Bookmark importer issue in opera 18

  • Hey guys,
    first off I apologize if I am posting this in the wrong section.
    and here's my problem
    I have old opera 12 (presto) installed on my machine.
    I have new opera 18 installed on my machine.
    My bookmarks are perfectly synced and can be found at opera link.
    But when I try to use bookmark importer to import my bookmarks from opera link to the QAB I can't see any of my bookmarks in there. The only one link I see of is the link to bing. Which I never ever bookmarked.

    any idea what the problem may be ?
    is it because in my program files > opera folder I have my opera 12 located and also there are two subfolders 1 from opera 18 and one for opera 17. Is 17 causing some conflict in profiles ?

  • Importer doesn't sync to Link ...

    Was Opera 12 64-bit? The importer only really looks for 32-bit Opera, and has to be told where to find 64-bit Opera.

    Moved to Opera Browser.

  • I guess that could be the case. So how do I point the importer to find my 64-bit opera ?
    (Sorry if it's a lame question but I can do with some guidance on this.)

  • If you no longer use Opera 12, you could just rename the profile to the name it expects for a 32-bit profile. The other way - telling it where to import your profile from - will force the new Opera to replace its existing profile (any settings you've made since installing) and thus is not desirable if you've had the new version for long ...

  • I tried some fiddling around but I don't see why my opera 18 is having trouble reading opera 12 profile ?
    the folder for opera 18 is in appdata/roaming/opera software
    and for opera12 it is appdata/roaming/opera

    and both are 32 bit.

    so I still don't get it that why is opera 18 not reading through the old profile.
    and where is that one single bookmark of coming from ?

    I think if I can find the location of that bing bookmark I may find the source of trouble.
