Opera Browser Question
« on: February 16, 2009, 06:56:37 pm »

In opera I suddenly lost the ability to view video plays in BBC only.
With other websites there is no such problem. The only way sofar to fix it is
to delete the .opera directory and start all over. This then creates another
problem, I get advertisement in my operamails.

The place on the website where the player should be is just a white blank.

Any opera expert around who could tell where the bug with with BBC could be
and which file controls to see ads or not.

I have a back-up of .opera from last December where I did not have this BBC
problem. If I copy that directory back the BBC proble is still there. ???

This was now fixed on its own with the installation of opera-9.64. BBC flash videos do play again
except they show now a commercial first which then makes it a no go for me.
BBC must be hard up.

This commercial is put by ad.doubleclick.net.
Is there a way to have it blocked?
