GDPR ?

  • I have version 12.17.1863 in Windows 7 32bit in the UK (EU).
    I am having to submit this in Firefox because Opera has become unusable since General Data Protection Regulations came into force. To access any website I have to accept dozens of dialogs. I am unable to upgrade because the 'Preparing installation' doesn't finish.
    I love Opera's bookmarking, sessions and cookie management.
    Any suggestions?

  • @pjbw127 Do you need to do it every time you access those sites? Do you have cookies enabled?

    Regarding the installation, did you try the offline installer?

  • @leocg
    Yes every time, over and over again.
    I did all my browsing in Opera. I have cookies enabled for the top page in each of my 4 sessions. If I really have to have cookies (for such as Amazon) I pasted the URL into Firefox where I have cookies enabled for everything. A bit of hassle but over the years this has saved a lot of trouble.
    Unfortunately this worked until I think it was when GDPR happened.
    How do I access the offline installer?

  • @pjbw127 You can get the offline in Opera's page.
