URL autocomplete prevents going to homepage

  • Hello, I have a small issue with the Opera url autocomplete function. Usually if I start typing an address (e.g. "youtube"), it will autocomplete specific youtube pages in my history. But if I type the whole address (e.g. ""), then it should go to the homepage. But sometimes the autocomplete still fills the url with a random history page even after typing the ".com", and I have to delete the extra junk after the backslash in order to go to the home page. It happens about 50% of the time and I don't know what triggers it.

    I would actually prefer if there was a way to remove the autocomplete feature, but I don't think it exists yet. Until then, is there a way to fix my immediate problem?

    Whatever else is usually relevant to questions that you might ask on an Opera forum, e.g. your Opera version, how much RAM is installed (not relevant in this case, but maybe for other questions).

    I have you a link that is relevant for Opera 12.16 or earlier, but that won't work if you're using Opera 15 or later.
