I want to remove Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, Amazon, Bing and Wikipedia ?

  • The solution worked for me, too.
    But with version 36.0.2130.65 it does not work anymore.

    Can someone confirm that ?

  • IIRC you have to do it every time you update the browser.

  • Yes, of course i have to do it after every update.
    But with the latest version it does not work.
    I only get an error message that some files are corrupted and i should do a fresh installation.
    After copying the original default_partner_content.json file back everything works fine.

  • AFAIK it doesn't (or shouldn't) work since a while ago as Opera now verifies the file and do not run if it was modified.

  • Are the devs actively trying to piss the users off? I just want to use "y" for my youtube search engine. Not fucking yahoo.

    Feeling a bit entitled are we? You can always demand your money back...

  • Just a long time opera user that still remembers the good days. But you won't understand that.

  • Yes, its not like this board is full of 'long time users' with single digit posts counts that come her to cry about the free product not doing every little thing that they want. We would never understand that.

    You don't know me any more than I know you. What I do know is that I was running micro-computers in the earliest days when they were programmed via machine code using front-panel toggle switches; I've lived through the earliest ARPAnet days and the onset of the Internet, Mosaic browsers, IE, Netscape, and all the others including some of the earliest Opera versions. One of the things I learned very early on is that with free software, you get exactly what you get, good and not-so-good. One learns to tweak it around the edges and maybe internally or else live with its limitations; one supplies its makers with suggestions and bug reports with little expectation of recognition; one learns to use alternate software wherever possible, if only for 'just in case'; and one lives with a sense of gratitude that somebody else has bothered to make a nifty tool for free that one doesn't have to code and debug themself - if even they could.

    Perhaps you can understand that...

    A sense of gratitude. Ah... something I very much doubt igelmitdeagle would grasp. But it was a good reminder for all of us. Thanks.
