Delete Opera's program files folder (manually or uninstall while choosing to keep your data). Goto https://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera/desktop/ and download an older version that you think doesn't have the problem and install that. When Opera starts, immediately close it and immediately open the task manager and kill the Opera autoupdate process if it had a chance to load. Then, in Opera's program files folder under the version folder, rename opera_autoupdate.exe so Opera doesn't update on you.
See if you find a version where your extensions still show. You might have to keep replace Opera's profile folder with a copy of your backup if things don't show back up right away.
Once you get your stuff to show again, download the installer for the next build number and upgrade to see when it breaks. Don't forget to kill the autoupdater and rename it each time.
Doing that might help pinpoint what version the issue first started in, which might help pinpoint what change caused it.
It doesn't sound like an issue with the autoupdater itself as after the update, you replaced the profile files with good copies and your stuff still didn't show.
Note that some others users have lost their speed dials when upgrading somewhat recently. Not sure why, but something goes wrong. Doesn't happen to most though.
One more thing because it didn't work on the beginning.
I had to comment the original rule few lines earlier.
But after that, YES.
THIS IS A WORKING SOLUTION
Trackpoint scroll now works again. After half year of scrolling with arrows I can use Opera comfortably again.
Thank you @polardbt1014
Well, this morning it happened again, this time with two windows, the one with 17 tabs and another with a mere 5 tabs. Again, happens when I first wake up the computer after overnight hibernation. Of course since it's only happening to 2 or 3 of us on the face of the earth, I don't expect there's any reason to look forward to a fix. Seriously, if it's still there in the next update, it'll be time to say a vexed goodbye (after maybe 30 years) and take a look at Firefox.
thank you very much for your hint:
For your particular Passwords problem, you could use the NirSoft Chrome Pass dumper, then type each one in Opera and sync or use any Passwords Manager and they will be available in any browser and device (Cloud/Extensions/Mobile Apps).
First I thought WebBrowserPassView already has the passwords included, but I was wrong.
Since I still have the old Windows Installation on a HDD connected internally to my motherboard, I could recover ALL of my passwords from my old User Profile! Now I only have to save and format the password list to a comma-separated file and import it with Opera.
For anybody who wants to recover passwords from another Windows installation or User (or backed up profile folder), follow these steps:
What you need prior to recover your passwords:
A previous or current Windows installation
Your User Password for that Windows Installation
Your User Folder for that Windows Installation
Download and open ChromePass
Press F9 or go to File > Advanced Options
Select the option "Load the passwords from another Windows user or external drive:"
Enter or select/browse for the User Profile path, e.g. E:\Users\John
Check the option "Advanced external drive settings:"
Enter the path for the Windows Protect folder from this user, e.g. E:\Users\John\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Protect\
Enter the path of the Opera Profile folder, e.g. E:\Users\John\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\ or F:\Backup\Opera Profile\
Click OK and wait! It might take some time if you have huge number of passwords.
What's your system?
A possibility exists that a recent system update might have messed with some defaults - like which program is allowed to connect to the Internet...
Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 64-bit
Seems others have the same issue:
"... it's just opera and chrome."
Just wanted to try Opera Developer, but the installer (Opera_NI_developer.exe) is stuck at "Downloading..." Same thing for Stable (Opera_NI_stable.exe)
I have no idea what is going on here. I did not install any update, nor have I changed any system settings.
Well, I must admit that Windows tells me that "This copy of Windows is not genuine". Bullshit! I just don't want to have any Microsoft spyware services running, so I simply refuse to install any update, activation, genuine check or any other tools that may sniff my computer.
If THAT is the culprit... well, then I will have to perform this son of a bitch WGA
1a) Yes, there is. I have no clue where I saw it but I have seen it. So it is out there.
2) Yes. Opera menu > Developer > Task manager. I don't remember if its on by default or if you have to enable something.
Thanks a lot!
For the Task Manager O > More Tools > Show Developer Menu has to be enabled.
Unfortunately it has no Keyboard Shortcut by default and no option to assign one. It has no address bar and doesn't appear in Tabs, so I can't even set a bookmark. Maybe this is something for the suggestions.
Here we go again...

@rudrick said in Request: Extension Bar - resizable and custom order:
Then you can hide whatever ext u want from the bar - but still get them all in a dropdown menu
Yeah I have it ! I unticked "Show uninstall icon" & "Show 'disable all' button" Just so I don't accidentally do something harmful.
Switch to Firefox, Firefox crash frequently but I have full control to my bookmark, sync between different devices, save a backup copy on my pc. I try to put Opera become my default browser, I gave it up, after I began to work on its bookmark,
