Debugging Web Pages - Entering Debug Mode

  • Is there a way to debug Web Pages remotely? I've read the instructions at and installed Android Studio 3.0. However, entering opera:debug into opera's address bar does not enter debug mode (opera tries to load the page opera://debug/). My Android Opera version is 43.0.2246.121183

    Any suggestions?

  • Actually, remote debugging is just that - remote. You can debug the content on your Android browser from a desktop browser.

    Any sort of guide on how to do this would be appreciated. In firefox, there is a WebIDE which shows connected Android devices and provides the interface for debugging. With Chrome, its "more tools" and "Remote Devices." But with Opera Desktop, I can't find anywhere to find a remote option to debug the Opera Android Mobile.

  • @mseifert9 Maybe Menu > Developer > Developer Tools?

  • @leocg - I cannot find any options in Developer Tools for remote debugging. That would be the logical place.

  • It seems to be in the same place as in Chrome: click on the three dots on the top right > More Tools > Remote devices.

  • @leocg Thanks for pointing out that it is the same as in Chrome. This is almost true - Remote Devices only shows up when under the "Audit" tab. I made sure that I can use Remote Debug within Chrome and my Galaxy s7 - demonstrating that I have all drivers and the Android SDK (Android Studio) installed. But when I open Opera on my Galaxy s7 and go to Opera Desktop - Remote Devices on the PC, there are No devices detected. Any idea what else might be missing? I even tried issuing the adb command=> adb forward tcp:9222 localabstract:com.opera.browser.devtools (as mentioned in the original article) but this did not seem to do anything.
