Link opens speed dial instead of web page

  • I recently installed opera in ubuntu and I have defined it as my default browser by all th methods I know .Everything works fine but when I click on a link in Telegram or in a mail Opera only opens a speed dial and not the web page it was supposed to.
    Does a solution exist ?

  • Make sure the shortcut includes %u, as in "opera %u".

  • @sgunhouse
    If this file is the right one it has the %U but I still got the speed dial.
    When I run in command line opera it works fine but when I click on that link in a mail/text document it opens a speed dial.

  • I'm having the same problem on a Macbook Pro running macOS High Sierra 10.13.2. Anybody have any idea what could be causing this?

  • Try posting in the Mac forum; any answers in this forum are unlikely to work on your system.

  • One piece of solution, when I tried to open a link in a PDF recently I had the error :

  • Sorry the last message was not linked to the subject (an other bug)

    But I finally found the solution, .local/share/applications/opera.desktop
    contains a line which is Exec=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/opera %U. Without the %U first, I don't know why.

    So it finally works, Excuse me for bothering you.
