Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is it confined only to this low-end version of the Opera browser?
BTW, Outlook mail still opens normally in Firefox and Pale Moon.

So? If I were using Opera 427 or whatever, I wouldn't be concerned about new problems with Opera 36. Along with the rest of the 30 percent of Americans who still use Windows XP, however, I don't appreciate being bullied into throwing money away on a new computer I'd be using for nothing except reading e-mail.
The fact that there are half a dozen browsers that will (1) still open Outlook and (2) still work with XP ought to at least disappoint Opera's tech maestros.

Well, Opera no longer supports Windows XP, so most probably they won't release a new build of Opera 36 to fix the problem. This if the problem is really caused by Opera.
It's a matter of choice: you can upgrade and use modern web or you can keep using an ancient system and see more and more sites stop working.

Close Opera and modify Opera's shortcut to launcher.exe so its command is:
"C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" "--user-agent=Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/74.0.3729.157 Safari/537.36"
Then, try again. You may have to clear cookies for live.com and such.
