How export passwords?

  • When I open "Show all passwords" in Settings I see a "Export" button, but if I click on it nothing happens! Please have a look at the screenshot.opera

  • @passegua Do you have saved passwords yet?I think it may be caused by this.Also this feature was under tests or something

  • I have numerous saved passwords and I have the same experience as OP. Have you found a solution? When I press Export nothing happens

  • @danielsuarez369 said in How export passwords?:

    Do you have a password set for your user account on the computer? I'm not sure if that's a requirement or not, but when you click export, it should pop up a dialog asking you to enter your user account credentials before the export happens.

    Edit: Nevermind. It's not working for me either.

  • @danielsuarez369 It is an issue reported by several users.I think it is on Opera's end and this should be escalated somehow.

  • Ctrl + Shift + i and switch to the console tab before you click export. You'll see the error. FYI'd some Opera people about it and this thread.

  • DNAWIZ-28852 for future reference.

  • Yep, in the console I get this error:

    extensions::schemaUtils:115 Uncaught Error: Invocation of form passwordsPrivate.exportPasswords() doesn't match definition passwordsPrivate.exportPasswords(function callback)
    at Object.normalizeArgumentsAndValidate (extensions::schemaUtils:115)
    at Object.<anonymous> (extensions::binding:363)
    at HTMLButtonElement.$.onclick (options_bundle.js:14100)
    normalizeArgumentsAndValidate @ extensions::schemaUtils:115
    (anonymous) @ extensions::binding:363
    $.onclick @ options_bundle.js:14100

  • There is a workaround though.

    Enable opera://flags/#new-md-settings to make opera://settings look like Chrome's. Then, goto opera://settings/passwords and click the 3 dots to the far right of "Saved Passwords". When you do, a menu will pop up showing "Export passwords" as an option.

    Note though that not everything is perfect in Opera's settings when opera://flags/#new-md-settings is enabled. So, you might want to disable that after you're done exporting.

    Thanks to leocg for the workaround.

    Note: The issue wish the export button is probably just due to a change in Chromium where Opera just has to update it to match.

  • Spot on!

  • Very , very good, genial !!.
