WHERE is the option for choosing a folder for the bookmark now??

  • Here is the screenshot:

    https://cloud.mail.ru/public/BcYD/7Q5efptYY

    Before the new upgrade (which was without any notification as usual) I clicked on the heart button and then in the pop-up I was choosing a folder for the bookmark. So I could instantly place a new bookmark on my speed dial. Now that option is gone! After bookmarking, I have to open the bookmarks and manually move the new bookmark to my speed dial.

    How do I fix this now?
    Using Opera Developer 34.0.2011.0 under Windows 7 64-bit

  • Please read the known issues lista in the desktop team blog post about latest developer 34 build.

    This?

    I've read it. There's no problem similar to mine described there. Even if there was - I was asking "How to fix this?", not where I can read a report (my post is a report too, thx)

    Thanks, atleast you did the labor of giving me the right link.
    Still, any thoughts on how to avoid this bug? Can I somehow downgrade my opera? ANd how can I turn off the upgrades?

  • atleast you did the labor of giving me the right link

    Well, people using a developer builds know about the Desktop Team blog and the releases. Or, at least, they should.

    Still, any thoughts on how to avoid this bug?

    Don't add bookmarks. :-)

    Serious now, there is no way to avoid it afaik.

    Can I somehow downgrade my opera?

    Download an old version and try to install it. However you need to disable autoupdate or you will get the newest build anyway.

    ANd how can I turn off the upgrades?

    You can block the updater on the firewall. Or you can rename it. Or you can remove the autoupdate task.

    1. No, people don't own anything to anyone, if they are using opera developer. As for me, I started using Developer version when opera destroyed the new experimental speed dial, and there was no other way to turn it back on other than to use the Developer version (this happened on some of the 2x version, v.28 I think)

    2. Haha, "don't add bookmarks", you're killing me with your hilarious jokes. I think that's the main problem of new Opera - total disrespect to its users.

    3. I hope you realize, that messing around with firewalls is total bullcrap, and it shouldn't be so hard to just turn off the damn updates. Because, not only I use opera, but my friends and family, and opera's attitude toward its users causes a big mess in their everyday life, when a such important instrument of daily life and work as a browser stops working right. And I don't understand, why is it so hard to make a checkbox in the browser options that turns off the updates. Instead, users must have a giant hemorroidal headache with firewalls (which often require administrator rights in order to change their settings).

    I constantly monitor the browser market, looking for a decent alternative of opera (vivaldi may be, but it's pretty raw at the moment), and once the alternative is found, be sure that users will massively migrate to it, forgetting opera like a nightmare.

    1. No, people don't own anything to anyone, if they are using opera developer.

    If someone is using an alpha version of a software (and developer builds are alpha versions of Opera) then s/he should, at least, knows what they are doing and the consequences of it. And also where and how to find info about new releases and its issues.

    1. Haha, "don't add bookmarks", you're killing me with your hilarious jokes.

    Good to know that you realized that it was a joke i did (or tried to).

    For now you will need to move the bookmark to the folder you want.

    I hope you realize, that messing around with firewalls is total bullcrap, and it shouldn't be so hard to just turn off the damn updates.

    Blocking the autoupdater using the firewall is only one of the options, you can use the others.

    And I don't understand, why is it so hard to make a checkbox in the browser options that turns off the updates.

    It's probably not that hard but they don't seem to want to do it.

    One reason i can think for it is: users will block the updates and forget about it. Then they will start to have issues because of new things being added to the web sites and will start reporting those issues already solved on a recent version of Opera. And dealing with those reports cost time and money for Opera.

    Imho ("forced") autoupdates will be the default in the future. Even Windows is going this way.
