Cannot save passwords - OS X El Capitan

  • Dear all, I apologize if this problem is known or already reported but I was unable to find similar topics. My problem is the following: when I start Vivaldi and go to a website, like gmail or facebook, I start typing my login and I am prompted with the popup: "Allow Vivaldi to access Chrome Safe Storage..." at that point I can only press Reject, because clicking 'Allow' or 'Always' does not do anything and the popup stays there...then the popup closes when I click reject, I finish typing my login and password and click "remember password" when prompted... Upon closing Vivaldi and starting it again the story repeats. I tried to deleting the fb password from the keychain, and googled for the same issue, but I cannot find anything... A friend of mine has the same problem, he is also on mac. I am on El capitan and he is on Yosemite. Any idea why this is happening? This browser is awesome, I love it, keep on with the wonderful job devs!

  • Hi,
    I had on El Capitan 10.11.2 a similar issue, downloaded Vivaldi vers. 1.0.344.37 (Beta 2) (64-Bit), additionally I switched off the MagicPrefs application of MagicMouse first, started Vivaldi browser, confirmed "Allow Vivaldi to access Chrome Safe Storage…" and restarted MagicPrefs afterwards again ... solved.

  • I don't know. For me the allow procedure is no issue, and when I click save password it gets saved. The problem is that it doesn't work anywhere but on Most sites only autofill my username, not the password, other sites leave everything blank – although they are all listed in settings.
