Turning off the address popup? How to do this in Opera for Linux. Wheneeve I hover over a link with my cursor, about a second passes and the complete address appears in a popup that obscures the information on the screen below it. I find this very disconcerting and want to turn it off. Does anyone know how to do this? I have used Opera for Linux on my desktop and that did not happen, so it seems that some setting is different, but I could locate it.
You are actually hijacking this topic, as your question/problem has nothing to do with this topics subject, other than the fact that Linux is mentioned. You should really have posted your own topic.
But seeing as you are already here, go to 'O Menu / Settings / Preferences... / Advanced / Browsing' and remove the tick from 'Show tooltips' on the right had side and click 'Ok'.
Things should be back to normal when hovering links with your mouse pointer now.
Yeah, I hadn't glanced back to see which forum I was in. I use both Windows and Linux.
Opera/Blink uses an actual database which is somewhat more resilient, Presto just kept data in flat files. If you logged out or crashed while Presto was writing one of its files, you could lose the whole thing. Mind you, it was nice to be able to read most files in a text editor - can't do that now.
It appears that I made the right choice & the version that appears on the Download page is incorrect for my computer. Any other Linux-Opera users with 32-bit computers should beware that if this the only version that's displayed on the Download page: "Opera 12.16 for Linux x86-64", it's for 64-bit machines. I'm going to submit this as a bug report next. Regards!
I've been an Opera user for many, maybe 10 years or more. Now I decided to try Evernote and in Opera 12.16 it is not possible to run a web client of Evernote. Web Evernote window is blank. Even a plugin for Evernote Web Clipper says that it needs at least Opera version 16. So I decided to switch to Firefox.
I exported Opera bookmarks with folders of bookmarks into html format and an import to Firefox was flawless.
