Even though you put it in the form of a question, thank you for this answer it helped.
I've been wondering how to make speed dial my start page again and get rid of the annoying gamer headlines tab and this was the fix. Not intuitive, obvious or even readily apparent, but "GX corner in sidebar" setting works.
Hey @magicalgirlbeth have you got your "Scores on game deals" yet?
Now on 22/01/2020 still dont's seem it appear on my GX Coner too! have you find any solution on it?
My Opera GX Version:
LVL 1 (core: 64.0.3417.172)
Opera is up to date
System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Try on a Clean Profile.
If happens then it would need to be reported, if not, you have to check your Profile settings or set up a new one if the source can't be found.
Once working again, do weekly back ups.
If a new Profile is needed:
You could try pasting some files to the new one from the old one - look at the Signature -.
Paste old files could repeat the same problem.
For the Suggestions, post on Features Suggestions SubForum.
Look at SessionBuddy Extension on the meantime.
"Off Topic Tip"
Follow the Signature's Backup | Reset link.
Take the opportunity to start a Backup plan and even create a Template Profile.
SyncBack | Synkron helps.
Windows 7 (x64)
Opera Test profile | Back up | Reset
@leocg Closing all tabs worked! (Opera is set to open with last session) Saved open tabs in speed dial folder, closed them and restarted Opera. No more GX download. I'll remember this tip for the future. Thanks much.
@wyczesanygrzesio That's interesting. I had the same issue a few month ago but it disappeared like it came. And I agree, it was really annoying.
I still have problems with Messenger such as sending files making it crash .
