Add-on auto-install ?

  • Hi i have an extension who works under chrome, Firefox and opera.
    What i did for my chrome extension is, this i created an external little app EXE (windows),
    when i launch my app on my desktop the app write reg keys.
    Those registry keys prevent the user to remove/uninstall my add-on my add-on is a protection tool against adults contents & dangerous urls, it also work on incognito mode and guest mode is disabled, also creating a new empty profile use the add-on, so its 100% protected!
    when my app install those keys and when i start chrome, my add-on is installed,
    i would like to achieve the same on Opera.

    It is possible ?? because Opera is based on Chromium !

  • I would need to check but I guess Opera doesn't allow installing extensions this way.

    Also, if it's not on the extension store, it will be disabled by Opera.

  • Yeah my add-on is also on Opera store i'm looking for adding a function who prevent the add-on to be disabled by users, when it's installed, prevent users of disabling and watching or accessing xxx contents and others things.
    maybe is something here : https://dev.opera.com/extensions/

  • I guess some articles in that page may be outdated but maybe you can find some info there.
