Opera v65.0.3467.78 Update reset Speed Dials

  • @burnout426 said in Opera v65.0.3467.78 Update reset Speed Dials:

    Also, you might want to check your hard drive with CrystalDiskInfo to make sure it's not going bad.

    You also might want to check your system for malware and viruses etc. If something tampered with Opera's files, it could cause Opera to not use them and reset them.

    HD Sentinel states 100%

    Malwarebytes all OK

  • Okay. Just like when it happens to other users, nothing stands out as the trigger to the problem. Probably best to move on and hope it doesn't happen again.

    Is there a problem with update to v65.0.3467.78 ?
    Why did these problems occur?
    Is there an underlying problem ?

  • @dobrien Don't know, sorry.

  • @dobrien I guess Opera or the installer/autoupdater fails to find some file and/or directory and creates a new one, so previous settings are lost.

  • It's just happened again

    Opera updated to Version:66.0.3515.27.

    Speed Dial Reset.
    Have to redo again

    This is getting dam tiresome
    Extensions gone walkabout again

    Every update seems to reset everything.......................

    I'm getting peed off with this.
    I may go back to Firefox

  • Sounds like you might have to a do a full cleaning of Opera and reinstall.

    • Goto the URL opera://bookmarks and use the drop-down at the bottom to export your bookmarks. If you need to save your opened tabs, right-click on a tab and choose "Save all tabs to a speed dial folder" first. Then, you'll be able to right-click the folder and choose "open all" after you import your bookmarks back in.

    • Goto the URL opera://settings/passwords. Click on the kebab menu (3 vertical dots) to the right of "saved passwords" and export your passwords to a CSV file.

    • Uninstall Opera via Programs and Features in the control panel. Choose not to keep your data.

    • In Windows Explorer, delete "C:\Program Files\Opera" if it's still there. Do the same for "C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera" and "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Programs\Opera".

    • Delete every file and folder in "C:\Windows\temp". Do the same for "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\temp".

    • Delete "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software" and "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Opera Software".

    • Open the Windows Task Scheduler and delete any Opera scheduled tasks (they'd be for the updater).

    • Open regedit and delete the following keys (if present):

      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Opera Software

      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\OperaStable

      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\OperaStable

      • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\OperaStable

      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\OperaStable

      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Clients\StartMenuInternet\OperaStable

    • In Regedit, delete these items (in right-hand pane):

      • The "Opera Stable" string in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RegisteredApplications

      • The "Opera Stable" string in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\RegisteredApplications

    • Download http://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera/desktop/66.0.3515.27/win/Opera_66.0.3515.27_Setup_x64.exe (you can use IE to download it), launch it, click "options", set "install path" to "C:\Program Files\Opera", set "install for" to "all users", uncheck "import data from default browser", adjust the other options the way you want and install.

    • Now that Opera is installed, goto the URL opera://bookmarks and import your bookmarks from the file you exported. Then, close Opera.

    • Open a command prompt and run this commnand:

      "C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" --enable-features=PasswordImport

    • When Opera starts, goto the URL opera://settings/passwords, click the kebab menu to the right of "saved passwords" and import the CSV file you previously exported.

    That all will ensure that everything with Opera is set up correctly. You can then reinstall any extensions you want and reconfigure any Opera settings you want.

    If Opera resets your settings again after a new update, it's mostly likely something outside of Opera interfering with Opera. Either way though, feel free to switch to a different browser then.

    Thanks for the detailed reply.
    I have carried out all your instructions,
    All seem good at the moment.
    I will wait for next update.

  • Hi,

    Opera has updated a few times since problems arose.
    It is now at v66.0.3515.44.

    All is well, bookmarks, extensions, & speed dial all intact.
    Am sticking with Opera, I did not want to move to another browser.

    Many thanks for our help.
