annoying window popup

  • I'm new to Opera and everything was fine until I updated to the latest version and a pop-up window appeared on the left side of the screen, every time I open a new tab, as shown in the image.
    Can someone tell me how to remove that popup?
    OS: Ubuntu 18.04

  • @adejonghm Yes, someone can help you when you:

    • tell us what Opera
    • make your screenshot visible
    • tell us what pop-up window with what
    • describe a little circumstances of those events

    Have a nice day.

  • @adejonghm I had the same issue caused by adware affecting my browser. I did these things to remove it.
    On linux-mint I used timeshift to go GOBACK to a safe restore point. I enabled "block-adware" on Opera Advance->settings->

    • "Block ads and surf the web faster" -enabled

    • Block trackers "manage exceptions-w gmail" -enabled.

    • Install a third partner extension "Badger" -enabled.

  • This image will help you block popups from annoying adware. ![alt text](advance settings at 2020-11-26 11-41-18.png image url)
