open all synced tabs after reinstall? (opera for android)

  • After reinstall and loged-in for syncing, no previous tabs have been opened. I find my previous tabs only when I use the tab-button and then, in the lower left edge, there is a button for the synced tabs. But I have to open all the tabs tab by tab (around 100...) 🙁
    On https://www.sync.opera.com/ I found my tablet twice in the part "open tabs" and every new tab will show up there immediately in both parts!
    In the part "speed dial" it is the same, 2 times my device! And I have to import them by myself, for speed dial, it was easy done via speed dial menu.
    In the "devices" part is only 1 tablet listed. (I disconnected my pc). For the rest of syncing, everything is fine in opera and on https://www.sync.opera.com
    What is going wrong?

  • @riemie2 Nothing, this is how things were designed to work. You can see your opened tabs from another devices but they will not automatically open in the current one.

  • but it is the same device!

  • @riemie2 Device, installation, whatever.

  • I don't understand. So it is normal behaviour that syncing on the same device will never sync open tabs and speed dial?
    I can't believe.
    Why does https://www.sync.opera.com/tabs tells me, I have actually 104 tabs open but only 9 of them, those i open after reinstall, are shown in opera. (and you find those 9 tabs in the list of those 104, like every next tab a will open too.)

  • @riemie2 Yes,, that's the expected behavior. You can see them but they will not be automatically opened or filled.

  • So i logged-in for syncing from my pc-opera again. And here it looks different.
    When i open "tabs" it shows my open tabs on my pc and has two sections for my tablet.
    One section is listing those 5 tabs, which are actually (really) open on my tablet. The second section (names exactly the same) shows the open tabs before i reinstalled opera on the tablet.

    In https://www.sync.opera.com/tabs i find the same sections, but those 2 sections for the tablet show exactly the same tabs, and it is as an addition from what i see now here on my pc (new install and former install mixed together and doubled)

    There is definitely something going wrong.
