Searching from text selection in O12 Mail

  • One of the reasons I want to stick with O12 Mail is the selected text context menu options for Search and Search With. And what I would really like is to have the search take place in the default browser, O24, instead of O12. Is that possible to achieve?

  • In Opera 12, goto "Alt + P -> advanced -> programs". Add/set the http and https protocols to open with the default browser (or the browser of your choice). Then try the search to see if it opens in the browser you want.

    Besides that, I'll check on the standalone Opera Mail to see if that context menu can be added (most likely it can).

  • Fantastic! Works perfectly. I couldn't be happier.
