Topic: SimpleViewer freeze problem in Opera browser

Hello,

Was viewing the demo gallery in Opera 26 and came across a problem.

When i right click on 'any' image to open in new browser window...the SimpleViewer page interface freezes. The image however opens up in a new window.

SimpleViewer is working fine in Firefox 33.1.1 however.

Details of the system in use:

OS: Windows 7, 32-bit
Browser version: Opera 26, 26.0.1656.24
Flash version: 15.0.0.239

What seems to be the problem? And what is the fix?

Cheers,
Sattva

Re: SimpleViewer freeze problem in Opera browser

Thank you for reporting this problem.
It seems to happen only in Opera (I have tested in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari) and only when opening a new tab/window (e.g. clicking the 'Open Image in New Window' button or right-clicking and selecting 'About SimpleViewer 2.3.2...').

I have tried the following combinations:

Opera 26.0.1656.24 and Flash Player 15.0.0.239
Opera beta 26.0.1656.20 and Flash Player 15.0.0.239

Opera 26.0.1656.24 and Flash Player beta 16.0.0.233
Opera beta 26.0.1656.20 and Flash Player beta 16.0.0.233

When I use Flash Player beta 16.0.0.233, everything works as expected (in both Opera 26.0.1656.24 and Opera beta 26.0.1656.20).
There appears to be a bug in the current version of Flash Player for Opera which looks to have been fixed for version 16.

You can download and install Flash Player 16 from this web page: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer.html
Choose the link that says "Download Flash Player for Opera and Chromium based applications – PPAPI".
