(Archived) Firefox Webclipper not working - broken javascript


Recommended Posts

Am using Evernote on Firefox (actually Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101126 Firefox/4.0b8pre).

Webclipper is failing. Now, you might say the above Firefox level is unsupported. Fair enough but the Firefox Error Consols suggests the problem isn't with Firefox:

Error: conten is not defined

Source File: chrome://webclipper3-common/content/libs/evernote/overlay.js

Line: 27

In lines 26 to 28 we have:

if (typeof content.console != 'undefined') {

console = conten.console;

} else {

which COULD be corruption of the extension but looks like a typo.

I'm also not sure the test in line 26 is the compactest. :-)

Someone please corroborate / investigate.

Thanks, Martin

I had a bit of a play.

I fixed the typo you mentioned above and it wrote the error message to the error console.

Issue appears to be in WinMozillaNativeClipperImpl.js.

I put try error trapping around the method on line 22 as the line highlighted below generates a exception and doesn't exit gracefully.

With this fix it falls back to the web clipper but it is a little bit better then using the bookmarklet.

Evernote.WinMozillaNativeClipperImpl.prototype.isSupported = function() {

// make sure Evernote is installed



var enClipper = Components.classes["@Evernote/WebClipper3;1"].createInstance(Components.interfaces.IWebClipper3);

if(enClipper == null) {

return false;


return enClipper.IsEvernoteInstalled();





return false;
