No Awesome Christmas Gifts for You

No Awesome Christmas Gifts for You, Sir

Now here is an interesting bug (Opera 11 Beta).

Type in the address bar:
awesome christmas gifts

Press Enter. Boom. Error.

Type:
christmas gifts

Works fine. Either it’s a bug or I was a bad boy this year and Santa actually exists.

      Are you sure first letter is not capitalized?

  • Merser

    I have no problem with the awesome christmas gifts. The phrase is opened in a search engine.

    • everybody

      Same here, but cool bugs never works for me :(

  • daddylo

    Not confirmed, may be the bug does not exist in Vista.

  • Mancho

    Can’t duplicate here. XP SP3

    does not work for me. win7, 32
    Opera 11 beta

      Now _that_ is confusing. What do you mean? This isn;t exactly a feature unrevealed. Does not work because it crashes too on your PC, or it does not work since it performs a regular search? ;-)

    “opera turbo” give me the same error, in fact most two word phrases in the form “opera *” give me this error.

    Filed as bug:
    DSK-320686
    Multiple word search activation fails when starts with “opera”

      Can’t replicate this one either.

      Opera Turbo disabled here, oh well, at least someone receives an error as well :-)

      • max1c

        Only happens if you type in this “http://awesome Christmas gifts” not just “awesome Christmas gifts”…

  • kxp

    considering that most of us can’t replicate this bug it must mean that You’ve been a bad boy this year :D

    • http://www.favbrowser.com Vygantas Lipskas

      That’s probably the case :/

  • Joe Fagundes

    Either the bug doesn’t exist, or it only happens under very specific situations.
    Using Ubuntu 64 bits, tested with and without Turbo.

      I can assure you that this error is not a child of my imagination :-)
