I am using Webroot SecureAnywhere software and I just installed the Opera browser on my PC. I see that when I search the green check marks on safe websites are gone. I see that they are not officially supported on Opera. I saw a workarond that did not work for me. Has anyone made it work?
If the green check marks are gone, are Webroot Safe Shield and Firewall working and will they protect me if I stumble onto a non-safe site? Thanks for the help.

Thank you. It worked and the green check marks are now appearing when I search in Opera. Clicking on your link caused the extension to appear in Opera Extensions and I only had to install it. Thank you again.
Can I assume that Webroot Wed Shield and Firewall are also working in Opera?

You did not even need to do that. As Opera is now based on  the Chromium engine you can access the required extension directly from the Store by using this link:
Just another option for the future.
