    For the last day or so, the back arrow in my Opera has been working almost unfailingly on the first and occasionally the second click.

    So, what has caused this change? In addition to the Xenforo update, I have checked for Opera updates thru the Help toolbar and though there is none, the operation of checking silently updates Java use in Opera.

    Whatever the reason for the big improvement, if not total solution, if I don't come back you can assume the problem with Opera is no longer an issue.

    Confirmed it's been fixed by Opera? or not?

    No it has not been fixed in the stable release (11.62)
    I can get the kind of behavior bobcat did sometimes but actually right now in Win7 it's taking me 3 presses of the back button to go back...

    One clicking now is getting me back out of threads!

    Sorry to keep revising my findings, but occurrence of the problem is intermittent and unpredictable. I don’t know if my last optimistic message was connected with a temporary disabling of Facebook integration as reported by Per Hansson here:

    But I have been watching the behavior since my last post, and the current situation is:
    1 The problem has not disappeared entirely
    2 It occurs much less frequently than when it was first reported
    3 As a rule it takes 1 click, only occasionally 2 or 3 clicks to move back
    4 Occurrence is unpredictable and intermittent

    The above always with current stable Opera 11.62 and XP SP3.

    Lastly, I keep checking Opera regularly for updates, and as soon as one is available I’ll install it and report the results.

    OK, here I am again, hopefully for the last time, as the news is excellent.

    For the last three days the Opera 11.62 back button has worked first time every time. Consequently, the problem can now be considered well and truly fixed, unless…er…whatever you did guys, don’t undo it! ;)
