Opera Browser: Addon deactivated - which one?

  • Hi.
    Which Addon has Opera deactivated?
    Under opera://extensions/ you find only:
    All Updates
    Activated
    Deactivated
    Missing: disabled, blocked because of danger.

    You want to know which addon is classified as dangerous and why.
    I also want to block this addon from further installation with warning.
    This should be possible everywhere.

    A alltime Log-Book of all Opera actions without user interaction would be also nice and useful.

    ps: Yes, i have many addons activated and deactivated.
    But the point is Usabilty, not Addonitis.

    ps: I translate it from German but do not know the original terms. Sorry if oddly, then correct me 🙂
    thx

    There's a German forum at https://forums.opera.com/category/34/deutsch if you want to ask there.

    So, you're saying Opera popped up a message that it disabled an add-on/extension but it doesn't show which one that was disabled? Do you have a link to the extension that triggers this (or a name at least)?

  • @burnout426 i also ask in the German forum 🙂

    But there is not so much response.

    Yes, Opera showed a message that it disabled an unnamed addon causing problems.
    So I have no link to it.
    And i do not remember the reason why Opera did so.
    I missed to take a screenshot. Next time.

    thx

    ps: it seems i "lost" today another addon.
    But silently... o_O
    I found its icon on an older screenshot.
    It is not listed in my addons anymore, even not in deactivated, so it got unasked deleted by Opera.
    And i cant find it in addons.opera or chrome.
    Who recognizes it by this screenshot?

    I don't, but since it has a star in it, it's likely to be bookmarks-related.

    Goto the URL opera://about and take note of the "profile" path. Close down Opera and goto that folder in Windows Explorer. In the "Extensions" folder, look through the id folders to see if the extension's folder is still there.

    Another thing you could do is look at th "Preferences", "Secure Preferences" and "Local State" files with JSONedit. Maybe you'll see the description for one of the extension IDs that will remind you.

    But yeah, it's unfortunate that Opera doesn't let you know which extensions it removed.
