Passwords lost. Need fix.

    Hi, I'm on latest version of opera. Have been using since it first came out.

    I tried to sign in using my account and the opera discussion site had managed to delete my account under the gropera username - without sending me any notification.

    I know, because using the user and email and forget password, no reset email was sent to my account. So I have re-signed-up as the same account name.

    Thanks for that!

    Anyhow, opera starting a day ago now stopped filling in passwords, I have about 20 I use withoin each week and about 8 per day or more. It asks me if I want to save them, and then when I go to settings it tells me there are none. So, it has deleted all my passwords.

    Are they gone forever? Does anyone know how to fix this?

    I can edit files etc.

    OSX 10.11.1

    Even the resize corner on this edit field I am typing in does not work properly, it only resized horizontally. That's on operas site, using opera.

    So how are you using it?

    I know, because using the user and email and forget password, no reset email was sent to my account

    Does it have a valid email address associated to it?

    Did you check your spam folder?

    So I have re-signed-up as the same account name.

    The system does not allow doing that as far as I know. Once an account is created, jt stays forever.

    OSX 10.11.1

    Running on Windows? :-)

      Version: 47.0.2631.71 - Opera is up to date Update stream: Stable System: Mac OS X 10.11.1 64-bit

      I tried to sign in using my account and the opera discussion site had managed to delete my account under the gropera username - without sending me any notification.

      I have posted from the gropera account a few times. There is no record of those posts.

      I only use the forums when a new version breaks something enough that I can' fix it myself. So the last time would have been a cpl of years ago, maybe more.

      I have notes of login details... and i posted. Even google cannot find my old posts.

      Have the forums moved? I can't find any notice.

      No , OSX is a mac operating system.

      I logged and immediately created a post - on many sites it allows you to select the specific subforum after, never mind.
