Thanks for the quick reply. It wasn't the same button I was looking for though. The one I wanted had a small text box where you could type the word in. With the new button, when you click on it a window opens below. Maybe they don't make the old button any more.
Can I copy the Operaprefs.ini file into the Library->Preferences->Opera preferences (and remove the operaprefs.ini file that's there)? Will doing that restore my old preferences? Should I rename the old preferences file first before moving it into Opera Preferences?
Or will doing the above that muck everything up?
How about this?
Copy bookmarks from Opera Preferences.
Delete everything else from Opera Preferences.
Delete all copies of Opera browser
Download Opera browser again.
Then load the bookmarks.
Then I will have a fresh copy of browser with all the default preferences and buttons and I have all the old bookmarks. I can then choose new preferences.
Will this work?
I don't understand how you managed to do that - it's not deletable, at least not in my copy. And there is no 'Custom' under 'Tools' - it's Appearance; this is what I see:
Are you possibly using an earlier version of Opera? I'm on the latest, 10.53.
Anyway, in that event you could try deleting the prefs as you suggest, though since deleting things from the Appearance pane isn't supposed to be an option it may not help: however it won't do any harm.
My search looks different. I deleted the buttons by going into Preferences and on the search page, I deleted the buttons there. In the Tools - customize, after deletion, the buttons are gone.
I managed to restore the buttons by saving bookmarks and deleting the Opera browsers and clearing the Opera Preferences from the Library. Then I downloaded new browsers and imported the bookmarks and reset the preferences.
The browsers now have all the buttons.
