When viewing Programmers site in Opera 11.10, I get an error message box from Opera with the following text:
No registered application for this type of extension.
I tried to track down what causes it but I haven't found any clue. I run it on Windows 7 x64, I have the following plugins:
- Shockwave Flash - 10,2,153,1
- QuickTime Plug-in 7.6.9 - 7.6.9 (1680.9)
- Adobe Acrobat - 18.104.22.168
- 2007 Microsoft Office system - 12.0.4518.1014
- Silverlight Plug-In - 4.0.60129.0
- Windows Live Photo Gallery - 15.4.3508.1109
- Media Go Detector - 22.214.171.124
Update: I finally found out what causes it. Pages at Programmers try to load
house-webfont.ttf, the URL is
http://sstatic.net/programmersmeta/img/house-webfont.ttf. Server response has
It looks like Opera does not know how to handle it.
On another computer with Windows 7 and Opera 11.10 where this message does not appear, I see it requests
house-webfont.woff which has
Content-Type set to
Disabling all the plugins did not make a difference.
Update 2: I have resolved this problem. It was connected with left-over setting of previous installs where I had ReGet installed and ReGet configured Opera to intercept downloads. The behavior of Opera changed over time… which now caused this error to be displayed.
I changed Download setting in Opera so that it displays Download dialog for
application/octet-stream type. And custom fonts returned to Programmers pages.
