New Speed Dial links are not persitent

  • When I click Add to Speed Dial to save a link to the current web page, the link gets saved to my Speed Dial page of other existing saved links. However I started noticing the saved Speed Dial links were not remaining persistent across Opera restarts. About a month ago I first noticed it and though that maybe I did not actually successfully click Add to Speed Dial and the links were just not getting saved. I now just tried to save a link to Speed Dial and verified its existence and even moved it to other similar links for that web genre. Upon cycling Opera the new link on the Speed Dial page is gone from its new location and nor is it at the bottom right of all the existing links. This process used to work flawlessly as I have about 30 links that persist across Opera restarts. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start to fix this issue?

  • What version of Opera?

    Are you using Opera Sync?

  • Not persisting through a restart ... sounds like the bookmarks file (actually called Favorites) is either locked or damaged. If you ran Opera as Admin about a month ago, the file could now be locked for your regular user account (as one possible cause).

  • @burnout426 Currently at 63.0.3368.107. I will restart Opera and be at 64.0.3417.92.

  • @sgunhouse I did not run Opera as admin while I made those changes. I don't think I've ever run Opera as admin!

  • @burnout426 And I'm not using Opera Sync.
