Getting logged out from Twitter, etc

  • Hi!

    I use Opera 53.0.2907.57 on Ubuntu 16.04. Whenever I close the browser, it flushes some of my sessions so I have to log in every time I start the browser again.

    The problem always manifests itself with Twitter, but it often happens with other websites as well. It seems that Opera loses cookies way earlier than it supposed to.

    Does anyone know where Opera keeps cookies (in terms of the file system) so that I could check the location and investigate? Also, is there anyone else with the same problem? It looks like it started a couple of weeks ago.

  • OK, I figured it out. In case anyone else stumbles upon it, here is my solution.

    On the About page Opera says that it keeps profile data in /home/user/.config/opera. The Cookies file here is just a SQLite database file, so you can use tools like "DB Browser" to view data and write queries. I deleted everything Twitter-related using delete from cookies where host_key like '%twitter%' and now it doesn't log me out.

  • Excellent with Twitter helped 🙂
