Thanks for replies! I too had been sticking with Op 12 but it's just not compatible with some newer sites...or it works jerky; so I tried the ultimate, the one, the only CHROME - the slowest browser I've ever tried, it could be because of many apps I installed but with so many common-sense features missing, I simply couldn't browse without those apps. Then I came back to Op 12...then I got to experience (again) the incompatibility of Op12 with the newer generation sites. THEN...intelligence struck me...the new version of Op is based on Chromium, so Chrome apps HAVE to work on Op...I was right, I'm a genius:lol:
This YTB issue appears to be the final issue, which has been solved now (it appears so). One thing I don't get...since Chrome and Op are both based on Chromium, why is Op so much faster than Chrome?
@sgunhouse: On that page, it says that "The default player is currently used." I can't opt out, never mind though.

What i don't understand is that why does everyone act like it's Presto or Opera ASA's fault for the incompatibility. From what i gather Presto was the closest to following standards and everyone else was busy developing for Webkit and Gecko and stop following standards and thus couldn't work well with Presto. In my honest opinion Opera ASA should have just kept Presto and work on patches for all those dumb ass developers who don't understand how to follow standards. People are saying Opera switched to WebKit for compatibility and so that they don't need to spend a whole lot of time developing an engine, which I don't understand. Most browser makers now are trying to be like Chrome and adopt a rapid development Cycle which I don't understand because it's not like their user base were complaining that they didn't get an update this week, last week, or the week before in honestly I think they were all just envious and wanted to be like Chrome and say they were constantly working on their browser which is stupid because you can't scale to a company like Google which probably has it's own department for Chrome development. So if we as the user base weren't complaining and were fine with having the good stable version of Opera and waiting until the next version was released. I think this whole being envious thing was gotten to far because I understand the point of Opera Next but really I never understood the whole Opera Developer Stream and although I can see it's use scenario it' still redundant and pointless

As you mention, it can be used to recover bookmarks by simply opening the LP vault and navigating to each of your password-protected sites then dragging and dropping them onto your QAB or into the folders that you've created with your QAB.
Thank you for your reply.
Please try the XMarks for your bookmarks. Very useful and a must for serious bookmarkers!
After an half-day config duration for Opera 18, I understand I cannot tame it.
Now, I am so happy with Chrome ver. 31.xxx. Unfortunately, I have uninstalled the Opera 18, and configured the Chrome in 25 mins!
I am really sad to leave this browser once I have used with liking...

And there is no supposed-to-be file named "Profile" AFAIK. Similarly, the Opera 12 user profile folder is named whatever and located wherever your Opera 12 installation says its named and located.
I still run Opera 12 and there is indeed a Profile folder there -- and always has been. Copying that file to the next update kept all my bookmarks, skins, themes, etc., consistent throughout multiple updates.
Opera does say what I posted : Profile: C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Next but there is no Profile folder in there.
Obviously, Opera has changed how things work.

In Opera 18 you can enable off-road mode. In Opera 12.16 it's called Turbo mode.
In Opera 18, Settings, uncheck "Preload Discovery content" and do not open the Discover tab.
In future, please start a new thread. This has nothing to do with disabling Autoupdate.
Opera 18 uses the Blink engine (same as Chrome/Chromium) but with a custom UI. They haven't really given us status reports, but as Chromium for Linux already exists presumably it's the UI that still needs work.
Looking through RFC 6265, I see no reason why these cookies should be omitted.
Though section "5.1.3. Domain Matching" mentions the following should hold:
The string is a host name (i.e., not an IP address).
".ing.nl" is -strictly- NOT a hostname. However the intention seems pretty clear from the RFC. Maybe Opera is to strict in that respect?

That's exactly how you send private messages here these days. Until March. Then it'll be all over.
I'm here to actually ask about the same problem. Currently I'm using version 12 and I decided to try the new Opera 18.
With grinding teeth I decided to settle with the missing bookmarks and was about to start using it anyway, but then I found out that the ctrl + (1-9) aren't working.
Is there any plugin or any solution to this? I mean... there is plenty of other shortcuts and I don't see any reason why this one shouldn't work.
Thanks in advance,
