  • Every time I restart Opera all of my extensions, website settings (cookies), zoom levels, browsing history and fast dial bookmarks have reset/disappeared. I'm running Windows 7 (64 bit) with Opera 27.0.1689.76.

    Any help is appreciated.

  • Where did you install it, and which option did you choose? Sounds like your profile is in a place you are not allowed access to. See About Opera to tell where your profile is.

  • These are the paths listed on the About Opera page.

    • Install: C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera
    • Profile: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable
    • Cache: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable

    Not sure which "option" you're referring to. I should mention that this problem occurred very recently, after I've had Opera installed for years. I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling in an attempt to fix the issue, without any luck.

    Thanks for taking your time to help!

  • Not sure which "option" you're referring to.

    Probably the installation options: all users, current user or standalone. Based on the location of the profile folder, standalone doesn't seem to be the case.

    Do you have admin rights? Any program that may be clearing the files?
