[Solved]Opera does not have access to some folders

In Opera (only) I cannot open a file located in /home/username/.local (and subfolders) or /media/ (and subfolders). I am in ubuntu 18.04. So, jupyter notebook does not work. for ex.

What you experience is the side effects of running a snap app. Snap apps run in a sandboxed enviroment and are not allowed to access the system's file system (e.g. the user's home folder), devices (cameras, printers etc) and more.
For that reason, snap apps have a built in permissions system, line android apps do.
So you either grand opera the permission to access your home folder, or be a sane man and install opera as a deb and use it like all the other linux apps.

thanks man, I followed https://vitux.com/how-to-install-uninstall-opera-browser-on-ubuntu/ (1st method) after uninstalling the snap version, and now works. (previously, the last method .deb didn't work, so I used snap.)
