Cannot list plugins

    How do I list plugins in the current release of Opera? The URL opera:plugins now tells me "This site can't be reached". Is there any other way to list the plugins?

    Hi @concretable, Opera only supports 2 plugins: Adobe Flash and Widevine (a DRM plugin to play protected video content like Netflix).

    You can change Flash settings by going to Preferences -> Websites -> Flash.

    You can see any other plugins (at the moment only Widevine can be there) in opera://components.

      Why should I have to go to extreme measures just to get information about the Flash plugin? I wanted the whole version number, and now information about that plugin is hidden. I had to open the Pepper Flash plugin package and read info.plist just to see the whole version number.

        I had faced the same problem recently as opera://plugins is no longer working. If you want to check/update your flash plugin version, you may use the link: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html You will be able to check your flash version and if needed update it.

          That page does not give the whole version number. The whole number is 25.0.0.171, and I want to see the entire number. Now, I need to locate the plugin on my hard drive, open the app package and read info.plist just to read the version number. I should not have to go to extremes like that just to read a version number.

          I can read the whole version number from settings in Safari and in Mozilla browsers, so why not with Opera?
