History Page is broken: Old history not displayed

  • I confirm this problem with 62.0.3331.72.
    There are also problems on Downloads page - no way to remove downloads records, no way to open downloaded item or corresponding folder from there!

  • @lambdat75 Problem with downloads page should be discussed in another topic.

  • My history tab (ctrl + H) only shows limited records of history.
    But when I use the search history bar, very old histories pop up.
    Is that common to everyone?
    Here is the story:
    Today is July 21. The oldest history records (keep press "end" key) that can be fetched is July 16. It depends on my browsing volume also. The more I browsed, the shorter the timeframe will be. So I guess it has a max record output. But if I use the search history bar to search my history, some records in April come up.
    I like the interface and speed of Opera, but there are always small inconveniences keep it out of my default browser.
    Anyone can help?

    I think there was a similar report here the other day.

  • Hi, I have the same problem. It is very irritating when I have to make report from what I was doing in work for last week - browser history helps me if I did not write down on the spot what, when and for how long I was doing... 😕

  • @incomingbrowserchange
    Ever heard of the rule: "If it aint broke - don't fix it"? But then - what does it mean
    " I don't think it's very probable they'll revert those unwanted changes"?
    This is absolutely and without a doubt a severe bug! I am not complaining about a new layout here. I a complaining about the loss of a basic feature every browser offers, that is to access history back as long and far as the user chooses.
    It cannot possibly be a desired new "feature" to limit such access to about yesterday! (seemingly also dependent on the number of records).
    And if they really should ignore that, then opera itself is history - at least for me.
    To make things even more annoying a new "bad habit" seems to spread on the version-history-download-page. Instead of fixing things there now appear download-folders with phantasy-version-numbers that come up empty upon inspection so that the interval of "new", so called "stable releases" with the same old bugs has now been increased to about 2 weeks.😒

  • Today, I went to revisit a website and what appears to be a new format, is showing only today's visited sites. Yesterday's and older are empty.

    There has been no crash, which seems well documented.

    What's going on?


  • Opera history will only reveal around 1 day of history at a time.

    If I visit a new page, the bottommost link will be removed. Since Opera's limit on history is not time period, but an arbitrary total number of links, this would make one think that my total history is, for example 18 links (WTF).

    However, if I hold the page down key for a long time (2 minutes straight), it will eventually reveal one more day. One day at a time. Wow.

    How do I see my actual history?

  • @MrNero I can't view my opera history beyond just 7 days. how is hell does this even make any sense. It's call history for a reason, pls i would like you help out in anyway. I have downloaded history from opera path in opera folder but i can't open or view it. Pls help asap

  • Suddenly all my history has gone, and Opera only records history for one or two days. Until a few weeks ago it still worked. W7. Checked all my settings, nothing that could explain this.

  • I've been having this problem for the last few days and it's really, really annoying. Suddenly all my previous history is constantly overwritten and even clicking the "older" text still only shows today's history.

    I've now lost some semi important pages I needed and had forgotten to save to either speed dial or bookmarks because Opera no longer allows my to view older history.

  • @jaknet I just found out Opera deletes my history everytime I close it. When I close it suddenly asks if I want to close several tabs at the same time. It never asked before. Strange thing, for specific tasks I use Firefox. That browser I set to deleting history at closing, but not Opera, I even can't find a setting ordering to do so. It is indeed very annoying.

  • I cannot see my entire chronic. When I go to the chronic, it just shows me the last 24 hours. It used to be possible. Can I chane this somehow? I'd like some advice

  • History with correct time but wrong day, I mean, today is Tuesday but the history says Monday.

  • I am using opera browser for long time. I have noticed that, previous browsing history is being deleted automatically. What is the reason? Can anyone explain please? Thanks in advance. And can I get back the history that is deleted automatically?

  • If you are claiming that Opera keeps no history at all, that is not normal (though private windows forget history when closed). If you are expecting history from over a month ago, forget it - mine seems to have about 5 days. though it may depend on how many sites you visit a day.
