Opera WIll Not Remember Login/Password For This Site

  • Funny, eh??

    How is this possible??

    Newest Opera, Windows 7.

  • It remembers my login and password for this site.

  • It remembers my username and password, but we haven't changed it recently... what it does forget now is that I'm already logged in - which is a cookie issue.

  • It remembers my username and password, but we haven't changed it recently... what it does forget now is that I'm already logged in - which is a cookie issue.

    So, I also am logged in, haven't changed my username/password. I close Opera and next day I go to the Opera forums, and have to signin again.

    ?????

  • what it does forget now is that I'm already logged in

    Happens here too and not only in Opera.

  • I close Opera and next day I go to the Opera forums, and have to signin again.

    This is a different issue than the one you reported on this topic.

    Thanks leo, so....is there a way to resolve this?? For instance, when I go to one of the banks I use, and had originally logged in to, Opera asks me if I want to save this, I say "Save" - and then close Opera, open it the next day, go to that site, and Opera has remembered that login/password. Not so with Opera Forums.

    On a slightly different issue, what do we do with some Web pages that require a login and Opera NEVER asks if I want it to save that login??

    (Your yeoman work here is noted and appreciated)

  • .is there a way to resolve this??

    I couldn't find one. I guess Forum people will need to fix it, but I guess they won't since a new forum is coming.

    For instance, when I go to one of the banks I use, and had originally logged in to, Opera asks me if I want to save this, I say "Save" - and then close Opera, open it the next day, go to that site, and Opera has remembered that login/password. Not so with Opera Forums.

    OK, let's try to clarify things here. The problem is that you need to login every time you come here in the forums or the issue is that Opera is not saving your login and password?

    what do we do with some Web pages that require a login and Opera NEVER asks if I want it to save that login??

    I'm not sure if there is much to be done in this cases. Maybe check how Chrome and other Chromium based browsers behave and, if it doesn't work only in Opera, report the problem.

  • As far as the login problem with the forums, the issue is that although Opera HAS remembered my login/pw (if I sign in, Opera inserts the data) - but as often as not if I have not signed out, Opera still asks me to signin.

    Using O43 on Android, Opera asks me every time to login, never asks if I want to save PW

  • Using stable on Android, it remembers me. Using Developer on Windows, it does not. (I'm presuming stable on Android is still 42, but I'd have to check to be sure.)

    Ed. no, it's 43 now, but I guess my cookie hasn't expired yet.

  • Using stable on Android, it remembers me

    Using Chrome on Android I need to login almost every time I access the forums.

  • but as often as not if I have not signed out, Opera still asks me to signin.

    So it's most probably a forum issue.
