Clear complete browser history on quit

  • After having some troubles with various websites not opening in Opera anymore, I just upgraded to the latest version:

    Version: 19.0.1326.63 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows Vista 32-bit

    But I'm having troubles configuring to what I'm used to since .. ages. I want my complete history cleared when I quit the browser. I can clear the cookies, but I can't figure out where I can set the number of addresses Opera remembers (and for how long). Before I always set this to 0.

    Where do I find this option?

    P.S.: this feature is documented here: http://help.opera.com/Windows/10.20/en/history.html (Remember visited addresses for history and auto-completion)

  • Oh, by the way, I noticed the same thing on my Macbook a couple of months ago and opened a similar threat in the Mac section of this board:

    You didn't upgrade. You just moved to another browsers.
    Opera 15 and higher have nothing in common with Opera 12.xx, except their name.
    Opera 15 and higher are basically Google Chrome in a new proprietary shell.

  • Is it still safe to use 12.x?

  • Wow, just installed 12.16 on my Mac. This is perfect.

  • For a limited time security updates will be made so yes, it is still reasonably safe. But the older versions are increasingly incompatible with many websites (esp. popular ones) so you're likely to experience an increasing frustration level as sites will not load properly. I'm not sure why you feel the new version "sucks". Can you elaborate?

    For your information, I use Opera 19 (same version that you downloaded) and I love it. It's fast, it opens all the sites I visit, it is constantly being improved and all of my bookmarks are stored conveniently in the bookmarks' bar. 🙂

    he said it sucks because he can't figure out how to clear his history when closing the browser.

    profdrsherlock:
    i can't give the answer you want, but you can use an extension to clear the history. click and clean is fairly good. use the chrome app to access the chrome store and get it for opera there.

    use a private browsing tab - no history recorded from this tab.

    or use ccleaner once in a while. you can schedule it.

  • try History Eraser from Opera Add-ons.

    What an extraordinarily deferential response!

    Welcome to the forum of your fantasies, leushino!

  • Rather than attack the person, do you suppose you could try and stay on topic which is "Clear Complete Browser History on Quit?" Now that we're in the new forum, it would be nice if old animosities were left behind. In other words... try to be objective and keep the personal comments out of the discussion. Thanks.
