Opera Turbo no longer can be checked

  • Just that. I don´t know for sure whether it is activated or not. Simply won´t be marked when you hit Opera Turbo with mouse pointer. I don´t know exactly when this started to happen either. Perhaps when updating to 36 version or so. Re-installing it makes no difference.
    Doesn´t happen under Linux, Mac, or using Beta - Developer Operas.
    Thanks in advance.

  • Please elaborate on your problem.

    Where are you trying to "hit Opera Turbo" exactly?
    What do you think should be happening and what does actually happen?

  • Thanks for your reply. Please check this images:

    Just that: I can´t activate / deactivate Turbo. Not even the menu box gets checked.

  • Ok, so probably something wrong happened to your profile.

    Can you please: close Opera, back up your profile (copy it to somewhere safe), then delete the original profile location, restart Opera and see if you can now select Turbo? You can find your profile location by going to Menu > About Opera, and look up "Profile" under the "Paths" section.

  • You were right. I deleted profile and was able to check Turbo again, but I restored it and the issue remained.

  • Javier, rename your profile (folder), restart.

    Then, as the browser has created this new, default profile, copy-overwrite the files in that folder - from your old, renamed one, to the new, clean one - one by one.
    You'll need to close and restart the browser each time, so it'll take some time. But then you'll see which file makes it glitch.

    Alternatively, you could first check the respective files each against their new counterparts, compairing their sizes (and/or properties) - to save you some work: if a compaired couple looks the same, you can leave it out in your further checking - as described in the above paragraph.
    Besides, you can also, additionally, check your renamed profile 1) with some antimalware software - in case something have created an "alien" file there, 2) "manually" - to see yourself if there is some extra file(s) there, first.

    Unless someone else can suggest a quicker and/or better means of clearing it out, of course.

  • Thank you very much Joshl. That seems complex procedure. So:

    1. I rename profile folder (so when I start Opera, it will create a new one)
    2. Copy the old-folder contents to the new one but ¿what should I see? and when will I have to close / restart the browser?

    Excuse my little understanding! Thank you

  • ¿what should I see? and when will I have to close / restart the browser?

    I'd start by 'Preferences' file and then, if that isn't the one to blame, I'd try 'Local state'.

    If none cause the issue, then you would need to copy one folder/file then open Opera and see if you can see Turbo's checkmark. If not then you should repeat the process with another folder/file.

    I think it may be easier to just start again with the new profile.

    Yes, it seems.
    Preferrably each time. But you see, you can rule out the files that appear unchanged - same size, for example.
    Among the others - as Leo suggests, first to check would be the "Preferences" and "Local state" files.
    To cut is shorter, you could copy-overwrite all the less suspicious files first, at once; then check (open Opera etc.): if everything seems all right, next time you overwrite one of those more suspicious ones, among which would be those "extra" files (if any, checking last).

    Leo, if one overwrites a file, will the previous version be moved to the system bin or just evaporate?
    I mean as soon as at a step, the error occurs, Javier could close it and reinstate the last checked file (the customised version of which is the culprit). Then he can move in the rest - if any, non-culprits, - and retain this new profile as the actual one, maybe even back it up in case something will corrupt it again any time soon or later.
    The old, renamed one he could "conserve" too: like zip it then delete the original.

    Last option.

    Last option.

    Ah, :doh: !
    Then one could further rename the second, (new) "trial" profile too - after the "bad" file's found, restart the browser to create a third, clean again, one, and copy-overwrite the renewed good file from there, after which delete it from there, or re-rename the last two folders back and proceed.

    Alternatively, one could, straight after the browser creates a new profile, the first time that is, back that profile up, or files in it. Or just sraight away rename it somehow too and make the browser create a third one - with which to work.
    Then we shall, too, have these three profile folders: one "old", renamed to copy-check the files, one a back-up clean, renamed too - to regain the "bad guys" after the work is nearly done, and a third, another clean - not renamed -- the one to receive in order to retain it as the new actual profile after the work's done.
    The first two get then eliminated generally.

    Yes, looks complicated, but if we don't know where the dog's buried and the issue is major...
