  • Can someone please tell me what Opera has done with bookmarks.

    I have crossgraded from Firefox and bookmarks don't seem to exist in Opera. They don't exist in the help, on the forums, on the web. They don't exist in the Settings panel.

    Please tell me I've missed something incredibly obvious.

    And in case it needs to be mentioned 'Bookmark Importer' is greyed out. I do notice a mention of converting bookmarks to speed-dial, but if the Importer is inoperative, well....

  • What Opera version are you using? The current released Opera version (18) contains a bookmarks bar (aka Quick Access Bar), but some versions (like 15-17) didn't have it or required it to also be manually enabled both in opera:flags and in settings. Bookmarks importation is not fully implemented yet for browsers like Firefox, IE, etc. The current Opera version will import from Old Opera (12.16 or earlier) or can be made to bring in Chrome bookmarks.

  • I have the latest Opera, there's no bookmarks bar. I've just taken some screenshots to verify it. If you'd like to see them, let me know.

    I will, at some point have a look at forcing the bar through the flag thing. Thanks for letting me know.

    Like everything else in Opera, 'Quick Access Bar' is absent from the Help.

    If someone from Opera is reading this (unlikely) please note there is a convention in the software industry known as a Beta-release. If you really want to inflict half-built software on unsuspecting users and drive them away for ever to another browser, at least warn them first.

  • You have to enable it on opera://flags/#quick-access-bar and also on settings.
