Latest Opera Developer release killed Opera for me

    the other day I downloaded the latest update for opera developer and it seriously wrecked the application for me. I can't even start it - it starts to initialize and then shuts down within a second. I'm no developer - I use the app for the VPN feature and honestly I've had few problems with it. It's my fav browser. I'm running a 4 year old macbook air with OS version 10.9.5. Can I revert back to the previous version?

    You can download the previous version (45) of Opera developer for Mac here.

    However the auto-update will probably update it to current version.

    I guess the best solution for you would just install and use the stable version.

      Same issue appears to be affecting me for Beta and Dev, OS X 10.9.5. Updated Beta, won't start after closing it. Downloaded Developer, it also fails to start. Back to stable for the time being as I don't require the VPN.

      Stable versions should have VPN. At least the Windows ones have.

        So it does. The stable version that would run on my old Vista box didn't so I just jumped in with Beta on all my machines and never looked back.

        It's just that Opera for XP / Vista doesn't have some options like VPN but current Operating Systems have those options.

        Are Opera Beta allowed in Vista with full features?

        Probably an old version is being used.

          Opera Beta seems to work okay, but I didn't think it came with the VPN. Cool. Now how do I transfer all my bookmarks from the developer app to the beta one? Is there a folder I can just swap over in the library?

          The latest one? That would be weird.

          Now how do I transfer all my bookmarks from the developer app to the beta one?

          Just copy the Bookmarks file from one profile folder to another. Or use Sync.

            Where does opera store it's bookmarks? The file name? Is it a specific plist file?

            The one i wrote in my previous post.

            To find where that file is located, see Menu > About Opera.

              Thanks! It's weird when you search for opera in spotlight and nothing comes up; no folders, nothing. usually when you search for an application you find a folder and all it's subfolders right there, easy peasy.
