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.

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.

Re. my post: Cannot Delete bing Search!
Cannot Delete bing Search!
Since upgrading to version 11.10/win, I cannot get rid of the bing search in the drop down list.
I've used the appropriate Manage Search Engines option and restarted Opera, and even replaced all default Search.ini files with my own and made them Read Only. But it keeps reappearing. Have never experienced this scenario with previous versions.
Also, significantly, the bing search does not appear in the Search.ini file.
Opera have always liked to push their search options on their users, but now it seems they have hard-coded this into the program rather than an editable Search.ini
file as in previous versions. This is the sort of forced 'choice' one would expect of a company like Apple. - It would appear a change in the file format of Search.ini
has created this anomaly. READ FURTHER DOWN.Update: I'm not alone
• Cannot manage my search enginesUpdate: Replication
• Have been able to replicate this issue with Opera@USB v11.10 as well. Update: Official Confirmation of sortshttp://my.opera.com/community/forums/findpost.pl?id=9182362
Searches are protected in 11.10 because several applications have started hijacking the searches when you install them. If you edit searches from within Opera, you should be safe.
By deleting, or commenting out, the Options
section of one's Search.ini
file, everything appears to be editable, as before.
