@sheilacorvin298 Regarding your battery life, from a full charge, how long does it last without Opera being used? If it's only lasting a mere half hour after full charge with Opera in use, it sounds like something is seriously wrong - probably with the computer/battery. Was the laptop purchased new?
While i was browings the web, a popup said that opera needed an update and automatically downloaded a file called "Opera.Update.daf5a2.js" and as a complete fool i ran it.
At First nothing happened but on the next pc startup i noticed how everything i tried to run kept telling me that there was no internet connection.
Is there anyway that i can remove this file fron my pc?
Follow these following steps, it will definitely help you
1: Disconnect your PC from the Internet.
2: Enter safe mode.
3: Refrain from logging into accounts.
4: Delete temporary files.
5: Check your activity monitor.
6: Run a malware scanner.
7: Fix your web browser.
8: Clear your cache.
For as long as I know, Opera is a secure browser to manage payments. There may be some support issues that you might be encountering. Besides, it can be an issue with your specific version of the browser. You can ask any friend near you to help you check with it if they could handle payments with Opera. Otherwise, you have to switch to some other payment mode or app.
I believe, if users are facing such issues, Opera really needs some serious check on quality assurance. Rest, let me know if making updates or changing device help you process payments.
@wbhiginbotham If you're not using a VPN, the network provider can block anything they feel like. On the other hand, if they're going to block other stuff they'll probably block VPNs too. Walmart's wi-fi (where I work) is like that - they block all VPNs and also block any site with the words gun or rifle in the name. (Kind of strange to me, you can buy a rifle or shotgun at many Walmarts but can't look it up online to compare prices or check features.)
That's why high-end video cards tend to have more on-card memory; more of it is needed to manage all the pixels that render games at higher resolutions and at higher detail settings. But the Ryzen motherboard Generally speaking, for 1080p gaming, 2GB of video memory is an adequate minimum, but 4GB is much better.
@szczesliwy A VPN is meant to avoid censorship in the countries, areas and institutions where it is enforced. It's purpose is also to make you invisible on the web. If you're inclined by conscience to not to avail these provisions for which the VPN is used and meant for, then keeping the VPN by you makes no sense. My sincere advice is turn off the VPN altogether if it's usage is disagreeable to you.
I remember using opera a few years back when smartphones had hit the market for the first time. I was using Sony Xperia Mini. It had an inbuilt (already installed) Opera browser app. I didn't use any other browser, though I was familiar with many other browsers. If I recall it correctly, it had a neatly organised user interface and I was completely happy with the experience.
But, the shift happened when I started using the laptop and changed my phone. Laptops have Google chrome as a default browser, and smartphones running on android OS gives us chrome. I think the shift happened more like an external force. When people start using smartphones that run on android, they get used to the idea that chrome is a default browser. The majority of the users do not download or install any other browser, they will never go to that extend and they stick with what they have.
