Sync not working for me

  • I have Opera on a Windows desktop and a Mac and it seems to sync fine. However, I just installed it on a new Windows machine and although I am logged in, it does not sync any of my data.

    I am using version 36.0. I can't reset the sync on https://sync.opera.com/web/ because the website won't render properly for me for some reason. It is just a garbled list of HTML links => http://tinyurl.com/he6qggu

    Any suggestions? I have been to the bookmark manager and cant see any there. I have logged in and out and that makes no difference.

  • Is there possibly some extension? Like adblock plus?

  • Hi jonathanwylie, I have a similar problem (you may have seen my post) but I can see the reset sync page so I am currently trying a reset and I will let you know the results via this forum. So now it says I have no sync data stored and please login to sync. I login and the little icon (top right corner of the window shows a green tick but a few seconds later it disappears. When I go to the Opera menu in the tool bar I see I am logged in and when I click on that identity the little icon with the green tick reappears but again only for a few seconds. I now believe this is normal behaviour.
    I finally have all my bookmarks synced accross both devices. It seems that each time I revisit the https://sync.opera.com/web/# site a little more is synced. Initially this page only showed 1 device after three tries it now shows 2 devices.
    My guess is this is about connectivity, refreshing the sync page over and over seems to have worked for me but I note that Passwords and Preferences are greyed out. I notice in Preferences>Browser>Advanced Configuration there are encryption options, either using Opera credentials or a Passphrase. I did wonder what this "Passphrase" referred to on the Sync page was but this explains it. I am now wondering if I was to setup a passphrase would my Passwords and Preferences sync as well because they certainly have not so far.
    jonathanwylie, I hope you can open the page above and try what i suggest. Reply if you still have a problem
