Using Opera to Browse Local Files: Images Do Not Refresh in Reverse
In reference to Opera 11.10 - Images and the Back and Forward Function
Originally posted by CaptainFish:
I often use Opera as a replacement for the windows image preview program. Opera can easily open a folder, and the Fast Forward (space bar button) will quickly go to the next file in alphabetical order in the folder. This coupled back and forward allowed me to easily progress through a folder of images much faster than media designed programs, without having to open a new program as well. This is great for viewing comics or screenshots.
However, after I installed 11.10 today, the back function no longer works properly with images. If I attempt to return to an image file using back, the page appears blank until I refresh. The same thing occurs when examining images online as well. Open any image, press back then forward and the page just appears blank. The same thing occurs if you go from the image to another page and press back. Before the image would appear instantly from the cache, but now it either hangs at "Document 0%" as if trying to load a nonexistent page, or it just goes blank.
I tried emptying my cache, but the issue persisted.
It might be considered less crucial if it just occured viewing local files, but having all image files not load correctly upon navigation seems like a big issue

To access the setting, copy the following line and paste it into the address bar of a different Opera tab or window and hit Return/Enter:
This will open the Preferences Editor to this particular setting, which you will probably find set at the default 1 (Automatic). See here for an overview of the 3 settings: (1) Automatic, (2) Compatible, and (3) Fast.

Apparently Google changed the HTML or whatever of its page and now Fast Forward links to the "More Google Products" page instead of jumping to the next results page. A little annoying when you're fully used to "left click + right click" to jump to next page.
On a side note, I liked that they mentioned CSS3 as part of the features updated in this new version, but Opera still needs to be even more standard and fully-compatible with all CSS3 features it has so far.

2) add " Next "=101 (quotes are part of that) under ;English
3) save and reload opera
" Next "=101
Appears on line: 43, in my copy.
I'd been meaning to find a fix for that fast forward action. Thanks to both asterixvader
for highlighting this problem, and yareally12
for solving it.

With reference to ico files stored in images folder despite settings to the contrary (show no icons etc)
in my previous post
and in answer to my own
question posted at Tamil's blog here http://my.opera.com/Tamil/blog/opera-favicons-privacy
regarding the Read Only Workaround, I provide the following solution.
If anyone else is experiencing problems with setting the Read Only status of folders within Windows XP read this: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=326549
However if you get this message, "'attrib' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."
, as I did, perform the following (must be logged on as an administrator)
> Control Panel
> Environment Variables
> System Variables
> Locate and highlight Path
>Add the following line of text (exactly as printed below) to the beginning of the Variable Value list:C:\WINDOWS\system32;Confirm by clicking OK to each request.
Now everything should be set up as it ought to be, allowing you to change your folder attributes
