All day today Opera has not been working.
No Internet browsing and no VPN.
Can anybody explain this ?
My version is 60.0.3255.56
For Windows 10 64 bit
It will not update, comes back as failed
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!
Download Opera browser with:
I have been using Opera VPN consistently under the confidence that Opera treats my security
seriously and that their is no hanky-panky going on with the VP provider.
Can somebody please assure me that my data and surfing activities using the Opera VPN is personally
secure and safe to use.
I have read this - https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/693700/opera-vpn/ and end up
I need an Opera users opinion.
STOP PRESS !
The latest on this matter - February 2019 - Opera is now compatible with Sandboxie
and the initial incompatibility with Opera is now solved.
Opera can now be Sandboxied.
Opera VPN on my PC is working perfect. I have been located in Sweden and Holland so far, without leaving my lounge.
It may only be an upmarket proxy, but for free and unrestricted web surfing use, it is marvellous.
Critics are just making nit-picking noises, it is superb for my purposes.
I had a security alert from my email provider, because the logon was in Sweden instead of my normal UK location.
Proves it works !
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.
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.
