How can I disable Auto-Update?
In Opera's installation folder (Menu > Help > About Opera for the path), find the folder with the current build and rename the auto updater executable file inside it.
Type the following into a terminal:
defaults write com.operasoftware.Opera OPDisableAutoUpdate true
Posting about your problem
After have done the steps above and confirmed that the problem is most probably in Opera, it's time to post about it.
Start the topic with a title that briefly describe the problem so people will know about what this is about.
Don't try to explain all the problem in the title.
Use tags to make it easy for other users to find posts about similar issues. If posting about Opera Mail then add the 'Opera Mail' tag
In the post (body) you should include the following information:
Your OS (Linux, Mac, Windows)
Your version of Opera
If the problem is with a page, a link to it
A screen-shot of the problem if it's related to something not showing as should
A description of the problem, including as much as information as possible
Steps to (try to) reproduce the issue
Expected behavior and actual one
@zauberfritz Well, I just counted my history items again... First of all, there is a weird thing going on... I see the history up to a point (about 100-120 items), but if I open one or two grouped items in the history, suddenly more history items become available at the end... But again, limited... I counted about 300 with all grouped items expanded, and as before, every new tab I open, the last history item is removed, which means the number is fixed and I have reached the limit.
A "select all" and "delete selected" would be greatly appreciated, especially when you search the history for a specific site to remove. As you said, search all google.com, then select all, then delete all selected... It's weird to have to click the X one by one...
The thing is that, with this limit, history becomes partially useful, or partially useless, depending on the perspective...

A different want to do it where you get a blank, gray page:
Goto the URL opera://settings/startPage, enable "Hide search box", enable "Hide Speed Dial" and disable "Show news on the start page". Tweak any of the other settings you want there too. Then, goto the URL opera://settings/wallpapers and disable "Enable Wallpapers".
@leocg said in Is Opera VPN down?:
Opera is connecting to the VPN?
When I turn on VPN is connects and turns blue but when I try and go to any website the VPN turns amber and says "connecting" and "the VPN is unavailable at this time. Opera is resolving the problem"
I'm using Windows 7 in the UK so no problems with any blocking of VPN use.
No idea what's going on.
Funny, I use keyboard shortcuts all the time with my favorite programs yet haven't employed them for my browsing style whatsoever!
No wonder I was oblivious to it's actual function so excuse me while I up my surf game a tad.
Thank you @leocg.
when using Utube Broadcast Yourself, when I try to use the share option I get a blank white box....This box normally contains links to Facebook , Twitter and other social media sites...I have no problem using My Chrome or Firefox browserthis only occurs in Opera.Any idea why ???
@bodoooops Passwords can only be migrated through sync or by exporting and then importing them in the new installation.
History, bookmarks, speed dials, some settings can be migrated with sync or by making a backup of the profile folder.
See https://help.opera.com/en/latest/crashes-and-issues/#backup for more info.
