Taking another step in its relentless march toward total crapiness, LJ has suddenly quit working with Opera, or at least with the version of Opera I've got. The site never did get along well with Opera, but now it refuses to get along with it at all. I'm pretty sure it isn't the browser's fault, as it still works fine with every other website I've visited this evening. I think this sudden change may be related to Vox. I set up a Vox account some months ago, but I've only used it twice. A couple of weeks ago I tried to open a Vox page and Opera crashed. It has continued to crash every time I try to open Vox. Now trying to open LJ crashes the browser in exactly the same way. 6A has been doing various things to make the two sites more compatible, and I think they might have brought some bad Vox code into LJ.

Anyway, I have to use Firefox for now, which I find an asspain. I miss my handy Opera spellcheck feature, for one thing, and on the whole I still find Opera both faster and more stable than Firefox almost everywhere. I've made a support request, but I'm not expecting much from it. Opera users are a small percentage of LJ users (obviously, as LJ has never fixed problems we've had with the site for years.) I'm probably stuck with Firefox now, which means my drafts will be autosaved, but I'm going to miss Opera.

Oh, look! LJ spell check suggestions!
