Opera doesn't ask me for the certificate

  • Hi,

    i have a problem with a clean installation of Opera 19.0. I imported my certificate and if i go to one of the pages, that request a certificate, nothing happens. There's no pop-up to select a password. It's seems, as it would load the page until infinity. What could be the problem? I have a portable version of Opera on my USB Stick, and there are no such problems.

    Please help.

    Best regards,
    Miha (Slovenia)

  • Same problem. I have Opera stable 20.0.1387.64 on win7 pro 64-bit.

    Please help.



  • The password filling and saving is a known problem and is being looked into. Stay patient 🙂

  • Opera 23.0.1522.60
    Windows 7 64-bit

    Same problem with certificate. Nothing happens.
    Any idea what's wrong.


  • Latest Opera. Same problem..

  • Same problem with 23.0.1522.60, Win8 x64. I imported a client certificate in the Win8 certificate manager, and I can use the certificate without trouble in IE. With Opera, page keeps loading forever, as mickeyslo pointed. It's not a problem prompting the password (there is no need for asking the password after importing the certificate into the secure store), but managing the secure connection.

    I'm a little bit dissapointed with this kind of basic functionalities not working properly after all this time...

  • Update to 24.0.1558.53. Same problem. Nothing happens just loading forever.

  • Woooow to new Opera25 but the problem with certificate remained. Still patient.

  • "Sergey, hello.

    The fact that we do not support client-side certificates. But the problem has good priority and will be resolved in the near future."

  • This move from Presto to Chromium was not executed OK. Every new version that comes I hope this certificate issue will be solved just to be disappointed again. @OperaDevelopers Up to current release all releases should be done as BETA because client certificates is BASIC browser functionality without which a browser is useless. So make client certs top priority. I just hope it won't take you another 10 versions for this like it was with bookmarks.

  • So here we are nearly a year later and still no client certificate support? Are your developers actually try to build a decent usable browser as the rest seems all seem to have figured this out several years ago (yes I did check to make sure chrome actually has this working since you are using the same engine).

    do fix this or I will have to look at different browsers AGAIN but this is basic functionality and used more or less everyday.

  • Good news: it's finally here (I really had to bite my tongue when you posted this comment yesterday) 👼

  • Yeeeeaaaaaahhhh certificates finally works. Thank's a lot. Opera forever.
