  • @miyukiwork Yes I checked and all the permissions were granted . I still cannot attach or upload any files to any website using opera for android on my phone. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

  • @leocg I posted an issue and it received no response. Im not looking to break any rules. I am only looking to solve my issue and use opera as I had before. Do you have any recommendations for my inability to upload photos or files to any website while using opera for android? Platform: Android 9
    Opera Version; 61
    Build Number; 3076.56625
    Device Model unimax u693cl

  • @chakakhan It may happen that you will get no replies if no one knows how to solve the problem.

    No, I don't have any solution for your issue.

  • @leocg Does this mean that my type of UMX phone is not compatible with Opera for Android? Should I no longer use Opera and try a different browser?

  • @chakakhan

    Can you try our beta version? You can find it in Google Play (search for Opera beta).

  • @lordaiur

    That was a new change in this version. You can only disable the suggestion from Settings, Search, Suggested sites.

  • @miyukiwork Yes I have tried both the Beta Version and Opera Touch. Neither will allow me to upload photos or files to any webpage.

  • @chakakhan Just attached a file to an email message on Outlook365 and it worked fine.

  • @chakakhan

    For example, what happens when you are trying to upload an image to Twitter? In normal, this is what happens:

    1. Tap the new tweet button (+feather)
    2. Tap the image button (mountains)
    3. (allow permissions if you haven't)
    4. Choose an action, and choose Files
    5. Go to Images, then select an image

    At step5, the selected image is shown under what's happening?

    1. Not detect mp3 sources,
    2. Not detect radio sources,
    3. Not detect m3u8 sources,
    4. Not detect any video online source, some sites show video like m3u8,
    5. Can't save/preview any image by clickable (facebook, instagram, etc)
    6. Can't auto login to sites with password manager from google passwords.
    7. When i exit browser i want to delete everything i choose in the settings automatically, not manually.

    I use Soul Browser & Video Box. All these browsers have everything i write up.

    Were you using a UMX (unimax) u693cl phone???

    Thank You so much for actually trying to help me. I really appreciate it.

    At step 5 the image is selected and the then the webpage loads or reloads ( that loading line below the web address goes from left to right) and then nothing. No file is uploaded. No error message, nothing.
    Its the same for every website. I cant attach files/pics to emails. I cant upload images to facebook or twitter or any website.

    And additionally, If I try this action using private mode with with VPN, all the private tabs close. If I minimize the browser or select another App, all the private tabs close on their own.

    My phone is a UMX U693CL , from Assurance Wireless. Its government issued as part of the U.S. Federal Lifeline program. That means that hundreds of thousands of people in the Lifeline program have or will be issued this UMX phone.

    Opera for Android, Beta and Opera Touch being incompatible with UMX U693CL phones means that Opera is missing out on potentially hundreds of thousands of users.

    Thanks for your reply and explaining what's exactly happening. Did it work in earlier Opera versions?
    Does it work in Desktop mode(from the page menu "Desktop site")?

    No, I cannot upload files to any websites in desktop mode either. Thats one of the first solutions I attempted, but it did not solve the issue.

    I have only had my UMX (unimax) u693cl phone for about a month. So I havent used it with older versions of Opera for Android, Touch or Beta.

  • @chakakhan

    Thanks for your reply. If you could help us more, can you try Opera Mini? This product also has different browsing mode. If this also fails, it's hard for us to investigate the problem and you may want to contact the phone manufacturer.

    Hey, every time i open Opera anew, the butons get collapsed (see the screenshot) . It takes to open a new tab for the buttons to get properly aligned. I tried Opera Beta with no luck. Thank you.

  • @sabyackika

    Sorry about the experience. Did it start in version 61? Does it reproduce in both portrait and landscape orientation?

  • @miyukiwork
    Thank you for your reply.
    It is OK, the bug is not critical, rather inconvenient. I have not experienced it with Opera 60, I believe. Yes, it happens in both portrait and landscape orientation, but the essential condition when opening a link, is that Opera should not be running in background, but should be opened anew. I face the bug in two cases:

    1. When I close Opera with some page displayed, and then open the browser again.
    2. When I tap a link in some application and it invokes previously closed Opera and displays the content.
  • @miyukiwork Yes, Opera Mini does work and allows me to attach files to emails and post photos on twitter & facebook.

    My only problem with it is that Opera Mini doesnt have the built in VPN, which is why Opera is my preferred browser 😞
