Getting Opera 20 back?

  • Well, youtube doesn't work well ever since I've updated to Opera 21. I did a system restore to get back to Opera 20, but something was corrupted and I had to reinstall opera 21! I checked the download a previous version of opera, but it seems to just go up to Opera 12. Anyone know if there's a way to get 20? Thanks guys

  • You can get the last version of Opera 20 from the official Opera ftp linked below.

    ftp://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/desktop/20.0.1387.91/win/

    Just a slight warning, you may have to disconnect from the internet once you have installed version 20 and rename the 'opera_autoupdate.exe' (located in the folder 20.0.1387.91, which will be located in the folder you installed Opera to) to anything you like ('backup.exe' for example) to stop Opera auto updating to 21 again. Just rename it back again or download and install a newer version when you think it's safe to do so or the problems have been fixed.

    Oh, and obviously reconnect to the internet again, once you have done the above.

    You could always locate the new Opera 21 folder (21.0.1432.57) in the same place mentioned above and delete it (the entire folder), but also performing the file rename also mentioned above. which maybe an easier option.

  • Here are a couple of ideas. You might want to turn off Off-Road first if you have that checked.

    Opera 21 is ramping up hardware acceleration, so you could uncheck hardware acceleration in the advanced settings to see if that helps your specific need.

    I see this post above this one addresses the auto-update issue.

  • Hey thanks guys. I've got the problem fixed. I'm really really grateful for people like you that help the rest of us out. Best wishes, and THANK YOU! My life is a lot better because of you!
