Opera Beta 40 Mac .. Cannot sign into sync

  • 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.
