One day I downloaded Opera and thought it was pretty good until I went to login to my college's portal. It won't even let you login, it instantly throws up a "Browser may contain a security risk. We recommend you download the latest versions of IE, FF, Safari, etc."

That's not an issue with the browser. I came upon that same problem with my banking website that only wants people to use IE, Firefox or Safari.

To resolve it, you go to the website, right click on a blank area of the page and select Edit Site Preferences. Go to the Network tab and under Browser Identification you can select to mask as Firefox or IE. You can also remove automatic redirection if it is still an issue.

As long as there is a lock to show SSL authentication is secure then there isn't an issue.

I know its not the browser, but since that's a major thing I go to daily, I can't be bothered to "mask" it every time. The portal is also across multiple servers, once you login you switch between 3-4 different domains/servers(all of them throws out Opera).

But I am gonna look into that bypass and see what I can find.

Update: Nope. Doesn't work. I get to the login page, but it'll say incorrect password or ID(yes the id/pass is correct).

It's very rare, if ever, that a website has an issue with Opera. I only managed to find one, my banking website, and it was resolved by masking it as another browser.

You can try the Opera support forums here. I am sure someone else might be able to provide better direction.

That is most likely caused by the programing only supporting the three other browsers and not opera. My mother is a parts manager for a Chrysler and a ford dealer both of there online "connect" sites are internet explorer only and are programed that way.

Yes, some websites are programmed for IE specifically. They will use ActiveX plug-ins sometimes and only IE has that.
