Cannot remove AliExpress from suggestions

  • It ALWAYS shows first, and it can't be hidden.

    It seems a deliberate recent choice, as you can still hide others.

    Please don't go forward with this. I am already considering dropping Opera due to it losing almost any connection to its roots and because of the Chinese deal.

    Forcing me to see the Chinese web "suggestion" each time I open a new tab and taking customization away from me would be the last drop. I know people live from advertising and these deals; I don't care. I would simply choose Vivaldi or Chrome and get rid of this.

    Edit: actually found a way to get rid of it. Put it on your Speedial, then move it to Trash. Do NOT Empty Trash - it will immediately show yet again on Suggestions. Absolutely incredible.

    Please allow us to remove it as any other website, without these tricks.

  • For me, Opera sponsored suggestions always show first and always come back (I can remove them but they are back the next time I return to speed dial) which is why I just disabled suggestions completely. Not useful in its current form. 😞

    My god, it even comes back from the Trash 😕 You can temporarily "hide" it (1 hour? 2? 3? one app restart maybe?), but then it's recreated and slapped right back on the top of Suggestions. You can delete/hide the Opera suggestion - it won't return. But AliExpress? Stuck with it.

    This was not a case in Opera until this new dev version I've installed of Opera 41, I was on the x64 Opera 40 dev before it and all was OK, you could delete all the default items in Speeddial etc. In the end I gave up and unticked Suggestions altogether.

    I don't understand why they think this is OK to do. There is so much choice on the browser market, why would you risk alienating users?
