Thanks for the notice!

I just installed the update.

I installed it 12 hours 8 minutes ago. Running fine here. :-TU


I predict it’ll be another year before they fix all these new bugs that popped up after 9.27 :-\

Update: looks like I’m not the only one with a memory leak in this new version. It’s slow my PC to a craw as I type this 88).

The good news is that it seems the content filter is case insensitive again. I’ve yet to confirm this. That was the one thing that annoyed me for a long time.

Nope. Bug still there >:-D

Are you still suffering from several bugs?

I’ve stopped blaiming Opera for any problems, instead I always blame the certain website. :a0


How to remove the feed icon in the address bar? (:AGY)

Oh yeah… it’s back. :frowning:

Well, I don’t know right now. :-\


I think last time it’s in Opera:config, but I can’t find it anymore >:(. I’ll ping a certain expert :a0 on this.

I thought so too before my last post, so I checked it and searched for “Feed”, without success. :frowning:


Ok, I got the tip/answer from the anonymous expert cough you should know who cough only to realize there’s no built-in way to disable or remove the RSS icon. You need a custom user javascript file loaded (:SAD). Sigh. If I had a choice I’d disable even the drop-down icon in tje address bar ;D.

Thanks anyway.

As I collapse the address bar I notice that the history hasn’t been properly cleared. There are addresses left from yesterday. This is wrong. :o


EDIT: CCleaner won’t clear the history either. The only way is to clear manually in Opera (clear on close doesn’t work :().

History? Mine’s always set to 0 :-TU.

Mine too but still the history is remembered, no matter if I set it to be cleared on exit or run CCleaner. I can only empty the history by clicking Tools → “Delete Private Data”. >:(


REally? Well, it looks like I’ll have to check this out once I get home.

Thank you josh :slight_smile: Hey next time there is an update could you please post the download link? :■■■■

EDIT:: I just realised opera has “Check for updates” :-[

Here’s my post at Opera’s forum: Home | Opera forums


Just a thought LA… Maybe when putting 0 it is like “Unlimited”. Yes they should fix it though

That would be a new 9.60 feature since 0 meant 0 in 9.52. 88)


Ok tested. Can’t replicate your problem. Sorry :-.

Can you post a screenshot of where this “history” thing isn’t cleared, in case we’re not on the same plane? Here are my settings with regards to saved history pages.
