Yet another major problem with sync

  • Somehow my tablet's speed dial had gotten duplicated after the last time I reset my sync data. I deleted one of the copies only to find out that Opera Android would crash as soon as I opened it making it completely unusable! The only thing I could do to fix this annoyance was to quick copy what I could of my Android Speed Dial to the PC Speed Dial then wipe Opera Android's data and reset my sync data (for the umpteenth time this year 😡 ) forcing me to start from scratch thus, losing all my offline pages and Android history. In fact, my Android history has NEVER synced since Opera 40 something (can't remember exactly when) and sync.opera.com shows only random items some going as far back as an year ago and only a handful of actual recent history links. This is WORSE than Firefox's sync. At least with FF, everything got synced even if it did have the same bug as Opera sync with duplicating bookmarks. Sync was the ONLY reason why I started using Opera in the first place since Firefox changed their sync system making it incompatible with the version of FF I had been refusing to upgrade to due to their hideous Australlis UI and Dolphin Browser had stopped supporting their FF sync extension which no longer works. Because Opera has been having sooooo many problems with sync that the devs obviously refuse to fix I have been FORCED to upgrade FF inspite of my dislike of the UI and removal of most extensions. For the devs to ignore our complaints and not fix sync is totally unacceptable. 😡
