Speed Dial Blank

  • This is how it does not work. Shall I write down the steps to reproduce this unexpected behaviour? Here we go:

    • Install Opera on device 1
    • Sign in
    • Install Opera on device 2
    • Sign in
    • Add entry to Speed Dial on device 1
    • See how it does not show up on device 2
    • See two entries in "Other Speed Dials"

    From my counting it represents 98 % of the users.

    You can see the Speed Dial entries in the bookmarks: Press Ctrl + Shift + B and look for the folder "Speed Dial".

    Plain installations will work - as usual. I want to find out where Opera stores the Speed Dial entries and how deleting Foldders from "Other Speed Dials" can affect those files and them no longer being displayed properly.

    As said, this is by design. If you want it to behave in a different way then please suggest/request it on the Suggestion Box area, where for sure there are other similar requests.

  • I want to find out where Opera stores the Speed Dial entries

    In 'Bookmarks' file(s) in Opera's profile folder.

    Plain installations will work - as usual.

    If a standalone installation works then there are high chances that your profile is broken.

    how deleting Foldders from "Other Speed Dials" can affect those files and them no longer being displayed properly.

    If you delete a folder in 'other speed dials' you will remove all entries in the device that names it.

  • Do you have any insights, of what can be "broken" in those ASCII-Files?

    I can accept that a device's Speed Dial is empty after deleting the device folder.
    I cannot accept that the Speed Dial does not work after doing so.

    Not exactly. Most probably 'Preferences' or 'Local State'.

    Someone from Opera would need to answer that one.

  • Update

    I did a clean install of Opera. The default Speed Dial entries are displayed. After turning on the synchronization, the Speed Dial entries are all gone. Addin a new entry to the Speed Dial shows it properly in the Bookmarks and the application icon jump list in the task bar, but not on the Speed Dial page. Opening the Speed Dial shows a short flickering and something that might be the undisplayed entry. Afterwards only the blank page with the background image is displayed. It is not an display issue, as all default entries are displayed properly as long as I do not start the synchronization. The device folder is fully operational, as I can see my Speed Dial entries on other devices.

    How can this be fixed?

  • Did this happen on going from 41.xxx to 42.xxx?

  • As far as I recall, it did not happen during a release change, but happened, when I deleted some device folders.

  • Now I also get on every new device an empty Speed Dial after signing in into my Opera account. Is there any way to get this fixed?
