How to import passwords from Opera to PM?

Unread post by Latitude » 2017-06-07, 12:00

Do you know how to export passwords from Opera (Chromium-based browser) to PM?

Thanks.

You could try the Password Exporter v1.2.1.1-signed Pale Moon compatible AMO version add-on.
Current Pale Moon(x86) Release | WIN7(64-bit) | I3 CPU, 2.53 GHz, 4G RAM

Password Exporter mentioned above can read passwords only from its own backups, but I forked it as Password Backup Tool and added the ability to import from Chromium based browsers running on Windows.

Just open Import Passwords dialog and paste the path to the password database for the corresponding browser from this list:

Code: Select all

"%LOCALAPPDATA%\Chromium\User Data\Default\Login Data"
"%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Login Data"
"%APPDATA%\Opera Software\Opera Stable\Login Data"
"%LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Login Data"
"%LOCALAPPDATA%\Yandex\YandexBrowser\User Data\Default\Login Data"
or manually navigate to the required profile and select "Login Data" file.

:!: Don't forget to backup your current passwords (or the profile as a whole) before any experiments :!:

UPD: Now on Pale Moon add-ons site: https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/password-backup-tool/
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

But, wait.... the extension couldn't get any rows from "Login Data" file.

Must Opera be closed first?

No. I think it works correctly.

Before that, in the initial launch of the extension, it could transfer 93 of 113 passwords. And, I forgot to take a screenshot of it.
That screenshot were taken in the second launch.

The another 20 passwords belong to the URL hosts which have existed in Pale Moon's password manager.

Ok then! But please note, that any data that contain non-ASCII characters can be handled improperly. This is inherited from the parent add-on, I'll try to fix it later.

So, we could type Chinese characters as our password?

You can "type" any character supported by you OS in password field (and other input fields too), but "accepting" that as a valid password is upto the service you are using.

Do you know any sites which could accept non-ASCII (unicode?) passwords?

But, I once read somewhere about unicode web domain.

I haven't personally used non-English passwords myself since it is inconvenient to type those.

I'd like to export my Firefox passwords to CSV using the FF Password Exporter and then import the CSV File into PM using the Password Backup Tool.

Perhaps someone has tried the same and can tell me if it works smoothly. That would be great!

FF Password Exporter creates CSV files with incomplete data, missing several important fields. I could try to extend Password Backup Tool with the ability to import from Firefox directly, but I'm not sure if it's worth the effort. Does anyone else really need this?
