The login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer.

    Just installed Opera 45 on this Ubuntu Mate 14.04.4 desktop reload in this multiboot system. I've run the old version 12 Opera on every linux and Windowz box I've ever had but v12 is no longer available from the Ubuntu software manager so I installed v45 this am.

    After my first boot up I tried to open Opera but get this "The login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer. Password ..../ cancel/ unlock" in a popup box and I've not been able to find a fix for this on Google searches I've done thus far. I can click "Cancel" and Opera opens and I can also put my login password in and it will open then also, BUT, I have Ubuntu set to NOT require a password after boot and I sure don't want Opera asking for one either!!

    So here I am on the Opera forum asking if someone can tell me how to fix/stop this?

    Thanks

    Opera uses your system's password storage facility to store saved passwords, but your system still requires your login password to access this password storage. Unless you'd rather install an extension which stores your passwords "in the cloud", nothing to do about it. (You really want anyone with physical access to your computer to have your logins for your bank, your email and social media, etc.?)

      I've been running Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) for a couple of years on my laptop. I only have Opera on Windows 7, where it's my default browser.

      I only have two browsers on Ubuntu: Firefox and Chrome. Firefox is the default browser on Ubuntu and when first opened the login keyring doesn't appear. However, it will with any other installed browser in my experience. I've set Chrome as my default browser and it still asks for the keyring password when first opened in a session.

      As far as I know this is just an Ubuntu bug.

        Nothing can be done about it??? You're kidding......right? FYI, I don't bank online, I don't do social media and I don't put anything in Email that I don't want the NSA looking at!

        Looks like this junk is coming off my system then.

        Oh, and while you're at it, go ahead and delete my account here!

        This is not an Opera problem.

        SGunHouse is telling that it's a security behavior to keep your passwords safe (at least in the first access after boot...)
        You can change your OS settings or even your OS if not agree...


        At the other hand,
        Save yourself and save us the bad vibes...
