I reverted to version 6.13.2 and it's working fine. I used these instructions: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/24577024/install-chrome-extension-not-in-the-store

I've lost countless hours because of this web clipper malfunction, pasting links from chrome to edge at first so I could use the web clipper there and then trying to find a permanent fix. How ironic if you consider this is supposed to be a productivity tool.
