Where is the JavaScript Options button?

  • Opera 48: I want to load a javascript file but I cannot find the JavaScript Options button to specify the respective directory. There is no menu section 'Settings > Preferences > Advanced > Content' where the button supposedly should be located.
    'Show advanced' is checked.

  • There isn't one to be found.

    To load your own js file you need to use an extension.

  • You are reading information about Opera 12. In current versions you would need to install an extension to do that.

  • You can install Tampermonkey to do this.

    For the newest stable version though, download the Download Chrome Extension extension and install the Chrome one.

    Note though that it uses the Greasemonkey-type headers and auto-executes your code when the DOM is ready. As in, you don't do the window.opera stuff and use addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded"... like you would do with Opera 12 user scripts. Also, the script code is managed inside the browser in the extension settings instead of files/directories. But, it's the same thing basically.
