We were pleased to hear that last weekend, more than a dozen Opera friends and fans gathered in the heart of Paris for their very own "Opera Café." From what we gather, it was quite a varied afternoon. Friends took the opportunity to catch up, talk about browsing, exchange tips and tricks, and nibble on hors d’œuvre. There was even a demo of Opera Mobile/Mini on several different tablets and phones.
Apart from being longtime Opera users, what most of those in attendance had in common was a technical background and a fondness for the color red (especially on t-shirts!).
In some cases, they were continuing conversations that had started on the forums. In other cases, the discussion concerned favorite features, past and present, as well as speculation on what is to come in our next release.
If you speak French, you can find out about more events like this, as well as other news and views, when you follow the French Opera users' blog. While you're at it, check out the Francophone Opera Wiki too. We're always very happy and proud to learn about volunteer initiatives like this.
If you're an Opera fan who wants to organize a meetup in your part of the world, please let us know!

With the latest Opera Desktop launch, we had the pleasure of introducing a new Facebook Speed Dial extension. What makes it good? It lets you easily know if there are any new likes, comments or messages in your Speed Dial.
Speed Dial for Facebook is a popular extension with more than 350,000 downloads. Perhaps this could be the most popular extension ever?
Do you want to translate this extension to your language? Download this text file and translate the strings. You can send me an email with your finished translation.

Since our latest Opera release this week, some of you have unfortunately experienced problems with a popular webservice from Google: Gmail. We're working hard to fix this issue automatically for you, but if you are still experiencing problems with Gmail, then try one of these two quick fixes:
Quick Fix 1: Delete your browser history (and close tabs). Restart Opera, and Gmail should work as normal.
Quick Fix 2: Go to opera:config, find "Use Spdy2" and "Use Spdy3". Uncheck them. Click save and restart Opera.
This error is triggered when you loose Internet connection while Gmail is still running. When you connect again, the service has trouble continuing and when you close the tab and re-open it, you will not be able to login again.
The 413 error message many of you experience is unfortunately not only exclusive to Opera 12.10, and can also happen without the SPDY protocal in other browsers, but Quick Fix 1 works there as well.
Please let us know if this works for you, or if you are experiencing difficulties.
