Latest build network activity when shouldn't

  • I installed opera 37.0.2178.43 updated from 36.0.2130.65. This is for windows 7. Since then, my network activity for my dial up connection is active even when a web page isn't even loading. I have my startpage set as about:blank. I have the network indicator installed that gives you the two little monitors in the notification area like xp had. It blinks like crazy when it shouldn't be. Close opera and the blinking stops. Start opera again, after a while issue starts again. Downgraded back to opera 36 issue is gone. Anyone have any idea what the latest version is accessing that the previous version doesn't? I always disable the autoupdates after installs of opera. Can't load webpages when something else is hogging access in the latest build.

  • Do you have Sync enabled?

  • In opera 36 I have sync disabled, as I have with previous builds. I didn't make any change to it in version 37. Haven't checked to see if that remained so in the latest build. Does updating to opera 37 enable it again without user input or does it retain my disabled setting from the previous build? Right now in opera 36 I am not signed in to use sync. I trust that you have to sign in to use sync in opera 37 as well.
