@burnout426 Well Burnout, I have been all around the park with this crap, loaded unloaded,updated, recovered from April 25 and it seems when I log in to "Sync" is when my speed dials screw up!
I am afraid I will just be stuck on this version without sync until Opera sends me confirmation it is fixed! Thanks for the input!
@SilentHugOfDoom As a temp solution, I am using a chrome plugin called Momentum.
This is doing the job for now however it is not taking over the new tab page. For this, I need to click the extension icon in the toolbar. It should work for your use case for now.
@nquateman, you can move it to another computer, but the results are going to be the same. Opera's become severely broken and buggy and I don't know why. I have multiple computers with Opera installed, and they all act the same exact way. The Opera team needs to figure out what's going on, or start building the browser from the ground up on their own again instead of using Chromium.
@Repter As I see on the extension support page in the Chrome Store, the developer knows about the problem in Opera. You need to wait for the next version of the extension in the Chrome Store or use the old version.
@joes1340 While it isn't a "one-click" solution, it also isn't very difficult. (Assuming you don't have 100 tabs open.) Just click the bookmark "heart" on the 1st tab that you want to bookmark. Select "Speed Dial". Beside it will be a small folder icon with a plus sign in it. Click that, and create your new folder with whatever name you want, then click "Done". Then switch to each tab, click its heart, and select done. They should all now be in that speed-dial folder.
Wait a sec . . . it might be "one-click" after all. I just noticed: If I go to the very top title bar, and right-click, I get a menu item of "Save all tabs as Speed Dial folder." It will be called "Folder". Click the "three dots" menu on the Speed Dial folder and hit "Edit" to call it anything you want. So, two clicks.
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.
