The problem - after upgrading Opera to 9.5, the "emtpy trash" choice on right-click in the feed panel has no affect. Under "all messages" I can already see that thousands of feeds have built up, but there's no effectiveness trying to use the "emtpy trash" choice there, either.
I'm of course hoping that the next release will fix this problem for me - but I'd sure like a work-around for the immediate moment, too. And a "clean install" would involve a time investment that I do not welcome.
As much as I love the Opera browser, the 9.5 version has introduced more bugs than I'm used to seeing from this company.
That feeds panel are you talking about? There's only a mail panel, is that the one you're talking about?
Could these have been from before the upgrade? If yes, then just clicking on Trash, selecting ctrl+a and delete should take care of it.
No, I configured all the feeds over again when I set up this new computer. It was a good way to trim down my bloated RSS list.
When I click on Trash, I can't see any of the thousands of deleted messages, not even if I change the dropdown opton in the main area to say "Show... Trash". However, when I activate "Show... Trash" for any individual Feed, all the msaages I deleted are still there.
I encounter the same problem described here with Opera 9.51. The command "empty trash" just does not work at all. The only way I can get rid of all messages in the trash folder is by deleting them manually (highlighting them all or individually and pressing the DELETE button on the keyboard).
In other words:
1.) I get an e-mail in my "Received" folder
2.) I delete it (DEL-button on the keyboard or context menu after right-click), thus moving it into the "Trash" folder
3.) I right-click the trash-folder and say "empty Trash" - and NOTHING HAPPENS!
Here is my work-around:
4.) I open the "Trash" folder and highlight all messages (CTRL-A)
5.) I press the "DEL" button on my keyboard, and the messages are deleted permanently (=Trash folder is emptied)
When I press "SHIFT-DEL" on any msg in the Inbox, it will get deleted permanently as well, that one works well.
My system is an MS-Windeos XP machine with Opera 9.51 running on it.
And I am an Opera fan!
Anybody from the developers around to comment? Or any ideas if this is a bug in Opera or something wrong with the installation?
Thanks in advance!
Your approach didn't work for me because the Trash folder would not open, nor would "All Messages". However your post got me experimenting again, and I did find something that worked.
Go into each newsfeed individually
Make sure that "Show >> Trash" is selected
Choose "X Delete Permanently"
A PITA for sure, but at least I dumped all those old feeds. Thanks for kicking me into more action.
I had to set up one email account to get newsfeed to work, but that account is set never to poll the mail server. I also think that's a poor set-up for the feed reader, but what'er you gonna do - it's what we've got.
