Stash speed dial icons

  • Hello

    O.S. vs.: Win XP-SP3/Win 7/Win 8.1
    Opera vs.: 29.0

    Can anyone explain what happened with all my/our speeddial stash icons in the new Opera?
    Once these were small pictures (snapshots/thumbnails) of sites that were stored in the stash.
    Now, with these new versions of Opera, these have changed in some kind of title of the site that is stored.
    This doesn't work for me because I'm storing all my eBay pages in the speeddial system of the stash.
    This also doesn't work at the schools where I am a sys.op.

    NThey all appear as orange blocks with the title: ebay.com and I can't find my favorite eBay shops anymore.
    Please give me/us back these small snapshots/thumbnails so we can use Opera the way we always did.

    Going from 12.16 to 15.xx was a hell for me (and the schools were I am an sys.op., we used it on many computers). Now everyone is used to the 'new' browser(engine) from 12.16 to 15.xx, Opera changes the interface again in version 25.xx and higher.
    At least give me (and us, at the schools) a choice to export these stash adresses to a file because cloud doesn't work for me/us.
    With copy and paste I/we now have to copy hundreds of links to a text file of another browser.

    They still exist. Go to the webpage of the speed dial entry you wish to change, click the red heart icon to the right of the address bar, and use the arrow buttons in the middle of the popup to cycle what will be displayed on the thumbnail. This works the same for bookmarks and speed dial entries.

    You can either copy you bookmarks storage file from your profile folder or use an extension that allows exporting of bookmarks.

  • lando242, thanks for your answer and solution.

    Now I have a BIG problem because of that Opera has changed the rules..
    Every speed dial entry I have to change and some thumbnails of sites won't even show up where they did before. Mostly I find pre-loads of pictures that appear on the entry site.
    This means (for me) with an average of 8 mouseclicks per speed dial, I have to change a few 100's of dials.

    Imagine when, in the future, will they change the rules again and do I have to change these things again, because someone at Opera has some new ideas...

    Working with Opera isn't the fun that I had, working with it in the past years... (pre- vs. 25.x)
