@mopw69 I am a little bit confused.
On this video it can be seen that you are first here: https://forums.opera.com/topic/31654/opera-forums-search-box-drop-down-list/14 (as I can see the fragment of that post). After typing "sync now" and clicking that search result you are taken to https://forums.opera.com/topic/30969/syncing-is-now-manual/1 (you can see the displayed topic changed). So... isn't that expected behaviour? Where's the issue?
@burnout426 Until the settings page changed in 55 it wasn't a problem, but yes it reverts to default setting on update. I renamed update file so I will now update manually but having to reset settings page to old style is a pain.
I tried turning off update in "tasks" didn't matter.
