Annoying Popups

  • Please refrain from asking for the same thing over and over again. Like "do you wish to view some kind of video". To which i'm thinking "no i am here on my own mission right now so stop bugging me with off topic stuff". But then it does the same next time the app opens. Please stop this behavior. Thank you for understanding.

  • What websites do you have open? It is the site that is trying to show you the video, and Opera is merely asking whether you really wanted to see it. I see no popups at all when I open Opera - but I start with the speed dial page, don't use news, and have notifications turned off.

  • Mine opens on the default opera home page, I think it is news. Tried it right now, and I did not get asked about some video - I will get back to you next time this happens. (I am only human, possibly it is not opera's fault - and someone else's issue. I will try and investigate for you next time it happens ;-))

    Thinking is not enough...
    Opera is a very configurable browser -that's why I/we prefer it- so, you may go to Opera Settings and see if you can do something about your issue which [btw] is not mine too (v. 49 ...133821).

  • @werby Is this a place to make suggestions, to improve the product maybe? If you want me to I will refrain from making comments here again, By the way - the pop-up re-appeared once more this morning. I comes from simply opening the app.

  • @sgunhouse The popup reads: "Like free videos? Try the instaclips on Opera News! Share and ...". Thank you for trying to help.

  • Well then turn off News, like I did.
