Opera 21 - Search Engines missing. Empty space.

  • Hello everyone. So I downloaded Opera 21 - before I was using 20 - and it seems to be missing Search Engines. There's literally nothing there. This means that I can't search things by using adress bar. When I type something there, and click enter - nothing happens. I tried to reinstall entire browser and nothing happened.

    Does anyone know how to fix that? I would like to use google as my main search engine. Is there anyway to "download" search engine and put it somewhere in the folders?

    Cheers.

  • And btw. I don't use Opera 23+ because of my old computer. The newer versions seems to be very laggy and not well optimized on my computer. With that being said, I'm pretty convicted to the Opera 20 and 21. I can't use Opera 20, because my profile has been corupted there. That's why I downloaded Opera 21 yesterday.

    And here's screenshot of how it looks if anyone wonder.

    There's just empty space.

  • Seems like your profile on that one is corrupted also. You may be having computer issues that are not related to Opera, like Malware or a failing Windows install. That said, you could try adding the search engines manually.

    I recently was clearing my computer from malwares so it should be clear. I will scan with Avast tomorrow, but I don't think there's anything left there.

    And yes I could add them, but how? Where to find those engines and where to put them?

  • You just go to any search engine you want to add, right click the search box and create search engine. That said, just because you cleaned your system with Avast doesn't mean it is clean or that it stayed. Thats light saying I had a cold last week I can't get a cold this week. It doesn't work like that. Also check it Malwarebytes and Spybot in addition to Avast.

    I didn't said I cleaned with Avast. I used Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner, then showed the logs on the forum. They have told me what to copy into fix.txt and it was said that my computer is clean now from malwares.

    Could you explain step by step how to "create" a search engine? I would like to have google as my main. So should I go to google.com and right click on what? I don't understand.

  • Just go to any search engine you want to add, right click the search box and click create search engine. The menu that pops up is self explanatory.

    Okay so I created the engine. Before I was clicking literally on "search", not the search box. My bad.

    But there's something wrong unfourtunately. After I click "create search engine" the browser starts to freeze and stutters for some reason. After I close the google.com from where I created the engine, it stops stutters. Then I have check the settings and there's still no search engines there. After I created it should appear there, right? There's none then. And after I type "g ..." to search for something, the browser again starts freezing and stutters. In the end, it doesn't actually finish the loading. It's just stays in one place.

    Thoughts? I feel really confused. Everything was going smooth on Opera 20, why would 21 act like that?

  • Yeah, its damaged. Get something like Revo Uninstaller, completely remove Opera and reinstall it. If its still doing it after that you will probably have to format your drive and reinstall windows.
