Opera 35 won't load any pages.

  • After an unfortunate encounter with that YTdownloader virus (which my Windows 7 computer has pretty much fully recovered from), Opera no longer loads pages. It just hangs for several minutes and says it couldn't load the page. I've had no luck after uninstalling it and reinstalling.

  • Seems to be a larger error in Version 35.0. We have the problem in all instances installed in the office and the whole family had.
    The trouble here is:

    • the Auto-Updater is not to disable easy

    • old versions of Opera you can not download, at least I have not found a link to the old versions (V34.0?)

    My solution was:

    • from a Time Machine backup Opera in version 34.0 from Feb 1 recovered

    • in the folder "Opera.app/Contents/MacOS" I delete "opera_autoupdate", "opera_updateinstaller", "opera_crashinspector", "opera_crashreporter" (The first two are required, the last two according to your mood.)

    Feature request to Opera ASA:

    • turn off setting to the auto-update-service

    • version history of all the old versions to download, if there should be this somewhere = >> clearly inform about

    Until then, I recommend everyone to turn off the auto-updater, regardless of which way, and every 3-4 months, according to examine current bug-reports, manually update or use FF.

  • Tried 29 since posting this. Now it says "unable to connect to the proxy server". I know for a fact that i have it set to autodetect.
