firefox (Archived) EN FireFox Clipper Mac Makes Changing Font Size Unusable

Recommended Posts

The Mac FF Clipper makes changing the font size on the entire note unusable.

Steps to Recreate

  1. Clip almost any web page/site by selecting the text of interest and clicking on the EN Clip Button.
  2. This creates a new Note with the clipped text.
  3. Select the entire Note.
  4. Change the font and font size to a larger size that originally on the clipped text.

This results in much of the Note having sections where the text and/or images overlaps/overprints.

It is as if the EN Clipper changes the web page HTML tables to be of fixed height based on the web page font size.

I usually get a much better result if I do a more manual process:

  1. Select the text on the web page
  2. Copy to clipboard (CMD+C)
  3. Create EN from Clipboard (CMD+CTRL+V)
  4. Go back to Web page and select/copy the URL
  5. Go to EN and select/paste into the EN URL field.

Here is an example:
