How to update extension to current version?

  • I noticed there is a newer version for one of my extensions.

    When I click on "updates" in my list of extensions the update does not display as available (nothing displays).

    How do I update the extension?

  • Usually extensions are updated automatically. If it's not happening, try removing and then adding the extension again.

  • Thanks for the reply.

    I'm just wondering, what is the "Updates" link on the left side of the extensions page (under "ALL" and under the "search box" where it says "Extensions") supposed to do?

    When I click on "Updates" I get a new page that says "no extensions in current category".

    Also is there a setting to enable/disable "automatic updates" for extensions somewhere in Opera?

  • I think extensions that are updated but temporally disabled because they need user confirmation (like additional permission or something) will go under updates.
    For instance, extension developer added new features and those new featherers require new permissions.

  • Thanks for the reply. I found that by just doing a disable/enable, the extension was then updated to the current version.

  • you can also force/check update if you enable developer mode and then click update extensions now
