Speed dial it's not keeping my bookmarks

  • Hi, I'm having a trouble with the speed dial. I add pages to the speed dial but only stays until I close the browser, when I open it again my speed dial is empty. The strangest thing is that when I search them in the sidebar, in "other speed dials" the pages that I saved are in a folder. Any idea what could be happening?

  • What is your version and installation type?
    For all users? Standalone?
    Are you the administrator of your system?

  • I have the 30.0.1835.125 and still happend. It's my personal laptop, so, yes I'm the administrator and the only user.

    It seems that Opera somehow thinks that there's a new, different installation of the program.

    If you add this page to your speed dial and restart Opera, does it appears in the same Other Speed Dial's folder than the other disappeared ones or in a different one?

  • No, creates a new folder every time that starts

  • I even tried using Revo Uninstaller to erase all the Opera data and reinstall it, but still does the same.

    Can you share a couple of those folders names?

    Try this:

    Run Opera's installer, click on options, change the install path, change the "install for" to usb/standalone nd proceed to installation.

    Open Opera from that install folder, add some speed dials, restart Opera and check if the issue still happens.

  • The name of the folders was always "vaio fit-14" (my pc's name). I did what you suggested, I changed the installation type from "all users" to "standalone" and chose a different install path. That solved the problem, thanks a lot for the help.

    Each installation of Opera has a unique ID and if you have more than one installation in the same computer with sync enabled, your SDs will be shown in different folders with the same name (your computer name) under "Other Speed Dials".

    It means that may be a problem with Opera's profile folder when installed for all users.

    Can you do the process again, change the install path to something like "Opera Stable1" (or anything different from the default one and check if the problem happens?

  • I reinstalled it in the 'program files' path with the name 'OperaStable1' and it's working fine, the bookmarks stays in their place.

  • Nice. No idea why it wasn't working before.
