For myself I stopped using Flash Player about a year ago and not experienced any issues. If i were you I would uninstal it. As a person who has had difficulty with updating Opera in the past you could download the full offline installer as I sometimes do,making sure it instals to correct directory. If you suspect something is wrong with a profile you could do a standalone instal so that all files get installed to one folder and sub folders therein and then create a new profile. I usually find if i'm looking at email or anything not browser related Opera usually (eventually) will update itself. I hope one of these will be a solution for you.

RE: Why Doesn't Opera Limit Number Of "Stable" ReleasesOpera for Windows
My slow adsl connection averages at 6-7mbs in a suburb of a large town. Some people in the countryside only get 2mbs, if they are lucky.
As for dial up do a search for "aol dial up users" or see https://www.quora.com/How-many-people-still-use-America-Online-AOL-and-if-so-why
Why Doesn't Opera Limit Number Of "Stable" ReleasesOpera for Windows
I am a person who likes to keep my computer up to date and it is annoying when Opera introduces a newer stable version only a few days after the previous update................... Why can't Opera introduce say fortnightly updates and only release new stable updates at that time and only make an exception when a newer version of Chromium is available or a serious bug fix? Some people like myself are on slow ADSL connections and it is a bind having to update several machines. You will say Opera has a built in updater,well from years of experience its a hit and miss affair.The same with the "check for updates" button. I pity the poor people who are still on dial up. I can remember a few years ago downloading a backup programme of 100MB on dial up, and it took seven hours.
"Profile Error Occurred" - Message On Opera StartupOpera for Windows
When starting Opera recently I get a message headed "Profile Error Occurred" and goes on to say "Your preferences files cannot be read. Some features may be unavailable and changes to settings won't be saved" This usually happens on a standalone instal of Opera, I notice something similar has happened with chrome see https://www.wintips.org/how-to-fix-your-preferences-can-not-be-read-error-in-chrome-solved Has anyone else experienced this in Opera ?
Opera Profile Problem After attempting UpdateOpera for Windows
I tried today to update my Opera standalone from version 60 (sub 151) something to the new 62 version. I tried using the inbuilt updater but that failed.
So i downloaded the full offline installer,virus checked it and tried to get the instal on top of the existing installation, something I often do. However after the installer completed and Opera opened their was a message in a box about a failed profile, never had this problem before. Can someone comment please ?
RE: How To Know What Version To Download ?Opera for Windows
Thanks for the replys. I do check for latest Opera versions on the blogs page, but the page is often filled with unrelated stuff than just the stable versions. It would be a good idea to have a seperate page just showing the stable versions that have been released.
As for downloading from www.opera.com the offline installer has not been available for many months. leocg is suggesting that I download files, to put it simply one at a time where they could escape my antivirus checks. It has been sometime since I used this method but I also think by doing this Opera would make certain assumptions where it should be installed, and the type of installation. I have several computers and have some standalone versions, also some full installations in directories other than Program Files etc.
How To Know What Version To Download ?Opera for Windows
Ok , I'm using the "normal" version of Opera and went to the ftp site and downloaded the "151" sub version. However there are others listed with "bigger" numbers. Is "151" the latest "normal" release and how do users know which versions to download when Opera is developing a gaming browser. I am confused !
Error 504 Page Took Too Long To RespondOpera for Windows
When I click a link to a certain page after about 5 seconds I get an error message 504 saying page took too long to respond and did I want to try again by pressing a button, which results in the same message. The page is important to me and although it works 50% of the time I wondered if there was anything in Operas settings that would force pages to wait a longer time period so as to possibly avoid the error message.
Download Moans For Official SiteOpera for Windows
I usually download full offline installer for each new stable release of Opera, rather than wait (forever) for Opera to update itself automatically. Anyways at the download site there used to be four versions to choose from to download Windows package. Now for no reason there are EIGHT with the latest release. Can someone say what the reason is for the increase in number , and where the imformation is documented for this increase. Thank you.
