Hi,

 

I'm trying out the Opera browser but I have come to a problem. While playing a game, I click on a button to collect something and then up pops this window saying about information is going to be sent from the secure page to an unsecured one.

 

I have added the unsecured pages to the trusted zone. I've also used wild card for that as well but nothing works and it is very annoying.

 

How can I turn this off?  I know that the solution exists as I used it once a friend's computer despite Opera saying it doesn't.

 

Thanks

Nobody knows the answer?

 

If I find it again I will post it here.

I have been using Opera in all it's versions for over 12 years and have never seen a popup like you describe. I have looked and have not found a solution for you yet. If I do, I'll post as well.

This comes up when you are on a secured connection and it tries to send info by one that's unsecured.

 

I'm not sending anything important but just clicking a yes button in a game to collect or do something. Sometimes this double clicking costs me things in the game as I can't click fast enough.

 

Anyway, I can send a picture of it if you want.

 

Thanks anyway.

I work with a VPN in my normal course of duties for my 'day job'. I have had to walk on the wild side on occasion for my functions here. So I have traversed the secured and unsecured scenario many times still have never seen what you describe. I have a vanilla install of Opera with 3 extensions which have nothing to to do with connectivity. I can gather what the pop-ups are like. I'm sure they are quite similar to IE's version of those annoying things.

I'm not allowed to use a certain extension on this forum. I'm sorry I can't show you the actual image as this forum "Bleepingcomputer" doesn't allow it!!

All I can say is do a general search for 

Security Warning
Information from this secure page will be submitted to a page that is not secure on *****.com.   Submitting sensitive information is strongly discouraged.

 

Many people complain about this!!

Are you using a personal computer or a work computer?

I'm working on my own computer... I did install Opera a while ago but I took it off the computer for this problem. At that time it wasn't important about this. Now I'm really trying out Opera, I've come across this problem again!! Research on the net has shown that there are many people with this problem not only me.

I've been using Opera for at least a few years too, and I haven't experienced this particular problem either. At least not with Opera. I have seen similar warnings using Firefox/PaleMoon. That is, if what you're referring to looks like this:

Sec.%20Warning.jpg
Image from post #6 in this thread: http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=420511.

But evidently many others have.

It doesn't look like there is a configuration option within Opera to disable this warning. Apparently the only possible "work around", with Opera, is to use "http" instead of "https" for those sites/pages that cause the problem.

Can't say I recommend the "work around", and it may not be possible with some sites/pages.

If the "work around" isn't feasible, I guess using another browser for those sites would be the only other option.

 

Edit:

Hope you don't mind my asking, but what "certain extension" aren't you allowed to use?

It is the same as your image above. A little cosmetically different a bit, maybe due to the windows or Opera version.

There aren't any extensions. This warning comes up when there is a connection from a secure page to an unsecured one. All I'm doing is pressing a button to collect something. No sensitive data is being transferred. As I said in my first post, I did find the method to stop this once on my friend's old computer.
