Chrome Due to the restrictions set by the browser, you cannot clip this page

Recommended Posts

I have installed the Evernote Webclipper App but get this prompt when trying to activate it:

Due to the restrictions set by the browser, you cannot clip this page

Have looked over Settings but not found where I can configure the settings to make it work?

Hi.  What version of Evernote did you install;  also what OS and browser do you have?

Hmmn.  Hadn't realised it before but Firefox's Add-on pages are immune to clipping  I get the same result.  There's even another add-on called Firefox Screenshots which normally does exactly what it says on the can,  but that gives a similar message  - 'This isn't a normal web page.. unable to screenshot'

You'll be able to copy sections of the page and paste into a new note,  or take a Windows screenshot of the visible area,  but that's about it...  :(

Linux KDE Neon using Chromium browser. I installed the "pop-up as tab" extension to overcome the inability to clip popup windows (for whatever reason that escapes me, my bank likes to provide reports in insecure popup windows that I normally block because they can bypass the protection provided by browser extensions). The extension converts all popup windows into tabs that are protected by my security extensions, and that can be clipped by Evernote. After I installed this extension, I attempted to clip the chrome webstore page to save the documentation of how this extension works, and I got the error message copied below:

Chromium Version 63.0.3239.84 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on neon 16.04 (64-bit)
Evernote Web Clipper Version: 6.13.1 Updated: December 15, 2017 Size: 3.79MiB

Due to the restrictions set by the browser, you cannot clip this page
I tried to check the page source code, but I could not find anything in the HTML code to explain why the page could not be clipped. This is an image of the page.

I was able to resolve this.

I have No-Script installed and I allowed zen desk related stuff (zdassets etc). Not sure if that was related to Evernote or Evernote web clipper though, or just the related to the pages I currently had open.

The other thing I did was allow third party cookies, then checked all the Evernote-related hosts. (Note the first one starts with a . ) Then I saved those changes, and re-enabled Blocking Third-Party Cookies.

Browsers (like Chrome) often restrict us from enabling Extensions on their extensions / settings / application store pages. Please navigate to any non-settings page and you should be able to start clipping.

I have this problem as well. How do I know what is a non-settings page?

If you can clip the page,  it's a non-settings page.  Also if you got there through a standard URL rather than going through your browser's menu.

I have never posted before, so, consider that in regard to this response.  

I encountered the problem as described above using chrome.  I downloaded a bank statement, went to the download page in Chrome and the only options inculded using WebClipper.  As noted above, I got the message saying that "Due to..."?  I found, though, that if I just clicked on the view in file link, that I could right click on the file and use "Send to" to send the file to Evernote.  Seemed to work fine for me.

Hi.  As was already posted,  some web pages are fussy about what they allow on their page - I can imagine a Bank would be unhappy about a third-party application like Evernote leaning in to steal a customer's information.  I always save the PDF files my statements come in to my system,  and then attach them to my notes.  Clipper isn't always effective on web pages - just most of the time.
