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?

  • @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.
