General complaints for Opera. Because I see no "Contact Us" link.

  • So I upgraded to Opera 26 just now, and it broke the one extention I use on Opera, and the only reason I use the browser. All I want to do is downgrade to Opera 25 to continue to use the extention and I shouldn't have to torrent a copy of the Opera 25 exe and risk viruses or worse just because no one at opera can figure out how a "Previous version" repository works. Here's a link in case the people who run Opera's website forgot it existed: http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/

    The last update listed is for May 2014. I just wanted to go back to using 25 or even 24, not something that's apparently 400 builds old. I assume there are people on this site that can get in contact with the people who actually work at Opera. God forbid there's a "Contact us" or a "Live chat" button.

    So to the first mod who reads this and deems it too snarky to allow the "userbase" to read it, I don't care if it's deleted immediately. But tell someone with actual power to fix the previous versions repository. Because this is not how a software company(?) should treat their files. Backups of backups, people. Backups of backups.

    Incidentally, this edit box is abhorrent. Grab corners usually mean that you can drag it down, but this one seems to be horizontal only. Utterly useless. There's also no scrollbar, but there's certainly an emoticon button. There's also a Gravatar plugin. Someone has their priorities straight, that's for sure. This isn't 1999. There's no excuse for shoddy HTML work. And this also isn't facebook. There's no need for Avatars and emoticons on what I assumed was a Support Board.

    Happy new year. :party:

  • You could get the previous version from the FTP site, you know.

    ftp://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/desktop/

  • Oh. Handy. Why isn't that link the one provided on the support page.

    Thank you for your help.
