  • which files and folders do I need to back up in case of emergency?

    The best thing to do is to backup the whole folder.

    Is there a file or folder which stores the bookmarked web sites' passwords?

    Login Data as said before.

  • Hi all,

    I've loaded the image of my FF bookmarks toolbar folders on to this storage site as http://imgur.com/EchSAzf

    I'm wondering if I can make Opera resemble FF with their folders containing bookmarks appearing across the top of the page in the toolbar so you just click on a folder and a drop down list of your bookmarks appears for that folder so you then just click on a link in that folder of your choosing to surf to a saved site as a bookmark?

    Thanks so much.

  • Hi leocg

    First, thank you so very much for all your kind and patient help.

    It’s been an enormous help in getting me up to speed with Opera which I’m really liking.

    I hope my questions have helped others, particularly newbies like me!

    I looked in Menu>Settings>Privacy and Security and found cookies but nothing specially about deleting/removing flash cookies.

    Is there a way to do that with Opera or an add-on to Opera?

    Thank you again.

  • I looked in Menu>Settings>Privacy and Security and found cookies but nothing specially about deleting/removing flash cookies.

    Flash cookies are cookies related to the Flash player plugin? They are probably part of the cookies for a page or domain so if you remove cookies for a site it should remove those flash cookies too.

    On the other hand, since it is a plug-in it may have its own cookie storage.

    Have you tried the bookmarks bar?

  • I've migrated my FF Bookmarks over but they don't appear on the bookmarks bar.

    Is there a trick to placing them on the bookmarks bar after they've been migrated?

    Thanks so much.

  • Is there a trick to placing them on the bookmarks bar after they've been migrated?

    Maybe you can do it in the bookmarks manager by moving/copying them to the bookmarks bar.

  • @leocg - If i visit Menu>Bookmarks>Imported Bookmarks>Imported from Firefox> it hen lists the folders but if I right click on the folder or Imported from Firefox or Imported Bookmarks I don't see a copy feature.

    How exactly could I copy my FF imported bookmarks to the bookmarks bar so they appear, as in FF, across the top of the page in the Opera toolbar/bookmarks bar?

    Thanks so much.

  • don't see a copy feature.

    Ctrl +C, Ctrl + V

  • I'd tried that but it won't work as it just displays the folders but won't copy them.

  • I'd tried that but it won't work as it just displays the folders but won't copy them.

    Even if you select them first?

  • How does one "select" them first?

    Do you mean open FF, copy all the FF folders and then paste them into the Opera bookmarks bar?

  • How does one "select" them first?

    You can use the old known Ctrl + A to select them all or you can use the mouse to select a few at a time.

    Do you mean open FF, copy all the FF folders and then paste them into the Opera bookmarks bar?

    Nope, you do it in Opera's bookmarks manager.

  • How do I reach the bookmarks manager?

    I chose Menu>Bookmarks>Imported Bookmarks>Imported from Firefox but maybe bookmarks manager is located elsewhere?

    Once I reach the Imported from Firefox and click the arrow once more I can see all the folders but if I take mu figner off the mouse I don't see the folders anymore so I can't Ctrl/A or Ctrl/C anything.

    Also, if I visit espn.com to watch a video it doesn't play in Opera.

    Do I need an add-on for that?

    Videos play fine on YouTube in Opera.

    Thank you!

  • How do I reach the bookmarks manager?

    Menu > Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks or Ctrl + shift + B

    I chose Menu>Bookmarks>Imported Bookmarks>Imported from Firefox but maybe bookmarks manager is located elsewhere?

    That's the bookmarks menu

    Also, if I visit espn.com to watch a video it doesn't play in Opera.

    Have you tried with the ad-blocker disabled for that page?

  • When I reach Menu>Bookmarks>Imported Bookmarks>Imported from Firefox (the bookmarks manager area) at that point if I click Alt/C nothing happens, it doesn't copy anything.

    I can see my FF folders but pressing Ctrl/C doesn't copy them.

    Video not loading - I copied the exact url for the video into that search box in Menu>Settings>Block Ads>Manage Exceptions and pasted that site's url as an exception to block ads but the video still does not play.

    Thank you.

  • You can't manipulate the bookmarks from the menu very much. Do it from inside the bookmarks manager. Press Ctrl + Shift + B to open it.

  • Video not loading - I copied the exact url for the video into that search box in Menu>Settings>Block Ads>Manage Exceptions and pasted that site's url as an exception to block ads but the video still does not play.

    Go to the page, click on the blue shield and turn off the ad-blocker for that site. See if it makes any difference.

    Btw, it's a html5 or a flash video?

  • @ ando242 - Thank you. That gets me closer to my goal. I don't see my FF bookmarks in folders, as I did in FF and as you can see in the link to the jpg I posted, so I'm not sure how they would appear on the Opera toolbar? But, once I've copied them all (Ctrl/C) and can you please share step-by-step how I then paste them all ) onto my Opera toolbar so I can just click on any of them to the be taken to a website I've bookmarked?

    Thank you so very much.

  • @leocg - On the espn.com site that little blue shield turns to clear or white but the blue is turned off. In my Block Ads - exceptions it lists espn.com

    Espn.com runs off Adobe Flash Player which I had updated to the most recent version 4 days ago and checked today that it is still the latest version.

    The video appears as a still photo/graphic with a right pointing arrow you're supposed to press to play the video except it doesn't in Opera.

    Here's the link

    so you can (hopefully 🙂 see what I'm talking about.

    I'm not quite sure how to remedy this?

    Thank you for all your help.
