Opera Portable and user-data-dir

Submitted by hgtok on August 8, 2021 - 4:15am


Found that Opera Portable is vulnerable to profile reset and corruption due to its implementation of profile directory using [DirectoriesMove] in the launcher.

Have tested that Opera Portable launcher works well with below argument in the OperaPortable.ini (remember to comment out [DirectoriesMove])

This should improve Opera Portable startup speed and reduce profile corruption.

Hope to see this in the next update.


Been using Chome Portable but lost Settings tabs "Continue where you left off" twice now

Submitted by rick400tec on July 2, 2021 - 8:21pm

Been using Chome Portable for a few months no problems but one, lost Tabs on open when settings "Continue where you left off"
twice now. Restore will bring them back temporarily but keeps opening with no tabs. Tried Save taps open closed, open, good, change back to "Continue where you left off" but still not remembering them.
any ideas?

I am moving a lot between home and the office and I would love to leverage Portable Chrome to be logged in to my work e-mail, calendar, chat service, and a few other sites with my work account, and then just move that USB stick to a different computer, open up my Portable Chrome, and still be logged in and have it automatically go to the exact pages I was at when I left the office.

I just did a full update to Portable Chrome. As soon as I opened it I noticed a distinct slowness but that is not my complaint. What is my complaint is that when I try to save a page either by Ctrl+S or by right-clicking Save as... it totally FAILS to popup a save dialog. It also does not matter what the page is, this is a universal failure.
