Opera Speed Dial: Show Full Site Thumbnails (Old Speed Dial)

If you don’t like the way Opera 11.10 displays zoomed in site/logo thumbnails in the new Speed Dial, then here is how to fix this:

Right Click > Reload Every > 30 Minutes (or any other option)
Right Click > Reload

Right Click > Reload Every > Never

You now have static, full site thumbnails, just like in the older versions of Opera.
