I have this problem as well, though a little patience and it usually unlocks and continues.
I found on a Ubuntu thread that Opera doesn’t do a good job of finding java. In preferences you can open a window and verify your java install. If the location bar is blank you will have to manually find the jre file Opera needs.
This is the problem with mine and so far I have been unable to locate the correct java file to make it run correctly.
the usual location is /usr/share/jvm or /usr/share/bin/ but none of the files in those locations check out with Opera.
I guess I could look and see where Firefox looks for java and try that. I will and report back my findings.
NB* plugins in firefox does not list java so that was a no go. Only thing left to do is keep searching.
This is the flash plugin crashing. Opera has a timeout of somewhat 30s
after which it simply kills the plugin after not responding and than
runs smoothly again. Firefox totally crashes in this cases. However, it
seems the bug in the flash plugin is triggered way more often in opera
than in firefox.
Since Adobe got flash into it’s fingers, it totally suxx on linux…
Hard but true.
i’m not sure if you’re seapking of plugins i have added or defaults ones ? i did not add anything (yet)
I don’t know if there was some java but it pretty well might be for i open the soft with aprox. 10 sites open.
Well, shall i just wait for opera to be active again then ?
Then the fox is faster
→ Also somthing else disturbing me in opera :
i’m looking for a convenient way to begin opera with many sites , as i do very conveniently in firefox, when i use a saved session the pb is that it gives me sites that are not refreshed.
I need something like a ‘refresh all sites of the saved session before start’ option
in opera it looks like you can restore a session, many sites , restore from a directory, and even refresh each 5 seconds each page, well, pretty well, but i need to refresh the sites before launching opera, or while launching it

I don’t have any problems with java, just flash. If I open sites with
flash content (which is nearly each 2nd site today…), opera might
freeze because of the flash-plugin freezing. Mostly this happens not at
the beginning of the flash, but somewhere during playback. I use a
flashblocker now which fixes the crashes but you have to click on each
flash to be played.

Try to disable the flashplugin and check if you still get freezes. If
not, blame Adobe to fix their closed-source software.

I like this behavior. I don’t know if there is an refresh upon start
checkbox somewhere hidden in the settings. Try to enter opera:config in
the addressbar and see if you can find an option.
If you use only a few “critical” website (online banking, for example), and if you know your way around, you will be able to see if it’s a “phising” website. And the anti-phishing security still allow you to do some “manually” checks.
You can find some Flash blocker with Google : Try “opera flash blocker”
So far, i just open the soft, go to preferences and to advanced and then opera freezzes
Which shortcuts are you using ? : opera standard ? standard for unix ? opera 9.2 compatible ?
i’ve tried with f5 and shift in opera standard but can’t see anything in the box, is this normal ? it looks like the F5 key is not recognised

Doesn’t matter. Use the one which is highlighted.

What box? If you click on the “New”-button, there should appear two
empty boxes where you should type the things I wrote earlier.

Close all tabs before that. If you can’t do so, remove ~/.opera/sessions/*

it was the left box, then the right one came up with what i wrote (reload allp ages), but after that i could not find my new shortcut, nor use it .
yes i know google, but my comment on google is that too much info kills good information
on the link :
i got the link you gave, but i do not want to copy, paste, create dirs and cpy there and paste here, then cpy anothe place and paste in a different place and the like , it looks too complicated if opera works like that for all its plugins (??)
i mean : just for the sake to try if this plugin is gonna ease my soft i need to do all that (!) where’s ergonomy and users transparency ?
Well i know i know i’m lazy , but the fact is that firefox gives all this just clicking on a plugin icon (flaskblock : authorize, click and there it comes, try it, good : keep it, no good skip it, my froends find it complicated, just imagine if i tell them about opera, i’ll have to explain them all these things to do , and i lack time…)

Should be listed at the bottom of the Application list.
