Opera Speed Dial bring back the old style?

It's been over a month since I started my thread here and since then some new versions of Opera have been released.
Since nothing has changed in the Speed Dial UI, you don't need to have high hopes that something will change again.
Anyway, I'm starting to look at alternatives now. Nothing seems to improve with Opera anymore.

Just Awful! bring back the old style tiles...

The interesting thing about Opera One is that it looks like the old Speed Dial tials are apparently still present in the code, but just not displayed.
If you click on the heart icon (1) in the taskbar and select Speed Dial (2), in the preview menu (3) you can still select the old large tiles with text only. However, the tile is not displayed in the Speed Dial. All other preview images that can be selected seem to work.

I couldn't agree more with all the comments. What baffles me most is the total ignorance of Opera. Don't they read the comments in the forum? Don't they care?
Anyway: for some of the tiles I managed to find a solution: made a snapshot of logo's etc. on the websites and pasted them in the tiles via the menu-option to customize the image. Not always perfect but much better than the tiles Opera makes.

How to bypass this abomination:
Click version 99.0.4788.88
Download & Install Opera_99.0.4788.88_Setup.exe
Open link and follow instructions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKximnrmYFE
Doing this will get your old Opera Speed Dial back and prevent it from auto-updating to Opera One...

Thank you a lot for the solution.
I wrote also to the improvement desk:
"I’m using Opera since version 3 and even sustained it financially at the begin, buying the new versions. Since version 100, the new Speed Dial is terrible, unreadable and looks like the worst extensions of Chrome or Firefox. Where is our beautiful and original Norvegian design, buddies? It’s like to get vegetal Pølser (hot dogs in Norway) instead of true pork. So that I returned to version 99.0.4788.88 (attachement) and blocked autopudate.exe."
