How to synchronize passwords from Opera 12 to Opera Next?

  • How to do that? I am trying to immigrate from Opera 12 to Opera Next.

  • Start Opera Next with the follwoing commandline in DOS-Box (i hope this works)

    "%PROGRAMDIR%\Opera Next\launcher" --presto-master-password=YourMaSterP4ss --presto-small-prefs-dir="%APPDATA%\Opera\Opera"

    If you had no Masterpassword you can ommit --presto-master-password=YourMaSterP4ss

  • By "Next", perk-one (like lots of people) probably meant Chromium-based Opera, not beta channel 😉

  • Start Opera Next with the follwoing commandline in DOS-Box (i hope this works)
    "%PROGRAMDIR%\Opera Next\launcher" --presto-master-password=YourMaSterP4ss --presto-small-prefs-dir="%APPDATA%\Opera\Opera"
    If you had no Masterpassword you can ommit --presto-master-password=YourMaSterP4ss

    Synchronize doesn't work? Does someone try this or you just guess it? I do not have master password on Opera 12.

    By "Next", perk-one (like lots of people) probably meant Chromium-based Opera, not beta channel 😉

    I did not get it.

    Yeap, that's what I said O:) xD

  • And no, Link isn't part of the new versions so you can't sync your old and new Opera installs atm.

    No. Opera Link is broken.

    Save your old Opera Profile and install Opera 23, all settrings should be copied. Dont hit me if i does not work, blame Opera ASA for this procedure.

    Sorry i miswrote my hint for importing passwords. Please forgive my fault. 😉

    This works fine with importing password on my Windows 7 (just testet minutes before) in DOS box:

    "%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\Opera\launcher" --presto-small-prefs-dir="%APPDATA%\Opera\Opera"
