There used to be a workaround which I had to perform every few weeks:
As of today this workaround doesn't work any more, because the flag apparently doesn't exist.
Frankly, I've had it with this nonsense. I'm too tired to find a solution, again.
If you think you constantly need to break your browser, be my guest, I'll just go away then and hope firefox has fixed the memory leak issue in the meanwhile.
By the way the "Solved" tag on the thread linked above ought to be removed, and the topic activated again, because you guys just broke the workaround too. Congrats.
@EmreTheLizard Jeezus Christ! You have to get into the Windows Source Code to make Opera stop auto-logging you out and stop wiping out usernames/passwords? So stupid!
I wish Firefox worked properly. Maybe I can revive Netscape 7.2
It even changed the f.. Time Zone in my Yahoo mail! I don't have time for this f... bullshit!
Somebody said you have to go into Settings to stop freaking auto-logout, but didn't say where. Now I have to recover all of my goddamned passwords again, because Opera decides to not save some passwords for no freaking reason. Nobody asked me to automatically update Opera. I'm not interested in getting into Source Code and rebuilding the browser from scratch. I have WORK to do and my entire life is on-hold trying to solve this crap. Do I have to go back to Firefox?
I am was experiencing the same. Enter login credentials, select items to sync and watch a never ending loading circle.
Restart browser. Sync message says there was an issue with passwords which were encrypted with old password. Sync with passwords deselected .. watch never ending loading circle .. Grrrrrr
Restart browser (Ignoring warning (didn't even read it)). Sync appears to have gone through (green), profile page has all my bookmarks listed as synced. Opera on Android has access to all bookmarks.
Should be said that I have recently used the "reset passphrase" feature as it was a several years old password (read: forgotten ages ago). Seems the phrase reset works now .. didn't 18 months ago which is why I uninstalled Opera then.
To Opera: Sync seems to hang on something which makes it look like it is stuck, maybe set a max time per item being synced and auto abort after. One can always resync if network is to blame as you have a "sync now" button somewhere .. right!?!
To original poster: Sync again, when it hangs try restarting browser and deselect items from sync until you either get a green light or run out of stuff to deselect .. remember to report back .. any/all data is valuable when it comes to troubleshooting code
@henrikerlandsson Did you do all the steps before posting? What are the examples of pages where you see the problem happening? What are the steps to try to reproduce the problem? What's the OS?
YouTube works fine in Opera here by the way.
@Gustistereo I work on Windows, and my version is 70.0.3728.95, and I have both the Tabs button (no issues there from what I've see so far) on the side bar, and the search in tabs button on the top bar, but there definitely seems to be only the list of opened and closed tabs of the device (not all the devices).
