You should have searched the forum or asked first before embarrassing yourself.
Instead of importing 4,000 bookmarks to Speed Dial, import them to the Quick Access Bar (aka Bookmarks Bar). That's still rather a lot of bookmarks for the QAB to handle, but as long as they are well organised into folders and subfolders it should work well enough. I have about 1,200 bookmarks in 86 folders/subfolders.
For "Sessions" the Speed Dial is fine. Stack a number of speed dials on top of each other to create a Speed Dial folder. Right-click on the folder to open them all at once.
It's not as powerful as sessions were in earlier versions of Opera, but it is a viable solution to open a number of bookmarks at once. Right-click on a folder to open all bookmarks in a folder is another method.
A Bookmarks Organiser or import/export to other programs is not implemented yet, but D&D on the Quick Access Bar is OK for organising the odd few bookmarks. Right-click and sort alphabetically also helps a lot.
In many businesses these days ordinary employees are used to test software that is intended as a tool for non technical end user functionality. Browsers fall into that category. I sense that Alderdale is not actually a member of the IT Department (that probably explains why the OP does not actually state that they are a member of the IT Department). The person is likely to be a junior member of staff who belongs to a large group of employees who make extensive use of a web browser in their day to day activity. If I am correct, the investigation that Alderdale conducts will be non technical and concerned more with functionality and ease of use. If Alderdale finds a suitable browser that meets the brief given then a trial will be rolled out to the group for more extensive user testing. The OP has clearly decided already that Opera 18 does not meet the functionality and ease of use requirements of the group. IT Staff are usually accustomed to having to deal with implementation frustrations and finding workarounds and so adopt a more professional approach to their work. Non-technical junior staff find such investigative work confusing and very stressful and perhaps this is why frustration has boiled over into a degree of posting hostility. Obviously my views are an untested hypothesis but I have come across this type of activity many times in my career and the OP displays all of the usual stress symptoms.
I have chosen to mention this on this Forum in the hope all who contribute to the discussions will adopt a more tolerant and helpful approach.
