I am unable to start a bounty using Opera Mini, despite the fact that pretty much all other JS/AJAX functions work.

When I choose to start one, the mini-wizard appears, as it should, but I cannot select "Next". It simply 'refreshes' the page with the mini-wizard still in place. I also cannot select "cancel", or the "x" at the top-right of the mini-wizard.

Can you see client side errors? – Shadow Wizard Apr 21 '13 at 7:33
There are no errors - it simply does a quick refresh (or redraw, as the server does not make any changes to the page when I click "Next"). – Mike Rockett Apr 21 '13 at 7:57
Confirmed - however I'm struggling to understand how Opera expects us to debug any problem on this brower: there is no real javascript console, and javascript is run on a server... – Sklivvz Apr 22 '13 at 14:58
Weird indeed - it's just interesting how other JS actions work, but this one does not. I know that, when I need to add a comment with Mini, I have to press "Add Comment" twice, but that's natural as you have scripts that count the characters left. That, I can understand. But this, there;s just something wrong. It's just not registering a thing. and I'm surprised they don't have a debugging facility. I, too, have had problems with my apps on Mini. – Mike Rockett Apr 22 '13 at 15:05

Unfortunately at the moment we don't support Opera mini.

Reason: a combination of amount of work required and amount of visitors using the browser.

The FAQ entry doesn't explain why though, it just links to this answer. Wasn't it because Opera Mini's proxy doesn't support gzipping? Wasn't there a Meta answer from Jeff to that effect? – Pëkka Apr 22 '13 at 16:23
