Opera 12.16 - download dialogue for .SVG on wiki and opera forums

  • Version 12.16
    Build 1860
    Platform Linux
    System i686, 3.9.11
    Browser identification Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux i686) Presto/2.12.388 Version/12.16

    Every time I go to a Wikipedia page (or indeed these forums, plus a few others) a download dialog for an svg file pops up.

    the only references I can find after searching are to an obsolete Adobe plugin.

    I've checked in opera:config and can't find anything that helps.

    any ideas how I can get rid of the dialogue?

  • Open Operas preferences
    Select tab Advanced
    Select section Downloads
    Untick Hide file types opened by Opera
    enter svg in quick search field
    With all all found entries
    .. Select all found entries with image/...svg
    .. Hit Edit button
    .. Select (*) Open with Opera
    .. Hit OK button

  • Of course!

    Perfect, thank you, all fixed
