Does this happen only once you've opened Opera, or is it like this from the moment you type 'startx'?

I don't mean to be rude, and I'm not joking, but check your background image. Has someone played a joke on you by taking a screenshot of these webpages and then set them to your background image? What happens when you access the internet with othe browsers?
