    Sounds great! Installation advice?

    I'm a newbie and have been wanting to try Opera. After I download the file, how do I install it? Should I download to my PC first? Do I need to extract it before moving files over to my Q? This is my first time installing a new program to my Q, so any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    TO make the job earlier for you, just download the MSI to your PC (save it as a backup), open it, and the installer will take care of the rest. :)

    It doesn't crash at all. In fact, I'm posting from it, now.

    Is this a newer version than the beta that's been out for a month or 2 now?

    I haven't seen/heard anything about Firefox. Frankly, I'm more concerned with Macromedia Flash becoming integrated with a browser on Windows Mobile 5.

    I installed it to my sd card. I don't know if thats the reason for the problems I'm having or not.

    1. Will not pull ie bookmarks or let me manage.
    2. Won't let me set a new homepage and is hard to nav the screen in which this is done.
    3. My home screen has the small icons on the bottom and the opera browser shows them unless I put it into full screen mode.
    4. Don't have an image mode to allow for saving pics off the web.

    btw: its Opera 8.65 (2493)


    I just removed it and installed to device with same issues. wtf

    Yes, it was released on June 1st and expires October 1st, at which point Opera will release either another beta or the offical version.

    See my post above

    Why not? I believe Opera Mobile costs $25.

    Are you sure you installed the Smartphone version and not the PPC version? Mine is 8.65 (7720).

    I believe it said smartphone. will check again.

    I looked at the file on my phone and it says:
    opera_wm5_ppc_865b.cab

    Is this the wrong one?

    After clicking the first post with the link I realise it is a different filename. I will download and try.

    thanks scott.

    Yes. It even crashed while downloading the new 8.65b which expires in october. I had to use IE to download Opera.

    I reported it as a bug - their response sounded a little surprised.
