Problem with extension buttons in the toolbar

  • I have two problems with extension buttons:

    a) I don't see any way to reorder them. This is a very basic feature, and it exists in Chromium, so why isn't it here???

    b) After a certain time when I added new extensions they stoped showing up in the toolbar. Digging around revealed that extensions themselves were fine, Opera simply doesn't show them because the space on the toolbar is fixed and there doesn't seem to be any way to increase it... why??????? I can't use around a third of extensions since they only work from the button which is not being shown.

    So, basically, how do I reorder extension buttons, and how do I show the ones that are enabled, but hidden due to not enough space on toolbar?

  • a) You can't.

    b) In Opera developer 36 there is an experimental extension toolbar expander that allows you to have more extension icons.

  • Is there a reason why Opera devs removed extension toolbar button reordering from Chromium? Was that officially stated somewhere?

    I see this is not a recent thing, people have been asking for it to be added back for years now.

  • Sadly I can't use dev builds since I am on portable version, any other solutions?

  • Opera only shares a renderer with Chromium, not its interface.

    Opera has its own UI.

    Was that officially stated somewhere?

    Why should have one?

    You can do a standalone/portable instal of any Opera stream.
