Fine here (Opera 7.53, Linux), except that there seems to be some script
that forces it to reload every few seconds.

It's butt-ugly though.

Re: Virus? Crash Opera Every Time - Link

that is the one i am seeing here too. at first, it is just the page
reloading, then my whole windows including desktop refreshing, then it
i want to know the code which leads to it, because it may be a new hole in
Opera unknown yet. so i hope to be the first one to discover it or the first
one to let another person to discover it.

The first instance I found is (formatting altered to avoid wrap):

   function MM_reloadPage(init) {  //reloads the window if Nav4 resized
     if (init==true) with (navigator) {
       if ((appName=="Netscape")&&(parseInt(appVersion)==4)) {
         document.MM_pgW=innerWidth; document.MM_pgH=innerHeight;
     else if (innerWidth!=document.MM_pgW
      || innerHeight!=document.MM_pgH) location.reload();

 from <URL: . Some of Dreamweaver's  
standard, crappy JS code. It appears that the idiots haven't actually  
defined document.MM_pgW and .MM_pgH, so the reload always occurs.

Doesn't crash anything here - Opera 7.52 on Win XP, just reloads
endlessly unless I disable JavaScript.

Seems to be a JS problem and I have seen it a few times before. Some
JS causes Opera to go into a reloading loop but I can't find which
particular JS does it.

This page has the standard Dreamweaver crud, which whilst ugly
shouldn't causes this problem. It has two external scripts that do
nothing but document.write some ads into the page. It has one external
script that returns a 404. And finally it has another external script
that's being served as text.html. I'd guess that the last one is the
problem but that is just a guess and I really haven't spent the time
to debug it properly.

If you want to isolate the bug make a copy of the page and eliminate
the script elements one-by-one until you find which one, or which
combination, is causing the problem.
