Facebook upload slow with newer Opera versions - why?

  • Hi,

    I am often uploading large photo albums on Facebook and noticed that with the newer Opera for Windows versions the upload takes forever. If I manually downgrade to version 42.x then the uploads are significantly faster. Unfortunately Opera keeps auto-upgrading itself to the newest version so basically every time I want to upload to Facebook I have to run the v. 42.x setup first. Quite annoying, I wonder if anybody can figure out why this speed problem occurs with the newer versions? I think I once tried v. 47.x and it was slow, so whatever changed must have happened around versions 43-47 and it is ongoing with the newest build. Thanks for any help on this!

  • oh, i forgot... I noticed the same phenomenon when uploading photos to my OneDrive account. Significant speed difference between Opera around v.42 and around v.47+
