I want to mark part of a text from a headline. The headlines are links.
Marking the portion of the text by holding down the left mousebutton and dragging does nothing.
Letting go translates into clicking the link.
This is a bug.
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!
Download Opera browser with:
arstechnica.com is one.
No, I haven't done anyrhing special with settings.
Uhm, in that case it must be an UI bug.
IMHO the browser ought to decide that the page is rendered, rather than just go into "I'll never display the icon" mode.
Just to be clear, with my AV disabled I havw refreshed the same page, and the behaviour is the same.
That's a fair point.
The image is just before I disabled my viruskiller. And it doesn't do a difference.
I think its a bug regression, because I've seen it before, and with an Opera update it has reappeared.
It loads fine here as well.
The problem is that Opera will display a spinning disc for eternity for some pages.
I can't rule out its AV. Just that it happened when I upgraded Opera, and has been a problem with Opera before.
The problem with the spinning disc, is that once your tabs get full, you can't identify tabs by their icon.
You end up having half of them just being spinning discs.
Also of course, it sends the message that "something" hasn't loaded. Which just is confusing.
Nah, I was clicking on close tab. I could reproduce it until I got bored.
The spinning disc is a bug regression, it was fixed, but has reappeared.
Seriously. This is a regression in bugs. Why release a new version with recurring known bugs?
Also, why do tabs sit there with a spinning circle?
