Cannot upload Facebook photos but enabled Chromium flag stops extension/wallpaper downloads.

  • For a while I was unable to upload Facebook albums. The photo selection dialogue would open but then the upload would never begin.

    I found advice on here to enable opera://flags/#chromium-ua-compatibility.

    I did this and it the uploads then worked.

    However, with opera://flags/#chromium-ua-compatibility enabled I can no longer download extensions and wallpapers etc. within Opera as I get a message to download Opera first. Obvs I am using Opera and the opera://flags/#chromium-ua-compatibility flag is causing ID issues.

    Is anyone able to tell me what the issue with FB album uploads without opera://flags/#chromium-ua-compatibility enabled is and/or what the best solution to these clashes would be, please?


  • @Frontman I guess it's kinda obvious, Facebook is blocking Opera and the flag prevents them from doing it because it makes sites think that you are using Chromium/Chrome.

    The best solution would be to contact Facebook and ask them to stop blocking Opera.

  • Second-best would be to download a UA switcher extension that allows you to automatically change the user agent for specified websites (and not for others).
