  • Hi,

    I'm not able to download any files from the internet eg., from oneDrive, google drive or even attachments from emails. Some background process keeps running and I have enabled pop-ups. Once I close the browser and restart next time all those downloads started will come up.

    Please let me know what can be done to resolve this.

    Note - I have Windows 8.1 64 bit system, and installed Opera 33.

  • What extensions do you have installed on your browser? When did this start happening? What steps have you taken to attempt to fix the problem, so you do rehash already tired solutions?

  • I can say I have the same problem on Opera 34 on Windows 10 x64. I tried disabling all my extension but it did not help.

  • Opera 34 is still in Beta. Beta releases have their own specific forum.

  • Example links where the issue happens? What are the steps to reproduce it? What happens when you try to download something? There is any error message?

    Does the problem happens with pages that does not require a login or that the fikles has been made public by its owner?

  • Hi,

    Sorry for late response. But this issue stopped for one day and has cropped up again. Issue is applicable for all websites, when I try to download anything few e.g.s, below:

    And I have not installed any extensions. There is no error message when a download is triggered, nothing happens, and I don't see anything happening in the Downloads tab.

    Steps to reproduce : Click on any attachments that come via gmail.

    Opera should consider providing a 'Downgrade' option to the previous version similar to the 'Update' option if there is no immediate viable solution for such one off cases/issues. And prevent the user from going through to find the setup file and reinstalling from scratch.

    I have been using Opera for 8+ years now and this is the first time I'm having such an annoying issue.
