Sudden ad in Speed Dial

  • I saved the tabs in a speed dial folder, when I removed it suddenly a new item appeared in the speed dial from Aliexpress (aliexpress.com). This felt rather intrusive. Was it a mistake or was it policy?

    This is with latest Opera 39.

  • To me, it sounds adware.
    This "Ali" thing doesn't seem to mess much in the system though...

    Thoughts, guys?

  • Ad speed dials have only ever appeared when Opera updated, which is when you close the program and then reopen.

    AliExpress is a legitimate site (as in, not malware or scam), no idea if it is one they would use.

  • When you first open Opera, you get some default entries, like Facebook, AliExpress, eBay, etc. I removed them ages ago and never appeared again.

  • Dutch/The Netherlands, same here but a Groupon button, already set to my province.

    Two different systems occured Yesterday.

    Only Opera used.

    Version 39.0.2256.48

    Win7 64

    If an Opera initiative.. well must be i think, that would be a bad thing Opera dev´s should know better.
