    Can someone help? How do I delete a visual bookmark on my Storm? I really like the browser, but I can't seem to determine how to delete, change or even move a bookmark. Please help.

    Thank you in advance.

    I'm actually pretty excited about this because Opera Mini is almost the only 3rd-party app that I use, and they have usually been dreadfully silent about updates. I downloaded the beta just now but haven't tried it yet on my Storm. I've been beginning to become fed up with retyping my search queries on my Storm if it fails to connect. I'm eager to use a version with some more touchscreen support.

    I'm assuming youre referring to the "Speed Dial", if so, to edit or clear the thumbnail, hold your finger over it (touch it) for about 4 seconds and you will see a popup in the bottom right corner of the thumbnail (just outside it) that gives you the option of edit or clear (you can release your finger at this point) and then select which you would like to do. Hope this helps

    First finding: On the 9530 (5.0.0.190), hitting backspace in the search field deletes the entire field. Opera thinks I am holding down the backspace key.

    Menu hardware button brings up the mouse cursor. All menus are through the touchscreen. This means no copy/pasting addresses. (edit: just hold your finger down)

    I can't figure out how to get back to the address bar after I've touched the search bar.

    Good: All the pictures on a page load up. It doesn't have that awfully small limit for how much picture data it will download.

    Maybe this would be more compatible if I had a 4.7 OS installed.

    There is probably no way to exit if compatibility mode is enabled. Without compatibility mode, you can exit through the touchscreen menu.

    temp fix to this - if you go to settings and enable virtual keyboard (which is pretty nice anyway since it wont utilize suretype anyway) it will only delete one key at a time. Only reason I say this is temporary is because I hope they enable suretype and if they dont, the virtual keyboard has a little bit of lag, but is nice. Hope this helps

    Hit cancel at the very top right corner (in red)

    I am using this on the Blackberry Bold (Hybrid) and its working like a charm. This is exactly the way browsing was meant to be. I love the home page bookmarks, tabs, saving of passwords, and its speed. This will definitely the way we should be browsing.

    Trackball models: put the cursor over the any of the speed dial bookmarks, push and hold the trackball till you see the pop up asking to edit or delete.
    To paste use same process while typing till you see the option to copy or paste.

    Ps I got rid of it beacuse of the too many errors on my event log, those errors lead to random re boots.

    While it's about time Opera came out with an update, I am disappointed this is the end result.

    Speed times have decreased significantly IMO, no BB button for Storm users is somewhat odd, and it just seems as though there are more steps involved in daily operation than I care for. But what really is a bummer is the speed. My BB browser is quickers and renders pictures better than this.

    And as E pointed out, I am getting a ton of errors in my event log. Some may really like the version, I'm just not feeling it.

    It has a whole lot of lag for me. It is bad enough that some presses do not register. For me, with the regular keyboard, I hit a letter immediately after hitting backspace, and it interrupts the backspacing. (edit: I now use the virtual keyboard. I didn't realize when I wrote this that it is touch-only. I was clicking, which didn't work well.)

    I was happy for a moment when I saw that there was an "inline editing" option that I could turn off, because I thought it might bring up blank white screens to type in, like opera 4.2, so that I might be able to copy/paste. The option doesn't seem to do anything at all, unfortunately.

    Http is enabled by default, rather than Socket. To make a long story short, Socket is faster. Has anyone else had trouble after you chose Socket? I haven't had it long enough to be able to tell. (edit: Socket doesn't work at all)

    Don't worry J the useless function for the menu button is also for the trackball devices, about tabbed browsing is easy to navigate to the tabs using the BB browser than opera.

    Hopefully they will see the light and will come with a better version soon.
    If they don't is just a big FAIL

    So far I like the flick scrolling and the tab browsing, also like the speed and loading of the pages. Virtual keyboard is awsome with the ghost typing. But I'm having problems with cut and paste and navigating to the start page from a site and back button...It's beta but works with my 5.0(.140)

    the scrollbar on the right no longer responds to touch. this is so bad because i like to drag it around. this makes it require more effort to reach the bottom of the page. it capitalizes passwords.... i have no way of hitting return in this text box right now.

    Copying and pasting work, just not well. Try this: Tap the address bar so that it highlights the url. Now touch the highlighted area and leave your finger on it for a second. A little black menu should pop up offering copy or cut. Once you copy something, you can click into a blank address bar, touch it for a second, and it will bring up the black box with a paste option. It took me a little while to discover this. I found out touching and holding worked after I tried it on the speed dial page to get rid of the 3 default shortcuts.
