    I'm having this odd problem with Opera9.01 and 9.02, hadn't ran it in ages, then checked the about part and displays opera in all strange characters... see attached.

    Removed opera's preferences used app zapper to remove all traces just incase *note this was happening before I used app zapper*

    Checked opera under another profile and all seems fine its displaying in english, but what stumps me is if I type in the address bar it would type normally. If I go to type in the search box within google's site the wrong letters would be getting typed. A becomes E, Q becomes U and so on. I've checked opera's language and its set for english.

    Opera's paths:
    Preferences: ~Library/Preferences/Opera Preferences/Opera 9 Preferences
    Saved session: ~Library/Preferences/Opera Preferences/
    Bookmarks: ~Library/Preferences/Opera Preferences/Bookmarks
    Opera Directory: ~Library/Preferences/Opera Preferences
    Cache: ~Library/Caches/Opera/Cache
    Mail directory: ~Library/Aplication Support/Opera/Mail
    Plug-in path: ~Library/Internet Plug-Ins/
    User CSS directory: ~Library/Preferences/Opera Preferences/Styles/user

    Note these have been removed.

    Removing everything of opera and reinstalling has no effect under this profile...

    Is it only Opera? Perhaps it's a font problem, in which case Resolve Duplicates from the Edit menu of Font Book might help. :)

    It's only Opera thats having the problem under one profile... can't be a font problem as its working under another profile fine and just checked its not duplicate fonts.

    Removed Opera anyway as I never use it.
