Pandora radio sound problem with Opera

I've been using archlinux for a week or two now and am using the opera web browser, and I like to listen to the pandora radio website ( in case you don't know what I'm talking about). The problem is whenever the browser is doing anything but idling the sound cuts out. Open a new tab, switch tabs, scroll down, reload a page, click a link, etc. and the sound cuts out for a second, it's pretty annoying. Though I'm not sure if this is a problem with flash or alsa and I don't know how to find out. I've done a pacman -Syu so everything is up to date, so that isn't the problem. Thanks for any help

I just ran an experiment listening to Pandora on Opera and opening complex HTML mail. I get the same interruptions that you experience. However, I cannot replicate the problem using Firefox. I would guess that opera doesn't buffer as much as Firefox.

I know that there are a lot of neat things about Opera that makes it your choice of browsers but consider having Firefox on board even if just for Pandora.

And thanks for the opportunity to experience Pandora Radio. It is a remarkable site.

Sorry for the slow reply. Thanks for confirming my problem, I feel better knowing it isn't something I am doing wrong but a bug with Opera. Until a new and fixed version of opera or flash or pandora comes out I'll just have to use another browser.
