PDF and Opera

  • Yes W10

  • And how are you trying to open the file - from File Manager, or from Opera's Open File dialog?

  • File manager. Already opened pdf-files in Opera will not show the content. Just "No Internet
    No Internet

    Refresh doesn't help. Url shows the correct search.

  • Local PDFs load fine for me in Opera on Windows 10. Do the PDFs you're trying to load have some crazy-long file names or something. As in, does one named "test.pdf" load fine?

  • What ever the name is, the behavior is the same.
    If network is up, the files are found without trouble.
    If I shut the network down and make a refresh the error with the faulty spacecraft (ERR_INTERNET_DISCONNECTED) comes up, When network is up again, followed by a refresh, the page is found again.

  • Did you try the Open dialog to see if it is the same? In Opera, press Ctrl-O to show the Open dialog, then find the file to look at there.

  • If not connected to internet I get the same error message when trying open with Ctrl-O

  • The same go for html-files. Without internet connection Opera will not open any local html-file

    That's definitely weird. You tested with an PDF and html file on your desktop? The local files are really local? (as in, not on a network share or something)

    What if you test with a fresh profile of Opera? Download the Opera installer, launch it, click "options" set "install path" to a folder named "Opera Test" on your desktop, set "install for" to "standalone installation", uncheck import data from default browser" and install. Test in that Opera with ctrl + o or dragging to that Opera. But, don't enable Opera Sync in that Opera or install any extensions.

    How does it work there?

    Thanks. Any idea why it misbehaved?
