:tools: Scheduled maintenance

Heads up! Downtime for the Forums, related to the NodeBB upgrade, is planned for Thursday, December 14, starting from 10:00 UTC.
Please make sure to finish all your posts before this time. The downtime should only last for a few minutes.

Stop asking me where to save downloads!

  • I have my Downloads folder set and UNCHECKED "Ask me where to save" and yet, Opera keeps asking me where to save files. WHY is it doing this? It's annoying as hell.

  • Depends on the file type. Executables and anything else considered potentially dangerous (which could contain a virus) will always make it ask. Beyond that ... any of the context menu options "Save (image, linked content, etc.) as ..." always ask so that you can potentially change the name.

  • What difference does it make? It's not like auto downloading EXE will miraculously self execute. It's just annoying as hell and defeats the purpose of that setting.

  • I set a download directory, and that is what gets used. If I go to download something, the download directory is what is selected (although I could change it in the download dialog).
