@leocg I tried to get it to happen again from a different IP on a different computer and couldnt get it to happen, but it was the most legitimately designed page I've seen. It genuinely looked like a real update page that could have been created within the browser. If anyone else clicks it and gets it to pop up, take a screenshot.

Here is the JS file itself. (7zipped for security) https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ZMjHAD700AKchyiViDPD6wcaUh0kct44
Here is the text out of the JS file https://pastebin.com/rYFsdfTj
it looks like a bunch of arrays and obfuscated code. I dont know JS well enough to decipher it.
Specifically this was the website I was on. http://justsomething.co/kitten-breaks-his-owners-earphone-cable-and-returns-with-snake-as-a-replacement/?fbclid=IwAR00IFQZAMtKldKhe2w5-s3_-5kiANpfp_RmvsZJHrbxVrh1ih15FWVoV-I
The update screen just popped up, it didnt change the web address, in fact history shows the website url with Opera update as the url. I was previously on 62.0.1 or something like that, it only updated a minor build

This is what Chrome uses in Enterprise, which I never successfully got to work https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/187948?hl=en
Instead we tried using registry keys and group policy to set with no success.
This is where you can read all about what is causing the issue https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=419855
And this is my very old post noting the issue beginning in Opera 58
Opera 60 Extensions and Settings Reset after Windows DeploymentOpera for Windows
Managing an IT department, we've fully switched from Chrome to Opera due to Chrome resetting user installed extensions and settings after deploying the image to other machines. Unfortunately this behavior has been picked up by Opera and is CRITICAL to it's functionality. Many IT professionals despise chrome for this reason and many will also leave Opera if this is not resolved.
In Chrome this behavior is due to user data being tied to machine ID in an encrypted folder, which is no longer the same after deployment forcing chrome to make a new user for each machine.
In Opera I assume the same is the problem, however not all settings get reset certain things, specifically the "suggested speed dials" and pre-installed extensions are missing from deployed images.
Please for the love of all IT departments do not follow chrome's lead and just allow us to deploy a fully configured browser without needing manual intervention, or give us simple means to do so.
- Install Opera 60 and preconfigure it with desired extensions and settings
- Run Sysprep
- Install drive in another computer and leave System Audit mode
- On original user account in different computer Opera is partially reset.
RE: Create your own "sidebar"Opera for Windows
Interesting alternative, however I agree that the sidebar should have never been removed from the speed dial. Its infuriating that Opera forces users to always have a sidebar that is completely useless while web browsing, but remove it in the one place that makes sense.
I would also go as far as to advocate that turning on the sidebar after every update regardless of settings is not serviceable. I cannot count the amount of service calls I get about turning it off on the countless machines i've deployed Opera to.
RE: Dark Theme on Opera 60Opera for Windows
I'm right there with you, 100% on any monitor the blue looks terrible and the context menus look like trash. Honestly as someone who deploys opera to hundreds of machines, I think the new look is far from professional and not serviceable as a professional recommendation.
In any dark theme it is critical to not use a color, it either needs to be white, black or any shade therein because of their neutrality that will complement or contrast any other content. Blue does not complement any other pages than white, and looks absolutely abhorrent on dark websites. neutral tones, here, not primary colors, you have from 00000 to FFFFFF to work with.
Honestly I cant express how much I dislike the look of the new design, and honestly am seriously considering changing to Firefox on that principle alone.
