Problem with saved passwords in Opera 62.0.3331.18 on Linux Mint 18.3

  • Hi! This morning when I opened Opera, the window opened and the background image loaded but none of the speed dial boxes/icons appeared, nor did the search bar appear. So, I closed Opera and re-opened it. Then, the speed dial appeared as it normally does. Then, I tried logging in to Hotmail to check email and found my stored password didn't work. Everything worked yesterday, so I know the stored password was good.

    After doing some investigation, I found all of my stored passwords are corrupt. They all start with "v11" and appear to have Unicode characters in them (I see a black diamond with a question mark in the middle).

    The usernames appear to be fine as are the URLs for each account.

    Any ideas on how my passwords could have gotten trashed like this?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Assuming that it is not a hardware failure, possibly the ram or the hdd, then opera's profile is probably corrupt. Backup your favorites, delete ~/.config/opera and start fresh.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll give that a try! 🙂
