Sync not working

  • Can someone explain me what is that sync all about? 2 PCs and 1 phone and sync is not working on all of them. Why is there that sync feature if its not syncing anything? All I can see is tabs on devices what is really useless feature but no speed dial sync no bookmarks sync no settings sync no extensions sync no theme sync...

  • Do you use Opera Beta/developer on any of those devices you are syncing between?

    Yes I have developer version too but problem is that its not syncing stuff between stable versions of Operas.

  • Are you looking at the correct places?

    You will find speed dials from other devices in menu - bookmarks - other speed dials.

    Opened tabs will be in tabs menu.

    Ok for some reason its started to work but still have some issue. I cant see bookmarks from: Opera>Bookmarks>My folders. Its just empty.

  • I also don't have any synchronization between my desktop Opera on Windows and my Opera for Android. Both are the latest versions and on both I am logged in.
    Admittedly I don't use the mobile version often and I even don't see any possibility to manage bookmarks there.

  • Also having problems. Opera on my android stared duplicating bookmark folders, and now it says the last sync was nearly two weeks ago. Is there any way to manually initiate a sync?

  • Oh, holy smokes, talk about overcomplicated. It's one thing to save speed dials in separate, by-device folders, but come on... How about not hiding them? Especially this much. Dunno about others, but for me, sync means I see the same thing on device B as I see on device A - not "saved to cloud but hidden in some obscure place where you may be able to manually retrieve them". Please do change this, team, it's very jarring. @_@

  • I agree - what is on device A (desktop) should be visible on device B (android). Since v27 of Opera, my bookmarks have not synced. I deleted and resinstalled with no changes. I am also seeing the same issue on Firefox. Both Opera and Firefox recently changed to a new syncing system and the info I found regarding FF - which I assume applies to Opera - is there is a 5,000 total bookmark limit and if you have more, the sync will not occur. Funny thing is, this was not an issue prior to the sync changes.

    It also was stated it was a Android/Google limitation. Ironically, Chrome syncs everything with no troubles.

    I will say that I know get most of my folders but they typically are empty. I wish someone from Opera would chime in as this is making this browser difficult to use.

  • And now all it says is "No synced tabs". Won't even tell me when the last sync was. We REALLY need a manual/force sync option because this is ruining Opera for me.

  • Is there a solution for the problem? I have the same issues...2 desktop's and one phone and 3 different contents of bookmarks.

  • I've had to install an extension that lets me export my bookmarks as html (why this functionality was removed from Opera, I have no idea), copy that to my tablet and save it to speed dail. It's a horrible solution; Opera Link was never this bad.

  • I'm having the same problem. All of my devices have Sync enabled (Android 5.0, Windows 7, Windows 10) but nothing get synchronized. I add bookmarks on one device and it never gets syncrhonized to the others... same with History.

  • Same problem. Have an Opera account for a few months now and Sync never worked. Opera respond!

  • I can't understand why Opera hasn't sorted this yet. I used to sing the praises of Opera since way back in version 8, but lately it seems to be style over function. Will this ever get fixed, or will a decade of browser loyalty be ending?

  • Also not working:

    Got PC with Win10, Tablet with Win10, and Phone with Android 4.4.4. Between first two devices the sync is working as expected, but on my phone the last date bookmarks was synced is form 25.7.2015, thats awful mistake which still wasnt solved by Opera developeres!

    Also important question, as i jumped on Opera32 (not beta) on my phone, and on my pc i was searching how the "hell" im supossed to save my bookmarks to your servers? Why is it so difficult to make it just user friendly, can you please tell me how can i save bookmarks to Your servers to be safe there and synced between my devices?

    Thanks in advance. Just concentrate on sync, this should be main priority for now for Opera, as far that is what differs you from other business competitors, so far you seem bit ahead. Once You solved this critial point, i will be happy Opera user as i am for a awfull lot years and hopefuly still will be.

  • And now, with no warning, explanation or apology, it is suddenly working. I can only hope that it doesn't stop again - I mean, how hard would it be to add a 'sync now' manual update button?

  • Sync not working.
    I confirm, the same situation lasts third day on my Opera Mini 11.0.1912.96480 - Jelly Bean 4.1.2.
    Disconnection takes place almost in the blink of an eye after logging and this situation repeats itself with no synchronization with Opera for Android 30.0.1856.95530, no bookmarks, no speed dial.
    At some point when the browser displays the status of log on and log off for synchronization in the same period,

    this resembles a phenomenon of Schrödinger's cat from the quantum physics.
    It's weird when it happens on the Opera field.

  • To everyone with not working synchronization:

    Please sign-in on Desktop browser and after that open browser://sync-internals and either paste here screenshot of it or its dump - there is "Dump status" button at the top.

  • Cannot paste dump status. Forum does not allow that many characters.

    I haven't been able to log into Sync. The functionality it has seems fine to me when it does work.
