From what you mention.
You are on ubuntu 14.04, which has reached eol this May, so you no longer get security updates for anything and you can not install anything, because its repos have closed down
You are on a 32bit system, so you are stuck on opera 45, which is the last 32bit version of opera. May I ask what hardware are you on? Please don't be on an atom netbook!
That opera 45 identifies to sites as chromium 58, so sites like the one of your bank refuse to let it in because it lacks a ton of security updates. My bank only allows the latest version of any browser, not even a previous one.
So yes, as far as the bank is concerned, the problem is on your side and it does not have to do with vpn etc.
Let's talk about latest and greatest in Opera world: experimental builds, beta and developer versions
New build - Opera developer 66.0.3480.0 ;-)
The change log, and the announcement.

Is there some feature you would love see added to Opera browser on computer? Let us know!
I have a wish to make - webtorrent support. I miss the torrent downloading as we had in opera 12.x (of course, i do miss another feature - mails. but, this is more important). We can safe skip relying on external clients and tracking by those websites.
Thanks and regards.
@sgunhouse Yes, that's it. It's more of a progressive thing however, if I am watching it the audio isn't out of sync with the film/tv show to begin with, but it slowly becomes out of sync, refreshing the page fixes that but only for a short while. I have only recently started using Opera, so I am unsure whether this could be due to an option that I could select in order to stop this from happening.
@rudrick said in How to modify the speed dial to look branchy, instead of tiles?:
Speaking of Speed dial - I miss Stash.
I use the Pocket extension for this purpose. You could also use the sidebar extension, V7 Stash. They both work excellently.
@bwall said in Location issues:
The Opera 48.0 Help page says
Settings > Preferences > Advanced > Network and uncheck "Enable automatic redirection".
But there is no such option!
Can you please tell me how exactly have you found this help page that says that? I am trying to reproduce but I don't see it if I open Help from within Opera 48.
Where I do see such suggestion it is on old Help pages for Opera 12 (Presto) - but you have to google that page up...
Thank you for the support and tips.
All you were right: one extension was leaking the real IP by WebRTC. For my surprise was "Privacy Badger" of EFF.
This extension set "Use default public network interfaces only" as default. In this option de real IP of ISP leaks.
For curiosity I also tried "Use default public and private network interfaces only" and "Use any suitable network interface (recommended)". Both leaked my ISP's IP and local router IP.
Thank you a lot!
@garypen Well I have tried it in the past (about a year ago) but mainly I don't like the forced Windows 10 look of it and I'm used also to Opera's method of creating thumbnails for the Speed Dial items, although I liked a lot that in Vivaldi you could have as many Speed Dials you 'd want to, contrary to Opera where it gets confusing and untidy if you have many. It shouldn't have any peformance problems (I found this also http://www.digitaljournal.com/internet/op-ed-vivaldi-s-new-version-1-12-browser-worth-trying/article/505723 confirming it), and its bookmarks method in a tree amongst many other things are more on the classic path of Opera Presto or Firefox.
