Little Snitch - new rules after each update of Opera.

  • Hi.
    I'm trying to use Opera with Little Snitch and basically it works... until update. Unfortunatelly, LS puts all Opera's rules as 'Opera via Opera Helper', which later uses direct path to binary, like: "/Applications/Opera.app/Contents/Frameworks/OperaFramework.framework/Versions/65.0.3467.48/Helpers/OperaHelper.app/Contents/Mac OS/Opera Helper", and after every update, when version is changedd, this path is also different, so my old ruleset is ignored and LS asks me for every connection again.
    Any ideas, how to avoid this? And no, I won't allow Opera 'every outcoming connection', it's kinda not the idea of using very strict firewall software 😉

  • I allowed Opera to get out via only HTTP and HTTPS with Little Snitch, and that works.

  • Yeah, it would be, but it's not the point here. I don't want to allow all http/https traffic allowed. I like to deny connections to ad services etc.

    I think the best way to do that is to use a Hosts file or use an adblocker like uBlock Origin with a bunch of subscriptions to block ads and trackers, and maybe also a personal filter list for special cases where what you want blocked is not in the subscriptions.

  • Nope, it's like forgetting about Little Snitch at all, which I don't want.
