Upgrade

  • I upgraded to the latest opera. Now I can't get my "Fit To Width".
    No band with "File" "Tools". etc.
    No key for passwords. Why does this stuff have to be so difficult for us older users?

  • The latest version of Opera has had nothing in common with the older version of Opera for almost two years. They are completely different browsers, based on completely different engines (guts). The old version 12.17 and older were based on Opera ASA's own propitiatory (in-house) engine and the new Opera is based on the open source Chromium engine. They are not compatible and share nothing with each other, except name. The new Opera has been built entirely from scratch. You should maybe do a little research to maybe enlighten yourself on what has happened regarding Opera over the past two years.

    Oh. and unless you have uninstalled it yourself, the older version of Opera you were using before the so called upgrade should still be installed and working on your computer.

  • Thanks linux, I noticed that the old version was still there and have retained while I figure out the new one. Where do you recommend that I research?

  • Start with the Help file (F1 or Opera menu > Help) and of course check Settings. As far as the history ... basically, Opera 12 wasn't compatible with many web apps (Google Docs, Gmail webmail, Yahoo webmail, etc.) and they decided they were spending too much time patching incompatible sites.
