Forced to switch browsers

  • Can't open amazon in opera, opens in chrome. Can't open prime in opera, use chrome. Can't view pictures on facebook in opera, I can in chrome.

    I have been slowly having one issue after another with opera. Different issues with different sites and it's getting annoying. Been using opera for years, with minimal problems. But lately I feel like I'm being forced to slowly switch to another browser.

  • @leebeemz Can't access your bank account with opera, it works in chrome. The list seems to just keep growing. Maybe it's time to just switch to chrome.

  • What version of Opera? What OS?

    Do some testing. 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 but don't enable Opera Sync, don't install any extensions, don't enable VPN, and don't enable Opera's adblocker and tracking protection.

    How does that Opera work?

    If that Opera doesn't work right, temporarily create a new Windows user account to test with and try a standalone installation of Opera there. Any better?

    Also, for both your normal user accounts, try standalone installations of Opera Beta and Opera Developer from https://www.opera.com/download. How do those work?

    Using Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Sandboxie or IDM?

  • @burnout426 none of these suggestions have really helped to fix all the issues I'm having. I took my time going through each suggestion, working with them for a few days but still having issues in one way or another. Some previous issues have seemed to work themselves out, not sure how or when or if it was the site or opera for fix. But new issues keep appearing (example: youtube shows an error when clicking on a video, but video eventually plays after a few seconds - something I've never seen before). I can now open amazon & prime (but prime freezes my computer while watching videos. No other video site does this and prime only does it in opera). With new facebook layout I can now look a pictures (this issue may have been all on facebook, but I could open them in chrome at the time). I'm not sure why I'm having so many different issues, they seem to just start happening about a month ago.
