RE: Opera Updates Change Mail Handler Preferences
Well, I thought this was fixed, as a previous update to Opera did not change the mail handler settings to Opera itself. Then, updated Opera again his morning to Version:62.0.3331.18, and low and behold..... the first email link I click on, tries to handle it through Opera, asking for my gmail login information. This is getting ridiculous. Now, every time I update Opera, I have to fix the stupid video playback issue, and change my mail handler setting back to Thunderbird!
Edit: Even after changing the mail handler preference back to Thunderbird, it still tries to handle it in Opera. When this first started, I could change the preference back to Thunderbird, close Opera and open it again, and it worked properly by opening a new email in Thunderbird, when clicking on an email link. This time, it wont. It shows Thunderbird as my preferred application for mail, but when I click on an email link in Opera, it tries to handle it in Opera through a gmail account online. I logged out of/back into Mint.... still wrong. I rebooted the system.... still wrong. The preferences still show Thunderbird, but it still tries to handle it in Opera. Im about ready to go back to Firefox and be done with these aggravations.
Edit #2: It is now working again. Simply going through the steps above, did not rectify the situation. For grins and giggles, I changed the mail handler to Kmail. Shut down Opera, and opened it back up. Then I changed it to Thunderbird, shut down Opera, and opened it back up.... and NOW it finally is working correctly!
