I can't say what's up with your EE account in opera.

I think I can help with the default browser issue though.  When you try to open a webpage in an app, you should have originally been prompted which browser to use and you would have been given the option "just this time" or "always."  If you selected chrome and always, it'll open everything in Chrome without asking.

To clear this setting goto Settings then Apps.  Scroll down to Chrome.  Scroll down and you should see a "Launch by Default" section which says "You've chosen to launch this app by default for some actions." and a "clear defaults" option.  Click "Clear Defaults."

The next time you click a link to a webpage, it should prompt you which browser to use and Opera should be an option (provided that it supports being the default browser).

--now, why you'd opt for Opera over Chrome might be a good question, but I'll leave that to you....

Hope this helps.

the reason I want to use opera bc an expert in EE recommended it as the preferred to choice to record videos from Facebook or else where. I posted my original question as any apps easy to use to record/download videos from Facebook or other sites. That's what I was received as a reply

I have no experience with Opera's ability to record/download facebook videos.  If there's an expert saying that's what you should use, go for it...

I hope that my suggestion for getting Opera to be your default browser (or at least having the tablet prompt for which browser to use) worked for you.

Also, in terms of not having access to your EE account on opera, I wonder if the login failed or cookies were disabled.  Try again?

The EE mobile version has is a relatively new version and you might just be experiencing some bugs, also I don't think that they do anything to specifically support Opera because the small amount of traffic using Opera does not justify applying resource to Opera support.

If the problem continues, I would suggest you post a question in Community Support to see if they can help you get a better experience with mobile on the site.

I do not have an EE mobile app. There is no such thing comes up in the play store. I was referring to accessing EE as a website in the opera browser.
Thanks

@CD is referring to the mobile website, not a mobile app.  Maybe sites, EE included, are smart enough to say "hey, this person is using a mobile phone, so I should show the mobile version."  Mobile versions of websites typically are designed to be narrow and more concise than their desktop counterparts.
