[Solved]Passwords import not working.

  • Hello! I have been an Opera user since a while now. But i've been having some problems with it, and i uninstalled it.
    Two days ago, i re-installed it again, and it perfectly worked. But i have been encountered a problem.
    I have the latest version of Opera. (66.0) I tried to import my passwords, but they didn't imported.
    I think i tried all the ways possible: at the "opera://settings/importData" i checked the saved passwords from Chrome, the "opera://flags/#PasswordImport" is not there anymore in this version; i even tried the command prompt one, the "C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" --enable-features=PasswordImport". And absolutely none of those worked.

    If anyone can come up with any other option of how should i import my passwords, it would be highly appreciated by me.
    I have lots of passwords and there's absolutely no way i'm going to enter them manually.

  • @teodoracv What happens when you try to import from Chrome?

  • @leocg It happens nothing. The command is not working.
    The one with the bookmarks is working perfectly, but the cookies, history and passwords are not working. (i don't care about the cookies and history now, though. i only care about my passwords for now.)
    After i select to import the passwords and i tried to see if my passwords were imported, none of them were.

  • Hi @teodoracv, when you run the Opera with --enable-features=PasswordImport switch, it should show the "3-vertical-dots" button in opera:settings/passwords, on the right of the "Saved Passwords". If you click on it, it should display the "Import" button, which you use to import passwords from the .csv file.

    Regarding cookies and history: you can simply copy the following files from the Chrome's profile to Opera's profile: "Cookies", "Cookies-journal", "History" and "History-journal". You can find the path to Opera's profile in opera:about > Paths > Profile. Don't forget to close the Opera and Chrome, before you do that.

  • @l33t4opera I did clicked the "import" button and after that i downloaded my passwords from Chrome and imported then into Opera, none of them were imported. I tried multiple times, even restarted the Opera and kept reloading the page, but the passwords are not there.

  • @l33t4opera Ah, nevermind, it had some lag, but after that they imported on their own. Thank you!

  • @teodoracv You're welcome! I'm glad to know it's working for you.
