[Solved] Can't reset saved passwords

  • basically I changed from Opera to Opera GX.
    On opera GX, I forgot my Opera account password so I reset it.
    now, if synching passwords is enabled, it asks me for my old password (which I don't know).
    Clicking to reset saved passwords does nothing, it just greys out the button but it doesn't reset it.

    I got all my passwords anyways by exporting from Opera and importing into Opera GX (CSV file).

    any way I can force a "reset saved passwords"?

  • @khidreal There's no such thing as reset saved passwords, you need to reset your synced data and start syncing again.

  • @leocg yes there is.
    When I logged in with my account I selected to import everything.
    then the user icon showed on the top banner on the right side with a yellow exclamation mark.
    Clicking it it said it was impossible to import passwords because the passwords were attached to an older account password and would show me 2 buttons: use old password or reset saved passwords.

    Clicking either would not work, buttons would Grey out but nothing would happen.

    Anyways, I did solve the issue like 30 minutes ago when I got back home, just backed up my passwords and bookmarks, reset everything and then imported it all back.
