extensions have suddenly disappeared!

  • So I have no earthly idea what in the world happened but all of a sudden, every single extension I had in Opera GX is gone!! It was completely fine yesterday. Honestly what I suspect may have happened if it is even possible that is, is that Windows did it and that would not surprise me in the least. Or maybe Windows firewall did it. I say this because I am a Windows Insider on the dev channel so I get new updates like weekly and yesterday there was an update that I installed and before that everything was fine so I suspect Windows per it's usual because it has done this with other software in the past honestly decided something was incompatible with it so it decided to remove stuff. Very annoying to say the least.

    So anyway, here is my PC specs.
    I have Windows 10 Pro build 21387
    My version of Opera GX is 75.0.3969.267

    So obviously my only recourse is to reinstall everything but just figured I would report this. I did not find any profile folder or file either and honestly it was not clear if there was supposed to be a folder with my profile or a file, nor was it clear on how to create a profile folder. Like am I supposed to name it what my username is or.... That needs to clarified, js. And I did not mess with flags. I do not have the ad blocker on and did not reset my settings to default because it is not like doing so will somehow magically make the extensions reappear.

  • @kermit7677 So you go to opera://extensions and none of your installed extensions are listed?
    In the Extensions folder in Opera's profile directory, do you still see the extensions?

  • @leocg Ya they were all gone and ya I checked the extensions folder and nada. I have since reinstalled everything so now stuff is there. Very frustrating.
