  • free VPN
Download Opera
  • add theme support

  • crashes when I try to load it (twice)

  • @mroeling That's sad. Even other users like @Ursanova are reporting it.

    • Please try to follow the @Saphirix advice here, to try again after having logged into Opera sync account, or instead off it totally. That should give us more info if sync stuff could be involved.

    • Else, you may have to try to completely uninstall Opera (then eventually reboot your system), and try to reinstall Opera from scratch anew, then just add that extension (not logging into any sync account) and see if it works. If it just works in this new condition but not afterwards, for instance, after having activated your sync account again, maybe something is conflicting in your Opera settings or profile or other extensions installed. That's just an hypothesis :).

    • My system is W8.1 (still!). To test if problem is linked to W10 only, or if it is instead linked to Opera 69 current version, I theoretically should be able to try to uninstall the extension and then try to reinstall it from scratch, but seeing what other users are reporting, I'm not so happy to do that test 😃
      I should be doing this just after doing my periodic system backup, so to be able to restore 😉 I will tell when I've got time to test it.

    • Anyway, if you're still stuck with this, and determine that's strongly linked to current Opera version, then I recommend you to open a new thread in Opera forum, specifying the problem with the extension in the current Opera version and detailing everything. When you've done, that would be nice if you could post also here a link to the thread, so other interested users could follow it or other info about the specific problem.

  • @graywalker hi, I'm user Alberto trying to help.

    • Operating system, Opera version?
    • just downloaded the extension fresh copy from same browser when installing?
    • Opera sync logged on or off?
    • In which sense you intended "crashed twice"? You tested it two times and each one it crashed? Or you got two consecutive crashes with one install try?
    • Was Opera crashing or just the extension?
    • Have you tried to disable all other extensions and retry?
  • @Saphirix useful info, thanks!

  • The extention is not working!

  • @naroper: Can confirm it is broken now unable to install new extensions with it

  • @programram: @programram: Ditto, hasn't been working for the past week after trying all the options listed in this comment section

  • works great for me

  • Help me, dont install extetion, "extensions install failed. package is invalid "crx file not readable""

  • Very good extension. Worked for every Chrome Extension I wanted to install. This addon eliminates the only reason why i dont wanted to use opera instead of chrome, cause i used many Chrome extensions i wanted to keep.

  • This extension doesn't work anymore. I just get the "Available on Opera" button in chrome shop and if i click on it, i just get the chrome download site. Please update it

  • @XeruTec I've just tested here and could install a Chrome extension.

  • @leocg After reinstall the app and installing chrome, it worked for me too. I don't know why i had to install chrome but my button changed to "Add to opera" again.

  • if it does not install from the opera extensions, go to the chrome webstore using the opera browser and near the address bar there should be an option to install the chrome opera extension

  • @Andy476 I fixed it by installing the chrome browser. Idk why it works with it but i can install the chrome extentions in opera again

  • @XeruTec I already had the chrome browser installed but could not get the "install chrome extensions" to install when going through the Opera "get more extensions" tab. Every time, it just crashed but then I used the Opera browser to open the "Chrome web store" and installed it from there and it worked.

  • @XeruTec said in Install Chrome Extensions:

    @leocg After reinstall the app and installing chrome, it worked for me too. I don't know why i had to install chrome but my button changed to "Add to opera" again.

    Same thing for me, strange but at least its working now

  • I try to install an extension and it appears that I can only have 4 extensions but I have none

  • Can you update for OperaGX? Currently not working, only "Available for Chrome" button.
