  • I've tried to import passwords from chrome into GX and nothing happens no matter how many times i attempt it

    I've exported a csv file for all my passwords, but find no way to import that file directly.

    help, or a fix would be much appreciated

  • @HRBNGR Enable the password import flag and then import your exported passwords.

  • @leocg
    Sorry, but i'm not able to find the Password import flag, Where do i find that?

    Edit, had to do wayyyyyy more digging online than i should have needed to, for future reference of people needing this fix, go to opera://flags/#PasswordImport And you'll be able to find it there

  • I tri ed the Import everything from [Settings] [Import Bookmarks & Settings] [Firefox] - no passwords loaded. Tried again with just password - no PW's.

    Tried the enable FlagsImport thing, Closed Opera, opened and tried again - no PW's.

    Tried making CSV's from FF and Chromium, import, no PW's.

    This is make or break on Opera for me - no PW import I go back to Chromium as main browser.

    Any suggestions?

    I've been browsing for posible solutions - do Opera techs ever Reply on the forums? Because so far I haven't seen any nor found anything useful under Opera Help.

  • @Journeyman If Firefox can export passwords, you can import them in Opera. Just read above and go to the passwords manager.

  • @leocg - Thanks but I tried that.See above about CSV's. It didn't work, from the FF csv or the chromium csv.

    And I just discovered that Opera also lost all my folder structure for my bookmarks as well as the Descriptions.

    I am not going to sit and edit hundreds of bookmarks to add in descriptions and move them to folders. Firefox and Chromium both had zero problems with this.

    Note I also DID try to import all my settings, bookmarks and PW's when I installed Opera.
