@yurigeinish the ublock origin extension has the option to "block remote fonts on this site" . But if you use this extension, you should disable the built in adblocker as it would be redundant.

RE: Opera on Ubuntu missing maximise, minimise and close buttons.Opera for Linux
On mine, a double click on top bar will demaximise to window. Also a click and hold on top bar with a small swipe down will work. I'm on manjaro xfce desktop, but will probably work on others.
I guess they removed the window components to make more viewable space. But who knows if it is a permanent change?
RE: Ubuntu-Mate Opera failing to load web pages - possible DNS IssueOpera for Linux
Just rename opera directory to something else. Then give it a shot.
It will automatically recreate the opera dir but you can see if it works with the newly created dir.
Then if you want to give the original directory another try, rename it back to opera after deleting the newly created one.
First, though you should try opera://settings/clearBrowserData, check every box but passwords and see if that helps. Also leave VPN or Turbo off until you get it working normally.
RE: Tracker blocking extensionsLounge
Opera already contains Easylist and Easyprivacy, lists which are part of the builtin addblocker. Make sure both are activated.
EasyPrivacy is an optional supplementary filter list that completely removes all forms of tracking from the internet, including web bugs, tracking scripts and information collectors, thereby protecting your personal data."*
As far as that permission, it is necessary for some extensions to function. So it is a matter of trust and reputation, I suppose. But the permission doesn't imply that it collects and exchanges personal data, or if it can.
Here is the summary of the main adblocker filters available:
RE: VPN SAFELounge
I think those two are more in the realm of malware protection. But a vpn usually provides an encrypted tunnel. If you can use both 1 antimalware and a vpn simultaneously, that is the safest. Bitdefender seems to be well-regarded for antimalware. The opera vpn has been around for quite awhile.
