Youre lucky. I posted a similar tread but some ret....arded op closed it saying it was too much of the same kind ... I used the search and there is NO ONE POST with an answer from opera devs and cause he blocked my post I will never have the chance of receiving any anwers. Seems that the new Opera policy is "we care a shit about the people who used our browser for years"

RE: Problem with Default Search EnginesOpera for Windows
RE: default_partner_content.json CRCOpera for Windows
I forget to add a note to the Opera devs:
I dont care if you need to add yahoo,duckduckgo and other @#@#(&(&# to my search engines! If you need to do it for money, then add them and block people from deleting it.Thats ok. BUT DONT ADD THEM ON FORCED LETTERS! ALLOW PEOPLE TO CHANGE THE LETTERS YOU USE TO THAT ENGINES and we will be all happy then! If a user got something binded to "y" dont overwrite it.just add yahoo as "YA" or "Y" + any second free letter you find.
Please switch to that scheme
default_partner_content.json CRCOpera for Windows
I loved opera for years...since windows XP I used opera and "evangelize" all my coworkers convioncing them to use Opera ... but the lastest version of Opera dont even let me use Y for Youtube, hard lock the ability to choose all letters on the search engines blocking changes of the file "default_partner_content.json" ... that was the last straw.
I understand the need to of Opera to capitalize and overwrite the file with every Update ... i understand how they stripped all functions when switching presto engine but opera was about customization and enforcing users with this lastest hack blocking the file was excesive.
If they dont step back from this on the next update I definitively switch to Chrome and never look back.
Sorry about my bad english but Im pretty sure everyone will understand what I mean and I know Im not the only one pissed off by what happened.
And yes! no matter how trivial it sounds, the ability to set the search engines to what I want and stop being enforced/overwritten its a must! Chrome dont do it.Firefox dont do it.So why the browser who become famous for customization do it ?
