how to deactivate auto update
schroedingerscats last edited by
I am looking for a way to deactivate the auto update of opera.
I have extrem problems with the newest version of opera.
It always scrambled the websites after a while (20 - 30min).
To solve the problem for a short time I have to restart the browser.
The older version of opera doesn't have this problem. It worked fine.
So I have to reinstalled it again and again, because due to the auto update
the not working new version is installed again and again on my computer with every new start of opera, without me having any say in it.
So I would be really happy, if you have a solution for me

One surefire method to stop automatic updates is to remove execute permissions from Opera's
opera_autoupdateexecutable. This prevents Opera from ever checking for updates. Run this command in a
chmod a-x /Applications/Opera.app/Contents/MacOS/opera_autoupdate
Restore update checking with this command:
chmod a+x /Applications/Opera.app/Contents/MacOS/opera_autoupdate
