The Opera browser recently introduced a VPN feature.

When turned on, it tunnels traffic through their (Opera Software's) proxy.

When opening Stack Exchange pages like


I get

 Page Not Found
We couldn't find the page you requested. But we haven't looked inside your computer for it. Yet.

Those pages work in direct connection as usual.

I can see the Stack Exchange page, but not the content.

Enter image description here

I've checked the network response, and it seems that the proxy responds with 404 on http version of URL is reached.

When I try the same URL with https it works. So I assume it's a problem with Opera.

  • I can see you are logged in from the screenshot, what I don't see is what the URL is (assuming it is the same as what you posted?). That would most likely mean that the VPN/Opera is mangling the URL when issuing the request to our servers.

Our sites work well on most VPN solutions.

We can't fix a broken VPN solution.

What you are describing is the VPN completely blocking access to our site - there is nothing we can do to change it.

I suggest reporting this to Opera so they can fix the issue.

  • Its not typical proxy level blocking i think because i can see SU header and picture. Just to be clear i edited the question.

    They might be rewriting URLs, making them invalid. Or messing around with cookies. Again - something they need to fix.
