RE: Opera 36 not loading pages properly for over a week
Thanks for the helpful reply; sorry about delayed response, I was trying out something based on your idea and seeing how it is panning out:
I would recommend first trying with a new clean profile and see if the problem is still there using that.
Your last helpful reply involved a profile problem, so I thought I'd try that approach again; I got a month-old copy of my profile, renamed the current one to an-old version and tried that (is there a weakness with profile stability in 36?)
It has improved, but not cured.
Particular remaining problems include log-in pages (with security?) which just never load, and some eBay pages, where the top photo refuses to load (ironically, the other pictures do).
No such problems on the same pages with 12.18 (which is still working a treat!)
I was a bit reluctant to try a blank profile as I'm under the impression that so much is lost in doing so (passwords & who-knows-what-else, no?)
I could just keep going back in my backups and trying those profiles.. or am I misunderstanding what might be lost in a new profile (or indeed, how I invoke a new one)
Or is there a way to make a new one based on an old one (would that repair the issue or just duplicate it?)
I assume you're actually now using Opera 12.18 BTW, 12.8 doesn't exist!
Doh, quite right, missed the "1" via a typo.
