Add Bookmark Extension: Need to Uninstall and Reinstall

  • Many people in the forum are using the extension, Add Bookmark, as it adds important functionality to Opera 22 in terms of the taking of the bookmark.

    With that extension, you can add a bookmark, by clicking on a star in the far right side of the Address Bar, or by right clicking on the empty spot on a website, and then, clicking on the star in the context menu.

    With the star in the address bar, you could, by clicking on it, put the bookmark in the folder of your choice in your personal bookmarks bar, as part of taking the bookmark. That's a nice feature. For a while, when you right clicked on the empty spot on the website page, and chose the context menu approach to add your bookmark for that page, you could not do that -- add the bookmark to the folder of your choice in your personal bookmarks bar (as part of the action of taking the bookmark). You now can now, however, with the latest update.

    Unless you added the extension after the latest update, you may need to uninstall the extension, and then reinstall it, to get this additional feature to work for you. I've posted this in the "Opera for Windows" forum because so many forum users of Opera 22 use this add-on, (Indeed, it provides functionality many would have liked as part of the native browser) and I thought putting it here would at least make this latest change more likely to be noticed.
