Re-Sizing Pop-Up Windows?

  • I am new to Opera and have been unable to find a solution to my problem, so thought I'd ask here. I use a website frequently that uses a pop-window. When the window pops up for Opera it is very small and I have to resize it to see the information. On Firefox, the browser was able to remember this and after the first resize would open the pop-up at the correct size in the future, but it seems like Opera continues to open it at the small size every time, so I have to resize. Not a huge issue, obviously, but just wondering if anyone knows a solution to get the browser to remember the size I want the pop-up to be?

  • https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/open-link-in-same-tab-pop/jmphljmgnagblkombahigniilhnbadca?hl=en will make pop-ups open in a tab instead of a window. Since they'll be forced into a tab, they'll be maximized (or whatever size the main window is).

    I tested it and Opera and it seems to work fine. Click the extension's icon and uncheck "reuse existing tab" though if you don't want the extension to mess with regular links and force them to open in the current tab.

  • @burnout426 Thanks for the answer! Unfortunately, it won't work to solve my problem. I want the pop up to be a separate window and I want it to be a custom size (not maximized) just different from the automatic size that opera gave me, without resizing every time I open it. But thank you very much for your help!
