[Solved]Opera is not saving data (or it's being removed)

I have the exact same problem you described. Mac Pro M1 (Ventura 13.2). It doesn't sync my passwords and logs me out everytime I quit Opera. Uninstalling, cleaning and re-installing does not work, Dev build does not work. On Windows 11 everything works perfect.
I have the same problem with Opera 95.0.4635.37 on W11 22H2 22621.1265
the few websites where I used auto login in Opera now keep requesting log-ins every time,
sync no longer works and when trying to access https://auth.opera.com I can't even log-in.
requesting a password reset does not result in an e-mail and trying to re-register the same username results in an error as the username is already taken.
funny thing is, using the very same account not working in Opera desktop still seems to work in Opera on Android so I suspect them having issues with their logon servers.

Hey. I'm using opera on a 2002 macbook air, and every time I close opera, it logs me out of every single website. Twitter, google, you name it. I've already disabled the "Clear cookies and site data when you quit Opera" option in settings, and it has not fixed the issue. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Thanks

Version: 95.0.4635.46 (arm64)
Opera is up to date
System:macOS Version 13.2.1 (Build 22D68) 13.2.1 arm64
Opera syncs bookmarks, but not passwords. When I sign on the sync page to use encryption, nothing happens. I have to sign into website, such as Gmail, each time I close Opera.

Same. 2021 Macbook Pro w/ M1 Max chip; ARM chips seem to be common. Latest stable version of Opera. Does not remember any logins, sessions get cleared after short period of time or when closing. Even Opera Sync.
Hoping devs or someone at least acknowledge or give some timeframe, with this number of reports for almost 3 weeks. Was looking to switch back after getting a new laptop but the browser is unusable with these issues.

The same problem, (macbook pro 15 2019) it seems that the opera comes in, but does not synchronize passwords. At the same time, there are bookmarks, but as soon as I close the browser, everything is reset. On windows/android everything works fine.

Yo, this is my first post, I've got this Mac Mini 2018 with Ventura 13.2.1, recently my system had to be reset, after fresh install I noticed that opera does not offer to save passwords, I thought it was something which I messed up during installation, some privacy settings or something, as this was a fresh install I decided to stop digging and re-install macOS yet again, this time I did not install anything apart from opera and yet I cannot sync, save passwords and what is most annoying it does not keep cookies, so with every-time I start the browser I have to sign in to facebook, gmail, eBay, amazon etc. as you can appreciate this is extremely annoying! I have no problems on my iMac (also with ventura 13.2.1) nor any of my windows machines, the only difference with this setup is that it is a fresh install pulled from the web... any suggestions?! just to add, I tried with being signed in to browser and not, I tried logged to icloud and not, no difference whatever I do

Mac Mini M1 and Macbook Air M1
Updated Latest Opera to version, issue is still present, the browser is essentially unusable, had to switch back to Chrome :_(

It's been 25 days since the issue was reported, surely the devs know about this by now. There was an update yesterday, still no fix, I would guess this should be high priority... as the browser, as good as it is, is broken and unusable.

Confirm the issue.
System:macOS Version 13.2.1 (Build 22D68) 13.2.1 arm64
Macbook Pro 14, M2 Pro chip
macOS Ventura 13.2.1 (22D68)
The "Allow all cookies" option is active. But every time when a browser is closed it loses all cookies for all sites.
I've tried different versions from https://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/desktop - the issue is the same. I even cleaned up the "/Users/<my_user>/Library/Application Support/com.operasoftware.Opera" every time before a new release installation. Also I set "defaults write com.operasoftware.Opera OPDisableAutoUpdate true" to prevent updates.
On my old Macbook Pro 13 (2017, on Intel chip, Ventura 13.2 (22D49)) Opera works fine.
I'm very upset since I use Opera as a primary browser last 15 years.

Topic is suggesting that the issue is valid to ARM systems only - but I can confirm that this is not true. I've got Intel (6700k) Ventura 13.2 'hackintosh' and the browser is unusable the same way.
It's sad, I'm loyal Opera user since 2001 on both Windows and Mac...

I've been having a lot of problems with Opera too, after I updated to Ventura.
The thing is, it's not Opera, it's macOS Ventura, it messed up the configuration for Opera now it's all messed up, I try to downgrade it and it didn't work so it's Ventura. Opera, or Apple need to find a fix
I recommend switching to chrome for a little bit of time until Apple on Opera fix this issue, I don't recommend switching to Safari because it's not really that good.
I also did some digging on the forms, all the cookie and password problems say that their operating system is macOS Ventura

I have 3 Macs and I have the same issue in 1 of them.
The one that has this issue where is not storing any passwords is a MacMini with M2Pro.
I tried to export the password from one of the working Macs and import to the one that is not working and doesn't work. I tried to add the password manually at the settings page and doesn't work either.
Is not an issue with the Apple Silicon since one of the working Macs is a MacBook Pro with M1Pro Opera updated to 96.0.4693.20 (arm64). The other working one is an Intel based MacMini.
Waiting for a swift solution from Opera...

I too have this issue, After the update Ventura my opera forgets most login sessions.
This seems to be an M1 issue as my intel mac is fine, by my works mac with an M1 chip has the issue.
Also this happens on a fresh install of the OS and Opera, a reinstall of Opera also doesnt help.
How ever Home assistant does its login session, that seems to keep logged in.
Bug report in with Opera
use the subject:
BS-50283 Opera on MacOS 13.2.1 forgets logins
