Windows XP/Opera Extensions Keep Disappearing
I noticed that you have answered a previous question about Opera and thought you may be able to help me with mine. Each time that I open Opera, all of the extensions I have installed disappear; my extensions page indicates that I "don't have any installed" regardless of which ones I had installed before they disappeared upon re-opening Opera. I am using the "previous" version of Opera since the new one doesn't suit me, but this version works fine on my other laptop with Windows 7. Could you help me understand what I may need to do with Opera's paths or anything else to prevent this from happening, please? I have pasted the "Version Information", "Browser Identification", and "Paths" that were listed in the "About Opera" page of my browser. Thank you.
Opera/9.80 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64) Presto/2.12.388 Version/12.16

Robert, I do not use Opera but I will mention a couple of possibilities obtained by searching on your problem.
1) Try uninstalling the FLASH program. You can easily download and reinstall it. FLASH was mentioned in a forum as causing a problem with Opera extensions.
2) A culprit also mentioned is using the "delete private data" feature and including deleting "persistent storage" or "plugin data". Or if you go into tools/preferences/storage and delete persistent storage, that can screw up various extensions.
Hope that one of these help.
