HIstory date is incorrect

  • This weekend, the Opera changed it's timezone from GMT-3 to GMT-2 for users in Brazil.
    I believe it happened because we were supposed to be in daylight saving time, but this year it was decided that we wouldn't change our clocks.
    So now our browsers are showing the wrong time on history and console. Is there any way to manually change the browser timezone? Or do we need to wait for an update?

  • @lbertone Check this topic.

  • In recent months I've found that the contents of my browsing history list is incomplete, and/or that the dating---grouping of search records by date---is incorrectly grouped. That is, a small number of today's search URLs appears under today's date, and the remainder of them are listed under yesterday's date, or even further back.

    After the latest update, only the last hour's searches are dated correctly; all previous ones appear under older dates (days). My initial impression was that some or much of the history is missing.

    Anybody else experiencing this glitch ?

  • @StephenRitchings About history time being incorrect, read this topic.

    Regarding missing history entries, it was already fixed:

    I'm afraid that didn't fix it. I have the latest version (64.0.3417.92) and I still have this problem. By the way, the history records were never "incomplete", just grouped under the wrong day, so it seems a different issue here.

    That should be DNA-79195. Not fixed yet. Seems to be a UTC vs. local time mix-up.

  • got the same problem as post before mentioned about today sunday but in history is saturday...

    has the developer been neglecting opera big time??

  • A day of his is out of order the opera browser , I settled it on new one but it did not help!

  • @hisnibs I was just about to report the same problem. Scrolling through the last week of my history, I can see that the date changes from "yesterday" to "today" at 4 pm instead of midnight. That is, it's firing 16 hours too late instead of 8 hours too soon. I suspect the date rollover is hard-coded to Greenwich Mean Time, because I'm eight hours west, in California. I doubt that there is currently a fix for this, and hopefully a future version of Opera will allow us to set a local time zone.

    Assuming you use the search box to reduce the number of history links displayed, the incorrect date probably won't prevent you from finding that interesting article you started reading last Tuesday.

  • Months go by and the issue persists! I'm kind of used to this already but I cannot believe this could be something so hard to fix...

    Today is Wed 13th:
    Today is Wed 13th

    Crossing midnight, Opera thinks it's still the same day:
    Day change at 9PM

    Day change at 9PM (I'm at GMT-3, so it's changing at UTC, as usual). And BTW, yesterday was Tue 12th.
    Yesterday was Tue 12th
    All records from this last screenshot belong to Tue 12th, and not Monday 11th.

    So basically, the history is only correct between 9PM and midnight.
