i'm sure it happened in the past, atm i don't seem to have that problem, but i'll keep an eye open if this problem pops up again. I'll report back here if there is an issue. But thank you for the reply that chrome extensions should be updated automatically just like Opera ones. i just recognized this before posting here.

Partly OT: Autoupdate of Chrome extensionsOpera add-ons
How does Opera handles Chrome extensions?
There is the following extension that allows you to install Chrome extenstions: https://addons.opera.com/extensions/details/download-chrome-extension-9/
Now i wonder how these chrome extension are updated once installed. From time to time i get a notification that an extension has been updated. But this is not happening for all extensions even if there is a new version already live on Chrome Web Store for some time. Is the update process handled by Opera Browser or the "Download Chrome Extension"? Does anybody got some information about this? Would be glad to get some explanations
RE: Regarding LastPass extension not getting updatedOpera add-ons
Thank you for your short explanation of the process! Good to hear all is right on your side
Sorry for being blunt, but after it happened the second time within a short period i thought something might be wrong... glad that it was just some odd coincidence. Now its LastPass turn!
Regarding LastPass extension not getting updatedOpera add-ons
It's about this extension: https://addons.opera.com/extensions/details/lastpass/
LastPass is one of the most popular extensions, and also featured as recommended on the Opera extension page.
According to LastPass-Support it's not getting updated because Opera is not approving any new version. Further it seems that new versions are not just rejected, they are not processed at all.
Letting user stuck with an outdated version of an extension that manages highly sensitive user data is insane!
As other extensions seem to get regular updates I wonder what where the problem is... Another popular extension i remember that had exactly the same problem in the past was Enhanced Steam. The developer was unable to get any response from Opera. The issue was solved after I started a thread here about it, pretty much the same way I'm doing now. And now I wonder if this is the usual way for Opera users to get regular updates for extensions?
Opera, please do something about that!

Thank you very much - just got the confirmation from the dev that there is some contact now!

See the latest comment of the developer (jshackles) regarding this issue: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/enhancedsteam#announcements/detail/130924979710327061
As other extensions get regular updates i wonder what is the issue here...
Enhanced Steam is one of the most useful extensions for me and it's sad to seeing it not getting updated for my favorite browser...
