@zedaardv Thanks for this thread, the most useful thing was learning about the file "~/Library/Application Support/Vivaldi/Default/Login Data".
Turns out it's just an Sqlite database, but it's not clear that mine was corrupted – tried to re-create the db by movie the login data file, and then dumping from it into a new "Login Data" file, but the error -no passwords visible to delete or correct- persisted.
So I simply removed that file and restarted Vivaldi, and although I have to put my passwords in fresh now, at least I can use the password manager correctly and edit badly stored passwords out now.
@krismnx Vivaldi on macOS is generally pretty stable but there is a known problem where Vivaldi (on some Mac hardware) can crash on some web sites. If you also have Vivaldi configured to resume your last session, it will crash again when you relaunch it.
If that's the case, this topic might help you regain control:
@iAN-CooG It's not working. when I write "i am not happyy" in safari. Safari will autocorrect "i" to "I" and also auto correct "happyy" to "happy"
Vivaldi on mac can show red squigglys but not autocorrect or automatic show a list of suggested words.
@xyzzy There is also an issue with "minimize" - Vivaldi seems to monopolize the window manager og makes it impossible to change.
This may be related to "Spaces" and "Maximize", but the only way out is to Quit Vivaldi and restart.
@Cellane Thanks for confirming this glitch as well. I'll file a new bug and hopefully it won't be too hard for the devs to get this fixed.
FYI, getting browsers like Chrome/Chromium and Vivaldi working right on macOS is tricky because their inherent design doesn't always mesh cleanly with the Mac's application model. Here's an old blog post by one of the Chromium team's Mac developers that describes some of the hoops they had to jump through to get things working seamlessly. Getting the Dock integration right was especially painful. The content is a bit dated (and some things have changed from a technical standpoint) but it's still a fun read.
@Gwen-Dragon Thanks. I think that's the best solution for most people but was hoping to keep things simple... for now...
Given that @izacks started out reporting a Vivaldi issue related to entering passwords, then ran into more issues logging into Vivaldi, I think the concern was more about whether these two issues were related, or if there was possibly a problem with the Vivaldi installation itself.
@izacks I hope that we've provided a logical explanation for what was (most likely) the cause of the problem you experienced on the Vivaldi site, and given you a few options to address it. Thanks very much for reporting all of these issues!
I did not find a Vivaldi bugreport about such issue.
Works in Windows so it could be a mac-only bug.
Please report your issue as a bug, so we can check.

Technically, I just noticed Momentum should actually already have the permission it now keeps bugging me about; at any rate, I don't think the prompt should even appear because if I go to vivaldi://extensions and click on Permissions for Momentum, I see that “Momentum currently can: - Access my physical location” (translating from Czech so the actual English text might differ slightly).
