It seems this issue was solved when I turned off the "hand off" feature on the iPad.

How to unsync iPad and computerOpera for Mac
Using Opera browser but I have not signed in on the Mac to sync .
When the ipad is open and Safari is open (on the iPad), I get a small Opera icon in the upper left corner of the computer screen signifying some sort of syncing.
I have deleted Opera from the iPad.
How to stop this?
If there was a way to include a screenshot, I would.
