Passwords gone, new ones not saved

  • This started happening some time ago, but I had some free time today to explore it. Opera 67, Mac OS 10.14 (Mojave). Problem is described in the topic title. Maybe it's just one manifestation of more widespread problems, as the following may suggest:

    I tried running Opera from Terminal ($ /Applications/ and got several lines saying (among some other warnings and errors):

    dyld: warning, LC_RPATH @loader_path/../../../../../../../../../.. in /Applications/ Framework.framework/Versions/67.0.3575.79/Helpers/Opera Helper being ignored in restricted program because of @loader_path

    I deleted the Opera application, installed a new copy, and got the same warning lines. I closed Opera, added it again to the access list in the Mac keychain for Opera Safe Storage -- no change. Closed Opera, deleted Opera Safe Storage -- no change.

    Highly irritating. In Opera's (or Opera's implementation of Chromium's) quest for better security, I'm forced to write down my passwords!

  • @rucio I'm pretty sure it's part of a larger ongoing issue. Synchronization's been horribly broken the last two updates, unfortunately. Whether a fix is in sight or not is uknown.

  • @linkinpark187 — I notice you used the word synchronization. Does Opera require signing up for that service to save passwords at all? (Although you also suggest it doesn't work anyway)

  • @rucio, It doesn't, however I use Opera/GX across multiple devices and need synchronization in order to save my bookmarks on those devices.

  • I have switched to Vivaldi. It works. Vivaldi also has some really nice extra features. Very happy with it.

  • I had a glitch today on Win 10, for some reason a few of my saved passwords for sites on my speed dial were missing.
    Fortunately I had imported all my pw to a spreadsheet just in case.
    I have a feeling that a Malwarebytes scan may well have been the culprit.
