Firefox WebClipper with reader View?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to clip a page when in Firefox Reader View. The normal web clipper works great 80% of the time only giving me the info I want but some articles have adds in the middle of the page and the clipper copys that as well while in Firefox reader view it eliminates all of that but I am unable to clip the page thoughts?

Hi.  Have you tried clipping 'simplified article'?  That should strip out lots of ad content...  (desktops only)

Evernote's simplified clipping saves only text but I save a lot of articles where the diagrams and graphs are just as important.

Firefox Reader View somehow understands which images to keep, usually producing the view that I would really like to save.  But Evernote's clipper can't save it, due to "browser restrictions," according to a clipper popup.

Can this be fixed?

Hi.  Firefox has its own built-in screen grabber plus add-ons like Nimbus Clipper which you could try.  Firefox 'system' views like Add-in windows and-apparently- this reader view are restricted for reasons best know to Firefox.  I wouldn't have thought that would be something that Evernote can change...

Yes, maybe that's something Firefox has to do (Evernote people, true?). 

Thanks for the Nimbus Clipper pointer.  It looks pretty handy but unfortunately, it doesn't run on newer Firefox versions -- I'm hoping Nimbus will do an update soon.

Huh, I clicked the firefox link here, and it says "This add-on is not compatible with your version of Firefox."  Same version of FF as you.

Crazy!  Your link works for me too.  I'm optimistic that Nimbus will do pretty much what I want, so hey, thanks a lot!
