  • Hello people.
    I have a trouble, shortly:
    I'm Italian and english speaking. Now I'm in Russia, and several links I need in english or italian language, are redirected in russian version.
    For exammple, last I tried:

    (is "dell" page to get drivers and so on)

    when I paste it in OPERA, automatically redirect me in

    But last one is russian page, and I don't understand cirillic!!! 😞

    That happens with several multi-language sites... now: in settings I put "italian" as preferred language, even for browser and results. I tried also to go to ling with VPN active, and changing different places, but still links me in russian page; I tried with CHROME and FF, and with those other browsers it works good: tI get italian page... how can I fix it in Opera? Opera is my favourite browser by more than 15 years, I don't like to skip to other onejust for this annoying trouble...

    Thank you for your attention, I wish someone would be able to give me a hint!

    Happy 2019!

  • Is Italian or English set as preferred language for web pages?

  • What about Opera setting "Pop-ups and redirects"?


    I myself have never tried this option before.

  • as preferred I have Italian, but also I tryed English: no way.... some links, automatically changes in Russian, when I'm in Russia. In Lituanian whem I'm in Lituania, Polland, so on,,, that's annoying....

  • @yanta in that page, I just see: a switch, setted on off. then "loked": no entries, and "allowed": no entries... I don't see any language option.... 😕

  • Maybe the site is redirecting you based on your IP address?

  • @leocg Yep ok, maybe... but I don't know how to solve this. For sure, something see I am in Russia now, and sends me in russian page: but why just in Opera, not in FF or Chrome? that's the question.... if was working in same way with all browsers ok: I'd be disappointed, but I'd never open this thread! 🙂
    The link I posted is just an example: but with several ones it happens! Every time a site has a multilang menu, I'm redirectet in russia. (here... or german if in germany, so on...), but is not always SO EASY, to shift in english or italian pages. And anyway, everytime I click a link, with Opera I get again in a page in local language. Ho w can I set "something" (in Opera I guess, as just in Opera happens), just to get exactly the link I type, without any redirect?
    Tnk you for your time leocg!

    EDIT: I'm not a OS or PC expert, I'm just a final programmer on mechanic machines gui.... but: as I know IP is changed by VPN, right? But I tried to type links with Opera's VPN active, I'm supposed to be seen as located in Canada, USA or whatever I suppose... but still, I get local language pages... 😞

  • Did you try clean up cookies and local data?

  • @leocg cookies, I delete regularly, by Browser settings.... not data: do you mean, all folders and files related to "Opera" under current user appdata folder, right? I guess I'd have to uninstall Opera before, then re-install.... I'll try! Never done before, honestly. Tnx for this suggestion: I'll try in next few hours! 🙂

  • Check in the Local. State file if the country code in country and country from server is correct.

  • (sorry for delay but I'm working during day, and not always with internet connection...)

    Well, I tried this:

    • unistalled Opera.
      -Gone il ocal data folder, and deleted entire Opera folder
      -re-installed Opera

    I lost all favourites, settings, history and so on... so, I guess EVERYTHING should be deleted and setted as default. But nothing changed.... I still get redirected to russian pages.... 😢

    Well, by friday I'll be back in Italy, so I'd no check any other options,for a couple of weeks... But I'll be back for sure in next journey, from somewhere around the world!
    Thank you, by now....

  • @patmat when i click that italian link it gets changed to uk
    but i notice the site has a selector at bottom of page try that maybe
