    "12.16 - Bug found."

    October 4, 2013  |   By AlcoveSpring

    Version: Opera Portable Edition 12.16

    Pros

    I have only been running it for a couple of days. It seems to be OK.

    Cons

    I am running this portable app from my flash drive. When I start it up, a blue Downloads folder is created in my User's Favorites folder.

    I have set up the Downloads path in Opera's Preferences for my User's Downloads folder as follows:
    C:\Users\UserName\Downloads

    The blue Downloads folder inside the Favorites folder is exactly the same as the "real" one just above the Favorites folder.

    If I close Opera, delete the Downloads folder inside the Favorites folder, then reopen Opera, the Downloads folder is created again inside the Favorites folder. The create date/time for the Downloads folder inside the Favorites folder is when I opened Opera.

    So, there is a bug in this version.

    When I download something from the Internet, Opera tries to download it to my Documents folder. So, it is ignoring the path I set up and the new Downloads folder it created.

    Summary

    I am not sure if I will keep this portable browser. If there is one bug, there are probably others. I posted something to the PortableApps.com website forum and another help forum. So far, no answers.
