Opera 9.5 Tweaks ?

There are a lot of opera 9.5 tweaks here and there, but never all in one spot. So instead of going through multiple threads i decided to condense it all into one thread. None of these are my ideas so i would like to thank the PPCgeek community for these useful Opera tweaks
After going through all the opera:config menu items there seems to be a lot configuration that not everyone here knows about.

I have moved my cache to the SD card only because i recently obtained a 8gb class6 micoSDHD. So not everyone would need or have to change the Cache Directory4 location
I currently run Opera 15445 with Flashlite 3.1 to enable flash

Within the Opera browser type in "Opera:config" in the url
scroll down until you see "User Prefs"
within user prefs look for these options.
a "*" indicates addition instructions, which will be shown below.

Automatic RAM Cache: enable it
*Cache Directory4: change to "\storage card\cache"
First Update Delay: Set to 0
Maximum Allowed Tabs: Set to whatever you want. I put 9
Smooth Scrolling: enable it
Turbo Mode: enable it

Scroll down and hit save. Restart Opera (Just in case)

*Cache Directory4
In opera menu
====> settings
====> Advanced
You can now change your cache to your liking. I set 10mb (10000kb).

After this, At least to me and others. Opera will rename your SD card folder from "Storage Card" to "Storage Card2" and then create a windows folder called storage card.
This will disable any programs you may have installed onto the card. Close opera, sync to your computer, Explore your phone, erase "Storage Card" folder.
After a soft reset, the actual storage card called "Storage card2" will change back to "storage card". your programs should work now.

Default location is "\Windows\Opera9\cache"

Block Ads within browser
Adblock, should decrease browsers load time (I haven't tried this. but it looks cool). Be warned that this may increase opera startup time.
http://wmpoweruser.com/?p=1605


To Default to non-wap browsing
in "User Prefs"
UAProf URL: Clear the URL
Default is "http://www.htcmms.com.tw/gen/victor-1.0.xml

UAProf URL Enable: disable

After a restart this make webpages start in desktop view and not wap. I tried this in google and nytimes.
The problem is, webmail may not work anymore. I could not check my hotmail account after that. So i changed it back.

opera:config only shows configuration upto handheld
For people who have their opera:config page that only show the configuration options upto handheld.
Goto "help" on the "opera:config" page. Then click on the opera:config link from there. This page will show all the options. I don't know why it happens.

Re: Opera 9.5 Tweaks ?

i am curious about the best tweaks for opera as well - i am running stock, and increased my tabs allowed # through the opera.ini file, i also have disabled (by making the timer ridiculously long) the automatic g-sensor rotations - what other good tweaks are out there?

If you don't like the rotation, then this might be the opera for you
Opera 15445 in QVGA and VGA - Cab and OEM


For tweaks this is what i have done.
in the browser type in "opera:config"
All these are under "user prefs"

Turbo mode: checked
smooth scrolling: Checked
tab increase: 7
Automatic Ram cache: checked
First update delay: 0
Cache Directory4: changed to my sd card location example "\storage card\cache"
then i would set the cache size to 10mb in the settings menue


This made opera load so much faster with much less checkered boxes.
I updated to 15445 but i still cannot get the zoom slider or flash to load.
I still cannot find a away to load tabs in the background

I hope these tweaks help.

Edit: Installed flash lite 3.1. Youtube now works
Now all i need its the scroll bar and tab in background

Re: Opera 9.5 Tweaks ?

I just changed the settings that pkny recommended. It made it a lot faster. The only thing that was weird is that it made my Iris Browser, Batti Settings, and Skyfire all not work. So I went to reinstall the 3, and when I chose to install to Device or Storage Card, it now said Storage Card2. Reinstalled tho, and they all work now.

Re: Opera 9.5 Tweaks ?

Nice... I had tracked down two of those myself, but the turbo/ram cache seem to help a lot as well! Thanks.

I could not find a couple of these options. What menu is the tab number under? Also could not find first update delay. Last I could not find the field where you change the cache size, there are many field that would appear to be the one so which one did you use (and what menu it under).

Thanks for the advice here

Re: Opera 9.5 Tweaks ?

I did the same thing and edited my own notes for use. I havent founf the tab increase either- But I did walk through the fields and have this to share-
in the browser type in "opera:config"
All these are under "user prefs"

Automatic Ram cache: checked
Cache Directory4: changed to my sd card location example "\storage card\cache"
First update delay: 0
smooth scrolling: Checked
tab increase: 7---( unable to find)
Turbo mode: checked

then i would set the cache size to 10mb in the settings menue" Opera -> Menu -> Advance"

I take no credit for this- thanks PKNY!

Hope this helps

Re: Opera 9.5 Tweaks ?

Ok - I screwed up something -

After making the above tweaks - the storage cache being the last thing (named it 'Storage Card\Opera Cache\') I went back into 'opera\config' editor & can only scroll to the 'handheld' section.

Can go further than that. went to the help screen & can't scroll further than user prefs.

Any reason why?
