Firefox Web Clipper for Mac Version: 6.13.2 (3283464/ Does Not Accept "/" in Tags



Hi all,

For a while now, Web Clipper Version: 6.13.2 (3283464/ for Firefox on Mac will not acccept the forward slash character "/" when entering tags. Web Clipper for Chrome and Safari allow it. Because my tags are set up hierarchically using the "/" to facilitate better browsing, I cannot tag clippings.

Hi.  Using Firefox 64bit on Windows,  but I can confirm that "/" is not accepted in the tag field (although if you go into options,  it is possible to add 'permanent' tag with this character.  ??). 

Don't know why or when (or if) this changed - I don't use that kind of notation in tags.  I'd suggest you contact Evernote by email (subscribers) or Twitter (anyone) to get a direct response - we're a (mainly) user-supported forum.

Hey there!

I have the same issue. What I do as a workaround is to copy a "/" from somewhere (like the URL bar, there's enough slashes there) and then paste it into the tag field.

It's annoying to do, but it works!

I agree. Luckily for me I don't have too many tags that have slashes in them, but I can imagine if almost all your tags include slashes it's very annoying.

Currently the Firefox and Safari web clippers are both at version 6.13.2, which is from October 2017 (while the Chrome version was updated just a few days ago). It seems to me that the new version (7.x) is not compatible with Firefox or Safari, and because the Chrome version has almost 25 times the amount of users compared to the Firefox version (5,187,092 vs 221,140) Evernote won't be spending too much time making it compatible. Our only hope is that when they make version 8 of the clipper that they make it compatible with other browsers.
