Rollback

  • I been looking around if there was a way to easily just rollback my Opera version back to 27, since 28 brought in features that are the main reason why I stopped using Chrome and started using Opera again to begin with. And I'been unable to find any installers for version 27.

    And incase somebody might actually now a fix for the main issue I have with the new version I'm gonna mention that as well.
    So the main problem I have with the new version is that if I happen to download a file that I already have with the same name in a folder. Opera 28 now decides to add (1) at the end of the file name causing me to have duplicate files which is very god damn annoying. And there is no settings to change that.
    Another very minor problem I have with this is that I can't find anyway to Export my bookmarks and speeddials from Opera. I can import, but not export.

  • There's no export feature, you need to use an extension.

    To go back to the old version just delete the new version folder in the installation directory.

    You may need to also edit the file install_prefs.json (or something like that) and change the folder info.

    Or you can just delete the installation folder and install the old build.

  • I saw a way to rollback to the older version if you still had the files of the previous version in your installation directory, but since I had tried something else already I didn't have them. And I wasn't able to find a installer for the older version.

  • If you do a Bing search for Opera 27, there are a couple of sites that still have it posted....

    Thats standard practice for pretty much all web browsers.

    Opera 27 already did that, you won't solve your issue by rolling back a version.

  • Opera 27 didn't do it for me O.o

    And fortunately Firefox still doesn't do that ridiculous practice.
    Only browsers I know that do are Opera and Chrome.

    Add IE to that list.

    Don't you get a dialogue how to save? There must be one.
    Besides, while in practice those are more often the same/'duplicates', in principle they do not have to be such at all. Apart from occasionally the same file-name url part for a couple of files from different pages/servers, the files' contents themselves are not written in stone and subject to a possible or scheduled change on the server side (of course). It might relate to graphs, images on weather forecast/observation services, for example. Or when it's user uploaded content, it might be subject to updates by the users.

    I say what? You can just backspace those parenthenumbers in your download dialogue. For the dialogue to appear, you might need to check certain settings in the browser.
