Add-ons Page Issues

  • I deleted your off-topic post. Read the rules.

  • Whitelisting cdn0.opera-mini.net as suggested above solved the issue. It also points to how to get the VPN service working as well. Props to damski.

    Ideally Opera would not host this stylesheet on a blacklisted server (at least by OpenDNS). Not everyone controls their own whitelist.

    Ideally OpenDNS shouldn't be blocking that server/address as there are no reasons for it. Opera is juts using one of its servers.

  • searching for extensions within opera desktop browser seems to be broken. For example if I search "ublock" nothing comes up http://i.imgur.com/KhB0Yp7.jpg
    but when I search ublock opera extension in google, I get a result

    Maybe if you search in the correct place.... You seems to be looking at the extensions manager not on the add-ons page.

  • whats the difference between extensions and addons?

  • I mean, they ARE called extensions, aren't they? You go here https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/ and says "These extensions and themes are made for the Opera browser"

    although the url does have addons in it, so that seems awfully convoluted. And yet, the little extensions icon is located on the left side of opera, and and clicking on that puzzle piece leads you to the screenshot I posted above... which says... extensions. So why would opera make it so convoluted to get extensions (or is it now addons?), if those extensions (or addons) were not actually the extensions, but something else?

    maybe what they REALLY meant was that was to "manage extensions" and yet that word is missing. One is lead to believe that is actually where and how you go to get extensions, or whatever they are called. Why would managing extensions be displayed prominently on the left hand side? seems like someone would first need to add SOME extensions first, but some reason that aspect is buried away somewhere else.

    anyway, I thought I'd give opera another try, but it just fails at simplicity and ease of use compared to other browsers. Not to mention lacking extensions I use with other browsers.

  • whats the difference between extensions and addons?

    An extension is an addon but an addon can be more than that. It can be a theme, for example.

  • You go here https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/ and says "These extensions and themes are made for the Opera browser"

    Yes, this is where you look for and download/install extensions in Opera.

    And yet, the little extensions icon is located on the left side of opera, and and clicking on that puzzle piece leads you to the screenshot I posted above... which says... extensions.

    Yes, this is one of the short-cuts to the extensions manager as well the bookmarks icon is a short-cut to the bookmarks manager. And there is also one to the downloads manager.

    ???

    It's not that difficult to get extensions. In the extensions manager itself there's a 'get more extensions' link that leads you to the extensions page.

    maybe what they REALLY meant was that was to "manage extensions"

    It's kinda implicit.

    One is lead to believe that is actually where and how you go to get extensions, or whatever they are called.

    I don't remember haver seen comments regarding this.

    Why not? There is the bookmarks manager, the downloads manager.

    Interesting to read it as for me Opera is one of the simplest and easy to use browsers.

  • I'm having the same issue, a broken add ons page, and I cannot get to the page to flush sockets. I get an Unknown Protocol warning.

    At home I use windows 10 64 bit, extensions are fine. At work, windows 7 Professional 32 Bit Get Add Ons page won't load.

    If I copy the URL for the Get More Extensions page and paste it into a different browser, it still looks broken.

    Could this be a corporate firewall problem? I hope not, as I love Opera and would gladly make it my #1, but I need to sync between home and work.

    This becomes a moot point if there is someway to sync extensions between computers.

  • I just used the opera://net-internals/#sockets link and it did work. Flushed the sockets, then reloaded and went on https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/ and worked just fine. At first i used Kszularz link for the flushing, but it has a DENIED:opera://net-internals/#sockets in the link http://hpics.li/04bab86 , it wont let me get to the page, i just deleted the DENIED:, hit enter and then i got to the proper page to flush the sockets http://hpics.li/4472b85 and reloaded and got everything back as it should be on https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/
    Thanks for the help .

  • I also managed to find my way to the Flush Socket Pools page through the back door, but alas, it did not work, so it must be something to do with my company's security settings over which I have no control.

    Sad, I really like this browser.

  • The addons page is broken when using Opera Turbo... I can only access the addons page in a new private window (Opera 40 here)

  • Where is my Adobe Flash player located at? Every game I play it doesn't load and it says click on Adobe Flash player. What can I do to fix it?

    Did you really commented on a six months old thread to ask something totally unrelated to its subject of discussion?
