  • 47.0.2631.71 (PGO) - An error occurred while checking for updates

    What causes this?

  • 47.0.2631.71 (PGO) - An error occurred while checking for updates
    What causes this?

    There can be several causes for it. A problem on the servers, a problem in auto update process, an anti-virus, a firewall, many can be the causes.

    Sometimes just running the installer resolve it.

  • I have Opera 36 on my Windows Vista desktop. I see there are versions up to and beyond 41. When I click a link to download Opera 41, it re-installs Opera 36. Am I missing something, or is it that 36 is the most recent that Vista can use? Thanks!

  • The last build of Opera which will run on Vista or XP is 36.0.2130.80; you cannot run a later version without at least Windows 7.

  • Thanks, sgunhouse. I thought that might be the case.

  • Are Opera still providing any security updates to Opera 36?
    They said they would for an unspecified period when they had to drop support for XP and Vista, but it's been a very long time now since the last one!
    Would they announce if it had now officially been abandoned?
    Opera 36 already won't display some secure sites.

  • Zoom:
    How can I increase the number of steps available to the zoom function? I'd like to have 5% increments between 125% and 150%

  • How can I increase the number of steps available to the zoom function?

    As far as I know, you can't.

  • OK thanks.

  • Opera v. 47.
    I want my own avatar for my posts, so I clicked on my generic avatar. Do I have to learn about Gravatars and coding to make my own/

  • Are you talking about your avatar in this forum?
    If so, this should be in the forum issues section.
    As far as I know you can still only have a personalised avatar here by using Gravatar.

  • Hi, I use AeroGlass and transparency in the skin not once you get the native skin Windows 10, or just have to use a different browser in the end.

  • Is it or will it be possible to use standard window management? (Standard title bar, window borders, etc?)

  • Is it or will it be possible to use standard window management? (Standard title bar, window borders, etc?)

    What do you mean by this?

  • What do you mean by this?

    From what I can tell, Opera uses a custom title bar and window borders, meaning that it doesn't play so well with window managers like autohotkey, at least in Windows 7. Is there some way to restore the system title bar and borders?

  • Is there some way to restore the system title bar and borders?

    Nope, you can't restore what wasn't there.

  • Why dont appear the magic actions for youtube controls in the new opera.
    I desinstal and instal opera and magic actions for you tube and te controls dont appear.<
    I left opera soon

  • Why dont appear the magic actions for youtube controls in the new opera.

    Maybe because that extension hasn't been updated in the last 1 year? Maybe because Youtube has changed its layout?

  • Some how I got something that keeps popping up tabs for dating, sex and brides constantly. What can I do to stop this?
