A year passed? Can i see sites thumbnails instead of useless logos, already, please?

  • Is it possible to see site thumbnails for google, yandex and other sites? I don't need their logos, but thumbnails solves many things, as long as they SHOW WHAT EXACTLY this page about. So i want that feature (like in 12 and older operas) back. How can i achieve that. Thank you!

  • For bookmarks and speed dial entries? Yes, you can.

  • When you add a new bookmark, you have a choice. Don't see a way to change an existing one though ...

    Starting in Opera 29, go to the page, click on the heart button and change the picture.

    Latest opera is 28.x. Pretty strange. Are you sure you talking about SPEED DIAL and not about favorites/bookmarks?

  • In Opera 28 just reload the thumbnail. In Opera developer 30 you even have more features like picking an image form that site and set it as a thumbnail..

    Opera 29 is the Developer version.
    Most things in it will eventually find their way to the release version, but it could take a while.

    28 is the latest stable version. Latest beta is 29 and developer is 30.

    From 29 on, speed dial is part of bookmarks.

  • You can also go to extensions and try the FVD speed dial, works good and lets you change things the way you want it.

    You can activate that option (switching thumbnails to their own file) for now at least because it seems like they're replacing that feature with ..

    By disabling opera://flags/#favorites-bookmark-backend

  • To get the thumbnail version of the speed dial, in opera 28 also known as the new start page, you have to activate it by a flag setting. Enter without quotes "opera://flags/#experimental-start-page" in opera's address bar. Change "Experimental start page" to "Enable" then shutdown and relaunch opera.

    Thanks, i tried it. But nothing actually changed, logos still there, can only REFRESH them.

    Yeah, its cool, but i've got about 1000 dials and i can't transfer them to FVD. The problem still remains.

    Interesting. So they all look like dials or bookmarks? Also, does synchronization work in latest opera builds?

  • I also want the website preview speed dial icons instead of this useless coloured icons. Any idea?

  • Ah ok. it is the "Bookmarks backend for Speed Dial" in experimental. Disable it an restart Opera. Then you will get the old preview icons. :cheers:

    Then i will get old useless site logos. "Bookmarks backend for Speed Dial" is disabled by default, so the problem remains. How i can get normal previews like in good old opera?

  • By upgrading to Opera 29, which has that feature enabled by default.

  • In current versions of Opera, when you add a bookmark you can select an image (from however many are on the page), a thumbnail or the default text to use as a preview - but note that is bookmark. You'd need to delete any current bookmark for the page, add a new one (and select an image while doing so), then add the page to speed dial. Yes, tedious if you have hundreds of bookmarks you imported from another browser and however many speed dials - but that's what it is currently. (None of us work for Opera, we can only tell you what it is and not change it.)

  • You'd need to delete any current bookmark for the page

    Nah. You can just go to the page, click the heart icon and change it. You don't need to delete it first.
