  • Opera had become slow and wouldn't load some websites. When this happens with Firefox, there is a reset button under "Troubleshooting" that helps unclog the browser. Since I like Opera, but it has no such reset button (at least, none that I could find; search didn't produce any results, either in settings or in help), I decided to uninstall and reinstall with a fresh plate. Using IOBit Uninstaller, I decided not to do the deep clean (?) and left my info intact, so that when I reinstalled, all my setting were still there. This turned out well; it could have erased all my settings in the uninstall. I would still urge the Opera makers to add a "reset" button somewhere to that I don't have to go through the whole process every time it needs to be reset. By the way, the "clear browsing data" is only partially useful in this area. It really needs to have a way to start over again, but keep the settings. :sing:

  • You can rename/delete Opera's profile folder to "reset" Opera.
