Enabling extensions is private browsing

  • I recently tried installing and extension, and tried enabling it for private browsing. The option for enabling/disabling it for other extensions was also gone-- the extensions appear locked in the previously set settings. Do other people have this issue? Thanks!

  • Do other people have this issue?

    Nope, i still can see the "enable in private mode" option here.

  • I received this response from the Opera Q/A team:

    The only way for this to happen is when following entry is added to your Preferences file in your profile:

    "incognito": {

    "mode_availability": 1


    I do not find this in my Preferences file. Does anybody know what is wrong with my browser? (I am using Windows 7 32-bit.)
