Default [RE-SOLVED] Opera problem (FreeBSD] after v10 upgrade-updated >> mini howto included.

SORRY for the lots-of text. Included, a nice port to preview installed fonts, and a rudimentary howto for an obscure use of jails by a newbie. As well somewhat of a FYI that the ports tree (FreeBSD) revamped its font infrastructure which fixes some things
font-manager (iirc) may be the item most of note in this thread....

II can browser fine with Opera still [mostly] but cannot interact with its dialog. ONLY the lowercase 'a' shows. For instance, the 'graphics' button (on off toggle) has [ a ] and the 'open in background tab' is [ _ a a ] ...

So the prompts and browser action are only by 'what the 'a'
probably resolves to...

Even the about:config choices are a bunch of 'a' and no other text nor numeric values visibly selected, though the items to choose are in another font and are visible.

I rebuilt it with/without qt4, gtk2, and the problem persists. NO menu nor 'preferences' choices to speak of that are a change from what used to be.

This happened once before, but the 'a' and 'e' were also visible. And was fixed by some random crash and restore...


installed otter-browser (opera -qt5) and it has the exact same problem. Other than that,
it is a nice browser.
Anyone using opera in linux, netbsd, pcbsd, or openbsd as their usual browser?
