How to stay logged in to accounts?

  • I am using Opera Developer for Mac. I actually didn't know the Developer version existed until today. I am liking it so far, but one thing. When I log in to accounts like Google or Facebook, I get logged out each time I close Opera. I don't necessarily want the system to remember my passwords but I would like to stay logged in for at least a month. I was looking in the Preferences but I can't find the option.

    On another note, I do like the look of Opera Developer. I missed having contrast on the title bar and just a few other simple things. So far, so good.

  • I was looking in the Preferences but I can't find the option.

    This is a site's option that usually appears as a 'remember me' option in the login page. Some don't have such option but will remember you for a while if you don't logout.

    For such option to work you need to have cookies enabled.

  • Thank you for your feedback. I think there might be a bug. Looking at my preferences, I see that I do have the first option in the Cookies section checked off. If it were the second, then this would make sense.

    Well, it works for me and as far as I know to almost all users, so I don't think it's a bug.

    Try cleaning cookies and cache.

    Also, if you are using extensions, try with them disabled.

    And check if there isn't any software that may be cleaning your cookies.

  • I installed it just yesterday, but I cleared the cookies and cache anyway. After that, I logged in to an account saying to remember password, and then I closed the browser. When I reopened it, I was logged out again.

    Leocg, do the most users who do not face this issue use Opera or Opera Developer? I used the regular Opera previously, and I never faced this issue either, but it's happening in Developer.

    Zalex108, yes, as I mentioned in the post above, I unfortunately already tried that.

  • When I reopened it, I was logged out again.

    It seems that Opera is not being able to save its data in the profile folder. If you do a portable/standalone installtion, do you see the same issue?

  • I'm a bit lost. What do you mean by portable/standalone installation, and how would that differ from a regular installation? I downloaded and installed Opera Developer here. http://www.opera.com/computer/beta (The second link)

  • What do you mean by portable/standalone installation, and how would that differ from a regular installation?

    OK, i missed the fact that you are on Mac. Don't know if Opera for Mac has such option on its installer.

    Anyway, maybe you can try with a clean profile.

  • By profile, do you mean an account to log in? I will try that and let you know what happens.

  • No luck. I logged in to the browser and then signed into an account. When I closed the browser and reopened it, I got logged out of my browser as well. I'm probably better off using the regular Opera version for Mac. I hate to say it, but I have run into two other issues as well, so it sounds like there are things that need to be addressed with Developer for Mac.

    1. This dialogue shows up constantly with nothing to trigger it.

    2. Entering a new tab from Google Shopping causes the browser to crash.

    Nope, I mean to create a new profile folder (or whatever it's called on Mac).

    Well, they are subject for another topics.

    I see now. I'm afraid I'm not sure how to do that. I am still fairly new to Mac. I am searching in Macintosh HD > System > Library. From there, I do not see a folder of profiles or Opera. After exploring online, I understand that Mac doesn't actually have a program directory visible to the user. A code has to be typed in the Terminal, and I don't know the code.

    [quote] What do you mean by 'logged in to the browser'? [/quote]

    I mean the actual log in built in to Opera for synchronization throughout all devices, but you were talking about something else.

    Understood.

  • And I apologize for the mess. I'm not sure how to make multiple quotes.

  • If you change any settings on Opera, is it kept after you close Opera?

    It seems that Opera is not being able to save data on profile folder/directory.

    From there, I do not see a folder of profiles or Opera

    See Opera's Menu > About Opera. There you will find the path to Opera's profile.

  • Yes, the settings are kept after I close opera.

    Thank you for the heads up. I think I may have found the problem. It looks like I'm missing an entire Library folder. Comparing the directory on the About Opera page and my Finder window next to each other in this screenshot, I don't seem to have a Library folder for Users. http://sta.sh/028krlznxmhb I thought there was only one in Macintosh HD and one in System, but according to Opera, it seems there is a third in Users that I don't have.

  • I don't seem to have a Library folder for Users

    Maybe it's hidden?

  • Just read this discussion, there are the keys to make a clean Opera profile on Mac OS.

  • I followed your link, Zalex, and I read through the discussion, but I can't figure out how to unhide the files. I see there are several codes to type in to the Terminal, but none of them seemed to work.

    I also went into the Go menu of Finder, selected Go To Folder, and I typed the directory of the Opera profile exactly as it's written on the About page of Opera, but I was just taken to my User folder.

    Xgipper talks about an app to do it easly ShowHiddenFiles
