I wish all Opera fans a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR.
From a long time Opera fan, now exiled to Google Chrome because Opera does not work with
Win 10 Sandboxie.
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!
Download Opera browser with:
Life is good again. Sandboxie opens Chrome like a bullet. No problems.
A very sad RIP to a beloved old friend after many years of close companionship - bye, bye Opera.
Perhaps in the distant future I will check Opera again, but Chrome is a magnificent browser, very much like Opera in many ways.
I have used Chrome in the past as my default browser and only changed to Opera because Chrome dumped support for XP. No support problems now with Windows 10.
I have decided to use Chrome as my browser. No problem there with Sandboxie.
Just right click the Chrome desktop icon, Sandboxie asks in drop down "run sandboxed", click it and Chrome opens fully Sandboxie sandboxed. No problems.
Doing exactly the same with Opera ? Failure as usual - white screen.
Goodbye Opera until you sort out your software like Chrome and Firefox have.
I have only had my new PC 3-4 days and am not yet conversant with it, Win 10 is a huge change after 14 years on Win XP. I am not able to manipulate Win 10 yet, so will have to leave these system adjustments until I have become more familiar and confident with Win 10.
I will use Chrome until Opera sorts out their software.
A zillion thanks for all the help you have given me.
I am deeply disappoinjted, but your last fix -
"C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" "C:\Users\YourUserNameHere\AppData\Local\Programs\Opera\launcher.exe" --no-sandbox
never worked - still a white screen.
Gone back to normal Opera opening.
Then why not for me ?
My computer is brand new, only 3 days old. I have done nothing but elementary learning and basic user operations. I am no novice, having had 14 years of experience, most of that using Sandboxie.
Chrome and Firefox work perfectly with Sandboxie and Opera does not, even with the DIY fixes applied.
Users should not have to fiddle about trying to make Opera work. Why should they when the other browsers give no problem. It is an Opera software matter.
