    Hi,

    When data saving mode is enabled, when I go to m.facebook.com, I am redirected to m.tabor.ru (a russian website). What the hell ? Has Opera servers been hacked in some way ? Everything is normal with data saving mode disabled.

      I can't edit the first post, so here are some others informations :

      • It seems only http://m.facebook.com/ lead to a redirection : https doesn't
      • With others browsers (like Chrome), no redirection
      • I tested with two others smartphones, Opera was never installed on them : redirection when using Opera + data save mode

      About network : tested with 4G and Wifi, with differents ISP

      About phones : one Huawei on Android 5.0, one Huawei on Android 6.0, one Honor on Android 7.1

        Can confirm, m.facebook.com redirects if used without Https.

            Same here - 2 different Androids on two different networks. Selecting from recently used redirects to some Polish auction sites.

            Opera 42.7.2246.114996 here and I still can't reproduce it, typing m.facebook.com or www.facebook.com leads to Facebook page.

            Even using http it redirects to the secure page.

                  Has there been any solution to this? I still can't open facebook, and I'm thinking on going back to Chrome already

                  It was reported? I'm still not facing such issue.

                    Have you tried cleaning up your browser? Cache and temporary files? Maybe you have some adware plugins that redirect specific sites?

                      Hey, gabrieljonathan123, it is Android app - no plugins there. Yet, it happens to a few people, so it is not user-specific issue. My wife came complaining that this happened and when I checked on my Opera - it did happen, too. Since I never user Facebook, for me it was not for sure caching issue.

                        Whoops! Confused it with different mobile browsers functionality, Opera indeed does not have plugins on android. Try cleaning up cached files and cookies, maybe even doing a Malwarebytes scan.

                          Having The Same issue on Galaxy S5. Android 6.0.1 no root.

                          First I suspected some Kind of DNS poisoning. When this First happened, my xmpp Client could Not Connect properly, supporting My theory. But it also happened via GSM mobile Internet, making at least MITM pretty unlikely. And I can Work around by explicitly connecting via HTTPS. I'm going to reproduce it while Monitoring my Network, maybe I can find Out further information.

                          Maybe virus attacked your device.
