How do I disable extension requests?

  • Some sites nag with installation requests for their opera extensions, see this screenshot from visiting amazon.

    I couldn't find an option to disallow extension proposals. (I do NOT want to generally disable extensions.) Any idea?

  • Welcome to the fact that Opera is paid for by Amazon. They are so deep in bed with them, it is ridiculous. This is why it comes pre-added as a favorite and the second you browse Amazon, you get 5 "continue shopping on Amazon" Bold , Bright , Shiny , new "Favorites" Front and center (and above your favorites) on the home screen.

    I get that the money helps with dev, but for Christs sake, let us at least disable it, for those in the know....
