@s390g2 Thanks for the response. I have already activated the EasyPrivacy filter list but didn't really know what it was until now. I'm not sure I believe this filter list removes all trackers as it claims but then again we've no real way of proving that with extensions either. The plus for Disconnect is that I can toggle content blockers on and off (some are vital for page functionality). Opera's EasyPrivacy is just a simple on or off.
I do understand permissions are necessary for extensions to be able to function. It makes sense a tracker blocker would need to access my browsing data. It's unfortunate that extensions are extremely vague as to what these permissions are doing for a specific extension. I assume Disconnect is just monitoring browsing data to search for trackers. No way of really knowing though.
@zalex108 Thanks for the response but I already have that option selected (forgot to point that out). Closing the browser doesn't remove these files, even with 'Keep local data only until I quit my browser' selected. Only manual removal works.
Not a user of disconnect ext *sorry.. but if this helps
Facebook login Works gr8 w/o disconnect & w/o vpn or with vpn on Opera 49 beta & Opera 49 stable on win 8.1 & win 10..
If you are logging in w/o vpn check to see that Firewall not blocking any of these ips ranges (184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11) & (18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124) on https port 443 & or on http port 80
The problem with this Google cookie seems to be related to Opera 48 as Opera beta 49 does clear all cookies. I'm loosing count the number of issues I've had with Opera 48 (mostly rendering quite a few websites). Beta 49 so far doesn't seem to have these issues.
But Opera Mini for iOS and Opera Mini for android are very different, so I think they should split up these two
That's what I was suggesting - sorry, not very familiar with the Android OS and it's browsers. The different platforms should be separate as the Opera Mini forum is a bit messy imho at the moment as posts can relate to any of six different platforms i.e 3 different OS's on tablet and phone. Maybe just Opera Mini for iOS , Opera Mini for Android, Opera Mini for Windows forums and leave it for people to specify phone or tablet browser in their posts. After all, the desktop browser has been separated by platform.
Do you get the same issue in Chrome?
Any extensions installed in Opera?
Try a user agent switching extension to make Opera mask as Firefox or Chrome and see if that makes a difference.
In Opera, did you change anything in opera://flags from the default?
I would also really like to have it the way that cozza describes it, I know you can remove the bookmark directly from the heart menu in the latest developer version, but it's still annoying that it adds from the beginning.
me too. in opera devloper 29, by clicking the heart menu, you can choose which items will appear (perform as logo-web, site-letter, sreenshot, etc..) and using the right click only allow us to display the speed dial thumnails as site-letters
this is a good suggestion:]]
Thanks for the advice. Yes I think Disconnect is partly the culprit. I have clicked 'Whitelist Site' in the dropdown menu which has corrected the comments formatting for some sites. I also tried disabling third party cookies on Macworld.com which has worked (but like saudiqbal, its not ideal). A lot of sites do warn you to accept third party cookies before commenting though. Bah, seems we're in the wrong for wanting to browse safely! ;).
Mercury and Dolphin-- both quite good -- have the adblockers. And they are both excellent browsers. Now I prefer Coast because of the wonderful aesthetics that make me feel so totally self-sufficient in Coast. If Coast could add an ad-blocker it would make it even better, as long as it doesn't apprecianly slow the browser. It wouldn't be worth it for me if it slows browsing.
I think there should be option box in Operas options. It's really frustrating to try to create script for command line argument. Really there should be a toggle in Options menu to allow this. Firefox has it already (Always open in private mode).
