Redirect when opening a new tab?!

  • Every-time I open a new tab in this browser another opens with a website named opinionsaboutcomputers.com. The website itself is, according to all my anti-virus and extensions, safe so I assumed it was some form of partnership Opera was doing. As such I tried to find out how to stop it but, after some searches, I found no-one else seems to experience this issue. After that I thought it must be malware and ran a few scans with malwarebytes premium (I still had the trial) and Avast Antivirus but they found nothing. At the moment I may just deal with closing a new tab and I have blocked the website so it doesn't actually load but rather just has a blank tab with "close" and "unblock" on it so I just close the tab. I am considering re-installing Opera but if anyone else knows anything about this please hit me up.

    P.S It is always that website and it first opens in a new windows then moves to a tab like a redirect usually would making me think my own homepage redirects me there but that seems unlikely.

  • @littlepanda115 Does it still happens after following the 'Before posting' steps at this topic?

  • @leocg Ah, my apologies I didn't know there was a "before posting" section as it didn't decide to tell me that. 🙄 Regardless I think it may be fixed by disabling one of my extensions, thank you for reminding me of them. 😃

  • Topic closed as solved. If in up until to a month the author needs the thread to be reopened, just report it. briefly explaining the reason.
