Can I have trouble using extensions created for Opera in Vivaldi?

I downloaded the Classic Images extension and renamed it to make it compatible with Vivaldi (.crx), I added it to Vivaldi and the extension is very good, it will serve me very well! ( I believe that in the future Vivaldi will have this native feature, this is in the list of feature requests ).
I would like to know if there is any problem in using Opera extensions in Vivaldi, type, browser crash, security issues etc.
@JuniorSilva30: Most of them seem to work fine, if you tweak them to make them compatible. I think some need to have the "Manifest" file removed, replaced, renamed or something, but they are based on the same code as all Chromium-style extensions and so would tend to be compatible.
@Ayespy Your response was a great help! Thank you!
Some extensions may run on Opera only as they use f.ex. a special JS object only existing in Opera.
You can try extensions if they work. If they fail, you may contact the author of the extension to fix it for Vivaldi.
@Gwen-Dragon Thanks for the info! I'll do what you recommended in case any extension does not work with Vivaldi.

If you visit that extension github (which you provided) releases page.
You'll notice the author also has the
*.crx(Chrome extension) one. So, it's already official Chrome extension, although probably author didn't post it to Chrome Store.
I download it & drag+drop to Vivaldi extension page.
Seem working. I get a new context menu which popup image properties.
@dLeon Very good! Thanks for sharing! I downloaded it and did the test! Working perfectly! Thank you!
