  • Dear people,

    is it possible to change the update mode of "new" Opera - preferably to something like "notify only" instead of silent background updates? I'm sitting on a slow line at home so that I'd prefer to just be notified that a new version is available - I can then download an offline package at work.
    The only "option" I've found so far is disabling updates altogether by jumping through hoops like setting system variables, disabling scheduled tasks (and hoping that I haven't overlooked something else and Opera silently starts downloading updates again anyway );<

    The easiest (for the user 😉 way would certainly be a simple setting ("no autoupdating", "notify before download", "notify before installation", "update silently" - the way Firefox or eg. Adobe Reader offers it), but even such an unnecessarily complicated solution like Google offers it for their updater (group policies) would still be better than the present situation IMHO...

    Thanks a lot!

  • Not currently. Moved to Suggestion Box, since it counts as a feature request.

  • Yeah I would like "notify before download" too.
    Please consider it.
