Browser Problems: Opera (in General)
September 24 2005 12:51 PM EDT
Since Opera became a free browser, I've installed it on my OSX machine and been thrilled with it. It's blazing fast, and I love some of the special features. Here's my problem:
When I fight with CB2, the left frame doesn't refresh after each fight, so the player I just killed isn't marked with a "*". This makes it impossible for me to rush down my list by hitting "C" enter, "C" enter, "C" enter.
Any ideas as to why this might be? I've turned off all cache option under preferences, forcing the browser to go to the site each time, but still no solution.

Let me install and verify behavior so we can make sure it isn't just something computer-specific...be right back...

Dang it, "Home" kicks me back to login (among other things) so I just lost my message.
Yes, no asterisks, But it sure runs fast, faster than Firefox Optimized for G5...
I have cookies enabled, but a lot of left pane actions (even just going "Back" kicks me back to login and refreshes chat. You having that problem, moniker?

I also use opera and i get thrown to login-screen if i click home. However disabling the chat and running it in seperate window killed this problem.
Rushing through the list with "down, enter, down, enter..." has worked fine for me.
Then i got this problem not being able to change the show pbp. When i put it to "on" and fight someone it has reverted back to off no matter what. Put it on with mozilla then fight once and it's switched to "on" also in opera.

Hm, that didn't work for me. Wand on or off, chat or no chat, Home sends me back to login page. That is with acting as Opera, Mozilla, and IE, so far...

But MAN everything else rocks with this browser! The zoom is AMAZING (no cuttin goff lists, no bunching of text...it is a _real_ zoom). It is fast, small, loads quick... Thanks for mentioning it, moniker! Even with the issues, I tihnk I am still going to have use for this bad boy...

Opera is/was the best browser for camping. As sutekh said, it has the best zoom feature and it's the only browser that also magnifies the checkboxes when you zoom (less misclicking on boxes in a rush). Opera is also the fastest browser I've ever used. The built-in mail feature is also awesome.
Fighting on CB2 using opera has never worked. I reported this back in january and was pretty much told "tough luck."
