Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When I view a question on Stack Overflow, normally I see all vote, comment, and edit activity 'live', without needing to refresh the page.

I recently installed Opera, and noticed that this doesn't work. I don't see any updates unless I refresh.

I think Stack Overflow uses WebSockets, right? Opera has WebSockets disabled by default, but enabling them didn't fix it. I tested with http://websocketstest.com/ and it told me WebSockets might work for me. The only thing it showed a problem with was the Port 443, SSL part, where nothing worked.

I'm running Opera 12.02 on Windows 7.

How can I fix this? Is there a configuration setting in Opera I can set? Or is this a limitation of Stack Overflow?

SSL isn't supposed to work.. – animuson Sep 13 '12 at 17:01
    
@animuson What does that mean? That SO doesn't use SSL for WebSockets? – Kendall Frey Sep 13 '12 at 17:07
    
They don't use SSL in general. I'm just pointing it out since you mentioned it. :) – animuson Sep 13 '12 at 17:08
    
You could just use another browser. – senilesage Sep 13 '12 at 17:41
    
@senilesage I could, but I like Opera too much. – Kendall Frey Sep 13 '12 at 18:01
    
Any news on this one? – user196260 Sep 20 '12 at 18:10
    
@Baz Nope, nothing that I know of. – Kendall Frey Sep 20 '12 at 18:12
    
@KendallFrey It's a shame. Really like Opera and can't really use it with SO... – user196260 Sep 20 '12 at 18:13

It seems this issue has been fixed. I now see updates in Opera.
