I made this a long time ago but hopefully this should still work. You will need to inspect element and replace the entire HTML with this:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
<img src="INSERT IMG URL">
<!-- After making the thumbnail, switch the current thumbnail to the generic thumbnail (the one with the website name in it) and save it. This will clear the current thumbnail, allowing the new custom one to appear. After saving the generic thumbnail, open the thumbnail editor again and go through the options to find your newly made custom thumbnail! --!>
Honestly it's a bit overkill, but I find it's the most effective and simplest way to get those custom images in. You will need to host the images online (like imgur) due to security reasons browsers won't load local images on websites on the internet.
I would also love this as well. I used FVD Speed Dial every day in Google Chrome. Opera doesn't need to mimic every feature of FVD, but at least give a bit more customisable features. The auto-generated text logos are really an eyesore, as a gaming browser, aesthetics matter a great deal.

My mother used my laptop yesterday to check facebook and all of a sudden my speed dial page doesn't show any speed dial links. They still exist, I can see them in my favourites, I just can't see them on the speed dial page. Are there any keyboard shortcuts she may have pressed to hide them? She didn't mess around with any settings as far as I'm aware.
My Speed Dial entries also disappeared today, but they are there on the Bookmarks page. (Could this be due to a bug in the most recent Opera update.) Who can tell us how to get the Speed Dial entries back again? Thanks a lot.
Well, just as mysteriously as they disappeared, they re-appeared, as if by magic! All's well that ends well
Interesting alternative, however I agree that the sidebar should have never been removed from the speed dial. Its infuriating that Opera forces users to always have a sidebar that is completely useless while web browsing, but remove it in the one place that makes sense.
I would also go as far as to advocate that turning on the sidebar after every update regardless of settings is not serviceable. I cannot count the amount of service calls I get about turning it off on the countless machines i've deployed Opera to.
@ugcheleuce said in Opera start page: User configurable web site instead of speed dial:
@leocg No, I remember quite clearly that until my recent re-installation, whenever I opened a new tab, the FVD speed dial was displayed.
That's the case if you're using Opera Developer (v59). Opera blocks FVD Speed Dial's new tab behavior on purpose so that it can't override Opera's speed dial page that has ads/promotions on it. Opera also removed the extension from the addon site. You're basically SOL now.
If you have the nex file (which you can find at web.archive.org), you can still install the extension by dragging the file into Opera. The new tab behavior will still work fine in Opera Stable (57) and Opera Beta (58). But from 59 onward, the new tab behavior won't work. You'll still be able to make FVD Speed Dial load up at startup though by setting Opera to open this specific page chrome-extension://pncpfofkienlinhfknpmgjnjhdoclfhh/newtab.html.
Note though that the real FVD Speed Dial is the Chrome version and that's never worked right in Opera as Opera already blocked its behavior. The Opera version was just to work around Opera's blocking of it.
However, I think this thread is about something different and @sgunhouse answered the OP's question correctly.
sry...I had experimental flag enabled, so I couldn't move bookmarks in Opera native bookmarks manager
that's why I recommended extension
Why can't you multi select your folders and move them?
box-selection (click with mouse in one corner and draw a box)
or selecting each folder with check box
