Saving bookmarks & stopping favicons

  • How does one backup bookmarks with Opera 43? I could find no way to do that from Preferences or any of the menus. Is there any way to block favicons? I do not want them.
    I use MacOS 10.12.3.

  • Thanks. I found an extension which can export bookmarks as HTML.
    What about favicons? Is there any way to remove them apart from going into the profile and deleting the favicons files there? There should be some way simply to block them.

  • With V7 Bookmarks you can Import / Export with or without favicons.

  • Got it. Thanks. I guess there is no way to block favicons from coming in at all? Is there some kind of Terminal tweak that could do that, similar to blocking favicons from Safari?

    If there is I do not know. Maybe Google or another user knows something about.

  • Bookmarks Bar favicons will be automatically pulled (I guess from Opera servers or generally from the net)
    You can't control that. Once you are online, Opera will check which bookmark from Bookmarks Bar is missing favicon and try to pull it
    Other bookmarks won't pull favicons (if missing), unless you visit them (they will be visible in next session I think, not immediately) or if you load favicons from HTML file
    I'm not sure about favicons behavior when imported (during install) from other browsers, probably it will pull available favicons too

  • I think I managed to stop the Favicons. After using this procedure, I do not see favicons in my bookmarks any more.

    "Delete ~Library/Application Support/com.operasoftware.Opera/Favicons & with Terminal:
    cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/com.operasoftware.Opera
    ln -s /dev/null Favicons"

    That makes the Favicons file look like an alias, and I got no more favicons.

    How do you get this forum to put proper linebreaks into code?

  • That worked only once.

    How do I get rid of posts here? I cannot seem to delete anything.

  • I guess the only way to stop the Favicons is to lock the file in the profile. I shall try that and see what happens.

  • @Concretable

    At this rate you reach @LeoCG in few weeks! :lol:

  • Editing the whole thing just saves the original and adds a new post. There ought to be some way to delete one's own posts.

  • Just can be edit within the 30' since are done.

    The only way to "delete" them it's to report them and explain the reason "duplication" in the message to the moderators.

  • Just for the record, locking the Favicons file in the profile does indeed stop them from appearing in the bookmarks.
