Ongoing issue with signing OUT from Fox News

  • I have been having this issue for several weeks now. I thought it was a possible Ad block plus issue but it's something else. Every time I attempt to log out of Fox News it presents me with this message.

  • @ears14u Please provide your OS and Opera version information, so this topic can be moved to the right place, once it is not an issue with this forum.

  • @leocg , Ok, operating system is Windows 10 home 64 bit. And the Opera product version is 66.0.3515.103.

  • I'd go to the URL opera://settings/siteData, type foxnews.com in the quick find field and then choose "Remove all shown". Then, I'd log in again and try to log out.

    If you still get the issue, I'd goto opera://settings/content/cookies and see if blocking of 3rd-part cookies is turned on. If so, I'd try unblocking them just to see if the site then behaves.

    I notice it says http and not https. Wonder if the signout process is trying to load that instead of https://my.foxnews.com/? in Opera. You could turn on opera://flags/#chromium-ua-compatibility to see if it makes a difference.

  • @burnout426 -> Thank you for the response. I will try this very soon and come back and tell you if it was successful.
