Web clipper failures

Recommended Posts

The web clipper is suddenly failing to clip news sites that worked perfectly well until this week. The New York Times, the Washington Post and others get no response or -- in one instance -- an error message "Due to restrictions in the browser, you cannot clip this page" after repeated instances of telling me I had to re-load the page to clip. In all instances, I am a subscriber to the news source in question, so the pages were not constrained by limits on free articles or anything like that.

What has gone wrong with the Web Clipper this week?

Using latest version of Firefox on a Macbook Pro with latest version of Mojave

A few experiments reveal that this seems to be a Firefox-only problem. Clipper works fine in Safari on the sites that choke it in Firefox. Wonder what is up....

If you search the forum, you will find another thread about this issue.

Using FF with Win10, no problem so far. I hope it stays this way.
