Sync Failure Between Macs

  • Hi, I'm fairly new to Opera. Maybe using a month. Just got around to adding to other devices this morning.

    Synchronization is not working between iMac (original install) and MBPro. Strangely, I have an Other Speed Dials in bookmarks that appears to work on MB Pro and iMac. And bookmarks are synced or my automatic import when making Opera default browser on MB Pro was remarkably close to iMac (which could be because Safari was syncing bookmarks before). History seems to be working too. But my tabs and settings and preferences and extensions are not synced. They should be synced, right?

    When I first logged into sync.opera.com I got a 502 error a few refreshes but the summary data there now looks right.

    I did Reset Sync data there twice this morning but I still don't think it is working right.

    I appreciate any advice you have here.

    ps I have iOS synced speed dial and tabs. I take it history does not sync

  • They should be synced, right?

    Extensions aren't synced. Settings should be but probably not all of them and opened tabs should be synced.

    You will find those on the tabs menu.

  • To know what to copy (and to backup), go to:

    • OMenu > Help > Find Solutions >> Backup your Opera files

    Could be a workaround using external sync services, USB or Lan.

    Do not copy full profile to another computer if syncronized :rolleyes: :lol: before, could be problems detecting the new one as the original one, even worst, losing your sync data.

    (Editing Prefs file > Sync probably fix the problem, didn't tested)

  • I can sync tabs between my work PC and home Mac. However, my tabs are not syncing to my Android phone.

  • Welcome to Opera's forums @Alnetloc!

    I'm not sure if that option is implemented or depends on the version, Mobile / Mini.
