Opera 23 stole my bookmarks

  • Today I needed to reinstall my Opera 12 because is started to behave strangely. So thought I might try out the new Opera next or 23.. whatever.

    So I imported my bookmarks with opera link and after some time I figured out that the new Opera is worse in every possible way and wanted to change back.

    But now my opera link page is completely blank. There are no bookmarks synced any more.

    I still have them in the shitty 23 version but cant find a way to export them. My last backup is pretty old so I would lose a lot of bookmarks.

    Please help!

  • The new Opera also took all my passwords as hostage! What the f is this?

    If I synch with my cloud its not supposed to delete everything!

  • Opera Blink doesn't sync with Opera Presto. However, it imports some data from Presto install.

    Do you still have your Opera 12's profile folder?

  • And why does it delete my bookmarks in opera link?

    No I don't have the folder any more. Trying to recover something right know.

    Trusting Opera to save some files in the cloud for a few minutes was stupid.

  • And why does it delete my bookmarks in opera link?

    Don't know. What exactly did you do? Have you deleted your bookmarks in Opera 12 while Link was on?

  • Here are my actions step by step:

    1. Install Opera 23
    2. Import bookmarks and passwords
    3. See that there is no sidebar
    4. Deinstall Opera 12
    5. Install Opera 12
    6. Try to import Stuff again
    7. All gone
  • "Trusting ... the cloud ... was stupid"

    I agree. Sorry you had this problem, but when it comes to backups, always do it manually. Never trust automatic backup systems.

  • And if it's important stuff that is difficult to, or you can never replace, then make more than one backup in different places.

  • Don't use Opera Link, at this time it has bugs while syncing between browsers!

  • Firefox with 15 add-ons is set up and will from now on be my new main browser.

    Lets hope that some day I can export the bookmarks. That will be the last time I use Opera.
    It makes me sad after all these years. All the times I had to defend my choice of browser on several occasions. To me opera was superior to all the alternatives, but now it all went down the drain.

    12 is outdated and 23 is a joke.

    And people should also remember that Link is not a backup toll but a sync one.

    How did you do step 6? Just by enabling Link?

  • Yes. Logged in to my profile and waited for my stuff to arrive.

    After some time I checked my link page and there was only the opera folder that comes with every new installation.
