same problem!! Wow really Opera Developers...this issue has carried on with no solution for multiple months now. It appears that any and all "help" or "guidance" that was attempted at by the developers has been abandoned without justification or reasoning.
If the spectacular idea you all had to make our lives easier is only making it exceedingly frustrating and time consuming trying to find a solution without having to reset and lose everything we thought was going to be protected, I have a suggestion for you.
a) Take it down until you can fix it.
b)Put up some kind of warning or info when you have the decision to even make a sync paraphrase or not.
c)SAY SOMETHING TO THOSE OF US WHO OBVIOUSLY ARE TRYING TO REACH OUT FOR HELP!!!!!!
