Remove First Level of Cascading Bookmarks Menu
Allow Editing of Menus could solve this, but this is a request for the Default Bookmarks Menu to be improved for all users.
The current arrangement adds an extra keyboard press for keyboard users and an extra click for mouse users.
As in Opera 12.18, move the Bookmarks Root Folder to the first cascading menu level. The Speed Dial folder can be at the top of this first level as in the mock-up below:

@pesala The Speed Dial folder does not exist. There are many of them. Why would speed dials be handled differently from the rest?
@caine Of course it exists. If other folders are marked for inclusion in the Speed Dial, they will show up as subfolders.
These ought to show up on the Bookmarks menu, Speed Dial folder, but they do not unless you drag them into the Speed Dial.

@pesala No, they actually live next to it. On your start page you can create a new speed dial folder which are tabs at the same level. The Speed Dial folder is just the default one present and I believe that you can even remove it (I haven't tried as it contains meaningful content).
Here both Speed Dial and Video are speed dials.
In your bookmarks panel, you can flag any folder (next to the speed dial) to be utilised as a speed dial. These do not show up as a subfolder of the speed dial folder called Speed Dial.
Two speed dials and a bookmark folder.

Yes, you can. And if needed, you can create a new one. You can also rename it.
@Pesala This should be tagged as DONE, or?
@cheve11e_191 It is an experimental feature and off by default in the latest snapshot.
It is at least partly DONE if the feature is enabled, but IN PROGRESS is probably still the right status since the Bookmarks Menu is disabled by default. I would still like to see the bookmarks on the first level menu, not on the second level like speed dial.

@pesala I'm not sure, but I think this is a problem on your config. My bookmarks don't go to a 'special' folder called 'Bookmarks'. On my bookmark manager, they exist side-by-side with my speed dial folders
This improvement has now been implemented in Vivaldi 1.15.
