Problem downloading any file or image

  • I have a problem with Opera Gx, apparently in the updated version, I cannot download any file or image. I already uninstalled and installed it, it works in the beginning and then it doesn't download anymore

    The download is only successful in other browsers, even the normal Opera
    Opera GX doesn’t work, it disrupts the experience too much 😕

  • What firewall or other internet security software do you have? They are designed to prevent unknown software from accessing the internet, so could block Opera GX.

    I tested it by deactivating Windows Defender and Firewall and even then it didn't work, I can only download a file in Opera when I restart and then I can't anymore.

    I'm not able to understand what's going on, this came in the latest update of Opera Gx and I can't solve it, do you have any ideas?

  • @ranni Already checked with extensions disabled and with a clean profile directory?

    Yes! I restored Opera Gx to the default about three times, at first it downloads a file once and then it doesn't download again, only when restarting, but when I restart it only downloads once and then it doesn't download again.

    The only extensions I have are from Opera itself like "Adblock, Discord, Instagram"
