In my review of the HTC Tilt2 from AT&T, I mentioned how much I love the Opera Mobile browser.  There’s just one problem, however: when I try to browse on a wifi network, Opera wouldn’t work, instead giving me an error message indicating that it couldn’t find a proxy server.

The good folks over at XDA-Developers Forum have a solution:

Apparently, Opera is configured out of the box to use a specific proxy server, which is only available when the phone is operating on AT&T’s data network.  If you try to connect through wifi, your phone can’t access the server, so Opera won’t work.

Here’s how you fix it:

  1. Open your Opera Mobile browser.
  2. Type “about:config” without quotes into the address bar.
  3. Scroll down until you see “Proxy.”  Click on it.
  4. When the Proxy section expands, uncheck every box and tap “Save.”
