version 24 is not stable

  • Hi
    i was happy with older versions of Opera .......... but the version 24 is not stable at all ...... it hangs a lot with lots of problems with flash player and shockwave player .............

    if developers will continue is their way ........... Opera will be step by step closer to Google chrome with its all instability problems

    another problem i mentioned in another thread in the past ......... the security ........ while it had to give a password to see "saved passwords " in setting section, now it is not present anymore ............. anyone can open my browser and see all my saved passwords .............

    thanks

  • I haven't had any problems with Version 24. It's fast, doesn't hang for me. No problems with Flash or Shockwave. I'm using Windows 7. What's is your Operating system?

  • anyone can open my browser and see all my saved passwords .............

    Well, the person would need to have physical access to your computer, know your OS username and password , know Opera and know how to see passwords in Opera.

    Even if someone could manage to access your computer while you were already logged in, s/he would need to know your os password to see your passwords in Opera.

  • first i am still using vista operating system ........ it is original one ....... so, i keep it instead of working with newer versions 7 or 8 that will not be genuine .............

    second ........... i do not mean remote access ....... i mean access to my saved passwords if i will leave my computer open to a friend or someone else .....

    if master password is not important ........ then why did they keep it in firefox or google chrome ........... and it was set already in older version of opera ........ but i do not know what is the harm in it in such that developer team had removed it

  • i mean access to my saved passwords if i will leave my computer open to a friend or someone else .....

    As i said, the person will need to know your OS password.

  • i mean access to my saved passwords if i will leave my computer open to a friend or someone else .....

    They will have access to your entire computer too, pictures, email, documents etc as well.

    So don't give them access to your computer in the first place, then you won't have to worry about them snooping through your stuff. Create a guest account in Windows Vista, and get friends and other people you let use your computer to use that. Problem solved.

  • as i said dear leocg, and linuxmint7 ............ i may accidently leave my computer open ..... or leave it open to a friend to make something on it ............ anyway ............ it is a serious defect in my eyes .............. sometimes it is hard to make someone use the guest account ........... i may need some changes to be done by a friend on some files i open them for him to be saved later on my account ........

    the simple question to ask yourself is ...... what is the harm in the presence of a master password that a user has to remember to have access to his other saved passwords !!!!

  • You leave your credit card/bank card where people can see it, and it gets used, whose fault is it, your banks, your cards or yours ?.

  • i may accidently leave my computer open ..... or leave it open to a friend to make something on it ............

    Have you ever tried to see a password in Opera? If so you may have noted that it asks for you OS password.

  • @mgali16, you probably don't have a password set for your OS/Windows. If you set a password for your account, Opera will ask for that password before showing your stored passwords.
