I like the ability to control things. I loved Opera 12 for that but its impossible to use these days as its so incompatible with so many websites, so sad. Now I use Firefox but its also not compatible with a few websites so I'm looking for a Chromium based browser that has more options/control than Google Chrome. Any suggestions? Is Opera a candidate?

Where are Opera Mail folders?Opera for Windows
I was wondering about the folder location of Opera Mail emails, contacts and preferences. I thought I changed the location of the emails and omailbase.dat is there upon a restart as well as the indexer folder. But my email messages aren't there anywhere. Do I need to physically copy them over from the previous location? Is this easy to mess up? They're very important. And do I need to copy the Preferences and Contact files over too or will Opera Mail do that for me if I change their location?
Audio notifications in Win7 often don't work with Opera Mail.Opera for Windows
I am perplexed. Sometimes audio notifications work and sometimes not. All other programs seem to activate audio notifications fine. With Opera Mail its intermittent. I have no idea what to check. I use the Win7 Volume Mixer at C:\Windows\System32\SndVol.exe to be able to adjust individual volume levels for each application. Very handy. Also it tells me if I'm going to get any notifications from Opera Mail. If its absent there ain't goin' to be any notifications for me! I haven't tried restarting Opera Mail at different intervals upon startup (would it help if it was the first thing started or could another program block these notifications from getting through to Win7?). Tis a mystery! Any suggestions would be most appreciated. I love Opera Mail. its relatively lean, very easy to use, very predictable but audio notifications are very important to my work and allow me to be much more untethered to the computer, as they are to most anyone using computers.
Opera Mail: How to change storage location for messages?Opera for Windows

Is it possible to control where your email messages are stored on your computer?
Opera Mail using so much CPU resources when updating FeedsOpera for Windows
This just started recently and I'm using less Feeds than before. Anybody else noticed this?
Can you recommend a better RSS reader? Opera Mail is OK but there are many features it could have I'm finding that are very different from what an email program should do. Different programs for different tasks as they say.
Using on Win7.
RSS in Opera Mail: Possible to show more of the message?Opera for Windows
I'm quite happy with Opera's RSS reader except it doesn't show much of the message. To see more I have to launch the link and this wastes a lot of time. If I could just get it to read more. Is this under the control of the reader program (Opera Mail) or is dictated by the website? RSS is just a miraculous way of sorting through volumes of info but only if it works the way the user needs it to work.
If Opera Mail can't control this are there any other RSS readers that can?
Opera 12.18: Cannot change location of Wand and ContactsOpera for Windows
I cannot seem to change the location for bookmarks.adr, contacts.adr or Wand.dat. It just says "File not found. Check the file name and try again." I'm not asking it to find a file. I'm trying to select a location for the file from now on. Is this a deficiency in 12.18? Its rather important to back up bookmarks, contacts and passwords! I want them in one folder and then I'll back up that folder every so often.
Operamail: I hid an email account, now I can't seem to show itOpera for Windows
When you right click an email account, Customize, then Hide, it vanishes from view.
The problem is I don't know how to bring it back.
Does anybody know?
I tried right clicking the empty space, Show Messages from, All Accounts & Mail accounts but that didn't work.
RE: Bookmarks program for Opera 12, Firefox and ChromeLounge
I wonder if a spreadsheet program might be a better way of doing it. I could always use a word processor with folders and subfolders. But a spreadsheet allows me to label things and would be a lot more powerful.
