Default Speed Dial Thumbnails

  • I accidentally changed my YouTube speed dial bookmark icon while playing around with bookmarks. When I try to change it back, all I get is the original YouTube icon, and the latest YouTube icon. The Opera GX custom version is missing and I don't know how to get it back. Help...?

  • Goto the URL opera://about and take note of the "profile" path. Then, close Opera.

    Then, open the "Bookmarks" file in the profile folder in a text editor (like Notepad++), look for the youtube entry and fix it so it looks like this:

      },
      "name": "YouTube",
      "type": "url",
      "url": "https://www.youtube.com/"
    }
    

    Then, save your changes and open Opera.
