RE: Frustrated! upgraded from v12. to v30; Bookmark problems, finding tools, etc ---a royal PITA---
But, I can't see where v30 has user enhancements compared to v12. Finding my bookmarks is terrible. I have to click thru various levels to get to my imported bookmarks. It just seems goofy to me. I want them on the side panel instantly available like before. And why did I lose the user data field in my bookmarks, where I could store extra data, like a password hint.
other enhancements from previous versions. The little 'tool' thingy on the far right only shows my open tabs, which i can see perfectly well just by looking at the tabs!!!.
As an old user, will never be thankful for this new and improved Opera. It really doesn't give me anything different than Chrome, So, why don't I just switch to Chrome. Hmmm...
I faced the same problems after trying the new chromium based opera.
You could move all the imported bookmarks up one or 2 levels into the "bookmarks bar" and access your bookmarks with 2 clicks from the opera drop down menu. Or move all the bookmarks into speeddial.
Or you could install an bookmark extension which will give you a drop down menu from a toolbar icon.
I would choose Chromium before Chrome because of the default opt-out policy of Chrome whenever they come up with something new that is invades peoples privacy.
