Opera GX Twitch Error "Your extension was disabled because it is corrupted"

  • I've been using Opera GX for just over a month now after being recommended by a friend because of it's extensive features with things like Discord, Twitter, and Twitch.

    However after starting my computer the other morning, the Twitch shortcut on the sidebar wasn't appearing, and after looking into my settings I found the switch for the Twitch feature. After flicking it back on, it appears and promptly disappears again, switching back off and displaying the message on the top of the browser saying "Your extension was disabled because it is corrupted. Go to the extensions manager to repair it."

    The extensions manager provides no further information, as its not even shown in the list of GX extensions. Other forums provide no solutions, and as I'm sure other people experience the same issue, I couldn't find any solutions. If there's anything I should try to repair this, please do let me know.

  • Are you sure you can't click that switch? Can you try to screenshot the error.

  • @caneydian Try it in a standalone installation if you want. (Do not install any extensions and do not enable Opera Sync). Does it work fine there?

  • @greenify I can click the switch, and it switches to on and Twitch appears on the sidebar, but after about a fraction of a second the switch turns off again and it disappears off the sidebar.

    Here's a video of what happens when I do: https://gyazo.com/bbd4c05ca9c5a732c675960071385f68

  • same error i need help to

  • Try creating a new Opera GX profile and see if it works:

    In the Opera program files directory, right-click on launcher.exe to create a new shortcut and place it on your desktop. Then, on the desktop, rename it what you want. Then, right-click on the shortcut, go to properties and then the "shortcut" tab. On that tab, modify the target to add the --user-data-dir command-line switch.

    For example:

    "C:\Program Files (X86)\Opera\launcher.exe" "--user-data-dir=C:\Users\yourusername\Opera2"
    (I personally have a "My Program Files" folder in "C:\Users\myusername", so I'd use "C:\Users\myusername\My Program Files\Opera2" for example.)

    You can create as many shortcuts as you want with each using a different profile folder.

    Here's a GIF on how to do it (I can't upload it here as it's too big)
