This behavior is the same on both GX and regular version. I have been using Opera in my working environment for several years and have had no problems. We have several functions that will pop up a desired popup. Turning off Privacy Protection has always allowed those popups. However the newest version will not allow these popups to work even if Privacy Protection is turned off. This is a significant problem for me because as part of my work flow I need these popups to work. I have been reduced to using Edge which is a good browser but does not give me features like workspaces which I use heavily.
Is there a hidden Dev setting that I can look for? I really don't want to have to abandon Opera.
