OMG!!! I hate computers
finally I was able to update to opera 44.02.25 stable on my LINUX machine
that allowed me to synch
and copy my bookmarks
so they desired effect has been achieved after 4 weeks of frustration!!!
the beauty of opera is your can SYNCH and keep bookmarks and speed dials
now using clonzilla i can clone the drive for future safetykeeping in about 15 mins
How can I copy it?
In 'other speed dials', go to the folder with the name of the device you want to copy from and select the items you would like to copy by clicking on the 'check' icon. Then right click and select 'copy' or use Ctrl + C.
Go to the 'speed dial' folder in the same place, right click and select 'paste'. Or use Ctrl + V.
what I mean is under task manager you see 3-4 sessions of opera
This is normal and this is how Chromium works.
when you go to un-install software;
you see several version of opera installed, and I am hesitant to un-install
Most probably you will uninstall your current version too.
Just try removing them from the list.
