@yanta Auto-update is not used only to update Opera itself. It can be used to update extensions, ad-block lists and so on.
Aw, c'mon, man! Auto-update MUST NOT update my "extensions, ad-block lists and so on" since i'm not using Opera's ad-blocker.
Every extension i use has its own auto-update. ...
So how does that matter? Auto-update in software makes updates to files that, in turn, are used as references by function modules within the browser, whether you are "using" those browser functions or not. It's the same in Windows and AV programs and virtually all auto-updating software on your system: files are updated to keep the program current, whether or not a user has selected to use certain features. So, for example, an ad-block "block list" will get updated for the browser whether the user enables its usage or not.
