This is spyware nobody should have to put up with. It's causing my fan to race since the most recent updates.

First of all, this should be removed permanently from fedora and never allowed back again.

Second of all, there are a bunch of posts on how to disable it but that isn't good enough. I want this $HIT OFF MY PC.

Yes, I am outraged. I do not want any crapware or spyware doing anything that I didn't request. I don't need indexing or searching, I could use Windows if I wanted to live that way.

Just STOP doing this.

2018-07-24 06:00:36 -0600 marked best answer opera icon missing after upgrade to f28

The icon for opera is missing from the app listing. It is replaced with a generic icon like rxvt.

Also, my speed dial is completely gone and so are my bookmarks. It might be related to the fontconfig issue I reported here https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/ques...

The speed dial items and bookmarks appear to be there because when I start typing in the url box it finds them, but they do not show, not in bookmarks, and not in the speed dial page. They both display as empty.

I have reinstalled and also removed and installed opera-stable and nothing changed. Opera-stable 54.0.2952.60 from the opera repo

Does anybody know how to fix it?
