Opera displays a local file page at 85% of screen width but
the same page online displays at 60% of screen width.
Other browsers show the 85% width online or local.
In any case, width liquidity for mobile is ok.
Why would online differ from local file (only on Opera).
Yes, I've rattled Opera Help and forums and checked my
uploads of html and css.
[Please don't go ranting about my web page -- it's working
fine for me.]

p.s. "abandon Opera" is a permissible response.
1) Two entirely different development streams.
Some help pages you may find, are for the old version.
The development streams exist to make designing
the browser easier, not to "preserve feature set".
2) A browser-wide scale setting. This is something a user
might adjust, if they just bought a 4K screen.
3) Site-specific preference recording
(perhaps you used control-scroll to set the
scale or something, on a previous visit).
I doubt modifying something in CSS Style is
going to override every option the browser has got.
A local file would be a "different site" than a
file fetched from your web server.
Some browsers use a multiplicity of database
files, and the entries are tied together
in all the files. Trying to edit just one
database file (like delete a web site from it)
will leave "leftovers" in the other files.
One editor I tried to use, didn't really understand
the schema, so it could not really intelligently
alter things. But what it did allow me to do,
is change a boolean in one of the rows. So if
you don't delete entries, but just change a
parameter for a site, that's a little bit safer.
Adjusting a site can be safer than deleting it.
It's a web browser - be careful what you wish for...
