Hi

I got "upgraded" to IE 8 on vista and now it "helpfully" prevents cross-site scripting every time I hit the "Clip to Evernote" in my links bar.

HELP!!

The best way to clip web pages into Evernote from IE is to use the native clipper that's built into our Windows client. In order to use the native clipper, just make sure that you've got the latest version of Evernote for Windows installed (or, if you don't have Evernote for Windows, download it from http://www.evernote.com/about/download/windows.php). If Evernote for Windows is running on your system, you can right click inside any web page in IE and clip the page to Evernote. Clipping web pages in this fashion happens completely on your local computer and does not involve any servers other than the site you're clipping from. Additional clipping options can be found under the little Evernote icon in the system tray.

If you don't want to use the native clipper, you can install the Evernote bookmarklet into IE. However, there is a security setting in later versions of IE which prevents the Evernote bookmarklet web clipper from executing correctly. You can disable this setting by going to Tools->Internet Options->Security, turning off "Enable XSS filter" and restarting IE. This will allow the bookmarklet clipper to work but may increase your vulnerability to "cross site scripting" attacks on malicious web sites. Basically, this setting in IE tries to prevent a certain type of security risk by disabling features in the browser which are used by several legitimate services, among them our clipper. If you are not comfortable changing this security setting, you should use one of the other two clipping options.

The third way to clip pages from IE is to cut and paste the URL and any desired portion of the web page directly into Evernote. This is the least convenient option but it doesn't require installing any software or changing security settings in IE.
