Default Opera 12 versus Opera 22

I'm running Opera 12.x. When it checks for updates, it never suggests upgrading to Opera 22. My reason for installing Opera 12 on my new computer was ease of setup. Meaning, I could just copy of appdata from the other computer, and it would be set up as a like it. And this has been important to me, because I can no longer figure out how to set up the sidebar as I like it from scratch.

But now Opera 12 is having font display issues. And a fix has not come along. So I'm looking at the possibility of Opera 12. Maybe try to install it in a different folder. Have any of you dealt with this issue?

I run 2 versions of Firefox so my guess is that you could run 2 versions of Opera. With Firefox, I had to play with the profile name and the desktop shortcuts so that they don't interfere with each other.

I laid out the steps for multiple versions of Firefox in a post to Franca in the "Mulitple versions of Firefox..." thread--it reads more complicated than it is to do--so you might browse through that and then check on the Opera side to see if Opera has similar command line tweaks...
