[Solved]Opera imported all of my bookmarks and even signed me into all of my accounts!

  • C'mon. Someone I know told me how awesome Opera is, and for the new year I decided to switch. Instead of getting a clean slate, I got all the old stuff! If I had wanted that then I would've stuck with Chrome. At least give me the option during installation to start anew.

    I can tell that Opera is incredible already but this is a horrible start. Now I have to delete hundreds of bookmarks and log out of dozens of accounts.

    Who in the world thought it was a good idea to do that? How is that even possible without even so much as getting permission! I'm furious with Google for allowing that to happen.

  • During the installation, Opera imports bookmarks and some other data from the default browser. To avoid it, click in 'options' in the screen that appears when you run the installer and uncheck that option.

    And to (re)start without the imported data, just rename/delete the profile folder.

  • How do I rename/delete the profile folder? Where do I find it?

  • Nevermind. I re-installed it to my programs directory. And I'll delete everything once again.

    I've wasted hours now. Thanks a lot for the terrible onboarding⸮
