getting proxy login popups for HTTPS links

  • Why am I getting a popup window saying :

        Please sign in
        You need to sign in with "us1517.opera-proxy.net:443"
           Username:
           Password:
    

    everytime I open a link with HTTPS ?
    Once I hit ESC the popup goes away and
    the normal green padlock HTTPS appears and link is correctly rendered.
    I do NOT have VPN turned on ... any suggestions ?

    here is my Opera browser release info :

    Version: 39.0.2248.0 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: developer
    System: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (x86_64; Unity)
    Browser identification
