Website Won't Open

  • Version: 42.0.2393.517 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 10 64-bit (WoW64)

    Works with every other browser but obviously, don't want to use multiple browsers just to look at a single article on one page!

    Any way round this with Opera?

    Thanks.

  • Have you tried with extensions disabled, if the case? What about anti-virus and similar software?

    Is Turbo or VPN enabled by chance?

  • Hi, yes, I've tried with extensions disabled and so on. It's just standard Opera, no turbo or VPN turned on. This is what the help says:

    'When you connect to a secure website, the server hosting that site presents your browser with something called a "certificate" to verify its identity. This certificate contains identity information, such as the address of the website, which is verified by a third party that your computer trusts. By checking that the address in the certificate matches the address of the website, it is possible to verify that you are securely communicating with the website you intended, and not a third party (such as an attacker on your network).

    You cannot visit davidbowienews.com right now because the website uses HSTS. Network errors and attacks are usually temporary, so this page will probably work later.'

    I was able to visit the site fine with Opera (which is my only browser) up until about three weeks ago.

  • I can easily visit that page so it has to be caused by something local on your end. Speaking of certificates: Opera relies on your local certificate store, and those are being kept up to date by your OS, in this case Windows. So: do you keep your Windows environment up to date?

    It's not a secure website.

    What exactly happens when you try to access the site?

  • All I get is the page with the message which I posted above. I'm Windows 10 Home and as far as I'm aware, completely up to date.

  • You can open the page in a private window?

    All I get is the page with the message which I posted above

    Could you post a screen-shot? Such message really doesn't seem to make sense.
