Deactivate suggestions while typing in adressbar

  • Hello there,

    I think since the last update there is a feature that gives me suggestions while I type an URL in the adressbar. These suggestions include entries from my bookmarks.I find that really annoying and on the other hand I don't want everybody who just checks a website on my computer to see a few of my bookmarks, just because he types an URL.

    Is there away to deactivate this feature?

    (If the sentences sound funny, please don't mind, Englisch isn't my first language ;-) )

  • I don't believe there is a way to disable that.

  • Isn't there really some kind of makeshift fix to at least exclude the bookmarks from this feature? I'm using Opera since 2003, but this small problem would ruin it for me :( It's mostly a privacy issue.

    It earlier times there was a way to work it out via the opera:config, but there doesn't seem to be something like that in the new opera, right?

  • Put this in your address bar

    opera://flags/#bookmark-suggestions

    then disable it. That about what you were looking for?

  • ...and on the other hand I don't want everybody who just checks a website on my computer to see...

    Why not install the browser under your system account then? Allow for the password, and create one. Then, signed in under it, you could install programs into no-common folders - like /user/AppData or something.

  • @lando: Thanks, that was exactly what I was looking for!

    @joshl: I actually do not really unerstand, what you mean and why I would benefit from installing Things in /user/AppData?

    It's not about installing it there but about using a account to login into your OS so that someone using your computer wil be using another account and won't be able to see your data while using a program.

  • The problem seems to be back again, since the option to deactivate opera://flags/#bookmark-suggestions again.

    Does anyone know an alternative to deactivate this? I really finde this very annoying and do not understand why opera deletes the option to deactivate it.

  • A few months have passed. A few new opera versions have been published. Does anyone one if there is a option to disable suggestions from my bookmarks, when type something into the addressbar?

    I saw that with firefox it is possible to deactivate this in their standard proerities menu. But I do not want to use firefox, I like opera but I hate how they remove option after option even in their deep down "hidden" configurations.
