i'm sure it happened in the past, atm i don't seem to have that problem, but i'll keep an eye open if this problem pops up again. I'll report back here if there is an issue. But thank you for the reply that chrome extensions should be updated automatically just like Opera ones. i just recognized this before posting here.
Thank you for your short explanation of the process! Good to hear all is right on your side
Sorry for being blunt, but after it happened the second time within a short period i thought something might be wrong... glad that it was just some odd coincidence. Now its LastPass turn!
This means the new extension version wants to have more permissions than the previous versions. The extension should now be temporarily disabled until you accept or deny this. There should be a list of which additional permissions it wants to have. The string is indeed a bit odd.
"StayFocusd" seems to be the extension you need.
I've requested the port to Opera catalog which you can upvote: https://getsatisfaction.com/stayfocusd/topics/a-version-for-opera-browser
Meanwhile, you can download the .crx file from Chrome Store and drag'n'drop it to the Opera.
Or, alternatively, use this extension to install it directly from Chrome Store: https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/download-chrome-extension-9/
addons.opera.com checks your User Agent string to figure out which browser you are, and adapt the results accordingly. I clicked "Get extensions" in my Opera 12.17 (for Linux) menu now, and I'm transported to https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/. Here I see various extensions, but they're all for Opera 12.
Have you by any chance changed the User Agent string, or made Opera mask as Chrome or Firefox? If so, that would make the site think you're using a non-Opera browser, and will serve you content for the newest version of the browser.
Having Opera 24 installed on your computer shouldn't matter, as long as you access the site in Opera 12.17.
"Get it anyway" means that you can download the content, even if it isn't made for the browser you use.
Thanks a lot. That was it, identify as firefox, although I don't recall making this change. By the way does the extension "go back" work for anyone in 12.17? I would love for that one to work, or is there an extension expert around who could have a look an try to make it work. Would be so cool
I noticed that you at some point -uploaded- a package with the name "stop it v1.4.28", i.e. with the version number included in the name itself, and then you deleted it again. Can you go to your profile, find the "Stop it" extension in your list and see if you have a button saying "Upgrade"? It's here you'd upload the 1.4.28 version.
For us "Upload" means "create a new extension", while "Upgrade" means "add a version to an existing extension".
