Opera adblock blocking me accessing a personal account

  • Please excuse the name I was trying to set up an account yet it was refusing to accept anything I put, even a short name of random letters so I chose this and it accepted it.
    Anyway I am asking about access to a website I use which is:
    https://oyster.tfl.gov.uk/oyster/entry.do#
    When I enter my username and password and submit, nothing happens. If I am in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge I can get in but they get ad overload problems on some sites so I don't want to use them. It seems to be Opera's own adblock that is preventing me from going further. I can switch it off and get in but then I get ads again. With adblock on it is failing to recognise that I am only trying to log on to something. It sees something there it wants to stop. Is there any way around this?
    I have found other harmless places it blocks me from seeing as well. One was OK this morning but changed some time today.

  • Should have mentioned: I tried putting the website into the menu - settings - block ads - manage exceptions but it didn't help.

    If you go to the page, click on the blue shield icon an disable the ad-blocker for that page, does it make any difference?

  • Yes it worked, thanks for the advice.

  • Although I've just found another where the Opera adblock can't tell the difference between a page within a website and an ad, so when I clicked on the link to go to that page it was blank and I could only be see it by clicking on the blue shield.

    I hope Opera will sort out this fault.

    Did you report it?

  • No I didn't know I could. Where do I go to do this?
