Why can't I start a bounty?

I want to offer a bounty on my question on Stack Overflow.

However, I can't seem to do so. I encounter a problem similar to the one described in this question: Why can't I start a bounty?

I follow the same procedure as in the pictures shown there.

My OS is MacOS 10.7 and my browser is Opera 12.01 (same for Safari 6.0).

Please, help me to find the reason and start the bounty.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

here is the original question:… – klm123 Aug 12 '12 at 15:35
isn't is suppose to tell me what is wrong if my question doesn't satisfy the requirements? – klm123 Aug 12 '12 at 15:35
I can see the "start a bounty" link. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Aug 12 '12 at 15:37
And what does it mean? I can see it too. – klm123 Aug 12 '12 at 15:39
Assuming this is a browser thing for a moment, could you try clearing your cache and try again? – Bart Aug 12 '12 at 15:40
There is a close vote on the question. Not sure if it prevents you from starting a bounty. – nhahtdh Aug 12 '12 at 15:41
Bart, i did it. Doesn't help. – klm123 Aug 12 '12 at 15:42
nhahtdh, "close vote" means vote to close the question? I can't see it... – klm123 Aug 12 '12 at 15:44
@nhahtdh: It does not. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Aug 12 '12 at 15:45
I checked Safari browser too - it doesn't work either. – klm123 Aug 12 '12 at 16:02
So it's exactly the same as the other question? You go through all the screens, but the "Start Bounty" button on the last one does nothing? – Ryan O'Hara Aug 12 '12 at 16:04
Yes. The last window just stays where it was. – klm123 Aug 12 '12 at 16:08
So have you looked for errors in FireBug or the Chrome developer console or some other JavaScript console? – Ernest Friedman-Hill Aug 12 '12 at 17:11
I understood Chorme developer console is for Chrome users, not Opera. I will try to install FireBug, if you are advicing me this. – klm123 Aug 12 '12 at 17:16
If all is exactly the same, shouldn't we vote to re-open the other much more detailed question, and close this one? – Arjan Aug 12 '12 at 17:27

I have not done a thing, but now, 6 hours later it works. I have started it finally. Mean while 3 hours ago it didn't work.
