Sync not working after OS reinstallSynchronization
To make things short. Latest stable build, reinstalled OS (Win 10 Pro x64 FCU). First thing, download my browser, try to sign in, and sync, it looks like I can log, but it won't sync anything at all. I go on the web, suddenly it show that I have ZERO, well, anything, passwords, bookmarks all gone. In the browser, it shows with a orange exclamation mark. Advanced Configuration for Sync - grayed out after I signed in and tried to check passwords too.
This is not the first time I was in this kind of situation. I had issues a few months ago, and had to reset a hundred passwords. Being somewhat reluctant with new OS installs, I backed up the Users folder, so I suppose I can restore some stuff.
Before going there, is there anything I can do? I mean, even if I restore the passwords, it looks that sync just won't work. !
RE: Control+tab or control+shift+tab crashes operaOpera for Windows
I opened tons of tabs (maybe 200) out of curiosity and tried crashing it but it seemed stable with Ctrl+Tab or Ctrl+Shift+Tab. Browsed some and didn't notice anything.
Maybe it's specific to some hardware config.
RE: Tabs stackingSuggestions and feature requests
I know the original post is quite old, but as somebody that grew with Opera since when you had to buy it (time flies doesn't it), tab stacking was one of the most useful features.
From time to time I raid the extensions to see if it's not done yet, and the only thing I can ever find is unmaintained wannabe extensions that don't come close to how it worked at all.
From what I understand not even Vivaldi's tab stacking works as it used to in Opera 12.
It's a shame that we lost this feature and after so many years, it didn't make a comeback. I assume most current Opera users are new and never seen it in action, or this topic would be way more popular.
Kindly consider bringing it back.

RE: Restore old passwords from Users/partition backup - possible?Synchronization
@zalex108 Thanks for the reply.
The Decryptor app works on the fresh OS install, but if I try to decode the old LoginData file (just replaced the new one for testing to see how it goes), it will only recover usernames. I am now in the process of converting the TIB file from Acronis to VHD and I will attempt to boot from it, or maybe use it on a VM as a HDD. I do have a feeling that it will require the passphrase and it will only give the usernames again, and while I do suspect what the passphrase was, I am hardly sure about that.
Thing is, we're on the net, and people are used to be able to recover things they forgot with a simple authentication code sent to their email, or even a 2 step authentication on the phone. There should be no way in hell 100 passwords could disappear in smoke just like that. I relied on the Opera account to remember stuff so I don't have to, outside the essentials. I mean, who would remember 100 passwords, each 10-15 characters, all with numbers and capitals?
TL;Dr/suggestion: People should be able to recover their stuff if they forget things like the passphrase. once their identity is proven with a confirmation email and so on, they should be able to download/sync/import the passwords.
Restore old passwords from Users/partition backup - possible?Synchronization
I upgraded my PC and reinstalled a fresh Windows 10 and pretty much lost the passphrase/password to the old Opera account. I assumed I'll just reset the password and all will be fine, but I basically lost everything as it required me to "reset sysc data" or something on the website after I changed the passoword.
Luckily enough I made a rar from the whole Users folder before syncing and also an Acronis backup of the whole OS partition. Is there any way I can recover my stuff, primarily the hundreds of passwords?

And it happened again...
RE: The new "Show Password" dialogueFuture releases
As things have changed again, I thought I would drop and give an update.
- the --disable-features=CredUIPromptForWindowsCredentials" flag stopped working for me, sadly
- the new and "improved" dialogue shows now and all options work for me (if I enter my Microsoft account email as "user name", not the actual user name, including PIN
- this dialogue box always has more steps t ogo through compared to the old method
Anyway, happy it's fixed.

What's with Facebook, Ali Express, Booking Amazon and so on? If I need a site, I will add it, I don't need this cheap advertising in my browser.
Stop being greedy. Look at how being greedy ends in the latest EA vs Gamers debacle, it ends in 3 Billion stock loss.
This happened twice already the last week. And it happened in the past as well.
Stop it. There are MANY free browsers to choose from, remember that, Opera.
