  • Hello! Former versions of Opera offered the possibility of needed changes to do by typing "opera:config#UserPrefs|AllowFileXMLHttpRequest" in order to allow file access from files on the storage mediums of the computer. How to proceed for Opera 31?

  • Maybe this works: --allow-file-access-from-files

  • Thank you celadyn for your proposal. I work with this already in Chrome. In Opera 12.17 the cited command line in my post was recommended in order to allow file access from and to files on storage media. In Firefox I had to change two safety policy statements at the same time. The latest FF Version works again with my local files in default mode even with these statements activated. Some of the formers did not. So far I think, that there are only a few possibilities left in latest Opera builds for specific changes of safety policy or these are not discussed yet.

  • Hello celadyn! Surprise, surprise! This Chromium command line works indeed with latest Opera version. Now file access runs well!
