In some options I really don't know how they're set. Like HTTPS over experimental QUIC protocol. It has options: Default / Enabled / Disabled.
But how it's set when it's in Default? The same Built-in Asynchronous DNS. It will help to use same logic like others when Default is in parentheses.
Yeah, Opera button is a nasty piece of UI. Why don't give us a small button on the toolbar, like in Chromium or Firefox.
What's worse, it looks like donkey doodoo on borderless themes: http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/137/6/1/nastyoperabuttan_by_slowboyfast-d7ipu1a.png
Dreaming of both for sooo long... Of course, icons were in Opera 12- for years, and thus was requested several times, but without echo
About sorting, when you have many search engines, it is really a must to have them alphabetically sorted.
Hope that your post will be read and understood
The files might've got corrupted or moved.
Or your previous and current installations don't fall under the same user rights. The former one might've been under the common share, now it might be under a certain Windows account, or like that... You make sure where they are.
Also, how can Google and other search be removed for :Default Search Engine" settings?
Btw, this forum is for suggestion only and not for report issues and/or ask questions about Opera.
So please post your questions to the appropriate forum according t your OS.
"except where required by law or regulation"
If your concept is safe for me, and act like secure vault only I can access, then what kind of data exactly can Opera provide? So have they unencrypted data?
May be the data is not really encrypted by only one key.
Really End-To-End-Ecryption? I hope it may be, but i distrust.
I can be encrypted by more keys, but if concept is secure from my point of view, I have to be the ONLY ONE to be able to read unencrypted data. There's no need for any kind of software to be able to read my PRIVATE data.
Let's say, it should work, like I save my local Truecrypt file container with Opera Link/Sync data on Opera server, encrypted with my password. Sure there can(probably) should be enhancement with more keys, but anywat. I have to be ONLY one, to be able to read my unenctypted PRIVATE data. This is my view on privacy. Any other concept is made due to hidden reasons.
And you trust system, where your data can be accessed on store side (server) implicitly? But you are afraid of secure vault? I just don't get it.
"Opera restricts internal access to this information exclusively to those who need it for the operation of the Link service"
Opera restricts? It means Opera can access and read my private data or not? Who except for me needs this data? I don't ask for rules. I ask from technical point of view. Can Opera read my private Link data without my password?
It's not clear, who (other person than myself) can really access the data. In these days of datamining and "law enforcement" by european and otehr states may be there could be a backdoor to decrypt the data.
I don't care what means who. Question is simple. Can anybody except me access/read my unencrypted private data?
And sure they can't do anything they want. Maybe in US. And today it's not problem to move server anywhere, where law is correct. Not something violating my privacy. If Firefox and any other company can have secure concept, why Opera can't. Simply it's decision of kind of implementation.
My privacy and private data belongs to me only. And sure I won't use any so called "secure" storage, that exploits my privacy.
Also now, I use offline synchronization of my Opera settings, based on filesystem mirroring. I just hoped, that Opera will honor our privacy, and will make concept of Link secure, so that anybody can use it without fear.
So please give me relevant reason, why concept cannot be secure?
