38.0.2220.31 Download now opens Explorer window

  • Is this a feature or a bug? Up to this version download went directly to the folder specified in settings. Option to ask for each download is unchecked.

  • Is this a feature or a bug?

    It's by design. When downloading an executable file, the download prompt will always shows up.

  • Ah, so. Guess I don't download .exe files very often.

  • If it's feature then is really retarded feature. And, I don't think it's a feature, I think it's a bug and they need to fix it. Everything worked fine on previous versions of Opera. I noticed yesterday same thing as you, and I keep asking myself what's wrong...
    I tried to download .jpg file and some other files - result was the same. Opera keeps asking me where I want to download my file. With version 37 I had no issues with that. So, definitely it's a bug and they need to fix it soon cuz it's so annoying.

    This 'feature' was introduced in the latest version, the previous one didn't have it.

    How are you trying to download the .jpg files? If you are right clicking on a image and uisng 'save image as' or 'save linked content as' then it always worked this way.

  • I was on some site with wallpapers. And, there is download button there below specific image.
    But OK, if it's a feature that was introduced in the latest version, what's the point then having that option in opera settings?

    Any example sites/links?

    Security. It's to avoid executable files to be downloaded (and even run) without the user know about it.
