This post is in reference to the thread "How to disable completely the Speed Dial?" (https://forums.opera.com/topic/25046/how-to-disable-completely-the-speed-dial) and the behavior of moderator leocg.
This moderator needs to be removed from access to this forum.
First, he (or she) insulted the intelligence of a user posting to this forum without offering any alternative troubleshooting tips (It seems that you are misunderstanding or maybe doing something wrong - 5/5/2018).
Second, he is incapable of recognizing that Opera is NOT acting as it should relative to the "Hide Speed Dial" setting and therefore, there is, indeed, a bug. His statement, despite the fact that Opera is not acting as it should is "There is no bug to be fixed."
