  • I had just got back to Opera from Firefox. I just got so frustrated with FF as all my speed dials and everything was wiped out when there were upgrades. And, because of losing all my data so many times, I simply deleted it and loaded Opera. I had to sit and load up all my details and links for hours. I had all the speed dials set and everything was okay. But the last two days I have once again been tearing out my hair as all my speed dials keep disappearing! I have looked at all the settings, and I can't see anything amiss? The speed dial icon is on the sidebar. I have gone to reset several times, and then it comes back up. After a few sessions of use, I find its gone. I am Not A Lover of Google Chrome, so will not want that as a browser. How can I get this sorted out, please? Looking forward to seeing your helping replies, as I need to keep my links handy.!

  • @toeknee-lightmuncher Any clues? When does it happen, which speed dials, any extensions (particularly something related to bookmarks)?

  • @sgunhouse thank you for taking an interest. It has happened within a day of using Opera. The speed dial just didn't happen (see image of where the speed dial links should be). I have disabled all the extensions, then slowly enabled each one. Nothing changed, speed dial has not returned. Four times I did a Reset in the settings. I am sure no bookmarks have resulted in this problem. Also, here are images that hopefully will tell part of the story. I can't think of what the whole process was that made it disappear.
    The version of Opera I downloaded on the 25/6/2021 version 77.0.4054.146. It may be a possibility that the update to 77.0.4054.172 could be the problem?? I am unsure. Sorry to be vague, I live on morphine and I can't always remember the step-by-step procedures.

  • @toeknee-lightmuncher I did some work on the start page on the systems settings. And have the speed dials back! Thank you for your assistance. Here are my settings which changed the outcome.
