    Hello.

    Just want to ask if Opera has stopped the sync service for Opera 36.0.2130.80? This is the last version of the browser that supports Windows XP and Windows Vista. Is sync no longer supported on this browser?

    Thanks.

    And the problem with sync would be...? It's not syncing? You can't login? What?

      Yep, it's not syncing. I can log in the browser from the sync icon but after that, after logging in to my account, the sync disconnects and sign out of my account after 1 or 2 seconds then the usual error message appears saying "Something went wrong." No matter how many times I try to sign in the browser to my account, it keeps on logging out. I've already tried starting the browser with a clean profile but nothing changed.

      Can you confirm if they already unplugged the sync support for their Windows XP version of the Opera browser?

      Not that I know. At least I don't remember have seen anything official on this.

        Exactly the same issue with VISTA, received the account confirmation email, obviously the set up is accepted or I could not respond on the forum.

          Opera 36 is the latest version with support for XP and Vista.

              Is there any other way of synchronizing my bookmarks to my Opera account without using the sync icon of the browser? Like using an extension or something.

              My Opera 36 on XP seems to be still logged into the Sync system fine, but I have no other installs of Opera so I can't test if it's actually working!
              :)

                  Opera sync is now working. This obviously means the problem is not on our end but with Opera itself. I hope it stays like this.
