Update: Opera 12.10 re-adds the missing feature that this plugin implements, so there’s no need to use this plugin if you’re using Opera 12.10 or higher.
Update: Modern version of Opera support Google Chrome plugins, so you can use the equivalent Chrome plugin instead.
About the project
Install the extension at Opera Add-Ons.
Or: Download the extension from GitHub and install it by opening it in Opera.
It will begin working on any newly-loaded or refreshed pages immediately, or on all pages after a reload.
With KeePass running as usual, click into the “username” field on any website for which you have credentials saved in KeePass. Press your Global Auto-Type Hotkey (on Windows, this defaults to Left Ctrl + Alt + A). KeePass will fill in and submit the form.

The native Opera behavior can be enabled with Show Address In Caption (opera:config#UserPrefs|ShowAddressInCaption)
The native Opera behaviour is missing in some 11.x versions, though, which is why this plugin exists.
i got 2 questions:
1) does this work on opera 11.52?
2) when i go to a site asking me for info like, name, address, email, city, etc., i press Alt + Ctrl + A and none of the fields get filled. i dont understand. what should i do first to get this working?
1) It ought to, but I’ve not been supporting this project since Opera 12 was released and re-added the missing feature that caused it to be required in the first place, so I’ve not tested it.
2) All this plugin does is to put the full web page address into the title bar, which makes it possible for KeePass’s “auto-fill” functionality (which is, by default, bound to ALT-CTRL-A on Windows systems: other operating systems may vary) to work in Opera.
To test if the plugin is working, check in the title bar to see if the web address is appearing. If it is, the plugin is working and you should check your KeePass settings.
Hope that helps!
It looks like the username/password autotype (CTRL+V) doesn’t work natively with Opera 18.0.1284.68 ; will this plugin fix that?
[…] on your devices, you can you like KeePass, it has a lots of plugins, like Firefox, Chrome and Opera Add-ons so it can fill up your forms as well. Also has apps for Android like KeePassDroid or Keepass2Android iOS like MiniKeePass Windows Phone like 7Pass or […]
This no longer works.
