Opera, passwords and gnome-keyring

  • I wanted to try the Opera browser on my debian linux, and I noticed that the version I have (39.0.2256.15) is using gnome-keyring in order to store web passwords. There's a possibility to create multiple keyrings and group those passwords. Is there a way to choose the name of the keyring that Opera will use? For instance, the default keyring's name is "Login". I want to create a keyring with the "Opera" name and place all web passwords there.

    I also wanted to ask about unlocking the keyring "on demand". The "Login" keyring will be opened during the login session automatically. I just wanted a separate keyring which would be opened by Opera only when some site shows login forms. I also wanted Opera to close the keyring after sometime, let's say 15-30 mins. Is that possible?

    The last thing I wanted to ask is how Opera handles passwords on different desktop environments, let's say KDE or even just window manager, like Openbox? Just pretend there's no gnome-keyring in the system. How will Opera store passwords then? Will it encrypt them somehow?
