I have the same problem (between a whole range of others).
My question is really simple (to the developers): why is it so hard to understand, that for a simple user the less clicks and moves you have to do with the mouse, the easier the job is. I don't really care where the downloaded file is saved as long as I decided that I don't want it saved, I wan't it opened.
Unfortunately I have to say that the extra options that Opera 12 gave me (in comparison with firefox and chrome)seem to be all gone, or present in the others also.
In the other hand, I am glad that the bookmarks problem seems to be solved, so if I will see some important options back I will stay loyal to opera (as I have been for the last 8 years).
Until then I am still just disappointed to see my favorite browser giving up its great personality in order to become more alike some other more popular ones.
