Behaviour of address bar in Opera

  • I'm using Opera 12.16
    When I type a word in Opera address bar I've noticed it suggests me a mix of matching results of my history and bookmarks.

    This is nice but something I find really strange is the way it is sorted, in a disorderly way :
    I type a word, first results are some boomarks, then I see some visited pages of my history, and then at the end of the list some bookmarks again...

    How is that sorted ?!?

    Is this possible to only show history or bookmarks when typing rather than both mixed ?
    Or is it possible to make that mix better sorted ? First all bookmarks, then the history ?

    Thank you for your help.

  • Type 'opera:config' into the address bar and press enter/return, and the Preference Editor page will load.

    Type 'addressfield' into the search field at the top of the that page and press enter/return, and a short list of results regarding what is displayed in the address field will appear. Look through that list and tick or untick the options that you want and click the save button at the bottom.

    You may have to restart Opera for the changed settings to take effect.

  • Hello @linuxmint7 , Thank you for your answser.

    Your suggestion offers me possibilities for :
    -Dropdown Button
    -Content search
    -Search suggestion

    I can't see any option to influence bookmarks or history behaviour, so this doesn't help me at all.
    Thank you anyway.

  • For my everyday needs, I have to only type a single letter and press "Enter". The very first suggestion changes when I visit something else via the address bar starting with the same letter. Then I just have to "rearrange" that back by visiting that usual page again*:idea:*
    To find something less "unique", I just use more letters*:D* And yes, sometimes I need to scroll up-down when I see the needed item in the dd list*:sherlock:*
    I like autosuggestions*☕*
