"Blocking Insecure Sites"

  • I have a simple question, but trying to find an answer to something so seemingly basic has proved to be extremely difficult (and thus very frustrating and annoying).

    How do I permanently stop Opera from blocking "Insecure sites"? A site I am very familiar and comfortable with from my Chrome days is blocked whenever I try to access it. I understand how to unblock it on a one time basis, but not how to permanently disable Opera's blocking of this or other sites I deem safe? It's very irritating to have Opera make unilateral decisions for me regarding the content I chose to use on my computer, and not give me a way to take that control back. I may not be able to figure out how to go about the process, but I'm not so stupid that I can't make my own decisions about something like this.

    This is such an aggravating issue -- made even more aggravating by the inability to find any guidance from the Help function -- that it's close to a deal breaker. Could someone PLEASE explain what the deal is? (that's not intended to be a shout, merely a work around to the apparently insoluble issue of how to perform basic formatting for those of us who are not IT pros. I'm sorry for my ignorance, but it is what it is.)

  • Your version of Opera?

    Not possible.

  • Isn't there any whitelisting, Leo?
