I have to agree. On the SAME machine I have Opera as well as the new gaming Opera GX.
Sync took quite a while to happen. I can only see the current browser tabs even so I have over 8 Operas linked to this 1 account (since I have mostly 2 Opera browser per machine).
As for the tabs selection visible:
This screenshots is from the same machine, different Opera Version. One shows the tabs selection, the other one does not (but on both it was switched on before...)

RE: Customize Speed DialSuggestions and feature requests
What nobody did mention:
When you add the page to bookmarks (This could even be via your favourite button adding to Speed dial page!), you have the option to select a tumbnail picture of your choice!
The available pictures are the ones that are available on the website. It even includes a miniature view of the website.
RE: Auto hide tool bar.Suggestions and feature requests
@leocg I guess he is referring to the bookmarks bar, which you can hide or show, but Autohide is not an option (I am also a bit annoyed by that, because hiding is easy, but un-hiding... you need to go into the setting (and if there is a shortcut, I cannot remember it when I need it...). It would be good to have the menu item also visible when you right click in the address bar.
RE: Remove sync data from a remote computerSynchronization
I know the meaning of backup
Since I had several chrashed harddrives and even a backup was corrupt I am kind of anal now about backing up or doing operations which I know might lead to data loss.
I am probably one of the few person to have e-mails dating back to 1998. I still miss my Eudora from back then. E-Mail systems from today still don`t measure up to it. The Bat is the only one coming close (Came here on the search for info about Opera Mail), but I see a lot of corruption going on in TheBat an none working filters... makes me nervous...
It is fascinating when I was writing to my brother back and forth and how proud he was to have a 250MB Harddrive or how fascinated I was by the ZIP disk with 100MB memory capacity (Never trusted CDs) :-)))
RE: delete old sync'ed devicesSynchronization
Maybe you missunderstood:
For example under (I use the German version, so I hope the translation is right):
Bookmarks - Speedials - Other Speedial entries
There I have a list of PCs.
Some have the same name (I know I can rename them). But if I delete one of these "other" Speeddial device folders: How can I get those back?
RE: My Opera cloud bookmarks GONESynchronization
I think the "old" bookmarks (Up to version 12.xx) are actually gone. They ran the servers for some time but I believe it has been shut down... The "new" bookmarks are on a different server/ another protocol and incompatible.
One way I dealt with it:
Normally you have the bookmarks not only online but also on a computer (where it was synced to with the old browser). Simply find the bookmarks there and import them into the new Opera. Now you will have your bookmarks back and they will sync again.
HOWEVER, what is really annoying:
There used to be (not sure about the name) a field additional to the website name where one could put extra comments or keywords. This field is no longer in the new Opera. So all information there is lost.
As workaround: Save the old bookmarks as a html page. In this was you can put a link in speeddial to your old bookmarks and simply use the page search to get to the information needed.
