Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Sites like ebay and even superuser stop working properly when I use opera 11.00. Menus stop working everywhere from ebay to godaddy. Hovering on a menu item doesn't expand it, no sub menu slides out. This makes a large number of very popular websites unusable. Am I right in assuming this is a javascript issue?

I use opera for the turbo feature (I have tested opera with and without turbo so it's not turbo's fault) because I'm on mobile broadband until I get my phone line sorted out. Turbo helps me save money, as well as allowing me to surf at a sane speed. Is there a firefox or chrome equivalent to opera turbo that doesn't cost money?

I'm using Opera 11.00, build 1156.

No there is no in-built alternatives, but you can use Ziproxy for example. You need a host computer to run it and make your browser connect to the Ziproxy as a http proxy. (Just ask a tech-savvy friend who owns a VPS or a server. I did that, had a full-fledged gbps Ziproxy server on a brand, dedicated rack-server.)

If this won't work out, try using Opera 10.xx. You can get older versions here. Just install the latest one. Back then, I've been using version 9.xx without any problem. Ever since they rushed out the 10th series, Opera's been REALLY , REALLY buggy. I mean.. REALLY.

(I can run a Ziproxy for you maybe. Depends on how much do you surf the web. :))

Can you be more specific? I cannot reproduce the issues you're describing - the menus slide out just fine. Of course, make sure JavaScript is turned on via Quick Preferences > Enable JavaScript. If you can point me to specific site issues, we can look into them (I work for Opera).
