Stop executing scripts in this page

Opera has a check box on the alert box that allows you to stop executing scripts on that page. That is very handy for example when the script runs into an infinite loop.

But: how to get the script running again? Reloading the page doesn't help. Moreover, any page that is opened in the same tab will not have JavaScript executed. There seems to be no way to get scripts running again in that tab. The only 'solution' I've found is to open the page in another tab. That of course is not very handy. Is there a smarter way?

If Opera simple shut JS down for that tab then all you need to do is press the F12 and then the press 'j'. That'll turn scripting back on. Then you ca do a quick control-r to reload.

Opera's got a nice shortcut layout.

Thanks, but F12-j toggles Java on and off, IIRC since version 8 ;) Anyway, F12-v doesn't turn on scripting either if it has been turned off from the alert box. At least not on my system: Opera 9.02, Windows XP SP2.

That's funny, it's still f12-j for me and I have 9.02 as well. It is Linux platform though. Java is f12-a...go figure?

Oh well, it was a thought.

I browsed the forums at opera.com, found some relevant threads but no other solution than closing the tab and opening it again:
Ctrl+W
->
Ctrl+Alt+Z
(on Windows).

Thanks anyway, birdman.
