Changing adress bar size to show more extensions buttons.

  • Hello !

    In windowed mode, Opera doesn't show all of my installed extensions,
    while the address bar takes up a huge amount of space.

    Would anyone know a way to shorten that address bar's width ?

    Thanks

  • The number of extension icons depends on the screen size.

    Would anyone know a way to shorten that address bar's width ?

    It's not possible.

  • Thanks leocg for your answer !

    Too bad it is not possible, I would have thought lots of people may use more extensions than me (15) and experience similar usage misfit...

    In fullscreen the adress bar is twice as large as the space used by extensions icons, all showing, but as soon as windowed, the 2/3 ratio stays the same but many extensions get hidden in profit of useless address bar space.

    So...

    1 - Any easy way to show the hidden icons ? (a dropdown list would be fine)
    2 - Have I overlooked an easy way to access the hidden extension buttons ?
    3 - Really no hidden setting that could be tweaked for bar width/ratio ?
    4 - Where should I submit that bug/feature ?

    Cheers !

  • 4 - Where should I submit that bug/feature ?

    It's not a bug. You can suggest a change or a new feature in the Suggestion Box, there should be something already there.

  • Btw, note that not all extensions will add an icon i the right of the address bar.

  • It's not a bug

    Well thanks for the clarification, let's say it has been bugging me then 🙂

    Suggestion box does have an interesting post on that subject
