OP seems to want some kind of mixed mode - tabs/url visible, but able to scroll off the screen along with web page content.
I have no tablet here - how is fullscreen toggled currently? From complete outsider perspective, I would like to be able tap on some predefined area (eg top right corner) to bring tabs/url temporarily visible.
Yeah, we removed the SD search from the Start Page. You can still search your Speed Dials through the Bookmarks.
Well, that's a very bad idea IMHO. :XP: I really enjoyed the way Opera filters out the speed dials while typing in the search box and now while typing it in the address bar it doesn't even show you it's already a speed dial. OK - it does as long as you don't have a long browsing history (no dots on the left side just the "clock" icon or "web" or "google").
It works under folders so currently it looks like it was taken down by accident.
As for the issue with browser closing - this is weird. If there is only one Opera window - we are not allowing to close
the last tab there, in fact there shouldn't even be a button to close the last tab on the last window.
It occured for one day on my PC so lets leave this point. And you get the "X" on the only one tab once you get to some page.
