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,
You can change the background in 18 by installing a theme. Layout was an option in 12.xx - back when speed dial didn't support folders - but has not been reimplemented as of 18. (There is a setting in the latest test version, Opera 19 Developer, but that is still considered unstable.)
The info you found was apparently for Opera 12 or earlier, which Pesala's screenshot was from.

Let's say that over the years I have read quite a few answers by Pesala and they were often useful. But this time I am on the side of Saiyin. He brought up a lot of interesting points regarding the lack of a bookmark feature and the findings of Opera surveys. He made a innocent remark not intended at anyone, no explanations were given. Instead of getting a reply he got a lecture.
Saiyan did not ask an innocent question. He started this thread with a rant about all he thought was wrong with the new Opera and its lack of a bookmarks manager, with a personal attack thrown in for good measure. I am not defending the New Opera, I am well aware of its failings, and will continue using 11.64 until it is a better choice for me, but people need to get real here. It is a new product, and many planned features are not included yet. Others are not planned (integrated email, notes, etc.) — it will never be the same as Opera 12.x again. It is not a Chrome clone, and it won't be a clone of the old Opera either.
Saiyan brought up nothing of interest, just a lot of points that have been made repeatedly by others since Opera 15 was released. He apparently failed to read any of the previous replies on the forums and blogs. In my reply, I explained how to manage bookmarks on the QAB or use Opera Link, and further that a bookmark manager was being worked on.
Now you join the fray shouting “WE DO WANT BOOKMARKS BACK” when you have already been told that they're working on it. How about doing some reading before giving me a lecture? The reasons why the email client is no longer integrated have also already been given many times. The mail client is no worse for being separated, it still has the same excellent features with fast search, and database filtering. The only loss is that it has been made rather less convenient to access from the browser. Customisable shortcuts could easily fix that. One minor improvement is that users can now check their mail without starting their browser — not something that I would use, but nevertheless an improvement for some.
There is an answer... Download Opera 19 Developer then under the 'More tools' drop down menu synchronize your previous bookmarks bar into Opera. It takes a while, but it's worth it.
One annoying fault that you will notice is that your bookmark icons will disappear. to fix this, left click on the folders within the newly created bookmarks bar and click on Open All. Again it takes a while, but once done, KERRCHING Opera is back to the great browser it used to be in Opera 12.
I will never understand the reasoning behind Opera's decision to scrap bookmarks. Speed Dial is farcical when you have more than say 20 bookmarks!
