Opera doesn't store my Facebook login password

  • I am using Opera 44.0 on Windows 7 Pro 32 bit.

    Opera stores the passwords of the sites I log to (and agree for it to store the password). However, when I connect to Facebook, it doesn't prompt for a stored password.

    I have checked the setups: Opera doesn't list Facebook as a site for which never to store the password (I tested refusing storing a password for another site, it is now listed as such, and it is the only one), nor does it show having a password stored for FB.

    Any idea as to what to do?

    Thanks.

    So when you go to Facebook, Opera doesn't fill in the login and password fields?

    Is your login and password listed in the passwords manager?

  • It fills in the login field, but does not fill in the password field.
    No, Facebook is NOT listed in either section of the passwords manager.

  • This also happens (at least) for another site to which I connected a few minutes ago, and for which I had noted that Opera had recorded its password: it doesn't, the site is not listed, and Opera doesn't prompt recording the password.

  • CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER, as said Alice.

    I connected for the 4th or 5th time to FB this morning. A couple of minutes after I had connected, it prompted me to save the password, I accepted, and it did (I checked by logging out, closing the page, reopening it, and lo and behold!, it was now filling both fields correctly).

    So I am quite at a loss to understand why it didn't do it for days, and why it suddenly did it now. No, I haven't changed anything in my OS or browser's configurations.
