So on another linux box with the same Ubutnu-gnome 14.04.5 I devloped a problem when I tried to link into sync and the short answer is the /.config/opera/Preferences got ruined. Seams what happens is the password sections of this file are replaced with a link to the sync and for a reason I have not discovered yet syncing the passwords does not work well. The difference seams to be text in that file similar to [,"Passwords":"a 16 digit number"] and during The beginning of the sync opera started to open and crashes about 3 times before final failure, see (/topic/40327/opera-crashes-1-minute-after-being-opened). The password reference gets changed to ,"PASSWORD":"SyncEngineImpl" in any password field. The file is impossible to work with in Gedit so I used my Geany IDE as it is a very long single line with no line breaks. I did study some programming but discovered I did not like it very much, so I can't claim to be a programmer, but it is my hope someone with skills might figure this out, as I have tried to open tickets about this with mo response from the Opera crew for months now. My guess is the sixteen digit number is a hash as I can't find a file that matches the number on on my 4 different Ubuntu boxes the number is different on each one. I have not bothered with my one win7 partition as windows angers me with the slow loading and Click and wait crap. Also they are different progressive versions and the problem continues, if I use the password sync, as I had a version I could see the passwords unit I tried to sync them. Don't sync the password, but export them!!!
@leocg - Thanks but I tried that.See above about CSV's. It didn't work, from the FF csv or the chromium csv.
And I just discovered that Opera also lost all my folder structure for my bookmarks as well as the Descriptions.
I am not going to sit and edit hundreds of bookmarks to add in descriptions and move them to folders. Firefox and Chromium both had zero problems with this.
Note I also DID try to import all my settings, bookmarks and PW's when I installed Opera.
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
@0pera-user I believe you are asking about "How To Lookup Password Manager in Opera Android? "
Answer : Go to Opera Menu (Opera Icon like 'O'). Click on Settings, Scroll down and tap on "Passwords" located in privacy section. Finally Click on "Saved Passwords" and here you'll see all the passwords you have saved so far! You can remove or modify any passwords from here.
Sync would be easiest, though some people report issues with it. Otherwise you'd need to actually export your passwords - the file is encrypted so that it can only be read on the original computer, exporting them is the only way the other computer could read them. (Bookmarks are not encrypted so you could copy that file.)
Thanks! This "Options" link is gray and looks like a continuation of the "Terms and Conditions" text. It could be made more visible
But the passwords are still there though... It's possible to bulk remove them, but still: it's not nice that such sensitive information is being imported without even asking...
