disable google search bar, when site is not found

  • Hello devs!

    I'd like to remove this search bar, when a website is not found(I just hate Google, and all that things). And, if there's a way to do this, I want to remove all that Google crap from my browser.

    I have Opera 32.0.1899.0 - developer.

  • And I want to remove this one too from Speed Dial: http://i.imgur.com/vYCaJeJ.png
    and the other search bar from right corner: http://i.imgur.com/Ikl3y7y.png

  • Many users have requested this, and even if I'm a Google user, I agree that it's not reasonable to have a Google bar if you're for example a yahoo user.

  • Can't help with the "site not found" page but the speed dial is easy (if you know the trick). Keyword is 'superuser mode'. And don't worry: it won't retain, you need to re-activate it every time to access these specific features.

    • Enter your settings (alt-p)
    • Now use: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a. So cursor keys and then the letters 'b' and 'a'.
    • Confirm your choice and also remove the 'b' from the search box to see all options.
    • Either scroll down or enter 'box' in the search bar to show the option ("Hide the search box in Speed Dial").
    • Enable it and you're done.

    Although it might look like a burden having to re-enable this every time do keep in mind that these options are not commonly used. You'll soon see what I mean by that.

    Hope this helps.

  • "Hide the search box in Speed Dial" it's hiding just the big search bar in the center, not what I've asked. Check the picture again.

    And I don't know, why Opera want to me to use Google. This browser is good, but lacks customization. I'm already using superuser mode, but things like what I want to see in my Speed Dial page, cannot be modified(except Google search bar, and theme).

    These options shouldn't be added to developer edition?(Or maybe add to opera://flags)

    One more thing: an UI scaling option shouln't be bad, because imho it looks "fat".

    Unless you check "Always show power user settings" 😉

  • You can of course change the default search engine, though that has no effect on the error page ...
