I guess I'm not having the best luck with browsers today. I just opened up Opera to write up a Bugzilla issue on this bug, and I stumbled on a new bug in an Opera dialog box. This one isn't nearly as bad, though, and is actually pretty funny:

Opera dialog box that says 'A new version of Opera, Opera 90.1, is available.  Would you like to upgrade now?'

They must have made some serious leaps and bounds in their feature set to jump ahead 81 versions! That sounds like something Netscape would do!

Just stumbled upon this site when searching for a screenshot of the upgrade dialog.

I'll quote Tim Altman for the reason behind this:

"It's a work-around for a bug in our upgrade notification system."
