Problems with saved passwords in Opera 63.0.3368.107

  • Re: Problem with saved passwords in Opera 62.0.3331.18 on Linux Mint 18.3

    So, after reporting the issue with Opera 62.0.3331.18, I've learned this password corruption issue tends to happen with some Opera upgrades. For example, I'll re-enter a previously corrupt password and everything will be fine. Then, Linux Mint will inform me of an Opera update. I'll install the update and then discover I can't login to various sites, even after having previously entered a corrected password for a password that got corrupted before.

    Is anyone else having issues with Opera updates causing password corruption?

    Thanks in advance!


  • Didn't ready anything similar.

    I would suggest to:

    • BackUp all profiles [despite they are Sync']
    • Reset Sync
    • Unify all passwords file in just One:
      • [Import Passwords - At Opera://Flags]
    • Export all 3
    • Rename them
    • Check them
    • Merge them with Libre Office or any other
    • Import the new PassList
    • Sync again


    • Keep a copy of the fixed file

    Follow the Signature's BackUp | Reset link.
    Take the opportunity to make a Template Profile and organize a backup plan.

    SyncBack / Synkron would help - Win -.

    Windows 7 (x64)
    Opera Test profile | Opera Back up | Reset

  • @zalex108 Thanks for the information. Is "Sync" something that's enabled by default? If not, I'm not using "Sync" at all. I made a backup of my profile, saved only TWO passwords, that I entered manually, and neither password had been retained. So, I closed Opera and re-opened it and then the saved passwords were available. I also noticed Opera had been upgraded to version 64.0.3417.47. Weird.

    I'll come up with 'plan B'. Thanks again for your help!


  • Hi,
    It seems I wrote that on the wrong topic. 🙄

    A week ago, there was a user having problems with his Passwords as well, about HTTP saved passwords and logins on HTTPS sites.

    He ended up editing the Passwords and converting all of them to HTTPS.

    I don't know what could be your Passwords problem, but if the problem persist:

    • Take an error message screenshot
    • Check out your accessing URLs
    • Annotate them
    • Try to view and edit your Passwords, take out HTTP/HTTPS:// from the URL, - they should still recognize any form of URL -, test what happens - check out linked post - .
    • Upload the taken info


    • Back up your Passwords/Profile frequently
    • Use a Password Manager - Keepass / Keeweb -

    About Sync,
    Is not enabled by default, look at the OMenu to enable it and know about.

    Same problem here.
    As you: "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)."
    I have Linux Mint too.
    I don't know when It happened cause I used to autologin, generally, and the first time I had to re-login I found any passwords were corrupted and lost.
    Well it's an understatement if I say it's a rather unpleasant thing...
    I suppose a few files should be untouchable IMHO
    By the way I have Opera browser sync on W10 and now I have error trying to sync browsers.
    But yes I recovered passwords from Opera Browser on W10. 😅
    Have a nice day 🙂
