When working with Opera 11.60 and Privoxy, pages, images, etc will randomly get truncated. It just started with the Opera upgrade, so it might be a bug with Opera, but when I stopped using Privoxy, I couldn't get any pages to fail. Note: 'stopped using' means configuring Opera to not go through Privoxy, simply unchecking 'Enable' on the Privoxy menu doesn't do it.

I attempted to capture data with Wireshark, but the pages I caught were gzipped and I can't be certain that they were good. I did notice that they were http 1.1, if that makes a difference.

Only one other person has mentioned on the Opera news group that they are having an issue like this. They too are running Privoxy.

NYTimes.com seems especially bad to me, but it happens on all sites including SouceForge.
Privoxy 3.0.18.
Opera 11.60
Windows 7 and Windows XP (I have two machines, both have the trouble)
No other proxy software. Windows Firewall and MSE on both machines.

    Thanks for the report.

    Please reproduce the problem after enabling logging as described at http://www.privoxy.org/user-manual/contact.html#CONTACT-BUGS and provide a log file.

    If you can make the pcap file created with Wireshark available, that may be useful, too.

    I've attached a log file for a truncated page. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/12/22/magazine/the-lives-they-lived.html?hp#view=dennis_ritchie

    Opera's source view goes along until:
    "100000001233615":{count:93, commentsEnabled:false},
    "100000001233630":{count:57, commentsEnabled:false},
    "100000001233632":{count:318, commentsEnabled:false},
    "100000001233655":{count:441, commentsEnabled:fa

    and we see it just stops in the middle of the word false.

    I'm apparently not understanding the log file, it looks like it grabbed the page twice, with the second grab bad.

    Please additionally add "debug 32768" so we can see the data read from the network.

    New log file added with debug 32768 turned on. Truncated page is http://www.nytimes.com/pages/travel/index.html which dies at:
