Answer:

I wanted to get preview of the favorites back. It used to be when I click the star button on the top right corner of the favorites page, it shows the icon of the favorite and when I click on the grid button, it shows a preview of the website.

This Has Work For Me


When I found this news out I also was pretty upset about this modification.


Today, I stumbled upon a solution utilizing the home button instead of the grid button:


First, you will need to customize your toolbar to include the home button. I also removed my grid button as I don't have use for it anymore.


Then, you will want to modify your home page to "favorites: //", without the quotes (menu -> Safari -> Preferences -> General -> Homepage).


For me this works exactly as I was used to, the only difference is that the button I use today has a little house on it instead of the grid.


I hope this help you with thi.
