Just as an update Opera is again showing the description in ebay as is firefox and epic
No idea why just started working tonight when I checked. Didn't do any thing it just worked when I started the computer to night. It was not working last night. Don't think it was the reboot as I tried that a few times without success
No problem. In that case, I'll add this.
My fresh install was the 64 bit version instead of the 32 bit version I had been using. I installed the 64 bit into the default 64 bit install folders, so it would not overwrite my 32 bit version. That way I could compare my settings between the two of them to help me set up the buttons and skins the way I like. Then I copied files that handle bookmarks, wands, and speed dial directly from the 32 bit to the 64 bit. I'd post the file names, but because I'm not sure I did it exactly right, I'll leave that out. All I can say is after some fumbling around, it worked.
We're all different, dreamybetty, with different requirements that we place upon our browser of choice. I'm one of those born in the first half of the 20th century and would agree that making many adjustments is a very high hurdle to surmount. It's one of the reasons I've found workarounds and simpler ways of doing things. Then again, my demands of the software are in all probability not as high as your own and I don't require tabs to work in just such a manner. I will also add that I'm sometimes amazed at the inability of many young people to adapt their ways of doing things. One would have thought they more than those our age would be able to "roll with the punches" but in truth, at times they seem far less able to adapt than we.
Opera does not have any extension sync feature and also is not connected to your gmail account, although you can use it in Sync.
Most probably your old profile folder was still there and the new install reused it.
"Stop whining and ask specific questions. Educate yourself by using the search function. You can't configure the Speed Dial. Then search to find out how. You post that EVERYONE says Opera is just a Chrome copy. Uh... no... not everyone; just those who don't know any better... the uninformed crowd.... the whiners."
just fall of a tall horse- would ya?
I shall expand on OP's post:
there are no more option or way to re'enable bookmarks (main) toolbar for the top of the page
There are no FUNCTIONAL extensions to make it look so or even basic bookmark manager build inn- As ie manage bookmarks, bookmark page , search bookmarks
Reason, why I am responding- with identical to majority forsed to change users ... I kinda doubled up in my task here
... I'm looking for a relatively safe browser for win 2000. ...
The lock symbol will only appear if you are using a secure https connection to search with. That is not a problem with Opera but your choice of search engine. You need to find a secure search engine or one that offers the option to log-in or set security options.
are two such search engines.
