I have updated Flash Player from version 14 to 188.8.131.52 (NPAPI).
Youtube worked with version 14, but now it does not work. I just get the black box where the video is supposed to load.
Any suggestions that does not involve Opera Blink?
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!
Download Opera browser with:
For Opera 12 you have to select Flashplayer for Firefox NPAPI at Flashplaer download, see http://get.adobe.com/de/flashplayer/otherversions/ .
I suspected I would have to choose the Firefox version for Opera, so thanks!
I have seen more intuitive options...
Here is a screenshot of the install options for Adobe Flash Player.
It offers a PPAPI version for "Opera and Chromium", and this makes me suspicious. This may be incompatible with Opera [B]12[/B]?
[QUOTE] Another reason that 12.14 was preferred by some over later Presto versions was that the default search engine could be changed at will and stuck, whereas IIRC the later versions kept shoving Google at you!
I had forgotten about the search engine, that's one reason. I very much value the freedom to choose search engine, and customize everything.
@sgunhouse: I do have automatic updates turned off, so I understand 12.14 is the best Presto version. I know Pesala uses 11.64 and he has his reasons. I think he use other versions too.
The biggest online risk is drive-by downloads, and I don't know how vulnerable Opera 12 (and 11) is regarding this threat. But I hope extensions such as Ghostery and Adblock will stop dangerous scripts.
I sometimes use 12.02 when I read plain text pages, because 12.10 and newer are incredibly slow at finding plain text. Nobody seems to understand the reason for the severe plain text slowness but it's a problem nonetheless.
All right, thanks for your input leushino. But far from all security upgrades are major, so other things may count more. For example, 12.14 is often preferred over 12.16 because 12.14 has less issues with website compatibility. As far as I can remember, there was no big difference in security between 12.14 and 12.16. I don't know about 12.17.
I remember that parts of this community recommended 12.14 as the best Opera version, and I know why 12.14 is preferred over 12.16. But I can't remember anyone ever mentioned [B]12.17[/B]. I'm not at home so I don't have access to the shortcuts to earlier threads here, and I can't find it by searching. I don't find the advanced search options by the way. Maybe they don't exist anymore, I barely recognize the forum.
To anyone who are about to write a reply recommending "Chrome-Opera", please don't. I'm not interested in that sort of help. What I need help with, is to [b]choose between 12.14 and 12.17.[/b] Thanks.
I enabled js globally and extensions began to work. I don't know which domain is responsible for this. Can I not keep js disabled globally, enable js for sites that needs js, and still use extensions? Perhaps by enabling js for some domain that extensions communicate with, but I don't know what domain that is.
Strange, very strange. As I have said, all three of the extensions I have installed are working no problem. I have even tried loads others over the course of using this version (12.14) and not had problems with them either. My previous extended use (USB) version was 11.64, and had no problem with extensions on that version.
Have you tried a clean USB install ?, though I have used this same Opera profile over many years, just copying the folder over to the new version as I upgrade.
I installed about seven versions of Opera as stand-alone installs. The versions don't interfer with one another. I guess this would be "clean" installs.
The settings page for the extensions seems to be located at wuid-[long number here], but enabling js and everything else on that wuid "domain" doesn't help. By the way, all the settings pages are completely empty. I have now tried extensions on the stand-alone version of 12.16, same problem. No extensions will work.
