Adress Bar DOESN'T fulfill its purpose ! ! !

  • Hello.
    I have a SERIOUS issue with opera, that is bothering me for literally years.

    I can't type in CUSTOM website adresses in the adress bar. I have access to some private websites and pages, that aren't following the usual mask, like "".
    But ALWAYS, when i try to put in something in the adress bar, INSTEAD of trying to access the desired website, it redirects me to google, or yaahoo search engines, with my desired adress auto-written into the search bar. AND, ofcourse, the needed website is not listed in the search results, becouse they are protected from search engines etc.

    COME ON!
    ADRESS bar is for Adresses, not search engines. What the hell, really? How am I supposed to get over this issue??

  • They are valid (web) addresses? How they look like?

  • You may try adding those sites to the Hosts file or LMHosts.
