How to stay logged in to accounts?

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • Thank you for everyone's feedback, but I'd rather not change anything in my system's directory since I really don't know what I'm doing. I think it's better if I use the regular version of Opera since the account login works and since it is more compatible. I see from that topic that others had that issue as well, so I don't want to do anything that might cause damage. I am sorry to end it here, but I appreciate everyone's assistance.

  • Well, it's very easy but the decision it's up to you. :sherlock:

  • And I appreciate it. Honestly. It's just that I've dealt with a series of problems on Windows computers in the past (not related to Opera). Now that I have a really good Mac, I just want to be extra careful and not change any settings around.
