 12 and 19px was an unfortunate pick,
- use color scale to achieve hierarchy,
- use bold text to emphasize text that would normally be slightly bigger.
If you care more about your website looking great, then you need to understand that typically websites look slightly worse in Opera Mini and our users are often used to this. If your page is readable and usable in Opera Mini, but doesn't look great, maybe that's still enough?
In any case, please note that the same page might render in different way on different devices. Especially we are working on font rendering in new clients, so actually this part might change soon (you might have a look at your page using Extreme mode in Opera Mini beta).
RE: Opera Mini can not able to attach any PhotoOpera Mini
Thank you for reporting this. This happen is other browsers as well, so there is some issue on Facebook side. I will report it to them. Do you know when this started happening?
For now, you can simply attach photos by clicking "Comment" button next to "Like" and "React" button, it should open photo upload form, which works well.
