Profile in v. 18

  • Win XP SP3
    Opera 18

    I just removed v.12, installed v.18, but it doesn't detect my profile, and is using all the default settings. Am I correct that my profile is in MyWinusername/ApplicationData/Opera/Opera
    and how do I get Opera to detect it? I imported my bookmarks, but I don't know how to access them, as my customized UI is gone.

  • Opera 18 (Opera 15+ in fact) doesn't use your old Opera Presto profile but a new one, once it is a considered a new and different product.

    Uninstall Opera 18, reinstall Opera 12.16 and then install Opera 18 again. It should detect you Opera 12.16 profile and ask if you want to import some elements of it (Speed Dials, passwords, bookmarks, custom searches).

  • So it doesn't keep my customized UI?
    Does 18 have security updates, or was the change just window dressing?

    Nope.

    Everything changed. New engine, new UI, new and different features.
