...so, this condition persists ...the xfinity website showing the tv listings and allowing access to the DVR & services now freezes opera completely every time while it has worked fine for years previously ...any idea what this is ?

I *think* most should all be saved on the Archive.org web archive. I have to say I wasn't expecting them to evaporate while the Presto version was still current on Linux.
I believe you're correct... the settings page is definitely there, as are the linked pages on it (and thanks to QuHno for suggesting it). But it's just sad that a web archive is the only safety net for something like this, though I'm certainly glad it exists. Opera never gave any warning I ever saw that they were dropping the data from their own sites; some of the pages even worked fine from browser bookmarks after the redesign of the site began and page links to them evaporated, only to suddenly have them completely disappear without any warning or links later on. I kept thinking Opera would certainly keep a record on its own servers with links from its new site pages, as an Opera archive. It's a sorry testimony for even low-cost support of a browser version (12.16) Opera still offers as a download and workaround for users who want it instead of Blink Opera. I wonder how many Old Opera users with settings questions will ever think to try an independent archive site or view this thread...
Some (but not all) users have reported problems with 12.1x 64-bit Opera's stability and such, but not with Opera 32-bit versions... perhaps this is something similar. Those reported 64-bit "issues" are the reason I've remained with 32-bit Opera on my own 64-bit Win7 installation. Often times when something like this occurs, it's some kind of obscure driver-conflict issue that varies from system to system or software suite to software suite. In any case, you can assume that 12.1x will not be updated to intentionally fix this or any other performance bug-like behavior... from here on out, Presto Opera is only being security patched if needed.
