@PeterLanky I agree, I do not like work arounds. Currently my solution is to uninstall version 68 which is the faulty one, and to use version 67 which works correctly. I have had to stop the auto update which works most of the time b7ut it still tries to update. In fact as I write this it asked if I wanted to update.
From what I have found there was a change between versions 67 and 68 that stopped the location from working correctly.
Hopefully someone in Opera will see this and rectify it.
