Opera 51 does not remember last bookmark folder

  • Yes I'm suffering with this also. And I've noted none of the regular contributors to this forum have replied on this so that pretty much means that's the default! 😞

  • Thank you all

  • same. when i'm pressing on heart at the left panel "Bookmarks bar" folder opens. what the hell? i can see bookmarks bar at the top already! before it opened "Other bookmarks" and it was OK. it had been 2 updates already and non of them fixed this problem!

  • @greemanik Maybe it's not considered a problem but an intended change?

  • @leocg I'm thinking the same. I'm getting sick and tired of the devs making stupid changes like that when there has been no complaints or reason to change somethig that isn't broken. Opera just continues to suck with each and every new update.

  • @leocg i don't think its an intended change. because why is it needed to see bookmark bar in two places at the same screen? it's annoying as hell...
    or devs are just making fun of users...

  • @greemanik Did you ever think that most probably lots of people don't use the bookmarks bar?
    And also that those who use the bookmarks bar may want to go directly to their bookmarks when opening the bookmarks manager?

  • @leocg So why not give people to choose which folder to see first when they open bookmarks manager?
    And it's not a necessity to work with bookmarks bar in bookmark manager when you can do it directly at the top "bookmarks bar" panel.

  • @greemanik Maybe the idea is that people use only the bookmarks bar and speed dial, avoiding confusion and making things more easy for the users.

  • +1 to changing it back to the way it was, if I use the boookmark bar I already see those bookmarks, so when I want to see my other bookmarks I want to see... my other bookmarks and not the ones in the bookmark bar.

  • +1 I DON'T use the bookmark bar. Why have my bookmarks become Other?

  • @peejay It's a feature. Be thankful 🙃

  • EUREKA! I find a temporary solution! Go to bookmarks, then right click on tab with bookmarks and choose pin tab. It will remember your last visited bookmark folder. And you can click on heart in sidebar too. 👌🏻 😎 👍🏻

  • I find temporary solution! Open bookmarks in new tab, right click on it and choose pin tab. It will remember last visited bookmark folder. And it works with heart in sidebar. And yes, i know it opens bookmarks as default, when starting opera, but i don't mind . For me this is lesser of two evils... 🙃

  • @arsenije86

    Thank you for your suggestion. I have tried it but that causes another annoyance as the other bookmarks tab is always open and means my speed dial is no longer dominant.

    Still would be great if someone at opera could give us all the choice about how we use and view bookmarks. I am no expert but surely it must be acheiveable?

  • If you don't use the bookmarks bar a temporary solution is to move all your bookmarks from the "other bookmarks" to the "bookmarks bar" and not paying attention to what the title says.

  • @xirit32 Thanks for that! hadn't realised you could drag 'n drop bookmarks. Shouldn't have to do that but still, thanks again.

  • Got this version today, but everytime i update, the browser gets more complicated. I'm not going to use the bookmarks bar and still everytime I want to look for a bookmark in my huge list i get sent there first. Why can i not just define in the settings where clicking on bookmarks sends me? On Microsoft Edge for example you can set what happens when opening a new tab.

  • +1 for remembering the last open bookmark folder. The current implementation is redundant and super annoying:

    • If I use the bookmarks bar, then I already have it displayed on top of my browser window. So when I go to Bookmarks view, I probably want to display a different bookmarks folder.
    • If I don't use the bookmarks bar, then when I go to Bookmarks view, I probably want to display a different bookmarks folder.

    Either way I probably DON'T want to go to the bookmarks bar folder.
