I've been having issues with the webclipper in FFv21 and I tried to uninstall it.  The uninstall doesn't seem to have worked since it's "stuck" and still says Evernote has been removed, and never actually clears it out (even after a dozen restarts of Firefox), and there are a number of Evernote named files/folders in my FF profile that remain, so I don't think the uninstall of the addon did much of any actual removal. (see screenshot #1)

I tried re-installing the addon, and it downloads OK, but fails when installing saying "Firefox can not modify the file needed" (see screenshot #2)

I'm pretty savy, and would tackle manually uninstalling if I knew what files & wher to rip it out of the profile.  Any help?

 

I can post any debug logs or additional infor you want, just let me know what you need!

I like your username.   I have the same exact problem with  Firefox 22.   I am ready to go back to FF 18  because this is too much trouble!

I just had the same problem,   FF 22,  claims it downloaded, installed,  not on my HD....plenty of space.

 

The instructions for Web Clipper are totally incorrect for V 22......

 

I go to tools to  to web clipper,  box pops up,  but no choices on what to do.   So maybe it did install somewhere but it does NOT WORK...tried 3 different websites

 

How do I fix it?    I hate to use IE.......

It does it to me too, in FF 23.0.1...Downloaded it, tried to install it, but it says it can't because FF cannot modify the necessary file.

 

*Which* 'necessary file'?

Hi all!

 

It's seems to be an issue with the Evernote Web Clipper add-on for Firefox since version 22 (I've checked it in v22 and v23 in Windows XP).

 

I have the same problem: the complement download it's OK but there is a problem when Firefox tries to install it.

 

Please, fix it!

This can be corrected by taking the extension files from a working computer and copying them to the same directory on the other.

 

If you don't have the files I can send them, but it is a large directory.

 

You should not have to do anything but copy and paste and follow the prompts.
