i use mint 17 cinnamon.
yesterday i installed the opera browser. all was going well and i was adjusting it to suit me personally.
suddenly all the text on/in the browser disappeared!
now where there were words things like: -- 12 / ___ __13 appear. so in bookmarks for example its mainly empty except for the odd dash and number here and there.
i have no idea if it was me who did this by checking or unchecking a box in 'prefererences' or not? i mean, what would be the point of the browser looking like this?
i've used opera for years and i've never seen this happen before.
obviously i cannot go back into any menu and see if i can fix this as the menus no longer have words in them!
i decided to uninstall it and start again. the trouble is everytime i re-install it, i literally get back the particular browser that i was actually using. complete with all the bookmarks and such that have been replaced by various symbols, numbers and blank space.
so i don't get a brand new, fresh opera browser. mint just keeps bringing back the old one.
is there a way to get an untouched, new opera browser that i can then use?
i really dislike other browsers so i'm hoping someone can help? although i think i've had it!
