Opera v10 and v11 Users

We have found a bug within Opera version 10 and 11 desktop browsers which is resulting the inability to complete loading of some pages. Please note this is a bug within an older version of Opera desktop browser. We highly recommend all Opera desktop users to upgrade to the latest Opera browser at www.opera.com which is currently at version 18.

We will try to implement a work-around within the next few hours but Opera users should upgrade regardless.
