  • I am using 74.0.3911.160 on a Win7Pro PC.
    I think this problem has been happening since version 62 but I haven't been able to post until now - I was hoping this problem would go away with an update.
    The browser will only keep 1 previous day of history. Older than that is gone.
    Yes, I have Iobit ASC Pro but I have had AutoClean and AutoCare turned off for a couple of weeks. No change.
    Before that, I removed all Opera cleanup. No luv there either.

    To save things for my usage, I have to use a separate tab for each search; leave all tabs used open until I'm finished surfing; and then use Session Buddy to save all of those open tabs.

    I saw where this has been a problem since 2018!
    Please help

  • Does it happen in a standalone instalation also? If so, temporarily create a new user account on Windows, log into it, make a standalone installation of Opera on that account and test it. Does it work fine on that account? You'll have to test the standalone on that account for a day or 2. But, don't import anything into it and don't enable Opera Sync.

    Do you have a password set for your user account on Windows?

  • @burnout426 - I apologize for taking so long to get back to you. I did the standalone installation that you suggested. Great Idea.
    Now I'll start using this setup to test and see what happens, or if it works all right.
    Yes, I have a password on my Windows User Account. Why do you ask?

    Chromium-based browsers encrypt your login data based on a lot of things including your user account password. See this post for details. Chromium-based browsers also protect some other data from modification, with hashes that may also be based on some things including your user account password. I not sure about the specifics with history, and not sure about what happens when there's no password set for the user account, so I was asking if you had a user account password just to rule out one not being set as an issue.

  • Ohhhh, OK. That's new info....
    I Do have a sync account on the original Opera install I've been running. As you suggested, the new install has nothing except the included Opera ad-blocker extension.

    Thanks for getting back to me again. By Friday I should know if this bare-bones install has the same problem or not.
    I'll let you know what happens (fingers crossed) - quicker than my first reply.🤦🏼♂

  • @burnout426 - Update from 3/26 - The new "virgin" Opera installation seems to be keeping All of the history!
    So, what to do at this point? Add in extensions 1-by-1 and see if any of them break history?
    Or do you have another suggestion?
    Thank you!

  • @kailasa108 Checking if an extension is the cause of the issue would be interesting.

    Yes.

    If that doesn't lead to breakage though, test if Opera Sync causes the problem would be next.

  • @burnout426 - Thanks much! I'll try to get to this over the weekend....

  • @burnout426 - Well, I'm laughing and scratching my head. When I rebooted my machine today, I only had one shortcut to Opera, instead of the two I had yesterday. Grimacing, I clicked on the one shortcut, and it opened - it was the old profile, with all the extensions I use and Sync is running.
    Just to check, I looked at History, and was I shocked! It's all there!! Not only the dates I had used on the new profile, but history going back to February!! So, it seems no history was actually missing at all - it just wouldn't show before.
    Sooooo, I don't know what happened, but it looks like Opera fixed itself!

    Thanks again for your help - you got the 'ball rolling'!
