I UP this too!
It's very useful on the speed dial, easy and quick access to various features, but I don't want it on while browsing, not much of a use.
Please bring back the option to only show it on speed dial!!!
To be able to clone a pinned tab as an unpinned tab I would also appreciate.
For example, if I have discovered a product I want to buy, I pin the corresponding tab first, then I clone it to search the vendor's web pages for further interesting offers, using the cloned tab as a starting point which does not need to be pinned.
It is helpful that Opera makes it possible to close pinned tabs without first unpinning them, though.
Although shortcuts (Ctrl+W) works when pop-up is appeared, but other keys does not work. I can't use the space button to scroll down the page, or use other keys in case when a site allows you to interact with it via A,S,D,W and other keys.
@burnout426 Not the desired answer sorry. The search engine shouldn't be locked like that at all. Instead it should default to user chosen default.
I don't want Google. I want to use the search engine i have chosen, be it Bing, Duckduckgo, Ecosia, or Searx etc
