The flag is disabled in the Chromium source and Vivaldi does not change these settings. In my opinion they should as all new Vivaldi user come from another browser.
The password import is broken for Chrome too and it is the only way to get them anyway.

@manversman Vivaldi will not and can not sync with Google.
That said, you could perhaps write a script to re-import from Chrome every time you open Vivaldi, but the very idea makes me slightly queasy.
That said, Vivaldi will soon sync with Android (as it does on my test version), though at first tabs might not be included (or they might, after a fashion).
@Gwen-Dragon Thank you, I tried this before but it did not work, now it was different.
I just want to add three things:
The CSV format is (If you do not use this, the file is not imported):
Character set: UTF-8
Enconding of new lines: Windows
The export flag is not necessary, the Export option appears once there are passwords.
Neither export or import options appear in vivaldi://settings/privacy/ you must access to chrome://settings/passwords/
I tried this solution, the flag is active, but no import available.
When I go to vivaldi://settings/passwords/ I get to the first settings screen and in the passwords page, it doesn't appear either.
Alle users are imported but the passwords are empty, when I make the password field readable it appears to be empty
I'm on 3.0.1874.38 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
I restarted already several times. Even tried the shortcut solution.
Please help me get my passwords back, it's pretty useless otherwise.
I was able to find the settings page by going to chrome:// rather than vivaldi://
There I have the improt function now. But... Nothing happens when I import and they are also empty
UPDATE: it worked, but now it's all double :D, the empty and the filled ones 😃
and ctrl+shift+del > delete passwords doesn't affect...
@tomasantunes There is a case to be made for import/export to be available on the Bookmarks Tab (import is already there) and on the Bookmarks Panel.
I don't think there is any good reason to put it on the Settings Dialogue.
The obvious place to look if you cannot find it is in Help
@Pesala The worry is that when the data is exported, it is exported in a corrupt form. This is the reason why I'm requesting text lists instead, so that in the worst case all that's involved is a large amount of selecting options and copying and pasting, but one can be confident that the data being copied and pasted is not corrupt.
@yukitaga I couldn't find such request so I moved your thread to the Feature Request forum. If your "old browser" is Chrome (it probably works for other Chromium-based browsers too), you could try this to import the favicons:
@lonm said in My bookmarks favicon are not loaded after import from Chrome:
You could try going into your chrome profile and copying the files Favicons and Favicons-journal into your vivaldi profile, but I can't guarantee that would work, or be bug-free.
You can find your chrome profile location by visiting chrome://about in chrome, and your vivaldi profile can be found at vivaldi://about in vivaldi. Copy the files to/from the folder listed as the profile path in each.
Interestingly, when you export bookmarks into HTML file, the favicons data is stored there too. I think Vivaldi could (at some point) implement a method to fetch them from there... 🤔
I know this is an old topic, but for any searchers who come across it: See a workaround in This Script Copies Description, Separators, etc. from HTML to Existing Vivaldi Bookmarks. It can copy Descriptions, Keywords/Nicknames, Tags, and Separators to old existing bookmarks or to newly imported ones.
