How to show more then 10 search engines in the bar?

  • I have about 25 or so search engines in Opera but for some reason only the first 10 on the list appear at the bar:

    What can I do so all the search engines' icons show up at the bar and can be used directly from there?

    Using Opera 41.0.2353.46 on LXLE 16.04.1 Eclectica.

    Thank you very much in advance.

  • 10 is the limit there, you need to use search keywords to use other search engines.

  • Yes I realize the limit is ten, but is there something or some file or database I can edit so that limit which makes no sense at all can go away?

    Maybe searching with keywords makes sense for programmers and advanced users but for the general user it makes no sense at all, not only would I have to know by mind every search engine I have but I would also need to know the letter or letters assigned to each one of them... It's ludicrous, every time to use that method I'd need first to make a research that would take me perhaps a minute or so, so I could find out where so search and how, to make a one second search. It'd be better to have a bookmarks tab with the list of websites I could be using for a search and first going into the website and then using it's search engine, like it was made some years ago...

  • I found in Opera settings that a search box in the address bar can be enabled, but... Am I doing something wrong or is that search box totally useless because you can use only one single search engine in there, the default search engine?

    If so, what's the point of it existing in the first place since you can do the exact same thing in the address bar?! And it's even better in the address bar because there you can search your bookmarks and with nine more search engines and in that extra search box you can't?!

    So strange that Opera is such an amazing browser and has this basic functionality mistakes.
