Opera Sync in Browser does not work anymore. and then it freezes...

  • Opera Sync in Browser does not work anymore in Windows 10 Pro.

    It cant login again to sync. upper right symbol stays in yellow, and after a while, opera freezes.

    this is new since my last opera update yesterday!

    Also, i cant login via https://auth.opera.com/account/v2/desktop/login/loading

    i only can see the blue loading circle..

    i checked and updated my firewall settings, and i did an manual update of the browser again.

    no matter what i do, opera freezes after 1-2 mins.

    nothing helps here.

    Windows 1909 Build: 18363.657
    Opera 67.0.3575.53

    i remember that this problem was some time ago...but after an update-fix it worked again...
    what to do?

    Thanks,
    Cheers

  • Update: with Developer Build 68.0.3616.0

    No Problems at all!

    We need an fix for this!

    Thanks

  • Same thing here.

    Opera Stable 67.0.3575.53
    Windows 7 SP1 64-bit

    No matter what I do, with Sync enabled Opera freezes after about 20-30 seconds, giving me no other choice then force close Opera.

    So I temporarily signed out of Sync and things work just fine for now.

    Please fix this! 🙏

  • The same problem on Opera Stable 67.0.3575.79 and Win 10.

    By the way two days ago I had the same problem on Mac OS but I have solved the problem by updating to a new version (after it appeared). I made all operations very quickly... (:

  • I'm having constant crashing in Opera and GX and since I can't access sync due to the crashes, I'll back up, uninstall and then reinstall.
    I'm only going to restore the bookmarks and leave sync off for now.

  • Same here, on Windows 10, Opera version 68.0 . Please fix this, guys.

  • I had this problem (of crashing opera and GX too) on many computers (home and work) since months .. just today I realized the opera sync is the problem! 🤕
    Please fix the Opera sync crash or give us a workaround to fix it.
    Thanks a lot in advance.

  • I had to format my HD and install everything all over again, now Opera simply crashes after a couple minutes of use. (Win7 x64 - same OS I had before)

  • A couple of weeks ago I realized that "Hardware Acceleration" was taking Opera down.
    Since I turned it off, even Opera Sync is working without any problems.

    I'm running Windows 7 SP1 64-bit on both my desktop and laptop with latest Opera 68.

    To all of you having crashes and freezing sync, I think it is worth a try to disable hardware acceleration.

    If it already is, good luck...

  • yes, it freezes for awhile when first sync, just leave the it along , it would get through eventually

    Tried that, and it worked. Also, I did what @cgigate said, leave for a while and it both imported my bookmarks and synced 🙂
    I can use Opera again!

  • @spborges74 so glad it helped!

    Enjoy Opera! ☺

  • Yes. Windows 7 Opera my.

  • @malutka yes? What?

  • What appears to be the same issue just started happening for me today after updating to 69.0.3686.49. After 10 seconds, Opera becomes unresponsive, crashes, and then auto restarts. The crash log that pops up after each restart is empty. After 5 restarts I was able to slowly get into settings and log out, stabilizing Opera. Now I can surf the web again logged in under my account, but sync is still off. This happens on both Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04 for me. And my hardware accel is off.

  • The most recent update, 69.0.3686.57, fixed this issue for me.

  • I've been trying every time an update is made, but the crashes during syncing have not improved.
    The same thing happens when hardware acceleration is turned off.
    Updated to version 69.0.3686.57, no improvement.
    The OS is Win10

  • Still no improvement on the latest Opera 69.0.3686.77

    I have also created a new Opera account to see if the problem persists... it does! Although it worked for a wile at the beginning, but after several minutes Opera crashed anyway.

    Luckily managed to sign out of Sync (had to try a gazillion times, since Opera crashed when trying to click the "final" OK button)

    Are you Opera Developers even working on that issue? Doesn't seem so.

    I am very disappointed and sad. Always been loyal to Opera since Version 6 on WinXP back in the past.
    Nevertheless I will stay with Opera, even without Sync.

    I really hope, you won't turn Opera in something like Chrome or Edge in future...

  • @celadyn I totally agree with you! Sync still makes the browser crash!
    It would be expected that this problem was solved by now!!! Opera's also my primary browser and wouldn't want to have to change because of this.
    The Developers should really read our complaints 😠
