RE: wrong countryOpera for Windows
@leocg I have the same issue to a point: Outlook for the Web has ads on the right, and it's the only site that's wrong -- my main email is English, but the ads were showing Swedish. I did go into my Microsoft profile and change my language from default to English, but I've not had to do that before and I've been doing this for longer than I care to remember. Also, Safari and Firefox were okay. No VPN. IP okay.
RE: HIstory date is incorrectOpera for computers
Opera 63.0.3368.107 for Mac has an issue with putting the wrong date on history items. For example, as I type this it is 20:46 Eastern on Tuesday, but a sites I went to from around midnight to 19:47 show yesterday (Monday).
I have just now updated to 64.x but have not restarted Opera, so I probably won't know any new news until Wednesday evening. Also, Opera has done this for many versions now -- I just didn't bother to report it.
Sync brings in old itemsSynchronization
I freelanced for a while at a company in 2016 and 2017, synced my Mac's Opera to my iPhone, and used Opera (mostly) ever since. My Mac was stolen in July 2019, and I'm using an old Win7 PC to get by. I set up Opera on Win7 and used it for a few weeks (call me User1) with fresh speed dial, bookmarks, etc. Yesterday I enabled another Win user ID (User2) and turned on sync . . . and what showed up in User2 was the old info from my freelance days. The info in User1 remains okay.
Is there a way to force settings of User1 to be the King of All Settings? If not, there should be.
NEVER MIND, FOUND IT: Speed Dials, for example, are under Bookmarks > Other Speed Dials > ComputerName. Nonetheless, I think we should have a way to damn the torpedoes and sync "for real" where new machine truly takes on the characteristics of the old.
Some passwords did not sync, however, yet some did.
RE: Synchronize old browsers?Synchronization
What would be a good idea is to present some choices, like "a overwrites b", "b overwrites a", and of course, "merge". When I installed a second machine, the lack of choice made me nervous that the new install with default speed dial might overwrite my data.
RE: Video "Blackouts" after upgrading OperaOpera for Windows
I have Opera's latest (as of today) on an old Win 7 machine -- my MacBook Pro was stolen -- and the Marmoset pages are fine for me. That said, I used to get audio-only videos from CNET, but now they work. Netflix, Hulu, and and the others work fine (other than the buffering on this ancient Toshiba). Maybe a fresh install is in order. My PC was loaned to me and I formatted it from scratch.
Getting a new tab to switch to itOpera for Mac
Seems like this should be an obvious preference somewhere, but I'm not seeing it: When I right-click a link and choose "open in new tab" I would like Opera to show me that tab without having to select it. Am I missing a preference? I'm on v46, if it matters.
