@malevolentseth Like I said, the page where the reset passphrase button is located shows a warning saying that your synced data will be removed. And it happens because it's the only way to change the passphrase.
It says that it "bookmarks, Speed Dials, history, passwords, and open tabs across multiple devices" is the exact words used. I don't use bookmarks so I don't know about that. But it 100% of the time will not sync open tabs. Passwords it does sync. But Speed dials and open tabs are just ignored. I have 106 tabs open. WTF is my sync at?? My windows 10 laptop will not sync with my windows 10 desktop. Just like how my android phone opera will not sync tabs and speed dials with my android tablet. WTF is this so complicated?? Opera obviously sucks at doing this. Totally wish they just made it so I can copy the Opera install folder and paste it on the new device so that you still have your browser with open tabs and all. Its just a browser. Why are my tabs and speed dials under so much lock and key? When I install a browser....I don't plan on keeping it on the device forever. Devices break or you get a new one or you get and additional device. Your going to want to move or mirror your browser. One user should not be forced into having 2 separate browser sessions. I am using the same browser while running the same Operating system of Windows 10 64 bit while on the same network and wired connected and in the same house as both devices while logged in on both devices at the same time and set to sync everything. Nothing syncs though. On the opera sync page it says my synchronized content is 1 tab and one device. Weird being as I have one laptop, one desktop, one windows tablet, 2 android tablets, and 3 phones all running Opera. I'm pretty sure sync don't work unless something is wrong with literally every device I own. I only use Opera because its pretty. Chrome and Mozilla and Brave and plenty others are dramatically better. Just not as pretty. They better fix the sync soon cause I can always use the other browsers and just modify them to look better. I just didn't feel like it since Opera already was a nice design. But looking pretty ain't nothing if you don't work. Who wants a Ferrari that will never drive??
I tried that. But it doesn't work. I spent about an hour googling and trying different things that others posted because I am not the only one having this issue. Thanks for the suggestion though. I appreciate it. These days companies don't help me. The community does. Sometimes anyway. There are some freaking mean people in the online communities that basically treat you like a moron because you asked a question despite them not being obligated to help. They respond as if you are forcing them to help you. So I totally appreciate your suggestion cause you didn't have to comment. Thank you for that. I mentioned in my post that I have 106 tabs open. But when I sign in top the Opera page it says it sees only 1 tab and one device despite me having 106 open and 8 devices all logged in to Opera and set to sync. But it took less than 5 mins to transfer over to google chrome. And I didn't have to sync a single thing. The moment I logged in all devices were synced. I know sync works because it used to work for me. Not sure what happened. And I am sure I can research it and diagnose the problem with trial and error and testing and what not. But I am the end user. I just wanted a working browser. I only get the weekends off. I don't want to waste time diagnosing my browser. You know what I mean? I don't hate Opera. Its my favorite browser. But I will use Google till they fix this if they ever do. I hope they do. Cause chrome works great. But I don't trust Google. I have to search with DuckDuckGo to get untailored non-bias search results.
This is still on going. A complete clean install of windows including a completely clean install of Opera on both devices (so, bookmarks backup, sync data cleared, both opera GX and Opera Android removed). It's such an odd issue, and probably a difficult one to figure out as well.
sounds great. but does anyone know if this is for shure??
i was kicked out from work and was forced to leave my windows passwort, so i'm a bit i am a bit curious if someone is sniffing arround.
an official solution would be adorable. please dear OPERA
imagine, if one had used the password autofill (i use bitwarden, for luck ) this is really bad, or, imagine your admin at work could log into your stuff,
or, you lost your device, not secured. you may want to be sure
