I'm asking myself why that happens... In chrome there was no way to tell since all extensions where just in a popup (or a separate popup window), so active window was usually the current one, so maybe it's a recent fix in chromium 46, but I can't tell if that is the case. Or maybe just a bug in Opera.
opera_autoupdate process is not related to an extension update. The extensions correctly update themselves also on a USB installation. If the permissions have been changed additional notification is displayed below the address bar.
yea, I get that..on the hard way ツ
I switched to getRootByName in my extension
but it wasn't documented anywhere
btw. id's are not consistent...they are changed when adding new nodes (folders/bookmarks)
Chrome doesn't behave like that BB is first child, other bookmarks is second (0 & 1). Everything else falls into those two.
In Opera other "major" roots switch their id's when something is added
