One thing I have found with the latest 10.52 beta [build 3347] on Windows, is that sometimes (while on Lockergnome, especially) I will lose the ability to scroll the window up or down with the mouse cursor inside the page, and must instead go to the scroll bar on the right of the browser window. This is a bug I have reported twice, and yet I see no acknowledgement.

Also, on some downloads, the filename is not being passed to the Opera download window, so when the user tries to put a name in, so as to continue the download, the browser crashes. This happens only on certain pages, and as yet I have not determined what the code is that is causing the problem, but it is extremely repeatable.

The bug list above is showing things I have not experienced, but I would think that many would be complaining about the inability of Opera to install on XP 64. I’ll have to try this out. Still, the fix is moving to any version of 10.52…

Onward. I certainly would like to see the Chrome/Flash plugin/updater solution emulated soon in Opera. It’s in the best interest of everyone involved.
