[Solved]Can't manage bookmarks at all

  • Hello,

    I'm new to Opera and am trying to set up my browser. I've imported my bookmarks from Chrome, but I am not able to manage the bookmarks in any meaningful way. I can't drag and drop anything. I can't create any new folders. I can't empty the trash. I don't get any floating window when I hover my mouse over a bookmark or a folder.

    The documentation is outdated and refers to buttons that do not exist. The only things I'm able to do to a bookmark are "Edit" and "Move to Trash".

    Is there some problem with my Opera installation? Is there some setting that I have enabled or disabled that locks Bookmarks to prevent them from being moved?

    This is basic stuff, obviously fundamental functionality that is necessary but apparently broken for me.

    Please help.

    Thank you.

  • What happens when you try to do those things?

  • Aha. I found the issue. I had enabled the "redesigned bookmarks page" in opera://flags . It totally doesn't work at all. Once I disabled that experimental feature, bookmarks started working correctly.

    Sorry for the false positive.
