I love opera mini so much, 99% of my mobile browsing is done with opera mini but its always a problem when downloading, am happy it has been resolved. I'll like it if opera mini can stream media (youtube especially) in the near future. Great work!! Thumbs up to the opera mini team.

Hey guys - was wondering about a few features:

The mail:to script in the Share menu doesn't respond at all anymore. It didn't work in earlier versions for me, but now it doesn't do anything anymore. By the way, was there any way to make it work in earlier versions?
And the new opening of files function doesn't respond when opening certain photo's on the Facebook mobile site. This concerns photo's that previously had to be downloaded, I guess sideloaded photo's like Instagram and other sources. Any way to fix this?

On a Samsung Jet S8000.

Ornelien Mfornelien Friday, November 23, 2012 2:15:57 PM

I downloaded it on my Blackberry storm 9530 and it worked like a charm until I decided to activate opera link. And now it works correctly but it don't want to show any image at all. I also notice that when switching to another tab it sometimes show a blank screen before to show the page. It has restarted the phone 2 times.

Adeleye Oluwasegun Isaachighzik88 Friday, November 23, 2012 7:42:57 PM

Opera guys...some people, e.g me, are still using Symbian smartphones. When are we getting ours.

Opera rocks heart up

My phone is samsung E3213K and i went for download a 4.9MB video song and it took 20 minutes to download on 3G network with opera mini 7.1(new version for java phone). As per promise it should take much less time(OM 7 took much less time). Ok, otherwise 7.1 is very good for download purpose. My request now please work for streaming like youtube in opera mini. I like opera mini and my 90% browsing is through OM. Thanks opera.

2012sant Sunday, November 25, 2012 4:04:00 PM

I observe OM 7.1 take 9 minutes to download every 1MB on 3G network samsung E3213K and phone become heated when downloading.

Ornelien Mfornelien Monday, November 26, 2012 9:12:10 PM

It shows images now very good. But i just think if zoom can be better because it sometimes hard to chôose a small point on touch screen i am using blackberry storm 9530

There is no doubt that Opera Mini is the best Browser fo JAVA supported mobile. But I use QWERTY-keypad mobile. So, I have to switch the keypad again to switch in the AlfaNumeric mode after writing some text for convenient browsing.

Please add QWERTY feature in Opera Mini.

This is impressive,keep doing the excellent job

IbraheemJavalist Saturday, December 1, 2012 2:07:39 PM

Just downloaded the newer version on my BlackBerry running OS 5. I'm test-driving to see what bugs are still "unfixed".

d-wa Monday, December 3, 2012 4:01:56 AM

thank you opera mini team !
but I cannot get logged in on opera link...
the 'syncing' message takes forever and when cancelled it also abort the logging in process!
why ?

saadhasnat Tuesday, December 4, 2012 2:00:12 AM

wating for new browses for java mobiles.

d-wa Tuesday, December 4, 2012 7:51:04 AM

bug report :
if open more than 1 tab then something went wrong on the other tab while writing on textbox, it automatically exit writing and the textbox object become blank and just sit on the screen
gotta exit opera mini to clear it sad
or open new tab and write on another textbox there

don't forget about freezing issues too! the trigger is the same : error loading page
that issues apparently still happen untill now

seems like operamini going messed up when handling 'error loading page'
hope more improvement to roll out soon...

Opera should have a team strictly dedicated to J2ME development. Since android came j2me is not taken into serious upgrade consideration. And oh, how do I contact Opera Software for a partnership with our company's interest in investment? We developing MiniPlus WAP Widgets for Opera Mini j2me(Version 4 onwards)

salim lodhisalimlodhi1 Wednesday, December 12, 2012 8:34:28 PM

this is a news thats worrying the ucbrowser. That browser has a fantastic download manager in both its java and symbian formats. Just waiting for operamini 7.1 symbian with this new download manager.

Mario Bmarioxp5 Saturday, December 15, 2012 3:15:40 AM

Great I was looking forward to hearing from a new update, but it's a real pity that now Opera Mini does not display the HQ option on m.youtube.com videos =(.
