RE: Updating questionOpera for Windows
@leocg That seems overly complex. Once the new one is installed, then if you go to your Add / Remove Programs (or whatever uninstaller you use) you will only see the newest version listed. I simply delete the older folder and then be sure the shortcut is pulling up the newest version.
Updating questionOpera for Windows
When opera decides to update, why does it insist on creating a new folder with the most current version number ?
It also does not delete the older version folder which no longer works and must be deleted manually. In some cases
you also have to edit the desktop shortcut to point to the new opera.exe location .... And today, for some reason the
very latest version 116 is not on ftp site to download
RE: (Opera 36) Facebook loading the mobile pageOpera for Windows
I did try clearing Cookies and Browser History with no effect. It seems Facebook must have changed something, as Opera 36 on Windows 10 no longer works properly on Facebook. But it does on my Windows XP SP3 machine (same browser Opera 36) .. I was trying to do a Repair of Opera and what ended up happening is it updated to Opera 62 .0.3331.18 .. I am running the 32 bit version on my Toshiba Windows 10 Home 64 System and Facebook now loads fine. I have no need for the 64 bit Opera at this time. I will add the User Agent Switcher as it may come in handy sometime.
(Opera 36) Facebook loading the mobile pageOpera for Windows
For some reason using Opera 36 on Windows 10 Home 64 Laptop when I type in: https://www.facebook.com it is being displayed as: https://m.facebook.com/?_rdr
which is the Facebook Mobile page .. How do I get this back to Desktop Mode ? ? I can not find anyway to do so on Facebook even from another browser. FYI: On my Windows XP Desktop with the same version of Opera it works correctly ... Thank you
