Opera Proxy

  • I was checking my IP on and it shows a proxy address under Opera, but not Firefox. Every once in a while, I try to log in to forums, but am prevented with a message saying my IP has been banned. This would explain why I am having this problem.

    How do I turn this proxy feature off in Opera?

    I am using Opera 12 for Linux.

  • Disable/remove tick from 'Opera-Menu / Settings /Quick preferences / Enable proxy servers' ?.

    Or disable 'Opera Turbo' found via 'Opera-Menu / Settings / Preferences... / Web pages', top option.

  • What does Turbo have to do with proxies? Enable proxy servers was not checked.

  • What does Turbo have to do with proxies?

    A quote from Opera themselves, about their Opera Turbo service.

    How does Opera Turbo work?

    The technology behind Opera Turbo is a proxy server with server-side compression of webpages. A compression rate of up to 80% can be achieved, in part by reducing the quality of images. If you want to view an image uncompressed, right-click on the image, and select "Reload Image in Full Quality".
