Missing settings and flags

Hey guys, this may have been posted about to death but I'm running into some issues switching my browser from chrome to opera gx. I've followed several different sets of directions just trying to import my passwords from chrome and enabling chromecast support with no luck. The options to enable in flags neither of those two are there no matter how I search for them. Even when I tried the command prompt running it didn't want to take that either. Any help would be great, thanks in advance!

See "Chromecast support" section at https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2021/05/opera-78-0-4066-0-developer-update/ for more info about Opera's new, built-in Chromecast support.

Whenever the password import flag disappears due to Chromium removing the flag, you can try the command-line option instead if you want to see if it still works.
"C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" --enable-features=PasswordImport

Chromium removing the flag
I think it will be interesting for you.
This flag is not removed from Chromium's code, it just expired automatically. It's a mistake of chromium developers, they forgot to renew it. This has been fixed in Chromium 94, but they renamed this flag. It was
#passwordimportnow in chromium 94
Sample code for the 93rd Chromium for this flag. flag-metadata.json
Sample code for the 94rd Chromium for this flag. flag-metadata.json
Also in the 94th chromium code this flag was added to this list: flag-never-expire-list.json
However, the old
--enable-features=PasswordImportswitch still works even in Chrome Canary 96.0.4656.0
