Each time I open the Opera, I get a prompt right under the bookmark's tab that the extension update needs some additional permission, with a "Go to extensions" button (screenshot 1). After I click it I am taken to the Extensions page, in which I was not able to see anything to be updated at the first glance. I found in one forum thread here that there's a developer mode which can be enable - I did that and then I saw some sort of an "Update" button appearing (screenshot 2). I clicked it, for a moment a small information was shown saying that extensions were updated (screenshot 3), and I could see that there are no updates in the updates section (screenshot 4). However, when I closed and opened the Opera browser, the same prompt keeps popping up, even though there's no update to be done in the extensions tab.
What I tried to do:
- rebooted the Opera
- rebooted the computer
- cleared cookies and cache files in the Opera
- uninstalled and installed Opera again
- removed all extensions, so the only extension I have now is the Opera adblocker
- turned off Opera adblocker
Unfortunately none of the above helped.
It's very irritating that the pop up appears every time, and there's even no option to close as I can do is to use the "go to extension" button to open new tab, and only then it disappears.
- Windows 10 Home 64-bit
- Opera v 72.0.3814.148
Could you please assist me with solving the problem?
