@lifeblood2112 Pretty much, except it is a customized version. Without access to the popup panel, I can't really do anything. I have bookmarked the popup panel in the past, but I need it to initialize on the current page instead of just loading on a blank page.
I run a lot of custom code, custom extensions, etc.. I built a framework for websites within TamperMonkey so I can quickly add, change, etc.. features on websites with very little code. All of my stuff is geared towards productivity / efficiency. I have many which monitor progression and without being able to access that information - it makes it very difficult to be as efficient as possible with the little time I do have available.
I will try the sandbox test as soon as I can to see if it changes a file, or registry entry, or something... Or I could try unpinning a non-vital plugin or even just install random plugins which I'll uninstall later or use plugins I have disabled for this. I do have some sysinternals programs by Microsoft which can monitor every action handled by a program such as registry read / write, file io, etc... and I could find something that way too... but if it only saves or writes when the program closes then that makes it much more difficult to find. It does make more sense in terms of file management so you aren't constantly reading and writing.... so it depends on how well Chromium and Opera are written.
First thing will probably be checking the plugin folder just to see if some type of .unpinned blank file was added which would be easy to manage. It'd be best to have all of the monitoring software set up before I try something new, though.
