Disabling the flag as you specified works, thank you!
I was indeed talking about searching in the address field -- hope this feature for touchscreens will work again by default if the flag disappears.
@burnout426 said in Can't import passwords:
To enable password importing, you need to start Opera with the --enable-features=PasswordImport command-line switch.
"C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" --enable-features=PasswordImport
Goto the URL opera://about to see the "install" path to see what the path to your launcher.exe is. You can then run that command in a command prompt or modify the properties of Opera's shortcut to pass that switch to launcher.exe.
Then, in Opera, you can goto the URL opera://settings/importData and import your passwords from Chrome. But, you need to make sure Chrome is closed when you do it.
Or, if you want to import the csv file, you can then goto the URL opera://settings/passwords and the "import" option will be available.
Thx very much! Now i have my passwords!

You say you got your Chrome bookmarks successfully, but not the passwords from Chrome, and neither from Firefox?
Is there any type of error or message you get when trying the ones that do not work?
Import from Firefox didn't work, it said success but Opera didn't import nothing. Same with Chrome: success message but only bookmarks imported.
Yes I did that and was very nervous and didnt see there are the same files inside although the path was named different. Now when I compared them I replaced everything and all my settings came through. Thank you very much for the help. I just love Opera and using it more than 10 years now. Best browser for me. Love it that I can use it in Linux too.
After stumbling around for a while trying to fix this error, I changed permission in one of the parent directories and finally got an error message in Opera that mentioned that I didn't have permission to change the profile. And Opera wouldn't open. Now I was getting somewhere! Something to actually fix!
Changing the permissions of the folder mentioned in the error message fixed this issue. The error message no longer appears when I open Opera.
Unfortunately, I got interrupted around that time and I've forgotten which folder it was. But I never did find any mysterious file or folder that could be called 'Profile'. I guess it's what Leocg says, the entire directory is my profile.
Other than the permissions for a folder that I hadn't changed prior to the error message needing to be changed, I can't think of anything unusual that might have caused this error.
