om5 java goes blank when trying to connect to the internet on my O2 xda stellar. i prefer the java apps to the windows media platform because of better page rendering speed. kindly fix this prob in d next update.

Vis is only java version OM5 update?

João Davidpiroxicam Wednesday, May 5, 2010 1:19:15 PM

It looks like this corrects the Opera Link bug also. Now I can activate Opera Link and have my search engines correctly synchronized and also now I can manually type web addresses after enabling Opera Link.

Problems with daylight savings time have been fixed.


Ngamer01 Wednesday, May 5, 2010 1:27:58 PM

Looks like the bug that stops you from adding/modifying search engines in Full-Screen Edit is still there. But anyways, thanks for the update, Opera Mini team! =D

It still misses a "shift" key, until now there's only "capslock".
And drag and drop speed dials and bookmarks.

What in the blue blazes is a silent update???? Does it affect iPhone users? why is te update not available in the App store? What are you not telling us?

Charles SchlossChas4 Wednesday, May 5, 2010 9:18:33 PM

There was a small update for Opera Mini on the Iphone about a week ago, you can check in itunes or on the app store on the phone

Ive been having this problen with my Opera Mini 5 and 4 lately, whenever i post a reply into any threads on forums, i get redirected to a white / blank page. I hope this problem gets fixed. ^^

Opera pls modify the search box so that i can add my own search engine instead of always using google or wikipedia. Also i should be able to modify my speed dial. Also do something about the memory usage. I use nokia 3120 classic. My opera always crashes with a message on low memory. Also the speed of opening a new page is very slow as compared with 4.2 which is fast.

"Opera pls modify the search box so that i can add my own search engine instead of always using google or wikipedia"

You can use Opera link to snyc custom searches and same with the speeddial

Try to long press on any search field you see on Web. You should get option to add a custom search. 'Long press' means you move the cursor/pointer over search field, then press and hold down for few seconds to open context menu.

Same thing, try 'long press' on speed dial.

what does 'silent' mean?

Manuel Antonio Monge Gómezmanuelmongeg Thursday, May 6, 2010 7:58:51 PM

This version still thinks I'm on a touchscreen. I'm using an iPAQ 510 (keypad only) I tried the winmo beta version but it only types numbers, this make both versions unusable for me. Opera mobile works fine but is incredible slow and memory consuming compared to mini, even with turbo mode turned on.

content in folding problem. Shows
the contents of the missing drop.

Pallab DeIndyan Friday, May 7, 2010 10:37:28 AM

I suppose that by Bengala you mean Bangla or Bengali.

paulgarb: "What in the blue blazes is a silent update????"
ronaldklop: "what does 'silent' mean?"

A "silent" update is just "patched" update of the current release. To put it another way:
Buggy Opera Mini 5 final + silent update = Fixed Opera Mini 5 final

Silent updates are different from regular updates. A regular update to Opera Mini 5 would either Mini 5.1 or it's successor, Mini 6. But either of those are still a ways off from happening.

EDIT - Whoops. Quote boxes make this post huge. So out they go.

This is *major* news. Why has this been released as a silent update? Well its major for me because the form submission issue has finally been fixed! This means I can now log in to websites and participate in discussions with full confidence!

Still waiting for the WinMo version to catchup though..

Glad of the update but there's a bug with Opera M5 folding lists of items into [+] in mobile view: e.g. viewing my tags on delicious.com clicking [+] unpacks only the first 4 items - there are many more I can only see by switching to desktop view...

hirak99 Saturday, May 15, 2010 3:36:03 PM

Is it for Blackberry only? For I do not see a new version - my mobile prompts if I want to replace v 5.00(32) with 5.00(32). The post says for *Java* and Blackberry, though.

David Kinlay Daverogk Saturday, May 15, 2010 8:28:01 PM

It is a pity not to be able to have the desktop view by default

No, its applicable for most Java capable phones. It updates fine on my Windows Mobile - when I downloaded it the JVM asked me if its OK to update from the old version. Perhaps you're already using the new version?

In OM -> Settings -> Help -> About, check the version number. Mine says 5.0.19693

thanx bt want next version plz.

David Kinlay Daverogk Saturday, May 29, 2010 7:55:40 AM

Have you tried putting cursor over picture/image and long press on ok button . This brings up option of saving,on my phone anyway. Using Sony Ericsson W715

full site of orkut isn't opening in opera mini since more than 2 weeks why? Is it a opera bug?

Rafael Luikrafaelluik Wednesday, July 7, 2010 4:06:11 AM

@Subodh Google said it's aware of this issue on orkut help forums (doh they're blocking Opera!).
