  • What do those ads show?

  • The same ads are shown on the Android's opera mini version 7.6.4 . The ads are related to opera mini. and for me they are made to improve the using of the latest version of opera mini. the ads are shown on a full page before the real page you want to visit. They make the browsing very difficult. and sometimes you must reload the page and there are case you lose the page you want to load, at the place you get the page of ads. But the ads also encourage people to use for example uc mini. My case for example my carrier block the latest opera mini ( doesn't know the reason) so with the ads , it's better for me to use uc mini. the ads are server side, they can add it on the top of page instead of using a full page.

  • The ads are for various products and services, and they are completely unrelated to the website or anything I would have interest in, or recently browsed for/about (which I guess says something else about algorithms!)Example: "Tint World - Fastest Growing Automotive Franchise" I hope AdSense donates their work to Opera!

  • I do have exactly the same problem ! Now surfing with opera, means we receive advertising allways, produced by Google ! That's a shame ! NB This ad "Devialet", I also received ... A click on a web site, we don't arrive to the web site, it's an ad coming ! I am going to ask for more explanations to opera administration . Because I loaded opera, not Google !

  • ornelien: It's sad to know that your carrier blocked the newest Mini client as it has a lot of great new features when compared to version 7. What is your carrier's name and in which country are you based?

  • Nothing new here? It seems that we've established these ads are provided through Opera, so it seems that unless Opera provides an updated Mini for Symbian, with an ad blocker,there isn't much that can be done.

    I guess I would again ask that since someone went to the trouble of making the ads appear, could you at least fix the coding so that clicking on proceed to site actually achieves that functionality?

  • @ornelien I have the same problem on android's OM 16. Its true that is a way to force the users to change latest vers. Its a pity, until a couple of years ago, Opera had better support and more respect for users who preferred to use the version of their liking!

  • @olasia I'm in Congo Brazza and my carrier is MTN. @clautrajano they are losing many users I think because of these ads

  • I am using opera mini 21 and facing same problem. I does not like the new version of opera mini. Once, Opera mini is the coolest thing on internet but now it is losing respect. I am using opera mini since 2009.

  • Lets migrate to UC Mini then until the y fix it,or leave it forever. Your decision,devs. Yours.

  • And now it seems they have a different version of Google search? Comparing to desktop, More ads appear at the top of the search listing. And this is on 7.1.32444, so despite Symbian being dead, this is the second thing that has changed in the last couple of months, so someone is doing something. Also true on 8.0.35626 - more ads appear on mobile version than desktop

  • @ozwan212 said in Ads on Mini:

    Your decision,devs. Yours.

    Unfortunately it's not ours :|

  • These interstitial ads are a deal breaker for me. Can a user opt out in any way?

    Does Opera see the irony here? Your ad blocking is one of your primary features that you promote - yet your browser now forces colossal... ADS???

  • Sorry, but as an android Opera user for many years, I just uninstalled 😞
