The captive portal to access Wi-Fi Internet is not available

We have a captive portal in our university which requires just to press a button to start using Internet. But it doesn't work with Opera(((
What I do is funny))) I run FireFox, it says you need to go to access page, I agree, it opens detectportal.firefox.com/canonical.html, which somehow redirects to the address of our local captive portal page (its address contains random numbers, so I can't bookmark it), on which I press the welcome button, and the Internet goes. Then I shutdown FireFox, run Opera and use the Internet)))
How to make Opera find our captive portal, please? I run WIndows 10 and my Opera is up-to-date.

@mardiyah, of course, I tried with all the extentions off, no change
@leocg, I've got Chrome, it acts just the same: Opera and Chrome say ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED.
Meanwhile Firefox shows a hint saying (not literally) 'You have to go to a spectial page to use this network' and a button 'Open the page'. Then it goes to their detectportal.firefox.com/canonical.html, which somehow redirects to our local address, which today was:
http://c3.glhs.ru/pr/2c83d107b74e5a0ec77b48b06ba95d1e/index?pi=3166 (it will be different the other time). There I press 'Go to Internet' of our university, and all the programs use the Internet.

In Opera and Chrome, try going to http://clients3.google.com/generate_204 to see what happens.
