Opera 19: USB install is NOT portable

  • Opera 19 can not be used as portale browser on a USB stick (as Opera 12 has been :rip: ).

    It does not retrieve Passwords if the stick is used on other Windows account oder hardware.
    The password manager does not insert passwords and does not show any passwords in passwordmanager (Alt P => Privacy & security )

    Install Opera on USB stick on your PC (may be as Windows user test1)
    Start laucher.exe on stick
    Login on website
    let Opera store login
    Inspect passwords in passwordmanager
    Password is seen and can be inserted for login
    Goto your Notebook or PC
    login on another account (may be as Windows user opera2)
    insert stick
    start Opera with laucher.exe on stick
    Login on website
    Try to insert login
    Missing login and password
    Inspect passwords in passwordmanager
    Password and logins are missing

  • Saved passwords are attached to your OS login and can't be used/viewed on another computer or by another user.

  • Fine. Loosing a Windows account means: Loosing passwords.

    "Security" by Data Loss.

    That really means: i cant backup the profile, because it is bound to hardware and Windows account.
    Such a nonsense.

    That is a ugly Chromium related buggy idea!

    This is a serious issue with the new Opera. It looks like synch will be the only backup, and past experience with Opera Link tells me it's not something that anyone should rely on for secure backup.
