Sync tabs icon missing on sidebar

  • I noticed recently that when I start Opera the Sync Tabs icon is missing and then randomly after some time it shows up again (I can't figure out now when that happens).
    I think that it started to happened after update to Opera 50 (first, stable version). I'm always logged in to my sync account and tabs from different devices are present in Tabs Menu (currently open tabs, recently closed, sync tabs).

    Fresh start: After some time when icon "magically" appears again:

    Picking tabs from different devices from Tabs Menu is (in my case) really inconvenient.
    I would like to know if it's a bug or a feature (I hope it's bug that's really easy to fix)

    Current system info:

    Version: 50.0.2762.67 (PGO), Stable, PL
    System: Windows 10 64-bit

  • BUMP!

    The same problem, still not fixed for Opera 52.0.2871.97 Stable.

  • @alexsvrv Do you have sync enabled on other devices? Do you have opened tabs on one of them at least?

  • @leocg Yes, of course, I do. I'm not an idiot. I have exactly the same problem as @szczepanson described.
    I still can access my sync tabs via the Tab menu in the upper right corner where recently closed and currently opened tabs are listed as well. Just the icon on the sidebar is missing most of the time, so I can't access the fullscreen Tabs page.

  • @alexsvrv Can you access it through opera://activity?

  • @leocg Actually, I can. Thanks! I was looking for a command like this, but couldn't find one.
    However, the icon is still missing even when the page is opened. Here is a screenshot:

  • @szczepanson I have the same trouble here since version 50.
    There is 53.0.2907.37 and problem is still here. VERY annoying

  • Yep, same thing here too.
    Icon missing from the sidebar.
    Can see some, but not all tabs from my opera mobile, on opera://activity

  • Did you check the sidebar menu and see if it was disabled? I don't sync tabs so mine is always disabled, but even if you do sync tabs you could hide the icon.

    Same problem on windows.
    I login in my opera's sync account, but my sync tabs disappear from sidebar.
    But I can open the tab by enter opera://activity
