Believe me I have tried to find an extension that can do this to no avail. There used to be a Google Chrome Tool Bar for Opera as a widget but it has been withdrawn. Also I dont think the current version of Opera accepts widgets.

Customisation on macOSOpera for Mac
It is impossible to customise such things as the browser tool bar on macOS. The instructions to do so are misleading because they do not distinguish between Windows and Mac versions and instruct me to cmd+click the tool bar and it should be surrounded by a yellow square allowing me to change the appearance of, add buttons or download users templates.
This is clearly not the case and although I love the browser features I would love to be able to make the existing buttons a little clearer by changing size, design or colour.
RE: Sync not working for meSynchronization
Hi jonathanwylie, I have a similar problem (you may have seen my post) but I can see the reset sync page so I am currently trying a reset and I will let you know the results via this forum. So now it says I have no sync data stored and please login to sync. I login and the little icon (top right corner of the window shows a green tick but a few seconds later it disappears. When I go to the Opera menu in the tool bar I see I am logged in and when I click on that identity the little icon with the green tick reappears but again only for a few seconds. I now believe this is normal behaviour.
I finally have all my bookmarks synced accross both devices. It seems that each time I revisit the https://sync.opera.com/web/# site a little more is synced. Initially this page only showed 1 device after three tries it now shows 2 devices.
My guess is this is about connectivity, refreshing the sync page over and over seems to have worked for me but I note that Passwords and Preferences are greyed out. I notice in Preferences>Browser>Advanced Configuration there are encryption options, either using Opera credentials or a Passphrase. I did wonder what this "Passphrase" referred to on the Sync page was but this explains it. I am now wondering if I was to setup a passphrase would my Passwords and Preferences sync as well because they certainly have not so far.
jonathanwylie, I hope you can open the page above and try what i suggest. Reply if you still have a problem
Cannot sync across devices?Opera for Mac
What am i doing wrong? I have a newly downloaded version of Opera Mini for iOS 9.2.3 on my iPhone 5s.
I have a newly downloaded OSX Opera Desktop for 10.11.4
I have imported my Bookmarks and Settings from Chrome and added Speed dials.
I turn on both the iOS version and the OSX version and sign in on both to the same account but NO SYNC??
Customise tool bar options for Mac OSOpera for Mac
I understand it is still not possible to customise the tool bar in Mac OS. Having used Opera Beta for some time had I thought I would add some themes and perhaps change the appearance of the tool bar so I did a google search and found a lot of pages describing the use of Control+ click and options available under the Tools Menu and realised that these options were all available on PC.
Given that Opera has been around for a while and that I am using it on my iDevices as well I am surprised to find that features freely available on PC for some time are still unavailable on Mac OS.
No Spelling SuggestionsOpera for Mac
The Right click (command click) on an underlined word in my forum threads no longer produces spelling suggestions in the context menu.
I have tried Safari and Google Chrome and both are working fine for misspelled words only Opera is having this problem.
The Opera Help topic describes a Check Spelling setting in Preverences > Browser > Advanced but it does not exist. I am using US English system wide but the only option in the context menu is to search the web for the misspelled word in question.
Opera is my default browser but it will not be for much longer if I cannot correct spelling mistakes on the many forums I contribute to.
I wou;d happily attache a screen shot if it were possible on this forum.
Page SharingOpera for Mac
One of the little things I liked about Chrome was an extension which allowed sharing of a page via various media sites and by email. I note that there used to be a similar share bookmark function in Opera and I can understand why a little used feature like that might be discontinued but I'm surprised there have not been any similar addons developed for opera or have I missed something.
I used to use this function for my students and clients to share resource or research pages I had found that that may have been useful to them. Of course I can just copy and past the URL into an email but that is a much longer process.
Is Opera ready for OSX 10.11 (El Capitan)?Future releases
I am currently testing the Beta release of OSX 10.11 and have run into a few issues with Opera 30.0.1835.125. As expected some of my apps required updates or patches to work with El Capitan and I ran into a few problems using Opera to download them.
Emailed links to downloads opened in Opera but on confirming download and save to desktop Opera froze. I was unable to cancel or return to the browser window, the download option window being fixed in the foreground.
