Opera Beta 40 Mac .. Cannot sign into sync

  • I just installed Mac Beta 40 and noticed that my preferences wasn't showing that I was signed into Sync. I attempted to sign in, entered my userid and password, clicked sign in and nothing. I verified login credentials via web login. Thanks

  • What happens when you try to login? There is an error message?

  • No error message .. The Sync Menu icon appears for about 5 seconds then disappears. Preferences shows that I'm not logged in. I cross posted this to the Beta forum as I'm not having an issue on non-beta versions. Thanks

  • I disabled all my extensions .. When I sign in it now says "An Error has Occurred .. Please try again". This does not occur on non-beta versions.

    Found this on the Developer v40 change log from July .. I didn't see it in the Beta v40 change log .. Could this be the cause?

    The first Opera developer 40.0.2267.0

    "Right at the start of O40 cycle, we are introducing an upgrade to the synchronization feature. Following the industry standards, we have changed our authorization infrastructure to support OAuth2

  • Found this on the Developer v40 change log from July .. I didn't see it in the Beta v40 change log .. Could this be the cause?

    It shouldn't cause any issues.

  • But something in the beta is ... If I give a timestamp of a log in attempt, can the server side be looked at for a possible reason?

    Version: 40.0.2308.3 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: beta
    System: Mac OS X 10.11.6 64-bit

  • So .. Clicking on Sync Sign in, Instead of logging in with my credentials, I created a new account .. and viola, I was logged in. Then I thought that it was a special character in my password (contained '{'), so I changed my password to remove special characters and still not able to sign in. Weird .. I'm going to delete my login and in 7 days will attempt to create it .. We'll see how that goes.

  • Does opera://sync-internals/ shows something unusual?

  • Nothing to speak about .. The About tab has a lot of "Uninitialized" and the other tabs are empty ..

    I just downloaded Opera 39 on the Mac and have no issue signing into sync. So it's something related to the v40 beta

  • I'm having the same issue. Running the following version:

    39.0.2256.48 on Mac OS X 10.11.6 64-bit

    opera://sync-internals/ just shows that I'm disassociated. Not logged in.

  • It would be beneficial if the Sync Protocol Log would reflect a (un)successful login attempt. If I sign in with a wrong password, I get the same error as a correct password - "An Error has Occurred .. Please try again", Perhaps detailing what the error is would be beneficial.

    Thanks

    @rlh1533 - I have no issues signing into sync with v39 .. Did you try to log into the web site "auth.opera.com" or "sync.opera.com" to verify your login credentials?

  • Opera beta 40.0.2308.11 on Win 8.1, sync can't login. Credentials verified via sync.opera.com/web/.
    New account with simple password did not help.

    Opera beta 40.0.2308.3 on Fedoara 24: when Opera started, sync can login for a minute, then error:

  • Opera beta 40.0.2308.15, sync works fine.

  • exactly the same issue!

  • I have the issue at home: Opera 40 up-to-date running on OS X 10.9, failing to sign in and sync. It has been broken since July 2016 or earlier.
    The opera://sync-internals page reports an unrecoverable error (BackendInitialize failure), which seems related to the Chrome engine. Maybe the local data have been corrupted in some way, however I don't know how to repair that.

    Checking on <sync.opera.com/web/>, remote data are OK. At work I use Opera 40 running on Win7, and this one signs in and syncs alright.
