So I click on Help >> About Opera and bah ! I get the about Opera page in the same window.
I click "Back", to get the home page of Gmail and sadly my email has not been saved !
Thanks Opera !
The only fix for me is to chose "Open Image" and then "Reload" with image's url in the location bar. PITA and I really want a fix, because I much prefer to develop in Opera first. I hope I either stumble on something, or Opera issues an update soon.
This is the first upgrade I have not liked - perhaps I don't like change. No experience with the problems others are reporting, but my installation/configuration might be less complex.
Went back to 9.27 and will stay ther until most agree 9.5x is good to go. Thanks for keeping a topic area for Opera.
Also, I've noticed that CSS images (such as a background-image used for hover states) are not called from the server until they are needed for rendering. But that introduces a delay on the first use. That used to be an IE problem, but it's been fixed. I got out of the habit from building image preloads into the page, but I might need to start doing it again. Ticks me off - waste of bandwidth to add that to every page.
