The Synchronization Is Not Working Topic - Opera for Desktops

  • The latest update seems to bring a new Synchronization feature with QR on Android. I don't mind if it's optional, I do mind when it interferes with my old Opera account to synchronize my data. Now it looks like this all the time:

    alt text

    Clicking "Sign in" brings me to the Opera Synchronization page:

    alt text

    Which gives me the option to create a new account using email address, or use the new QR sync feature. Nothing about my old Opera account or login.

    Where is my old sync data with my Opera account? Did it just vanish?

  • @khuongn The first option is for you to use your regular Opera account.

  • @leocg Oh thanks! I thought it was asking me to create a new account with email. Entering the same email as my opera account let me sync.

  • This post is deleted!
  • Hi, today my Opera has been updated to version 71. With this update sync has stopped working. I got something like this alt text When I click "Sign in" the page opens, but it is completely blank, nothing is on it. How to fix it?

  • @leocg This new Synchronization totally DELETED my Speed Dial bookmarks!!! It left a few, but the majority of them are totally gone, the Folders have 1-2 bookmarks left in them while the rest also disappeared. What the hell? Where are all my Speed Dial bookmarks?
    Is there a way to restore them? Even when I check the online sync account, they are not there. I am not happy. At least my regular bookmarks look the same but the previous sync has never touched my Speed Dial, everything worked fine - now most are gone 😢

    Anything can be done?

  • Past few days, My opera browser unable to sync my passwords and bookmarks any help ??

  • Opera not allowing me to sync as before, it just stopped working and now ESET flags it up as a security threat and just lets the sign in hang and not go anywhere. I am using Opera version 72.0.3815.148

  • @leocg Me descargue Opera touch en mi android y quiero vincular la opción de "My Flow" pero en el navegador no me sale la opcion para escanear el codigo QR ¿Que hago?

  • @Yeikellobando English here please.

  • Hi everyone! I have some troubles with the process of synchronization of my data.
    I signed up on my PC(windows OS), and then, I do the same on my laptop (windows OS). And when I open new tabs in my PC it isn't synchronizate, and it doesn't display in my history on my laptop.
    Although, I set up my settings and my browser have to save everything, except passwords. So, what's the trouble? Why is my synchronization unsuccessful?

  • @RegexBrave Opened tabs from other installations can be found by clicking on the tabs icon on sidebar or by typing opera://activity in address bar. You don't see them there?

    And you will see history from other installations when you start typing something on the address bar.

  • OPera Dev74.0.3890.0 Sync not working,QR not support 74.0
    The man-machine verification picture has been verified and the sync data option is not sent; start the sync service. Quick fix

  • @dudodedudu I still hope that one day Opera can sync tabs in the similar way as old good Xmarks did.

  • @leocg in my case, when i click "Choose a login method" > "use mail address", the next step is "Let's start with an email" > and "Create account" > and when i add my mail, says "Create account" and "Password" and "retype Password". Is this a new way to log in? It needs to retype my password again?

  • @panosv Nope, that's the original way to login.

    But why are you creating a new account?

  • Opera v73 soes not sync on my computer.
    It does on other computers and even on mobile.
    It all started after formatting my pc.
    Before, it would just sync correctly passwords, tabs, history, etc...
    Now, when logged in, nothing syncs, no folder for my device is created on the bookmarks, and most interesting, when closing the navigator, the session is lost and a login is required to access the account again.
    I'm almost sure I could fix it by deleting my device called PIPOR-PC (main computer) and resync again, but, opera doesn't allow me to delete any device, only the bookmars of each device.

    How can I erase or unregister a device for good, so then I can resync as if it was a brand new device?.
