    You can get into Opera extensions from the browser GUI itself. Just click the big red O for the dropdown & click 'Extensions' ~ 'Get Extensions'.

    o_O

    How do you get into Tools? I know the dropdown on the GUI & Ctrl F12, Shift F12 & F12.

    @Daveski17,

    You have to click on that "big red O" and select "Show Menu Bar" in order to see "Tools".

    I know but Ghostery for Opera is not there.
    Going to Ghostery's website here for the extension still gets me the same 404 error.

    Is anyone else getting the same results?

    Have you tried writing the word 'Ghostery' in the search box on the Opera extensions site?

    I can get that link. Are you using NotScripts or have any content blocking?

    Currently using no extensions at all here.
    Disabling AdMuncher does not help.
    Strange why this is happening. o_O

    I can get to the website fine, but clicking on the download link is where I get the 404 error.

    No idea what this Ghostery thingie does. I did read a bit on their site and I decided to download just to take a look. I wonder if I need it. Anyway, here's my navigation through Opera
    Extensions1.png
    and
    Extensions2.png

    Is there some button to click on this thing to see whatever it wants to show?

    It should have started up with a wizard so that you can set your preferences. It (the wizard) is pretty straightforward. The 'blue ghost' icon should be in the GUI. Click on the icon & a dropdown will give you a menu, choose options (the 'gears' icon) & set up from there.

    I have started to get that, I downloaded an Opera skin fine, I can even get into my Opera Mail site. Then, when I try to get to Opera Community I get the 404. It must be at their end.

    Opera's servers have always been a little 'iffy' IMHO. They seem OK now though.
