I'm trying to use Geekzon and Opera, and everytime I load up the website, the whole browser locks up and crashes. This is the only website that actually does it. There is obviously something in the code you guys have which is screwing up the web browser - could someone please do something about it?

More informatin would be wonderful. What version of Opera for example? I am using 9.26 and 9.5 and it works perfectly. Perhaps a web filter, ad blocker or anything else that is causing the problem?

Occurs on both Opera 9.5 and 9.51RC2.

It doesn't occur all the time - sometimes it loads, then other times it doesn't.

Right now, it is stuck on 'downloading elements 5/6' and the whole thing has frozen! it doesn't happen with Firefox 2.0.14 (on Solaris) and yet it does it on Opera.

I've gone into preferences, I've disabled everything in the content, the website loads ok. I enable javascript, refresh the website, and the whole browser frezes up. Obviously there is some javascript code being used which is screwing things up.



Ok, I've disabled Javascript, and now everything seems to be working well, be it with limited functionality.

idlearts: works fine with opera 9.24 on xp



And yes, that is Opera on Windows XP; I'm not running Opera on Windows, I'm running Opera on Solaris, and this is the only site that causes this sort of behaviour.

Which would imply something is wrong with the browser, not the website. Perhaps you should file a bug report with Opera

Undecided and that is the reason why I am chatting to this 'website guy' so that he can provide a work around in his code so that the whole browser doesn't lock up.

I can't even think on how to identify something that is causing this specific browser to lockup on this specific OS. As filterer says, if this is a fault with the browser then it's better to file a bug with them.

First I don't have Solaris installed to test it. According to Google Analytics Solaris was used by 0.02% of the visitors to this site in the last 30 days. Opera was used by 3.09% of our visitors in the last month. And only four out of 715,000 visitors used Opera on Solaris in the last month - you are one of them...
