Password manager got bad =>> an Opera Next v20.0.1387.24 problem

  • Hello all you happy people :D!

    Today I wanted to log in to my usual shop to buy myself some goodies, when suddenly my password was not being accepted (the password used was automatically filled by password manager filling).

    Thinking that something is wrong, I entered the password manager, entered the account's name and hit "show" button to see how it should be. Nothing happened. Mashing the button did not help anyway I'm afraid. Good thing I still had the older version of Opera, so I just opened it and got the password from there, which worked perfectly.

    I'm not sure what happened, some of the passwords autofilled are not correct, and none of them can be shown to me using "show" button in the pass manager. What gives?

    Hope you guys crunch this problem.

    Kind regards,
    DonCapo

    Thanks, that worked. Funny enought, shouldn't this also turn on some sort of password question before showing me the passwords?

    Anyway, thanks again.

    I think you have a point there. Probably worth submitting a bug report for the devs to consider it, or post in the Blogs.
