Unrequested bookmark added to my speed dial

  • It's the PriceSpy one, Opera keep forcing it into my speed dial, I keep removing it. If it was an every now and again thing I wouldn't mind but it's about a once a week thing.

  • Hello,

    I'm an employee at PriceSpy (though I'm not writing in an official capacity).
    We have some sort of marketing deal with a partner that includes visibility in the Opera browser (my best guess - based on the problem - is that this would be some sort of default speed dial page selection on initial install).

    You do not have to be afraid of malware on your computer, it's just the Opera browser doing this

    We've gotten complaints directed at us as well, and I've run this up the ladder too se if we want to end this deal.
    I agree that the way it's working seems to be either intrusive or malfunctioning ...

  • Hi, we are investigating the issue, there should be no nagging with stubborn updates of the preinstalled SD's. Sorry for inconvenience.

  • I keep getting this as well. It is not only extremely annoying, but until I found this page yit had me very worried about a malware infection. Especially as my usual anti programs did not find it. If anyone from opera is reading this I suggest you either get rid of this unwanted intrusion, or at least make it clear what it actually is.

  • hi, although the Re-appearing Price Spy was the wrong way to go about it, causing users to reach for their MalwareBytes, i understand that funding needs to be found one way or another. Opera is the best browser in the world in my opinion as an experienced user. Clean and mean. The design of the Speed Dial and bookmarks is such that i can instantly share with my other devices is pure genius. No need to worry about synchronizing etc, it's just perfect. Perhaps stubble advertising in the Menu driven dialogs such as Settings. How about a discrete extra panel alongside (but not in) some carefully selected windows, but Never in the main browser window.

  • I was getting it too, but it didn't really bother me and it never crossed my mind that it might be malware, I just 'tutted' at it then deleted it!

  • I have java version 7 and get this s-t all the time. How can I get rid of it?

    If, by that term, you mean you're getting Price Spy, simply delete the speed dial whenever it appears. As a revenue source, Opera negotiates favored placements in the Speed Dial with certain companies, so it might reappear after updates. On the other hand, if you mean that you're getting a variety of strange pop-ups, home pages, or startup pages in your browser, you might have malware/adware issues. I assume that you're running Windows XP if you're still using Java 7; if not using XP, then you definitely should update to the latest Java 8.

    If you're running XP, I'd take a very serious look at dumping Java entirely (Java 8 or higher won't run under XP by design). Java 7 has a number of security flaws being actively exploited in the wild, and publicly-available patches/updates for the version ended over a year ago. Java historically has been one of the major sources of malware infection because it's by nature a system-level scripting language, and due to the numerous security flaws continually being uncovered in it.

  • I'm running Windows10 and Walmart keeps showing up as a site in my speed dial...I love Opera but this is irksome,

    distracting and not at all like the Opera I'm used to. Opera was always neat, clean, reliable and not goofy. This is


  • Also just had a Walmart link appear in my Speed Dial. Running Version: 39.0.2256.48. This is the type of stuff that will drive me to another browser.
