Don't remember to use the Passphrase, but should not be necessary for local passwords, I think it's just for Sync.
You are right about the needing of a 2 steps authentication method or to use a personal question, don't know if has been suggested, but should exist a warranty to recover your data even forgetting your Passphrase.
You can search if exists or create a new topic.
At the other hand,
take a look at KeePass, despite your browser's choice will keep all your passwords save, even for local machines, routers, ISP's, credit cards data...
You'll need to remember fewer passwords and it has extensions for browsers and apps for mobile devices - despite they are made from unofficial devs -.
Nowhere where I click (right-click) around the top UI I do not get context menu allowing me to tick bookmarks bar into visibility again.
Closing it is fast now - but yet I don't see a fast usher in (by mouse/touch) of the bookmarks bar when needed.
Could there be some/any/kind/of drag, hover or pin/unpin solution? If not context menu to set the bar open?
I just updated to vers. 50.0.2762.45 as of 10 Jan 18. Works A-ok. Was getting the same issue: nothing would allow me to access passwords. So things are 5x5 w this user. Hope this helps. Advise getting the new version... John...
For me, Opera sponsored suggestions always show first and always come back (I can remove them but they are back the next time I return to speed dial) which is why I just disabled suggestions completely. Not useful in its current form.
My god, it even comes back from the Trash You can temporarily "hide" it (1 hour? 2? 3? one app restart maybe?), but then it's recreated and slapped right back on the top of Suggestions. You can delete/hide the Opera suggestion - it won't return. But AliExpress? Stuck with it.
This was not a case in Opera until this new dev version I've installed of Opera 41, I was on the x64 Opera 40 dev before it and all was OK, you could delete all the default items in Speeddial etc. In the end I gave up and unticked Suggestions altogether.
I don't understand why they think this is OK to do. There is so much choice on the browser market, why would you risk alienating users?
I'm facing the same problems.
Pages loading time is higher, using scroll makes me shoot my head and almost all the times when page is loading the fun is at full speed. I have the version 38.0.2220.12, and with the earlier version everything went fine! I'm considering to say goodbye to opera beta
For some reason the Beta seems to rely more on the CPU for very simple operations like page loading. The freezing, at least in my case, is definitely cause by CPU spikes (see images above). The Dev Opera (v. 39) helped a bit, but there are still spikes.
Worse, graphically intense pages (many small videos/pics) are still very bad and at this time I simply have to switch to Edge for smooth scrolling.
I hope this gets remedied, I was just getting to like Opera again after a years long hiatus when they ditched the old engine.
Many thanks Blackbird71 that post was most informative and could account for browser variations. It looks as though we are getting somewhere and helps me understand the situation better. Unfortunately TLS1.2 did not help. It is now enabled along with SSL3 and TLS1, however when looking at details only SSL3 TLS1 is shown ,no TSL1.2. Whether I need to reinstal the same version over the top or update to the next one from old versions to get these I do not know. Checking for updates does not install them, it only wants me to accept the latest version. I disabled auto update som time ago as it was a nuisance, popped up as I was clicking a web page where it jumped up between and started downloading. It was stopped promptly.
The following is a typical entry from the Error Console with a yellow triangle and exclamation mark.

-moz-transition-property is an unknown property
Other than it relating to cascading style sheets it does not mean much so is probably irrelevent.
I have been an opera user from the very early days but stopped updating like many others,when the big change was made after this version. I looked at either V15 or V18 on an Android tablet and did not like what I saw.
As I said previously bookmarks had gone and neither could you alter the names of sites in the new setup. I may look again providing the new Bookmarks facility is as good as the old one. Thanks again.
@toyo The people who currently maintain Opera do not seem care much if at all about their users judging from the countless posts all over the internet.
The original developers of Opera are currently developing a new browser called Vivaldi. This browser is in beta now, but it clearly shows that they understand what the users want. Unfortunately, it is not ready to replace our default browser yet, but let us keep our fingers crossed.
