@thomasmca Thank you. In fact it was just a matter of time: I left it over the night, and in the morning it was synced. Still, weird that the process was completely blocked for over an hour. I'm not sure your approach would have worked, since the OS is different - and I didn't really backup my dot folders. blush
Let's talk about latest and greatest in Opera world: experimental builds, beta and developer versions
New build - Opera developer 67.0.3574.0 ;-)
The change log, and the announcement.
Sidebar setup panel
The Sidebar settings menu has been replaced with a new panel, which is opened from the "three-dot" icon at the bottom of the sidebar. The new panel is well-organized – making workspace and sidebar management more comfortable and intuitive. For starters, you are now able to edit, or remove all of the sidebar elements individually. Starting from the top, you can customize your Workspaces by adding, removing, showing or hiding them. Also, all of the Messengers are now listed.
In the Special Features group, you’ll find Opera’s features like: My Flow, Instant Search and CryptoWallet. Opera Tools is the last category, with browser management areas like: History, Downloads and Extensions. History and Bookmarks can now be opened from either the sidebar panel, or the full-page menu.
Highlight duplicate tabs on hover
We would also like to present a new way of handling many tabs. When hovering a tab, any inactive tab in the same window and workspace, which has the same address is displayed.
Improved login process for Opera Synchronization
Opera Synchronization lets you synchronize your bookmarks, passwords and other Opera settings between your various Opera browsers. In this release, we are testing an improvement for signing up, and logging into Opera Synchronization. You can now log into your browser from a new site in a separate tab, rather than the previously-used popup.
Although it won’t affect daily usage much, this should make it simpler for new users to join the service, or to retrieve a backup, when starting Opera on a new machine. The new authentication site makes the steps for signing up easier to follow, and you’re free to interrupt and resume the process of using all the usual tools you have at your disposal, when browsing sites in Opera.
Some changes, fixes and improvements:
- DNA-80370 Can’t import from Edge – close browser false positive detection.
- DNA-81730 Whitelist Google Analytics on olist.ng for tracker blocking.
- DNA-82636 Some popups’ borders look too thick/blurry.
- DNA-83240 Reopening last closed tab doesn't activate inactive Workspace.
- DNA-83242 [Win] Horizontal Tab Cycler breaks Tab Preview functionality in tab menu.
- DNA-83427 Installing third party extensions doesn’t work.
- DNA-83465 [Sidebar] Allow to open History and Bookmarks in a tab.
- DNA-83513 Add popup for creation and edition of Workspaces.
- DNA-83550 Remove unused AudioStreamSplitter implementation.
- DNA-83654 Empty content, when opening panel with browser on 2 monitors.
- DNA-83662 Upgrade Widevine on master.
- DNA-83691 Cannot load opera:media-internals.
- DNA-83763 Unable to install extension by dragging it from desktop.
- DNA-83779 Enable opera:conflicts on developer.
- DNA-83582 [Mac] No tab preview, when hovering over Tab Menu elements.
- Several crash fixes - details in the change log.
One of important: DNA-83698 Crash, when trying to use Extensions sidebar shortcut.
New Opera's flag #suggestion-scoring-improved (disabled by default, work in progress)

Opera's flags enabled by default in this build (ready to test it):
When hovering a tab, display any inactive tab in the same window and workspace, which has the same address as the hovered tab in hover state.
Enables the setup panel for the browser sidebar.
Removed Opera's flag #crypto-wallet-ios-instructions.
The Chromium has been updated to version 80.0.3987.7.
With or without profile, with Opera just installed or all set up.
Live Facebook streams with crashes all the time even with only its page open, but most of the time the problem is full screen on either Facebook or Twitch
@leocg Discovered the VPN icon (next to the Start Page icon , in the address line) was turned on, clicked it OFF, and problem with signing in to Netflix.com and dvd.netflix.com was resolved! Thanks for your multiple problem solving attempts in OPERA!
I don't use portable version as my main browser in Opera and it installed on system partition. Also I always update my windows 10 version to latest one when updates available.I couldn't find a pattern for when this happen. to me it is few times happened. But i didn't get that notification repeatedly when visiting specific site. Notification ask for firewall exception for private and public network. when it appear i don't change my settings. Just apply with same it settings. Which is allow only for private networks.
Re: Not accepting .webm or .mp4 for custom animated wallpaper anymore?
Here is a workaround for making your own animated wallpaper.
Go to https://addons.opera.com/da/wallpapers/details/rain-in-gta-v/. right-click on "add to Opera" and chose "save linked content as".
Convert the background folder your've downloadet from .avzip to .zip
Delete video.webm inside the zip folder
Rename your own .webm video to video.webm and put it in the background zip folder
Go to your /Opera folder and find a folder named 65.0.3467.78 or something like it (If you have more than one then take the newest).
Go to inside the 65.0.3467.78 folder then go to resources\standard_themes
Put your backgroud zip folder in this folder
If you have opera open then close it and reopen it. The background should then be visable under all backgrounds.

@mikeoshay What is something that should not be done. Posts should have its authors own words.
Fair enough, different forums have their own rules regarding this, not my place to barge in and start questioning yours.

The quoted message was old and had already been answered, so to me that didn't make sense.
You're right, that specific question was more directly answered than I thought. It was late and I was still frustrated by this after months. It took me quite a while to figure out the issue was caused by Opera, there are people who had the problematic update installed and will never figure it out.
@snowieez hi dear sir or madam ,thank you for your wonderful browser, unfortunately recently because of filtering in Iran ,opera vpn can not connect to its servers , please help me to solve this issue , sincerely yours .sal
