    One by one?
    Ok, Tab mix plus as i understand, emulates a bit Opera. Maybe there's more to it, but what feature do you want from it? Session manager is built in, mouse too, etc.

    Try tools- appearance: in toolbars you choose what menus you want, and buttons you choose, well, buttons:D . This isn't just graphics, they are functions.
    This page is very good: http://operawiki.info/CustomButtons

    WSFuser, it seems the context menu (right click), when choosing a word, you can look it up for translations and encyclopedia.
    Opera is a world by itself it seems, as i didn't know this:p
    It's like being in a big city, i'll never see everything.

    edit: i've just started using voice!! it works too:eek:

    noscript is what i would like. You can do what noscript does, but not so easy. You go to tools- pref- content and choose there to turn it off, and allow it per site (right click- site prefs). I don't like this, and it seems that some ppl have problems with it. I just enable it in general... not that bad, there are few vulnerabilities, and they are easily fixed by Opera.
    I've asked at the Opera forum to make this. Maybe there's a button for this on the link i gaveo_O

    Keep the questions coming, or report your findings, i'm learning too:D

    the voice: i chose Hal :D to be my voice command. So i click the defined button, say "Hal back" and Opera goes back a page:eek:

    not rele what i wanted. i meant i want to change the mouse button actions. for example middle click on tab to close it and middle click on tab bar to undo close.

    currently in opera, middle clicking does close the tab but not the undo close.
    do u know if u can change the dictionary it uses?

    For mouse go to tools- pref- shortcuts - edit:thumb:
    Maybe duplicate the existing profile to backup these settings.

    i can only edit the gestures for "Application". Browser window has no shortcuts and clicking edit does nothing.

    I'll probably stop using SandboxIE. How do i save all these changes, and delete the rest??
    Maybe resume using it after tuning Opera

    Ice, i'm pretty clueless there. Who knows?:p
    I'm looking for an alternative for noscript. There's bound to be one, one of those custom buttons, where it could have a drop-down menu with the site prefs options (F12). I think i saw thato_O

    So much to read from Opera.

    but when your able to find its documentation
    its possible you'll be able to port scripts from other widget engines ;)
    (or at least hack the graphics :p )

    you can see how to customise menus by seeing which files they edit/add here
    http://my.opera.com/community/customize/setups/menu/

    here's another link -

    i like some of these buttons -

    EDIT: /OT this is pretty cool too, but it probably won't help much lol you need to have JS enabled (put it in the addressbar) -
    opera:config

    i had this link bookmarked too -

    i haven't used any for awhile so i might get it wrong if i say, but i do use the web site development toolbar and that adds lots of extra menus at the top of the window and adds alot of extra right-click options too. you should be safe to just install some and see (they install the same way as themes), then you can select the menu you want to use here - tools>preferences>advanced>toolbars.

    i have played around with opera alot in the past and i normally make sure i have a backup before i do anything. in windows it's the place where you have to enable hidden folders i think.
