So has anyone been successful downloading Opera Stable desktop update 57.0.3098.91 as shown on Opera blogs?
Simple question that I would appreciate an answer from Opera please:
Does Opera have a problem with this Stable update please? Y/N?
Welcome. I'm in the UK so unsure if this may assist.
My broadband provider has an issue at network level with some of its settings.
It's not an Opera fault, but when I enable some extra provider settings, it stops Opera VPN working which they're working on.
Unfortunately at this time I can't use Opera VPN as I made some changes to check for my provider, restarted, and it wouldn't work for me.
I couldn't change network settings back to how they were as I found their site down for maintenance. Just my bad luck and bad timing.
It will be up again in a few hours so I can revert back and Opera VPN will work.
For me it's a network issue, not an Opera issue.
Using Windows10 latest version with Opera Stable v54.0.2952.64
Hi, I leave one space then just one hyphen before private (-private), w/o brackets.
After making changes, remember to restart. Clicking the shortcut will then start Opera in private mode on every startup. Works on all streams on Win7 and Win10.
OS Win10 64-bit and on Win7 Pro 32-bit, using Opera v54.0.2952.64.
Not all saved speed dials show themselves on start page after Opera startup, UNLESS reloading start page. Same has happened on a few previous versions as well.
Also happens on beta and dev streams. Unsure if this is known issue (I did look first).
No apology necessary my friend. Hope you get your issue resolved soon.
Hi, no problem with font for me on .64 using Win7 Pro 32-bit. All fonts are as normal.
Hi, already tried with installer, profile etc, and this only started with recent Opera updates, but I think that is coincidental.
There really is no issue with Adobe Flash v188.8.131.52 and it works well.
As I mentioned, I needed to use Flash in the first place to get to the point I'm having issues with.
I used exactly the same sett's on both machines, and also tried with USB portable, with versions 54/55/56.
All with same results except for that already mentioned above. Tried with VPN and Block Adds disabled. No change.
As I have no problems elsewhere using Adobe Flash, I'm thinking this may be an issue with the site visited itself even though they say it's not.
That said, the links are not broken because there are no issues using other browsers, including the site I have to visit, except for the two links mentioned (using Opr), and the fact other browsers show me the requested data.
Think I may try rolling backing to previous Opera version as there were no issued then.
Can't put pic up as detail is confidential. Just imagine your viewing a dark grey screen (as though the info had been redacted - if you get my meaning).
Already tried "Allow sites to run Flash". Same result.
I will try flags as mentioned (will try that from dev).
Thank you for your thoughts which are appreciated.
Win7 Pro 32-bit, tried all up to date opera channels on desktop. PC is up to date.
Please bear with me whilst I seek advice from some clever soul.
I have to visit an online account daily which requires Adobe Flash. This is up to date and works without issue. I've had no recent problems.
Since recent Opera updates, there are two sections of one site where Adobe flash returns a dark grey screen so I can't see my requested data. Adobe Flash was needed to arrive at that point in the first place, and I've done all necessary testing to eliminate possible issues.
So I tried using IE on same machine with all Opr channels. There were no issues (except I hate using IE). Opera has been my default browser for ever, with few issues.
Went to same site on Win10 machine and checked via Edge browser, and again no issues (except I also hate Edge and rarely use it), but was able to view the info requested.
From Win10, opened Opr Stable, entered the site concerned no problem, then clicked the links in question. (By the way, I have Flash set to ask me first before it opens a link, and I click "allow" at top of page).
Clicked the link and it wouldn't open, but I noticed a pop-up alert had prevented the link opening, so I allowed it to open, which then presented me with the secure info I was after.
Went back to Win7 (this machine), checked Opr sett's and noticed pop-ups always blocked, so just for testing set it to always allow then restarted.
Entered the site concerned, clicked the link for info I wanted, but was again presented with a dark grey page so I couldn't see my data.
Have contacted provider and everything okay with them.
Sorry this is so long-winded, but would appreciate any thoughts please? Thank you.
(Apologies if not correct forum).
@burnout426 Thank you for the info. I've read the browserauth.net url you mention and would agree there lies the answer. Worth a read to those like myself having concerns, though I would hope Opera give their own explanation.
Perhaps Opera devs may at some point add that info, or similar, to blogs.opera.com, in order to help loyal Opera users understand?
@leocg Thank you Leo. My default search engine is DuckDuckGo and has been so for a long time. This has become a recent issue with present Opera updates where it wasn't happening previously!
Interestingly, Even when changing Opera default cookie setting from recommended to "Block sites from setting any data", "Google.com" still sets a cookie upon start.
Am aware Opera based upon Chromium, but surely when the user has set default settings and restarted, one should not expect this intrusive cookie to appear?
