Speed Dials Disappeared after computer restart

  • All of my Speed Dials Disappeared.

    I am a new Opera User as of last week, wondering why all of the Speed Dials vanished.
    I used Opera all day yesterday without any problems, then shut it down in the evening a switched to Chrome to view a movie. Computer shut down correctly last night, this morning, went into Opera and all the Speed Dials were gone.

    Opera 35.0

    Use four spaces starting the line to show correct data:

    Was that right now? :wizard:

  • Actually I edited the paths replacing it with X_000 so my actual paths were not being posted publicly.

    I ended up going into the Bookmarks folder where I found the "Other Speed Dials" that are synced from my other computer and Iphone and was able to re-import the previous days speed dials.

    I also went clicked on the Sync Icon and noticed there was a re-sync option available, so I did a re-sync, then logged into my Opera account and looked around. I see that the speed dials from all three devices are appearing in the sync account. As long as they remain there, I should be OK.

    This is a really horrible Opera Bug - It would of been mission critical for my business if I hadn't had a Sync set set-up, and if nothing else a entire waste of time to redo all the speed dials. I actually moved to Opera to save time and speed thing up's, this just slowed things down.

    Thanks for the help, a quick Internet shows that the Speed Dial issue is fairly common. Hope this gets fixed.
