Hi there,

All such "Xdebug Helper" extensions just set the Xdebug cookie when you want to debug and remove it when you do not need it. It does not do anything PhpStorm-specific (will work with any IDE/editor that supports Xdebug debugging).

It's possible that Xdebug extension is no longer available/compatible with latest Opera versions. Try one from Chrome -- maybe it will work there as well (since they both based on Chromium) -- https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/xdebug-helper/eadndfjplgieldjbigjakmdgkmoaaaoc?hl=en

Alternatively just use another browser for dev purposes (e.g. Firefox Developer Edition / Chrome with different user profile etc)


So, current versions of opera do not support XDebug? Maybe this could be a good issue to work on because opera is now one of the best browsers, despite of this "little" details...

Try Xdebug for Chrome extension:



If it does not work via that special extension, then maybe try installing it from Chrome store directly: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions
