Is there any way to bring back the drop-down address bar from older Opera versions in 26? In Opera 12 is was disabled by default, but you could turn it back on in opera:config. Haven't found any place to do that in the newer versions.

RE: Bing as Default Search Engine in Opera 26Opera for Windows
Same issue here, of course. After the update, I find that the search engine I chose to use has been removed, and even when I copy the settings from Opera 12 to bring it back, it's not possible to set it as default. Because apparently Opera has decided for me that I should use another search engine. Not going to happen.
I've already been hesitant enough to upgrade to the newer Opera because several of the design changes frustrate me compared to Opera 12. I clung to version 12 for as long as I could, and finally just recently broke down and installed Opera 25 for better compatibility with certain things. Now one update later and another feature I use is removed.
So I'm pretty much done with this. I was already hesitant enough to switch to the new Opera, but if they don't add an option to make a custom search engine your default, then I'm just going to give up on this and move to Seamonkey or Pale Moon. While still keeping Opera 12.17 around as long as I can.
