Cookie transfer

  • I started moving from my windows 8 install to a Pop OS (Linux) installation. The only problem that I currently have is that I 'm not able to transfer my cookies from my Opera browser (Windows) to my Linux system. I did a synchronization, that did fixed my passwords browsing history and some bookmarks (didn't do the first page that I see when I open Opera). I copied a 2 MB cookie file and a cookie.journal file from the roaming folder to the home/[User]/.../opera folder, didn't work. I tried to copy the entire [Opera Stable] folder, didn't work... I Googled and found an AddOn (I think its called EditThisCookie) but it doesn't cut it, it managed cookies per page and I kinda have A LOT of cookies here... I read some posts here on the forum from others trying the same stuff but it seems that the one that did it has no clue how he did it and it was a really old thread using the Opera 28 while I 'm with Opera 58. Any clues, anyone?

  • The sites most probably are detecting the those cookies were not set for that installation/device and creating new ones.

  • Dang it! DANG IT!!!
