Opera for Linux doesn't include proprietary codecs - they may be detecting that. What version of Linux? Many versions of Linux will have a package available for Chromium codecs - see if you can find this package for the version of Chromium that your version of Opera is based on.
It should only need to ask once per session. That is to say, I use both Opera and Vivaldi, between them I only get asked once (by whichever runs first) until I log out of my desktop. If I close Opera and do something else for a while then go back to Opera it doesn't ask me then either (unless I logged out of the desktop)..
Now, if it asks but you somehow lose the dialog (behind another window, or close it by accident or some such) then Opera won't know any passwords ... but it also won't lose them. If you close Opera then try again all the old passwords will still be there, as it couldn't save them because you weren't logged in to the password manager.
I presume there must be a way to reset the password manager, but I'm also sure you'd know if you had..
Is that the snap version of opera that you have? If so, it is because snap apps in general have restrictions to what they can access on your system, for security reasons.
So you either allow snap opera to access removable media, or install the deb version of it.
Imho, the second option is better, many of reasons (spped, space, etc). And yes, I am anti-snap/appimage/flatpak/whatever is bringing windows-like installation procedures to linux.
@cybrsaylr You should have the right to choose to have or not have Google on your PC, and yes, it does matter.
If you cannot have your own choice of search engine to start up each tab, what is the point of having it there? It's better just to get rid of Google completely and have nothing. After all, you can easily search DuckDuckGo by making it your default search engine, and typing "your search" directly into your browser address bar, instead of the search bar below.
To get rid of the search box completely and free up more space for links to pages, instead, go to: Opera Settings > Advanced > Browser. At the very top of the page there is the option to "Hide Search Box".
@tesget said in No VPN option in Opera browser in Linux:
a day ago
I have the latest version of Linux Mint installed and it is there just fine. You have to go to Settings > Advanced > Features and you will see VPN right at the top.
To be honest I have found the VPN feature to be a bit buggy, in that, I will often loose my internet connection. After I manually turn off VPN, the internet comes back again, and I then manually turn the VPN on again. It will work for a given period but at some point it will go again and I have to do the same thing.
I had the same problem. It seems you are missing some codecs. The easiest way to get them is to download the Chromium (not Google Chrome) Browser. You don't have to use it, just download and install it. Simple. It worked for me.
That's what I was about to say. Snap apps, in general, have restrictions on what they can and can not access from the main os. As it seems, by default, the snap opera can not access the association for the magnet:// links.
I have the same problem. A very long time ago.

If it is a Flash issue, when on the site click on the globe or lock icon in the address bar, then on Site settings. You should find an option related to Flash there - make sure it says Flash is allowed on the site.
If you can't find it, then how can Opera?
Typically there is a folder named "browser-plugins" somewhere. Mind you, Opera is based on Chromium so you need the PPAPI version of Flash, not the older NPAPI style.
Is Tahr-Puppy some derivative of Puppy Linux?
If it's the speed dial, just remove each news site individually and put in your own more conservative sites. If it's the news feature on the side panel you're probably better advised to just disable it. Again, add conservative sites to your speed dial and you should be good to go.
