Opera not saving/restoring session properly
question last edited by
For about a week now, i have noticed that Opera is restoring an old session, rather than the latest one.
I have updated to the latest version which is 86.0.4363.23 as of the time of this post and restarted Opera several times, but the problem still persists, it does not save and restore to my latest session, it is always slightly out of date.
I noticed something interesting when checking my session folder in AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\Sessions.
The latest session file has a date modified timestamp which is up to date with my current time. But both tab files have date modified timestamps showing that they are roughly 2 hours out of date. Is this normal?
E.G. Let us say the latest session was saved at 6:40pm. The latest tab file was saved at 4:54pm, which is nearly 2 hours of date.
The older session was saved at 12:35pm, while the older tabs file was saved at 10:56 am.
This is on win 10 with Opera 86.0.4363.23, no extensions other than the opera ad blocker installed.

I have exactly the same problem. PC is Win 7 and Opera has been updated to v86.0.4363.23, but that made no difference. I then tried Recover Opera Settings Only and that reset the the saved tabs to that session. But the next day it did not update and is now frozen on the tabs of a week ago.
I tried the suggested fix disabling Opera Flags and re-starting, but that made no difference.
I have sent a bug report to Opera, but they say they do not acknowledge individual problems, so not sure where to go from here, as it is Very annoying.

My tabs keep resetting to a session a couple of days ago instead of the session I last had open. I figured out why this happened. In the opera files, there is a folder called Sessions and when I looked in there I found 4 files in which 2 pairs of duplicates for the tabs and session were found. I deleted both of them and went back into opera to create a new session with the same tabs I had earlier. When I went back to the sessions folder there was only 1 pair for the current session in my browser. I thought I had fixed it there but it duplicated about an hour or two later which messed up my tabs again by making 2 pairs of duplicates. Does anyone know how to fix this issue? I just want to have my tabs saved whenever get on my computer.
