I'm getting some strange behaviour with Opera (9.23) and textarea entry in geekzone when replying and posting.

The end result is that paragraphs appear malformed as whole lines get wrapped, hard to explain, but it seems that instead of space characters being inserted as I type, no breaking spaces get insterted instead causing lines to not wrap at the EOL but somewhere in the middle, as you can see on this particular line...anyone else getting this?

I've searched Opera forums and can't seem to find if it's a browser specific bug...

Next question, who uses Opera?

Interesting. I am using Opera Browser 9.24 to reply here and I haven't seen this problem before. Having said that the rich text editor was disabled for Opera until last week. if this problem continues I will disable it again for this browser.

Based on our stats not many people use Opera to browse Geekzone.

This is a copy of the source, if you have a look you'll see there's a whole horde of  's instead of spaces, very weird behaviour:

I am not sure why this is happening - looking at TinyMCE forums they don't have anything like this reported. You can turn off the rich text editor by visiting your profile and unchecking the option. Then you will be back to the old plan HTML input area.

I'll upgrade to the next version, 9.24, although the change logs don't say anything about it.

I really like Opera over other browsers, feels lighter to me, shame it's not more widely used but in saying that i've not had any problems using it apart from this nbsp; problem!!!

I use Opera 9.21, and I haven't posted since the rich text editor was re-enabled. Though at the moment none of the formatting button graphics have shown up.

The main problem I have with Opera and GZ is the page appears to be set to format to the total width of the browser - including the panel on the left - rather than the visible page width. So to see the whole width of the GZ page I need to turn off the panel (F4) or scroll the page horizontally. CJS, do you get that? (It doesn't happen with any other website I've seen)

Oh, I've just hit your editor problem - line break before 'GZ page I need to...' above. Will be interesting to see how this displays.

Oh well... It looks like I should disable this again then.

I tested it with the latest Opera browser and didn't have a problem, but if it causes trouble for older versions I might disable it now.

Cheers

Mauricio, I'd be interested in testing it a bit further to see if we can work out why it happens. (Not that I've posted much recently.) It doesn't seem to cause any problems with the display.

(Can you enable it but set it off by default for Opera users? Perhaps allow it to be enabled on a per-post basis?)

The icons not displaying isn't related to this - more likely related to the fact I've got about browser 20 windows open...

I can't enable or disable on a user's basis - If I enable it everyone using Opera will use the editor by default...

Well i've upgraded to the 9.24 before you turned it off and I wasn't getting the problem, but in saying that I don't know exactly how to reproduce it.



@TT I haven't been getting that other problem you brought up, although in saying that, this particular page has that nbsp; problem so forces the screen to scroll horizontally anyway

Now that you mention it, that's what's causing it for me too - now. I have looked at other pages and they're fine. Perhaps I hadn't noticed only some pages had problems before, or perhaps it's because I have just upgraded to 9.24 now too.

I work for a large new zealand website and we have had user reports of this same issue with our site when using Opera however it has never been something we have been able to replicate.

We dont use any rich text editiors like tinyMCE or FCKeditor, just plain <textarea> boxes.

If the problem was fixed by updating to latest version, can we please enable the rich text editor for Opera again? Disabling the rich text editor for all users of a browser seems a bit extreme for such an isolated bug (in an outdated version :P).
