OPERA Developer Version 39.0.2234.0 VPN ISSUES

  • yep, previous version works like a charm, VPN wise :drunk:

  • ver. 2226 goes smoothly 🙂
    Thank you for your time checking this rstacey.

  • yes, in previous version (2226) VPN works fine

  • Nice to see that Opera is on top of the situation. Ahem.

    OK, so with that older version, how do we disable automatic upgrades? For some reason, I don't see that option in Settings.

  • Interesting that a previous version works. I am still using the latest version of Opera Developer in a virtual machine on the same computer that was having the same issue of not connecting, just like you all.

    I'm not sure how else to troubleshoot this?

  • I installed the old version (2226) and, like all of you, VPN connections worked.

    But, like rseller commented, how do we stop the auto updates?
    As soon as it updates to the newer version, I am unable to connect to any website through the VPN service.

    I should point out that I am in VPN mode when I use the Opera Developer browser and it still functions as it should.

  • About autoupdates, you're not going to like the answer:
    https://forums.opera.com/topic/12488/opera-apparently-decided-that-i-want-automatic-updates-how-do-i-revert-that

    Hey, we can't add a Home button either, so I guess that's expected (extensions don't count).

  • To stop auto-update, rename opera_autoupdate.exe in C:\Program Files\Opera developer\39.0.2226.0 (or wherever Opera Developer is installed) to something else, such as opera_autoupdate.exe.bak

  • good to know, about how to stop auto-update! thanks rstacey

    I may revert to a previous build to regain VPN functionality... so long as I did not permanently delete the *.deb file for a recent build on that system! the single system I have where VPN is not functioning, it is a clean install of Opera developer 2234 build on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, it is real hardware instALL not a VM! Private window VPN doesn't work whether the WebRTC Leak Prevent v1.0.7C extension is Installed and/or Turned On, or not...

    Version information

  • I created an account so I could post .
    One problem is Avast AV has a problem with the 39.0.2234.0 update.
    On mine it kept detecting a virus.
    I believe this to be a false positive .

    On my Windows 7 32-bit i had to rollback to version 39.0.2226.0 as posted above.
    Disabling automatic updates with the work-around also posted above .
    The VPN is now working this way .

    On my Windows 7 64-bit on my laptop .
    I had to exclude the problem folder in Avast .
    Then 39.0.2234.0 worked .
    The VPN works now on this OS .

    I hope this information will help some people.

  • Hi,

    What about using VPN built-in service behind proxy where all ports except 80 an 443 are blocked (proxy is used to reach outside URLs). Do you plan to support such case?

    BR

  • I have the same problem it was working not it's not....such a let down

  • From Germany is all ok. Vpn works.

    I have a question : in which way can I have "Vpn & Power saver mode" always on?

    Other question...my password don't be saved in nobody site...why?

  • Here we are in Day 5 of this, and not a post, hint, smoke-signal, tweet--anything--from Opera about it.

    Does anyone here live down the road from Opera? You might want to go knock on the door to see if they're OK.

  • Other question...my password don't be saved in nobody site...why?

    It's unrelated to this topic's subject so please open another one or search for one about that subject.

    This is an users forum, you should not expect any answers or comments from Opera although some employees may do it occasionally.

    If not here, where? It should be somewhere. This seems like a good place for it--"Opera" is right in the name.

    You may have better luck in the desktop team blog (note: there are lots of comments about this there already) but even there you should not expect an answer.
