Outlook Web App (OWA) - Can't Attach to Email

  • Hello,
    I am new to the Opera Browser (downloaded it this week and have been happily exploring and using constantly).
    The one issue I'm facing is that I'm unable to attach files to emails using the Outlook Web App (OWA).
    I move around a lot for work and am using shared computers almost exclusively, so I have to use OWA.

    Wondering if anyone else has had the same problem and found a fix?

    Not sure if this is at all helpful for troubleshooting this issue in Opera but I had the same issue with Firefox and was able to resolve it using this fix:

    1. In Firefox address field type about:config
    2. Search for "autostart"
    3. Toggle browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 to false
    4. Restart browser.

    Thanks in advance to anyone that can help!

  • From where are you trying the file? And how?

    I have no problem here attaching files to email messages. BTW, what happens when you try to add a file?
