Upgraded to Opera 10.63 - now I can't log in to Twitter

I understand that websites often ignore Opera support or at least push it to the back burner. But it's frustrating when something used to work and an "upgrade" breaks it.

This Twitter log-in breakage with Opera 10.63 is some kind of ajax javascript thing I assume. Nevertheless it ticks me off big time. It's not like Twitter is some backwater of the web.

So who's to blame, Opera or Twitter? Sounds like Opera to me if it worked in an older version but doesn't now (though I suppose if Twitter was doing something that was explicitly version specific, then Twitter would be to blame).

I just upgraded to Opera 10.63 and had no problem logging in to Twitter.

Thanks for that, Fotiman. Now I'm even more confused, but at least I know what the problem "isn't".

I'm now suspecting an Opera widget I tried to install right after the upgrade. That install didn;t go well ;(

Well, this was very strange. All day I had to use Firefox to log into Twitter. Then Microsoft force-fed me the monster Windows update, I rebooted the computer - and all of a sudden I could log in with Opera. I never did get around to dealing with that Twitter widget!
