Extension icons missing in Private mode

  • Hi,

    I use Opera developer version ,,39.0.2234.0". I start Opera by right-clicking on Opera's icon in Windows 10 taskbar and I select Private mode from there. After Opera has started into private mode, all the installed extension icons are missing from their default location. When I open Opera in usual mode or when I switch from Private mode to Usual mode, then all extension icons appear in usual mode. Example: One extension I use is Lastpass. After right-clicking on a web page, Lastpass extension functions can be used as usual from popped-up menu. But Lastpass extension icon does not appear in Extensions icons default location.

    Why straightly starting to Private mode and from usual mode to private mode, all the extension icons disappear, thought their functions work as usual?

  • at first you click menu then choose extension > manage extension>tick >allow in private mode; 😃

  • I have allowed them in private mode already but extension icons still do not appear when I open Opera directly in Private mode.

  • A kinda old known issue.

    Any ideas how to fix it?

    There is no way to fix it AFAIK, besides opening Opera with a normal window and then open a private one.
