Passwords gone

  • (Running 1.4.589.38 (x86) on a win7, 64bit machine)

    I accepted the 1.5 update which had a bug (reported) that was a deal breaker for me and I found a copy of 1.4.589.38 (had to go to a 3rd party website!) and rolled it back.

    Now I find that V can't find my passwords anymore. I shut everything down and rebooted the computer but the problem remains. How are the passwords stored? Folder / File name? How can I fix this?

    Rollback is not usable. Sometimes the structure of password database changes every big version. You cant go back from newer database to older.

    The password database files Login Data and Login Data-journal are in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\

    You can fix it by restoring the password database files from your daily backup.

  • Thanks for your reply.

    Well you & V have convinced me not to take ANY new major version releases till they've been roadtested for 6 mos or so...
