    Well - it may not be - can anyone advise the Opera restrictions on password, like length and spcial char stuff? Then maybe I can remember it....

    alternatively should that fail - anyone know a reset or similar or should I just rip the thing out and go again?

    You might have to take it out and put it back in again ...

    I just had to put opera back in myself. For some reason it quit allowing me to post anything on here. I think it was an extension or something that I installed... It is working great now.

    As for the master password, I don't really use one. The constant pop up wanting me to put it in was driving me nuts...

    Something else that is annoying is that at time when I go to a page and try to go back, it automatically redirects right back to the page ... Is there any way I can stop that?

    You could give this a try as it should recover in trail mode part of your passwords, not sure about the master password since I don't use it.

    Opera Password Recovery

    Otherwise there are a lot things in google about reseting the master password in opera

    Many thanks guys - OSNN seems to be a little livelier, at least if this thread is any indication!

    I've actually made a post on the Opera forum - if I get useful intel there I shall post it back here if time...

    now I have simply remembered the password I believe... But I am for sure unable to figure out the complex way Opera handles this stuff.... may revert to FFox just for simplicities sake although I like many other features of Opera....
