How to remove recommendations tab?

  • think it must have been a mistake to send it to me. Is there some way to undo the A/B update?

  • think it must have been a mistake to send it to me

    Not necessarily, there must be criteria for the a/b test builds.

    Is there some way to undo the A/B update?

    Try renaming Opera's profile folder.

  • how do I do that?

    I found my preferences file which hasn't been accessed since August 17th 17.07pm presumably that's when the Opera update was unable to read it.

  • how do I do that?

    Go to that folder using Windows Explorer or similar program and rename the folder's name. You can check the path in OMenu > About Opera.

  • I found about Opera but not OMenu. I'm using 31.0.1889.174. Would there be any useful information on this page?

    If I deleted and re-installed Opera might it be cured? and would I be able to retrieve my bookmarks or would they be lost?

    thanks

    Sally

  • I found about Opera but not OMenu.

    It's the menu that contains about opera, so you found it.

    If I deleted and re-installed Opera might it be cured?

    Rename the profile folder so you will can check it.

  • thank you -- you are being very patient with me.

    I found the profile folder and opened it. I found the preferences file. I could not see how to re-name them.

    Are you thinking that I will rename it and then have two copies, one the original and one my renamed copy which I can then check?

  • I could not see how to re-name them.

    Right click on "Opera Stable", there should be a rename entry in the menu. Click on it and rename the folder to "Opera Stable Old" or something like that.

    Are you thinking that I will rename it and then have two copies, one the original and one my renamed copy which I can then check?

    Yep, this is the idea. If the prtoblem is solved then there is/was an issue with your old profile; if not then you can just bring back your data by renaming back the old profile.

  • I'm sorry, it doesn't offer rename. It's the "Search, search with, copy and print" on the right click

    You are on Windows Explorer, right?

  • Just one simple question: how to disable this "Recommended" tab:

    ?
    Every time i click on address field it drops down, so annoying!
    I am on latest Opera [31.0.1889.207]

  • The folder seems to be marked as requiring Administrator access.

  • Got it! On the main page (http://www.opera.com/) DO NOT click on "Download now" button, otherwise youll get the [31.0.1889.207], wich is not ok!
    Instead, scroll down and click on "Opera for computers" and then click on the link "Prefer to install Opera later? Download the offline package." That version of Opera [31.0.1889.174] doesnt have those annoying site tiles (disabled by default)

    Hi, no, I am not, sarky one. I am on Opera. And it's not working. I have been on Opera four probably 10 years and it has never malfunctioned before.

    Is there an expert administrator thread or do I just have to delete and re-install -- and if I do this will I lose all my bookmarks.

    Perhaps i will shift to Firefox and then shift back -- firefox will pick up my Opera book marks and then when I re-install Opera it will pick up the firefox bookmarks.

    That should so it?

  • And the answer to that is no it doesn't do it. Firefox picks up bookmarks in Explorer but not Opera. Since I am using Opera it doesn't pick up my bookmarks.

  • You are on Windows Explorer, right?

    Windows Explorer has absolutely nothing to do with any internet browser!
    According to such proposals, there is no one to help us, except for users themselves...

  • Hi, no, I am not, sarky one

    Please start reading from here

    Please read this topic again.

    My bad I'm sorry. I can't do it anyway but I am now in Explorer.

    It's just not worth the effort or your time. A computer is a tool for me. I will either put up with it or switch, don't think about it any more.

  • This took me a while too, but now I have it removed....

    1. go to opera://flags/
    2. type this [Extended Suggestions] in experiments search textbox.
    3. select disabled...
