[Bug] Options button in Extensions page does not work | Opera 64

  • It's impossible open an extension's options page through Extensions page. "Options" button does not open Options page of an extension, it opens Details page, that is wrong.

    Currently there is only one working way to open it is via a context menu, but it requires extension's icon should not be hidden from extensions bar.

    The bug is applied to a part of extensions. For some of them the button works as a planned for other the button opens Details page, not Options page.

  • @anonan Any examples of extension that have an options page and that you can not access using the options button?

  • HTTPS Everywhere

    Auto High Quality for YouTube

  • It is still actual.

    Clicking on "Extension options" button in opera://extensions/?id=edaplhobcmdaneconioghljnnopmkhgm (HTTPS Everywhere) page does not cause opening the extension options page, it just changed current url to opera://extensions/?options=edaplhobcmdaneconioghljnnopmkhgm.


  • The LastPass extension works correctly. Details opens the details and "Extension options" in Details and "Options" open the extension's options page.

    I assume the authors of the extensions just need to fix things a bit.

  • This appears to bee a bug with options_ui.open_in_tab

    This works:

      "options_ui": {
        "page": "options.html",
        "open_in_tab": true

    This doesn't work:

      "options_ui": {
        "page": "options.html",
        "open_in_tab": false

    This also doesn't work:

      "options_page":  "options.html",

    FWIW, options_ui.open_in_tab does not seem to be documented in the Opera specific extension documentation, but options_page is somewhat documented via example[1], and that appears to be not working.
