Disable suggestions in adressbar/Disable Dropdownmenu adressbar

  • is there any way to deactivate the feature, that while I type into the adressbar, opera drops down a list with suggestions from from my history and especially fromm my bookmarks? I do not want everybody who just browses at my computer to see immediately which are my favourite sides. In earlier versions there were possibilities via opera:config or opera://flags settings but as far as I can see, these options are not available anymore. I would also download an add one, if necessary

    Or is there at least a possibility to have hidden folders in the bookmarks?

  • You can set Opera to use a different profile, which will keep things like bookmarks and browser history separate but thats a fairly technical task. I would just create another user account in Windows if you have multiple people using the computer. Thats really what user accounts are for and doing anything else is just a kludge.

  • Thanks for your answer and suggestions. But that wont work for me. It is supposed to be for situations when just somebody switches seats with me for a few minutes or stands behind me and watches how i am typing URLs for some reason.

  • Does anybody have a solution for this problem yet?
    I really can't believe that opera is ignoring privacy issues like that and don't let user configure their browsers anymore.

    Use private windows and don't let people to stay near your computer. You can also logout from the computer when you need to leave even for a while.
