Opera has gone nuts!

My design is looking great in IE6, Firefox, Netscape 7, and Mozilla 1.4, but when I load Opera 7.54 it goes nuts. It seems like it loads in a different screwy way each time, and hitting refresh will sometimes cause the page to load properly, sometimes screwed one way, sometimes screwed another way. I'm not seeing anything like this in any other browser. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

I've seen instability like this in Opera, often with CSS layouts. Sorry a "me too" response is the best I can do, but I really don't have a solution. Fortunately the Opera crowd is mostly techs, who should understand what's going on and will know how to deal with it.

It can't be a problem in my design if F5 changes it right?

I've seen something like this when using both javascript and frames combined. Browsers seem to be multithreaded beasts and the order in which items load cannot be predicted.

If refreshing changes it, and if the other browsers you cited are getting it right, then I'd say it can't be your design. At least, it's not an error in your design. There might be some aspect of the design that's triggering a bug or instability in Opera, but that's sure not the kind of problem I'd like to try to track down . . .

This is weird. I thought Opera was the browser that's so great it's worth paying for....

You didn't mention if the page validates or not. If there are multiple errors, then each browser has its own error handling rountines. Opera's may be getting confounded in a different way.

Also, if javascript plays into your layout, Opera's javascript support, though getting a lot better, does have a few holes in it.

Strip the code right down until you have the lines that are causing it. Then post them here. Otherwise there's not a lot we can do.

Ok, I'm going to get it validating and if that doesn't fix it I'll strip and post.

The crazy portion was absolutely positioned and I fixed this by adding "left:0" and "right:0". I hope this doesn't piss anyone off (i.e. IE).
