@sgunhouse So I will have to take the matter to facebook?
I used other browsers on another machine to test it and the autofill at facebook doesn't list those adresses, but another one I am not using for facebook. So I assume it may be information stored on that particular computer.
Is there a way to read out the actual information stored in cookies in opera?
Strange ,,, if I highlight text and then right-click on it, "Go to web address" is one of the options. Try it here:
(I used a code block to make sure the forum wouldn't make it into a link.)
@aazmath said in Opera portable user profile:
Now on a clean windows ( i have copied directory with opera to new hdd ) opera does not see any of my old data
Weird. That should have worked fine for you. I assume something went wrong with Sync and it messed things up. Is all your data at https://sync.opera.com/?
Can you test in Chrome, Chrome Canary, Chromium, Vivaldi, the latest snapshot of Vivaldi, and the latest Opera Developer?
Opera's change in behavior could be due to a change/bug in the underlying Chromium that's in the version of Chromium that Opera's currently using.
Also, if that's the case, searching the net for solutions for this issue in Chrome should help with Opera also.
If you had spent some time reading the forums, you probably would find you answer at https://forums.opera.com/post/137016
Programs Files/Opera is the installation directory, no user data is stored there in a typical installation. It's valid for (almost) all programs installed on Windows.
User data is usually stored at %appdata% directory.
In Opera, goto the URL opera://about to see where Opera is installed. Then, close down Opera and delete the install directory.
Then, download the Opera installer, launch it, click "options", set "install path" to "C:\Program Files\Opera", set "install for" to "All users", adjust the other checkboxes and install.
If you do it that way, Opera should then be available in Default Programs in Windows.
Thank you. The information there indicated it is Bitdefender interfering with the site with its own certificate. Switching off Bitdefender encrypted web scans fixed the problem. Unfortunately adding my site to exceptions and restarting the encrypted web scans should have fixed the problem but didn't. Bitdefender support are trying to ascertain why.
It's a browser. Basic stuff is the same as every other browser - type an address or click on a link; use the left-pointing arrow to go back to the previous page. There are lots of other things you can do, but none required to use a browser.
First you need to find out what would be the cause.
It may be that Opera is not being able to save the data. Or maybe a third party program is removing it.
Other changes are kept after Opera is closed?
Thanks as always, I think I can only keep on tracking Opera new versions and manually install them, as I'm not very comfortable using an outdated browser. I'll keep looking in my end for the reason, hopefully I'll find it.
I like this browser and I'll keep on using it even with this unusual discomfort.
Note: I'm here now without VPN !!
