  • The Start Page Icon just to the right of the Reload icon does not bring up the defined Start Page. It brings up the Speed Dial page. Not necessarily the same thing.

  • @GPowell So everything is working as should. Opera doesn't support (custom) start page(s), so the start page button opens Opera's own start page, that includes the speed dials.

  • @leocg
    You are wrong. You do support custom Start Pages and always have.

    Settings – Advanced – Privacy Security – On Startup – Open a specific page or set of pages

    The page I use is GroupSpeedDial chrome-extension://imfeikbeimbfpmgfkkmjekabdehiiajc/dial.html

  • @GPowell said in Start Page Icon does not work:

    On Startup

    'on startup' is a keyword here. Start page icon doesn't mean the browser startup.

    Edit: but 'start page' button sounds a bit confusing because on the sidebar the same button is called 'speed dial'.

  • Wrong. That icon only shows when you are on a page other than the home page. It is like a button to return you to the home page. Which in most cases is the Speed dial page unless one has defined a different Start Page in the settings.

  • @GPowell That's not start page. That setting allows you to set a page or a group of pages to be opened when Opera starts.
