My Speed dials suddenly deleted

    The problem of Missing Speed dials!

    I left my computer for about an hour, came back and
    my speed dial was gone. Only thing left was four
    speed dial folders.

    Also, when clicking on the heart in the sidepanel
    nothing happened.

    I closed Opera and still the same with my
    speeddial but now I could see my bookmarks.
    I was able to copy my speeddial from
    "Other Speeddials."

  • Same with my Opera.
    Installation for USB

  • Hello everyone! I'm having this same problem since yesterday.

    I upgraded the browser on my main machine to version 62.0.3331.72, and upon completion I was greeted with a virtually empty speed dial: of the 20+ folders I had, only one appears, with less than 5 entries on it. I looked everywhere I could, even in the bookmarks trash, but those folders practically vanished. To my comfort, all my other speed dials and bookmarks appear intact; but they all reflect this machine's "barren" status, including the Opera Sync page.

    Thankfully, I have a secondary Ubuntu machine that hasn't synced yet, so I imagine a copy of my old speed dial should be there. Regardless, I'd rather wait for an official pronunciation on this issue before trying to restore anything to this machine.

  • Hi,

    Same here: all my speed dial bookmarks are gone, except for one folder holding 4 bookmarks.
    I'm now on Opera 62.0.3331.72.
    Any way to get them back?


  • We are currently trying to look into this issue. We have not been able to reproduce it in our environment so far. I hope you could help us with investigating it. Could you do following things:

    1. Check if your synced data is visible there
    2. Check if you see any errors/warnings on opera://sync-internals
    3. Check 'Sync Node Browser' tab on opera://sync-internals
    4. Give us information if you have any extensions installed

  • @mgeffro Interesting. Both my speed dials are there, even though I don't sync them.
    Thanks anyway.
    However, I suspect that's the recreated speed dial, not the lost one.

    1. No, only the speed dials of my other two devices
    2. The only "error" tag is: "Auth Error - OK since browser startup", so I guess the answer is "no".
    3. Here I do see an entry for the device with the cleared speed dial, but it only contains the one remaining folder including four bookmarks.
    4. Strange, I can no longer access the Extensions page... I do know that I have Google Translator and extensions installed
    5. Opera WIN 62.0.3331.72 (Opera OPR/62.0.3331.72) channel(Stable)

    I managed to recuperate my speed dial from my other device which I disconnected from the network before opening Opera, so on the short term the problem is solved. I haven't recreated my speed dial on the affected device yet, so I can still test if needed...

    Security researcher Sam Jadali has found that some Firefox and Chrome extensions collect user data and sell it to third parties. The type of data collection may also make it possible to identify specific individuals.

    These questionable extensions include

    • Hover Zoom
    • SpeakIt!
    • SuperZoom,
    • Helper
    • FairShare Unlock
    • PanelMeasurement.

    Google and Mozilla have now blocked these extensions. Maybe there's some connection with your situation.

    Links on this subject:

  • Current status is that this issue should no longer appear, unfortunately removed Speed Dials are gone. 😞

  • Browser Opera history in brief:
    • The inability to compete with the help of its own engine led to the transition to the Chrome engine.
    • The inability to ensure continuity with the browser versions on the old engine led to the abandonment of support for everything that happened before.
    • The inability to nevertheless continue to do its work led to the sale of the company to a Chinese firm.
    • Now we have come to the inability to even adjust the process of synchronization and saving user bookmarks and Speed Dials on their local computers.

    I have been using Opera for over 10 years, and all these ten years I have been watching all this with my own eyes. It is sad. Very sad.

  • @gmiazga

    I used Opera for a long time.
    It is a pity that because of such a mistake will have to give it up forever.
