When you install Opera Blink for the first time you should see a dialog asking if want to import some of your Opera Presto data.
If it not happens, just start Opera Blink once with the parameters --presto-small-prefs-dir=ROAMING_PROFILE_DIR' and your bookmarks, passwords and SD should be imported.
Thanks for the reply. Opera version is what it says.
Control panel states Intel Celeron cpu 900 @ 2.2GHz. What's the diff between processor and core processor?
Looking at device manager, I don't see anything that says graphics card.
i do have "Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family" but not sure if that's what you want to see.
In this case I would download iobit uninstaller http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/iobit_uninstaller.html
Run it and uninstall Opera run the powerful scan after to delete any leftovers, then reinstall Opera from scratch. Make sure to back up your bookmarks and whatever else you want to save.
Otherwise just try renaming this file operaprefs.ini, usually in your profile folder, to operaprefs.ini.back with Opera closed. Then open it. It will act like a new install. Again backup before doing anything and this second method only works with Opera 12.xx or earlier. I don't think it will work with the newer versions.
Just a few things I would try.
:idea: If you put your OS and other details in your forum signature, it saves us asking, and saves you repeating yourself.
It also helps a lot to provide an active link when reporting site problems, to make sure we're checking the same page.

You might have more success if you follow the forum rules by starting your own thread with a descriptive title rather than asking questions in a random troll thread like this one.
Enable it in "opera:flags" first, restart Opera, then enable it in settings. The feature is not complete yet, so it's not enabled by default. Closing a tab still cycles to the previous tab on the tab bar, but Ctrl Tab and Ctrl Shift Tab work OK. They are working on improvements to tab-handling.
No loading images in Opera 18 Final, but if I clear cache, it worked.
The issue was in Opera 17 as well. I wanted to fix it in Opera 18.
Well, whenever the images don't load, should I clear my cache and reopen Opera? :down:

Opera 18 uses the same bookmark files ("Bookmarks" and "Favicons" and "Favicons-journal") as Google Chrome and other Chromium browsers. You can always copy these bookmark files from one browser to another, say from Chrome's user profile folder to Opera 18's user profile folder. You can also use many Chrome extensions, including Chrome bookmark extensions, in Opera 18. On the other hand, the Opera bookmarks extension is not recommended. It was designed for an earlier version of Opera Blink, which had no bookmarks, and does not use the same bookmark files used by Opera 18 and Chrome.
Bookmark and other Chrome extensions are available for download from the Chrome Web Store. Prior to visiting the Chrome Web Store, you should install the Download Chrome Extensions extension from Opera add-ons.
@rilef thanks for the tip. do you recommend any specific bookmarks extension?
I just had what sounds like the exact same problem with Opera 12.15, but I found a workaround. Flash worked the last time I tried it and then today it didn't work and I was getting messages that I needed to install flash, even after I just did several re-installs. But I fixed the problem by going to a recent file backup of Opera and identifying any different files (I used BeyondCompare file comparison program), and I found some files in the 'defaults' folder (C:\Program Files\Opera\defaults) and also a couple of files in the 'profile' folder I think, I forget, but it was only about 6 files altogether that were different between the existing Opera and the very recent backup. Since I knew that Opera hadn't changed much, if at all, I copied the old files back into the Opera folders, and Presto! Problem solved. Flash is now working. So I don't know exactly what caused the problem, but at least I was able to overcome it. The only thing I can think of that might have caused the problem is a Windows XP Update that I ran last night, but that doesn't sound very likely.

I just "upgraded" to Opera 18 and like Opera 17, the Key that would insert userID and password in older versions of Opera is conspicuous by its absence. Control+enter doesn't do anything helpful. What good does it do to save/manage passwords if they won't fill???
Something seems to be wrong with your settings. When you go to a (login) page, Opera automatically fills the username and password fields if the data is already known.
Maybe you have disabled autofill?
Ok, using the info in this post
helped a lot, the only issue was that i don't have a /profile folder so i had to locate my roaming folder
So for me the below command worked
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera Next\launcher.exe" --presto-small-prefs-dir="C:\Users\noodlesoup\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera64"

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.
