    I don't advertise any access, system is displaying them automatically based on extension features.
    Maybe you didn't use Opera for long time, or blocked updates with firewall .. I don't know why you get new permission message
    If you don't want to use it, fine by me.
    cheers

  • @vux777: OK

  • Astonishingly annoying; (width of favourites sidebar). I thought this issue was dealt with previously, and I was happy, but an unwanted update got past me and now the thing occupies far more of my screen than I want or need.

    What's the answer?

  • @whiskybreath
    can you post a screenshot of your problem?... feel free to blur private data
    and pls post your Opera version and OS

    EDIT: and does it happening with pinned sidebar too?

  • @vux777 Many thanks for replying. Yes, that's with both pinned and unpinned.Screenshot attached; I would usually have a sidebar about half of the width of that one shown. This is far too much, and intrudes on the main screen to the extent that newspaper columns are squashed; together with the inevitable adverts, the actual content becomes about half of my screen area.

  • @whiskybreath I see
    By your screenshot, I think that's the minimum width of the sidebar.
    On my monitor (1920x1080 resolution) minimum sidebar width is 320px. (normal DPI)
    By your screenshot it looks like it's 400px, but you either enlarged the photo or changed some DPI settings in windows
    I could make a bug report/request to Opera to evaluate that decision about minimum width, but I think that's tightly related to other content in sidebar (like messengers)

  • @vux777 Yes, my monitor is 1920x1080, and all the settings (display and Oracle) are at 100%, (as usual). I don't know how to measure the width of the sidebar, but it's still too wide...!

    ....wait! I can see some of the issue; I use a separate monitor with my laptop, so side by side they look like this, with the laptop monitor on the right:

    It would be fine if I used the laptop monitor, but certainly not on the larger external one. I used to be able to narrow it down to a comfortable width, but no longer, apparently.

  • @whiskybreath
    just for the record, I (or better to say extension, any) can't affect sidebar width, that's strictly user action (dragging it to max- min width)
    That said, Your desktop monitor looks zoomed, that's why I thought you changed DPI in windows
    Your laptop monitor matches the size of Opera browser on my screen (and the min sidebar width)

  • Indeed, but I can see no purpose to having a 'minimum' width, especially when in cases such as mine, it is not nearly narrow enough - you'll note that the 'maximumum' is way over there:Clipboard03.jpg
    far closer to the right-hand side of the screen than the minimum to the left. It strikes me as illogical and arbitrary. And annoying...

    Thanks for your help.

  • PS - one day, and that day may never come...
    Opera will allow users to vary the width of the scroll bar; my eyesight and dexterity are not those of a 18-year old...

  • Не удаляет дубликаты. 2 часа тупого зависания и в корзине ни одной закладки.
    Не устанавливайте, если вам нужен этот функционал.

  • Не работает удаление дубликатов. Только рассказывает, что у меня их больше тысячи, но удаления не происходит. Запускала на ночь, утром ни одной закладки в корзине.
    Для меня бесполезная вещь оказалась.
    Что я делаю не так? Опера для МАК 10.10.5
    Не смогла удалить прошлый отзыв.(((

  • So, we are back to the old Internet Explorer? Because that's how "Favourites" looked like in that browser on Windows XP in 00's.

  • I've installed V7 Bookmarks and Sessions in Opera. In Settings page of V7 Bookmark there written: "Save session in 'V7 Sessions', if existing". What does it mean? There is no such option in V7 Bookmarks after selecting bookmarks and folders. Do the both apps work together in some ways?
    Debian Bullseye + Opera Developer.

  • Two points

    1. Create "Bookmark selected! and add "Export selected" (!!!)
    2. Unify context menus for the three extensions, please, V7 - Stash, Bookmarks and Sessions. I beg you for that, really.
  • I'm using V7 Bookmarks (Version 4.8.0) with opera (Version:73.0.3856.257) on a linux system (arch).
    Sidebar is configured as permanently visible.
    Opera is loosing the V7 bookmark content all the time after some minutes and shows a blank sidebar. Till now, I couldn't figure out a systematic on that behaviour. After using reload botton, I see them again and its ok for a while.

  • Extension is clumsy and adds nothing of significance to the management of bookmarks over the included bookmark library.
    The session controls, while basic, are a missing necessity from Opera and are a welcome inclusion, but does not go anywhere near far enough to be a bookmark manager rather than just a variable theme.

  • @whiskey: Extension was made more than 6 years ago, when Opera didn't have bookmarks in sidebar, and overall Opera design was much different. This now is unified extensions sidebar and webUI sidebar that was added and modified over the years.
