Opera browser failing to load pages :(

  GibsonSt19 11:53 16 Oct 2004

Morning, I've been using a paid up version of Opera for a few weeks now, and generally loving using it, however starting yesterday no pages seem to load, the status bar just shows them in progress but nothing ever appears anymore.

I've tried uninstalling Opera and reinstalling, however this seems to make no different.

IE is working fine.

If using XP click on START then on SET PROGRAM ACCESS AND DEFAULTS. Check that use current browser is selected. Also check that the box with Enable Access to Opera has a tick in it.

That was all set OK. What next my friend? :(

Just a thought, something simple like a firewall blocking Opera?

I thought that it could be the firewall, however it was working a day or so ago, and nothing has been altered in any way.

I've also just noticed that the pages ARE loading, but at approx 90 BYTES per second!!!

Still very confused.

I had this problem some time ago with Opera, as I remember I reinstalled Opera which sorted it. If you should reinstall & have bookmarks in Opera save the 'opera6.adr' file which contains all opera bookmarks.

The Opera support guys advised this was something to do with one of the pages I had open in a tab. Closed them all, uninstalled, reintalled, and all is well now.

Opera really is a great browser.
