    Same bugs as 11.62 regarding cookies, despite the fact that I repeatedly filed bug reports for the issues. It's sad.

    Really?? You mean the 6 release candidates didn't get it stable enough? :D At least they've caught up with other browsers on a few features.

    bloody awesome! :thumb:

    it looks like the 'pre-rendering' issues i have been using all these years have been fixed.
    i've been waiting a long time for Opera to fix this before i could start using it.
    but i'm a patient man. lol

    unfortunately, there is no addon like NoScript but you can add a "Enable JavaScript" button anywhere you want in the browser.
    that's not a new feature but it's very nice to be able to toggle js on and off on the fly.

    i think we have a winner! :)

    What are the specs of the machine on which you tested Opera? Does it have a separate graphics card or integrated graphics? My poor laptop doesn't do HWA :(

    LOL, I like Opera a lot, in fact I was using it as my primary browser for a long time, but there are some show stoppers, like the failure to delete all cookies and failure to comply with some site preferences (also related to cookies). So right now I'm using other browser(s) until they decide to fix the annoying bugs :)

    You can use this link: https://bugs.opera.com/wizarddesktop/

    What do you want to submit ?

    Re. cookies. I just go to tools>delete private data and have ticked the 2 cookie
    related boxes viz. session cookies and all cookies. Then check tools>advanced>cookies - they should be gone, and if you find one there it can be deleted from there. Not a show stopper for me.

    I admit that the question of new cookies that are not deleted is a bit of a nuisance, for instance if I enable javascript on my very first visit to some site that cookie will be shown in tools>advanced>cookies despite deleting private data. If you delete it from there it won't manifest itself again.

    it's an almost 5 years old Acer desktop duo-core with a PCI Nvidia card.

    not exactly a speed demon compared to today's machines. lol

    HWA sort of still experimental ..
    I have decided to switch it off - seems to interfere with java applets.

    Tip. If you want to test Opera with a clean profile for troubleshooting, in terminal enter: opera -pd /tmp/test_opera

    There is an extension like NoScript. You can get it at https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/notscripts/?display=en.

    tnx m8!

    i have tried it.
    it's pretty lame actually and it doesn't really work.

    i emptied the whitelist and it still allows things like gstatic automatically when you visit Google News, for example.

    anyway, i just created an "Enable Javascript" button on the toolbar that i can toggle on and off. :)

    Not deleting cookies from Cookie Manager is a problem if you want to delete only some cookies ("Delete all cookies" from "delete private data" works as it should). The thing is that they disappear from the list only to reappear when you restart Opera (I can't find a rule for the cookies that show this behaviour, because some of them are deleted properly, some not).

    The other problem is more serious, because if I decide that a site is not allowed to set cookies and I tell it so in "Edit site preferences", the browser keeps storing new cookies and even send them back to the site :)

    JR has explained the difference several times already before ;) One oldish answer is here.

    Since this question comes up frequently when Opera portable is mentioned, JR may like to link to the latest post he has on the topic whenever he mentions Opera portable.

    Well it does say experimental. But while I have a 64 bit system I wonder if I would be better served using 32 bit version?

    moontan, you're welcome! If someone is using the PA Platform, the PortableApps' Opera, Portable Edition will work nicely with all the platform's features.

    Also, keep in mind that this edition as stated on the page: Opera, Portable Edition is packaged with permission from Opera Software ASA. Opera™ is a trademark of Opera Software ASA has the full blessing of the company.

    Now, regarding Opera@USB, this latest Post from John T. Haller, explains what happens with that version. Just FYI.
