Hello folks !
Even "Check for update" is quite redundant to this screen as Opera is automatically configured to check for latest updates when this option/window is accessed from the main menu.
Therefore, this "Check for update" is of no use in practical sense.
Else, how can we disable the auto-check for updates for this window?
Inputs are being awaited...
This may be an old topic, but as nothing has been done to explain or resolve the problem, perhaps it's time somone from the Opera development team actually looked at it?
I can see no logical reason to force a side bar on the start page (or any page). It's been a year, and despite many people looking for this option, nothing at all has been done about it. Poor responses, like 'you can disable it' doesn't really help. You can't disable it. If I could I would. You can, 'un-pin' it, but it's still there on startup. Opera is going the completely wrong way with it's loyal users here. We raise an issue, a response of 'you can't' doesn't really make sense. Who are you making this browser for? Yourselves or everyone? I thought Opera operated in a 'better way' than other browsers, I liked the smaller development team, and the fact it's a great browser. What is being done to it at the moment is nothing short of graffiti, and not everyone loves it. I think we are at least owed an explanation of the logic behind 'forcing' a side bar on the user base. It's not a little issue, it's a biggie. Not everyone has the luxury of 'spare' screen space for this kind of thing. An option to remove it should be incredibly simple to implement, so there must be another reason to force it on us all? I guess it could be a case of 'make them have it, then they'll start using it', well trust me in that is not the case for many users of Opera. Trust me, generally people react badly to being forced to use things. Note how popular Microsoft is at the moment? Is that what the Opera development team are about now? It would be a shame if Opera got swept up in the 'abuse the user base for profit' class of developers. If that's the case, fine, thanks for the previous browsers and I'll go else where. If that is not the case, then please, Opera, explain your actions.
Just got a new laptop so had to install Opera. I was very
pleased with sync and how it brought everything over to
my new install. Copying and pasting my speeddial was a
Extensions. Damn that was a bit of work. First I had to keep
looking at my desktop to see in which order they were in
so I could get them the same. Then a couple of them I
had to search where I got them from (Opera or Chrome
It wasn't a killer, but it was a little bit of a hassle.
@nebulousecho this has been requested for quite some time now...
either one can add ecosia as search engine or (what i do), i just use this opera addon which allows me to set whichever website i want as default when opening a new tab.
I know it's not ideal, but currently there's not many other options.
@dexter-x73 I give up.
Either you don't understand what @rudrick and me were saying or you don't want to understand.
I have nothing further to say. It seems you don't want the help.
Apologies to have you bothered with help you didn't want.
Good luck with everything.
Really only needs extension button to the toolbar. With options what bookmarks to show (folders). I'd have only Bookmarks Bar folder - so we'd had vertical bookmarks bar (also in options to set size of the container). The oooolllllldddd horizontal bar is a #hasbeen.
Hmm, actually, FF is resolving some issues in relation as we speak (so that another set of extensions not needed for splitted / paneled side). Vivaldi sorted those long ago (structurally O and V differ).
If Opera doesn't want to combine the bars then make the old bar "modern" too. Place it on the right side? With auto-hover onn/off? Or hover in and out from Reborn sidebar? All I know that the ads are there~ but perhaps a merge is possible.
Qwant is now the default search engine for Brave browser in France and Germany. Can we finally get an option to set is as default in Opera? It's a great search engine that respects our privacy and if I can't use it in Opera, I'll be forced to switch to Brave (and I really don't want that, I love Opera).
