This feature is now ALL FIXED. The only thing to remember about moving the "Add active tab" and "Bookmarks" submenu items to the top of the submenu is to
click RMB on "[All Bookmarks]" and select the "Show 'add active tab'" selector from context menu when you want to move the "Add active tab" button,
move the Bookmarks submenu item directly on top of the "[All Bookmarks]" menu item, directly, without any dividers in between (otherwise it will not move there properly).
Thanks to Pesala's image I was finally able to understand how to fix this feature according to what I was used to / needed.
@lonm It makes more sense to go to the home page than any of the child pages. If I had to choose, I would say the forum was the most appropriate for the Help menu, because this is the place to come to for help with using the browser.
This is just wrong. No option is required; "Exit full screen" should be removed from the menu.
It duplicates the command Fullscreen (F11)
It is mispelt
The shortcut F11 is not displayed.
(VB-48446) Exit full screen should not be on the context menu in Fullscreen
@nearbaskara In Opera 12.18, if one presses Esc to close a menu, focus returns automatically to the page, so yet, this is a bug. The menu bar is severely bugged in other ways, and is unusable without the mouse. For now, turn it off and learn to use the Button menu.
Instead of pressing Alt+F to open the File menu, press Alt, then F. Esc will close the menus and return focus to the page. If you press Alt again without opening a submenu, the menu will also close. It works much better, saves space, and needs only a slight adjustment in your habits.
@lonm Agreed. The bug is fixed, but there is a lot more work to do yet. Even if I remove the Ctrl+D shortcut for "Create Bookmark" it stills shows on the menu, but it does nothing.
I did notice that for other shortcuts, e.g. Find in Page, the one that is listed first is show in the menu so I thought it was fixed.
Ctrl+F Period Slash = Ctrl+F on the menu
Period Slash Ctrl+F = Period on the menu
I think discussing what should be on the default menu would only lead to fruitless debate. If the menus can be edited, that will avoid the need for any debate: Don't like it? Then edit it to suit yourself.
So should I propose that we stop having menus at all? Bunch it all up in one mega menu, and then each user defines its setup? That would be silly, right?
Anyway, your current argument is a good one - I don't agree, but it is a good argument. My main point about the previous argument was that it was too narrow, as removing an option from a menu is not the same as removing the feature.
@pesala Maybe this enthusiasm you have would be better spent in the thread for fully customizable menus? This feature request is about adding customizable stubs to the tops of only context menus, keeping the rest of the menus standardized.
I can't say whether the Vivaldi devs have chosen not to implement the full customization they obviously know was a feature back with Opera or whether they have merely chosen not to implement it yet, but I think I have explained adequately why I see full customization as less likely and suggest this feature as another option.
Please add a button for "bookmarks" on the address bar, which shows a drop down menu of our bookmarks like the horizontal menu. It is a good alternate option of accessing bookmarks, for users who prefer to hide the horizontal menu and the bookmarks bar to save screen space.
