Entries now take up two lines as well, which I don't want, either.
I'm happy with the two lines, because the second line contains a
snippet with the search string in context, giving you some idea of
whether it's what you are looking for. Can you imagine Google's
search results without the little snippet from the page? It would be
almost useless. I'd like to keep them.
This brings up something else: if my memory is correct, in 9.27 the
search dropdown was also significantly wider than the address field. At
least, I remember being able to see rather more of both the URL and the
title of the page on the one line.
In Opera 9.5, the dropdown is as big as the field it drops down from. This
is standard behavior for such widgets. What earlier Opera versions did
(the width depended on content IIAM) was useful in some cases, but looked
pretty ugly (like sticking out of the window). I understand people who
have a small address field because they put other fields and buttons on
the address bar will now be missing those wide dropdowns.
