For me, in Opera 12, the connection to startpage.com is judged to be "insecure" because its security certificate is issued for: ***.**startpage.com. If I go to **www.**startpage.com the connection becomes "secure" again. If I reload a GET search query, with the longer domain, the connection is also secure.
Thanks, it's a good workaround.
Though it would be nice to know if without www the connection is really unsecure, or it is secure, only Opera says it isn't.
no cycling through latest visited tabs using Ctrl-Tab/Shift-Ctrl-Tab
Type "opera:flags" in the URL field to enable this experimental setting for tab cycling in last used order.

Leave out all the whining such: “What on earth has the development management been thinking of, REMOVING all of those great features?”
Had you done some reading first, you would know that they haven't removed them. They were never there from the start of Opera 15. They are slowly adding back essential features. The much maligned tab-stacking feature is not essential, but I find it useful.
I will recommend hide those features, why remove it ?
Well, strictly speaking, those features have not been removed. The question should be, “Why not implement them again in Opera Next?” The answer is, “Because Opera Next is being redesigned to be simpler, easier to use, and easier to maintain. The more (unnecessary) features are added, the more complicated it gets, and then it becomes just a Geek's browser again.”
Some features should be implemented. If they are not, I for one will never upgrade, and I am sure that goes for many other long-term users.
For me Opium dynamically changes priority to Normal (8) for the foreground tab, and Below Normal (6) to background tabs. Video does stutter occasionally on the configuration where Opera 12 works well.
I'm not sure how this can be resolved because in the previous situation pages overloaded with Flash could hang a PC. Perhaps like with all normal software that deals with multimedia playback, a process/thread priority setting could be added. Do not be afraid of a Preferences dialog. The browser is not exactly a media player. But if you try to combine the functionality of one into it, a large options dialog seems unavoidable, for use cases, where the browser is mainly used for semi-realtime media playback, or browsing.
I tried some fiddling around but I don't see why my opera 18 is having trouble reading opera 12 profile ?
the folder for opera 18 is in appdata/roaming/opera software
and for opera12 it is appdata/roaming/opera
and both are 32 bit.
so I still don't get it that why is opera 18 not reading through the old profile.
and where is that one single bookmark of bing.com coming from ?
I think if I can find the location of that bing bookmark I may find the source of trouble.
Nice rant but pretty much pointless. The new Opera IS now the official browser and that is the long and short of it. It is far more compatible with popular sites around the internet and it is getting better all the time as more features are added. I'm not going to go into the reasons given for abandoning the Presto version but you can do that with a little searching. We've been fielding these same questions for months now and in truth - it's gets a little old and becomes a little tiresome when the same questions are posed almost on a daily basis week after week. A little searching on your part would provide answers to the questions you're now posing.
Bottom line? I like the new Opera. I believe Opera is headed in the right direction and I look forward to the new features that will undoubtedly be added to the browser. Yes, I could use Chrome if I wanted but I try and use as little of Google's products as possible. I find their attitude about privacy rather cavalier at best. Firefox is an option but currently has a font-related bug for those on Windows 8.1 and frankly, I don't find it more compelling than Opera v.18. Many of the features of the older Opera suite were features I did not use so I do not feel the "loss" you and others talk about. Not sure what else to tell you. If the new Opera isn't doing it for you, keep v.12.16 and run the two side by side until Opera Next has the features you require. Your only other option is to find another browser. Good luck.
"My point here was that this problem did not constitute a "show stopper" for most users."
You think it's ok people can type into a form, hit a button by mistake, then be sent off to another page - oops - so they go back and OH LOOK all their typing is gone.
You don't think this is a problem? Really? Ok lemme change the question from "have you ever actually worked on the web?" to "Have you actually used the Internet?"
You're not sure "millions of people" have this problem. Not sure. And offer no proof.
And that, spud, *is* "most people.
Most people really don't like when you delete what they spent time typing it. No, really. It's true. Because you see they have to type it again now and it's never going to get the same amount of effort put into and and congratulations a browser bug just contributed to a lessor output from humanity.
It's a bug, not a feature. No kidding.
You don't know what you're talking about. Literally.
Definitely i can. But it seems not from password manager. Perhaps, files "Login Data" and\or "Login Data-journal" from AppData, except i need to find out file structure and how password was encoded )))
UPD. Solved: file "Login Data", format SQL Lite 3, passwords are in text (unencoded)
UPD2. Looked at wrong col ))) Password value field type text/numeric but can't figure out how to extract it in readable form
