Donloading Files: Dialog Box "Open, Save, Save As, Cancel"

  • Ive created an account for the sole purpose of bitching about this shortcoming!
    Ive just spent 2 f@#$%king hours stuffing about trying to find out how to fix this problem.
    Only to find that there is just no fix. This lack of function is a complete balls-up in my opinion.
    It is so time wasting to have to save files and then go to the folder and then open the file.
    Many links to files (eg links to Google Earth KMZ files) are only ever opened once, but I may, during research, need to open 10 to 50 of these links!
    Ive come from mozilla (Pale Moon) to help with some mozilla specific bugs, only to find that Opera is yet another Cut-down, limited function Browser.
    Will the Developers please show a little respect for the professional end-user and PLEASE FIX THIS.
    This is a MUST HAVE option for researchers. I wish some developer would make a decent, full function browser, Id bpay to have it and the support.

    And why exactly do we need change like that?

    Why not? Files will be downloade anyway, at least we will know where they are. πŸ™‚

    Really? And where is your answer?

  • This postΒ΄s objective is to provide arguments for this suggestion and show how many people is interested in this.

    I have realised that there is people who likes this setting as it is at the moment. Therefore, I suggest that Opera Developers could make this feature posible but as an optional feature, thus, who wants to keep this setting doesn't need to do anything and the people who is asking for this setting can change it.

    I know that this is not so easy as I described. In this case, I'd like to ask for a reason to not have this feature available.

    Regards

    You know, before an opened file could be on a unknow temp folder depending on the settings and stay there for months. Now you will know where the files is.

  • Yes please, give us a dialog "Save to temp/Open/Save As/Cancel" as it used to be when Opera was Opera. It's so annoying to LOSE functionality you're used to! 😞

    First, do you know what context of senteces is? Try to read it again. And second, why should I care about files that I dont need anymore and will be deleted automatically? This files will do only mess at my folders. If I need something to store I will save it to my folders. But let me ask you one question... are you store garbage at same place as things that you need/want or do you "store" it in bin which will be cleaned up automatically by dustman?

    I really dont get it why do you need to control something you dont need anymore and will be deleted anyway.

  • First, do you know what context of senteces is? Try to read it again.

    I don't see any problems.

    And second, why should I care about files that I dont need anymore and will be deleted automatically?

    That's the point: Can you be sure that those files will be automatically deleted? I used to need to delete them manually because they were never deleted automatically.

    But let me ask you one question... are you store garbage at same place as things that you need/want or do you "store" it in bin which will be cleaned up automatically by dustman?

    I usually don't download garbage. However when ni need to download a file just to check something i use to download it to a temp folder.

    You really have some issue to understand context of sentence or verbal analagies. If you download file and use it so then you dont need it anymore and now its "garbage" for you. Understand now? Also youve not answer the previous question: what is vanguard about lack of features?
