Hello, when PM 2.30 came out, I wanted to use the free downloads, but I noticed, that it was telling me in Opera, that I'm already at the access limit, although I wasn't downloading anything. When I used the same link in Firefox, it instantly worked.
So what gives? Is Opera blocking some API access that is used to determin the amount of connections to a server or what?

Opera is using a built-in public VPN/proxy system, which means that your IP address will be the same as some other users'. Which is detected by our server as being "more than 2 downloads".
I actually don't recommend using Opera

The thing is, you can disable the Opera VPN (which it is by default). I was confused as it also wasn't mentioned anywhere on the page...
