Firefox Problem with clipping pdf

Recommended Posts

When trying to clip PDF web pages. This appears to have started after upgrading Windows 10 to V 1803. This is happening with both Firefox and Edge. Reloading the page accomplishes nothing.

The issue, which is NOT stated correctly, is the after upgrading to Windows 10(64 bit) version 1803, I receive a message stating "This page needs to be reloaded before you can clip it. Reload the page and try again". I am unable to clip ANY PDF pages since this started.

I have a similar problem. I am running Firefox on Windows 7. When I try to clip a PDF web page, evernote suggests reloading endlessly.
The following log message is output at every attempt, but I'm not sure if it is relevant.

/n23:39:23 GMT+0900 (WARN) moz-extension://f71ced89-6b0e-478b-bae8-97d13d3419e7/background.html: Unable to toggle clipper, tab loaded, but main coordinator is not

Firefox 60.0.1 (64-bit). Evernote Web Clipper 6.13.2.

I am running the same Firefox version as you. My problem started with the previous version of Firefox,  I guess 60.0.0 and I was hoping the new version would help. Well That's interesting because I'm running Windows 10(64 bit) and it started when I upgraded to V 1803, I think... Did yours start with the new Firefox update?

I've tested older versions of Firefox on Windows 10 if clipping a pdf works. The result is as follows.

59.0.1 OK

59.0.3 OK

60.0 NG

60.0.1 NG

I think the problem is introduced at 60.0.

Nice troubleshooting, thanks. I'll update my issue. Now we just need Evernote to fix it.

I heard from one of technical support staff of Evernote that they have recognized the issue.

I hope it will be fixed soon.

It's about time they recognize it. I've been looking for a solution for weeks. Glad to see others taking the time to bring it to their attention. Thanks to all!

Same problem on Mac OS Sierra with Firefox 60.0.2 and Evernote Webclipper 6.13.2. There's a second hread on the same issue out there.

My current workaround: I have Firefox show the .pdf, then use the "save document" function to actually chose "open document with" and select Evernote from the list of programs.

Seems to be a smart security feature by chrome. Still Evernote should work around it finally ?

I'm having the same issue with the web clipper not clipping PDF pages. The clipper suggests reloading the page, reloading does not fix the problem.

 

Firefox v 61.0.2
Evernote v6.14.5.7671
Clipper v6.13.2

Still no fix? Having a similar message when trying to clip a PDF (reload page). Firefox ESR 60.2.2 on Windows 7 and Firefox 62.0.3 on Windows 10. In Chrome V69.0.3497.100, the EN add-in works.

I see that Chrome works. Problem is I hate Chrome. But thanks for the update. I may have to use chrome when I need to clip a PDF. What a pain.

I also have the same problem using the latest versions of firefox (63.0.3) and Evernote Web Clipper (6.13.2) and I am hugely disappointed (just upgraded to premium version, because I need to be able to deal with many pdf files). Can't believe, this problem seems to exist for more than half a year now.

 I finally switched browsers I am using Vivaldi now it appears to be an offshoot of chrome but it has the vertical tabs that I used to like in Firefox and Web Clipper works well.

I have the same problem on Firefox. But works fine on Chrome. So, I temporary switch the browser; but it is annoying.
