The new "Show Password" dialogue

  • Can we at least get it acknowledged?

    You probably won't see such thing here.

    Do you need more data about the bug?

    It's a Chromium issue so Google needs to fix it.

    Alright so I went hunting for the bug on the web. There is a solution for this issue, what you need to do is run Opera with the "--disable-features=CredUIPromptForWindowsCredentials" flag, and it will return to the old behavior.

    Now you will only be asked for your Windows password, and it's back to normal. Hope it helps others that might be stuc kin the same position I was.

    When you say "will only be asked for your Windows password," are you talking about the password that lets you logon to Windows itself?? If so, what if you don't have a Windows logon at all, like me??

  • Then it shouldn't ask for one, just like before.

  • As things have changed again, I thought I would drop and give an update.

    • the --disable-features=CredUIPromptForWindowsCredentials" flag stopped working for me, sadly
    • the new and "improved" dialogue shows now and all options work for me (if I enter my Microsoft account email as "user name", not the actual user name, including PIN
    • this dialogue box always has more steps t ogo through compared to the old method

    Anyway, happy it's fixed.

  • I have the same problem, opera not accepting my windows user/password to access saved passwords

  • i can confirm the same issue!

  • Even i Have the Same Issue, What the hell is opera doing without solving this ??

    Actually it's a Chromium's engine problem, Opera depends on them, so have to wait for them to fix it - don't know if Opera could do something to fix it by its side -.

    What way did you do it?

  • I've been having this issue also and just tried something different. I thought it wanted my Microsoft Hotmail login information so I kept using my email address as the username which kept giving me an error. Have been doing this for several months now. But after reading this thread, I decided to try something different. While my Microsoft account is linked to my computer, when I boot up, that is not what is displayed when I log into my computer. What is displayed is my name, "Eric Mercer" (without the quotes obviously). So I decided to try that as the username and then my password. That worked for me. I hope that it will work for others as well.

  • I just updated to vers. 50.0.2762.45 as of 10 Jan 18. Works A-ok. Was getting the same issue: nothing would allow me to access passwords. So things are 5x5 w this user. Hope this helps. Advise getting the new version... John...
