Every time I open Opera 28 my extensions are gone

  • This post is deleted!
  • Try checking if the problem happens with a new clean profile.

  • Make sure your user account has permission to write to the profile folder / settings file.

    Not sure how to do that but I know that I am the only "user" that has access to the laptop. Have only one profile.

    in ccleaner under pragramms opera uncheck internet history deleting these in any chrome engine browser with ccleaner destroy themes and addons

    Nothing is checked in CCleaner till I check it myself. Mainly because I use it often but not always for the same reason.

    I'll try a new profile I guess. goes away scratching his head

  • Still can't get it to work right. Maybe I should go back to Mozilla sigh

  • Have you tried with a new clean profile?

  • New profile? Don't know how to do that. Can't find anything about it in help either

  • Uninstalled it, then redownloaded Opera and got my extensions running. Closed it then restarted it. Same problem. Extensions are gone.
    SO frustrating!

    Go to menu > about Opera to see the path to the profile folder.

    After this, go there with Explorer and rename the folder.

    Have you checked the option to delete your data while uninstalling?

    It seems that Opera can't write in the folder or a third part program is erasing your data.

    Or maybe there's a corrupted file.

  • Well, I've tried everything that was suggested here and nothing has worked. So I just never close Opera. Hardly a good fix but a little less frustrating at any rate.
    Thanks for all your help
