    RPS and Opera Web Browser

    Yeah, yeah, make fun of me all you want for being one of the 4 people on the planet that uses Opera but I wanted to mention that as of a few days ago RPS started not playing nice with Opera. On the main page only the first story loads. Tested and confirmed on multiple systems - no Opera update so it must be a change to RPS.

    Just thought I'd point it out.

    I'm having the same problem, I put it down to the ME3 banner :)

    But if I refresh two or three times it will load on my main machine, although not on the netbook.

    Wow what are the odds that both Opera users would also be RPS readers?

    (I tease, I tease)

    Only use opera mini, works like clockwork. For what that is worth.

    Change site preferences to "Never allow cookies", or enable content blocking, though this means you won't see any ads. Either way, I haven't been able to get the ads working on Opera >_>.

    Another Opera user here. We must be nearly all of them.

    Sadly.

    Wow, so many replies, that's awesome, LOL.

    I fixed my issue by telling Opera to "mask as IE" for RPS (settings -> quick preferences -> edit site preferences -> network tab -> browser identification). Its the same thing I have to do for Glyde and other sites that needlessly tell me they don't support Opera.

    Nice catch that its the ME3 ad. Figures.

    Thought it was just me. It worked after a few refreshes, but it is a bit of a pain to get it working eventually.

    After experimenting with the content-blocker I can tell you it's not the banner.
    My guess would be that the flash ads are the root of all evil. They crashed Opera last year for a lot of people (it seems every Opera user out there's also a RPS reader).

    Oddly, I use Opera and haven't seen any troubles, either under Windows or Linux. I do have a script blocker on my windows system, but let most RPS scripts through. I just tried allowing everything, and while content didn't disappear, there seemed to be trouble requesting one of the scripts, so trouble may have been averted on account of network issues. (bs.serving-sys.com seems to be VERY slow to respond to most requests.)

    Edit: Hah, well that's a load of use. I disabled the script blocker entirely and sure enough, only the first article loaded. Excellent, I thought, a chance to diagnose the problem. Only when I try and load the page with the developer tools activated, it all displays just fine.

    Opera here too, and there hasn't been a single BioWare/EA ad that made me want to buy a game for the past six months.

    I haven't had a re-occurrence since the ME3 banner went on it's merry way, which leads me to the conclusion that EA hide sinister and evil things in their adverts, obviously.
