Opera 20 still not showing complete URL in address bar

  • It is annoying that there is no option to show the full URI in the Adress bar.

    The scheme and the query string gets cut off - you can only see it if you click in the bar

    Whats the use in having a huge address bar which goes across your 27" monitor when you cut it down like that? 🙂

    In Opera 12.x you can right click on the icon before the bar and choose wether you want to see the complete address or not.

    That is one important feature, hindering me to use the new opera in production, since those informations are vital for me

  • Opera 21 has an option to show full url.

  • Fancy - then i just need a simple ad-block-extension and opera is barely back on the road an i'll give it a shot

  • This makes me very sad. I have been considering a switch to Opera because I am sick and tired of Mozilla making random, unhelpful changes to Firefox and not listening to the community. Firefox decided to hide the "http" in an address, so we had to go in and manually turn that back on. Then they decided nobody would REALLY want to turn of javascript on a page, so they removed that option from the Options page; you have to search the about:config just to turn off javascript. Now they're doing a radical redesign of their UI so that basically if I want firefox, I'll be forced to use a mobile browser on my desktop (big, touch-friendly button menu instead of sensible, mouse-friendly menu that actually has useful options.) I thought Opera, as one of the smaller players, would be a bit more sensible about things. Now I find out a feature I consider one of the most basic and vital to a browser (an address bar) was working in version 12, but has been deliberately broken ever since and will only be fixed in version 21. You're really not making me feel good about this switch.
