In one of the Opera threads, it was said that the two-line Enter is supposed to be a feature, and that shift-Enter skips only a single-line. I don't know what garbled text problem you're talking about though. Screenshot?

I'm no longer able to reproduce the garbled text problem because I told someone about it. Obviously.

However, two-line enter by default is an incredibly retarded "feature," and I wish to disable it rather than rewiring my muscle memory to use shift-enter. How can I do so?

That the point? Cause I just disabled that, hoping it kills it.

Say you're scrolling down a page with page down. It goes one screens height at a time, right? Let's say there are 3.5 screen heights on the page. You start on 1, press it once and you're now on 2. Press it again, you hit 3. There's only half a page left though, so you can only go down half a page. What it does is show a bar where the bottom of the last "page" was, the bottom of your old view.

I don't know what use it has, but that's how it works as far as I am aware.

Took me a second to figure it out. Basically its a marker to indicate the bottom of a page before you scrolled. So move yourself to the top of a given page and look at whats at the very bottom. Then scroll by flicking the mouse wheel or something. If you see that marker, it should indicate the bottom of where you just were.

In my opinion its completely useless, so I'll probably turn it off.

Edit: beaten... but w/e keeping my post.
Edit2: Actually not beaten, I think Casao has a different idea of what it does.

Well I think it's awesome. I hate having to backtrack and find out where I last read, only to find out it was about one line from the bottom.

Is there a keyboard shortcut for re-open last closed page? I can't remember how I set it up, I think it was from a few Opera threads ago. It was bound to ctrl+alt+z but there doesn't seems to be an option in shortcuts.

Just Ctrl+Z works for me, you could also try Ctrl+Shift+T (or whatever it says under Window -> Closed).

I'm not Steve Nash.

I've always known about this "feature" but thought I might mention it here:

If you start a mouse gesture on a tab for any window (active or inactive), it'll perform whatever function on that tab. If you want to refresh a background tab, you can hold right-click and move up then down. Or closing a tab you can hold right-click and move down then right. You can also go back/forward with the mouse button rocking gestures too.

It's useless most of the time, but it's kind of useful in selecting/closing a bunch of tabs without activating them.

I'm still getting many random issues with Facebook, GMail, and SA. All of these sites I tend to frequent on a regular basis. Opera tends to do things to piss me off, but having pages fail to work properly is just really obnoxious. An example is posting to someones wall on facebook, it doesn't show up. So I mashed the enter key thinking it was just slow and it posted like 7 times. GMail often gets stuck between inbox and compose, which is just a hassle to refresh.

Opera is still my preferred and default browser, I just wish they'd fix the little things. I also think all my problems stem from the javascript engine. Maybe they sacrificed stability for speed? Who knows.

Why is it that people don't know how to not double post? Hit submit once, and if it doesn't do anything, hit refresh and it will probably be there. This isn't directed at you specifically, since you're obviously having recurring problems here, but generally speaking, browsers hang every once in a while, it happens. That poo poo reminds me of people that double click everything, including things like hyperlinks.

It's true. Mouse gestures spoil you and don't go to any web browser without them, lest you find yourself trying to close a tab without the cursor anywhere near the tab.

I think it's kind of interesting how mouse-focused you guys are while I'm completely keyboard-focused. Want to switch tabs? Ctrl-tab. Close a tab? Ctrl-W. Open a new tab? Ctrl-T. Reload current tab? Ctrl-R. Submit a post? Tab, space.

Note that those are all left-handed shortcuts, so you can use the mouse to click links or go back & forward (thanks rocker gestures! the only ones I use) and use these keyboard shortcuts at the same time.

Also just goes to show how awesome Opera is since it supports mouse-focused and keyboard-focused styles perfectly

It's really just personal preference. Web applications are generally very visual, so I'll use the mouse. But when I'm at work, using QuickBooks, or Word, I'll use the keyboard for everything and just tab/shift-tab all over the place.

Edit: VVVVVVVVV

Yeah, one of the things that bugs me about Opera is that the Fast Forward feature doesn't always work. A lot of the time that I try to use it, it brings me to the last page, or the next thread (depending on the site).

Stupid question which has probably been answered at some point. In older versions of Opera, and IE, you could hover your mouse over a link, and it would show what that link is in the Status bar. I'm running 9.62 and can't figure out for the life of me how to do this. Did they just take that feature out, or what?

What he said, yeah.

Opera toolbar customization works by dragging stuff (like the items in the Appearance dialog) to the toolbars and dropping them there. My guess is that at some point you right clicked the "status field" part of the status bar and hit "remove from toolbar" or some config otherwise corrupted itself to do the equivalent.
