This seems to affect and .de as well (probably all Google tlds) and

I see they whitelist,,, and in their own adblocker by default. You can see and remove these exceptions in the UI (opera://settings/adBlockerExceptions). But their adblocker is not enabled by default and also isn't listed there. Removing an exception from there doesn't have an effect for ABP.

I confirm that no webRequest.onBeforeRequest events are fired and no content scripts are injected in Opera on FWIW, Chrome is well known to do the same on But Opera protecting Bing (and potentially other websites) from extensions is certainly interesting. But (if my analysis is correct) there is nothing we can do (other than reaching out to Opera).
