    Goto the URL opera://settings/onStartup, select "Open a specific page or set of pages", click "add a new page" and type in the URL of the page you want. That will make Opera start up with just your homepage open in a tab. But, if you do that Opera won't remember all your open tabs. Maybe that's what you want though.

    Note though, that won't affect what happens when you open a new tab or click the start page button on the address bar. Those will still open the start page.

    If you want to add a Home button to the address bar, you can install this extension. The extension has another option to override what loads in a new tab, but that's not permitted in Opera, so that part won't work.

    Nope.

    Disable promoted speed dials if this is what you are talking about. Or maybe speed dial suggestions.

    how do i get an email when somebody answers a forum post?

    In your forum settings. That you reach by clicking on you avatar at the top right.

  • @leocg i had hoped to post an image of the ads of facebook, amazon etc. but this forum does not let me upload it from the computer.
    thanks for your help

  • Yes, it does. There is even am icon for you do do that.
