yes I did provide a valid address, and I did not report it to get support, I reported it to raise a flag of an important problem that affect multiple users , AKA report a bug. It is common sens to expect a feedback of such an issue and I believe that if more people raise the flag, it will make them consider putting more effort into this problem.
I'm an IT myself and if multiple users report me the same problem, I will understand that the problem is of much greater importance than a problem of the same level experienced by only one user.
I'm not trying to sound like an ass here, but you came into this post, almost telling people that they its not a real bug because you are not at the moment experiencing any problem with the sync as of right now, but I swear that if you do encounter this problem in the future, you will think differently. You are in no way, helping anyone in this post.
Did you empty the trash after have deleted the bookmarks?
As far as I know, there is no main device in sync and all devices synchronize with all other devices.
If you want different bookmarks on your different Opera installations then maybe you need separated accounts.
No bookmarks or other speed dials either. I have Opera Mini on my iPhone but no corresponding speed dials or bookmarks there either.
Synchronisation is not working so it seems, is there a manual import option?
We are talking about sync password or sync passphrase? Sync password is your Opera account password, the same that you use to login here in the forums (unless you have created a different account, while sync passphrase is the one that you create to encrypt your synced data.
To reset the sync password, you go to your account login page and click on 'forgot password' (or something like this). To create a new passphrase, you need to reset your synced data and then go to the sync settings to disable passphrase or add a new one.
I've signed into sync and its not downloading anything. No history, no bookmarks, nothing... Why?? How can I even see data and bookmarks?
I've tried using Opera sync several times over the last year and it NEVER works... what the hell??
