Hi all,

We have a new beta version of the Firefox Web Clipper that adds PDF clipping support with the setting 'Send Clips to Web'.

 

Get the build here:

And post any issues or feedback to this thread.

 

Can you please explain what you mean by "adds PDF clipping support"?

 

Do you mean capture the web page as a PDF and send to Evernote?

When I tried to install this (Clipper 5.8 Beta) on Firefox 22; Win XP, I received this message from Firefox

 

"Evernote Web Clipper cannot be installed because Firefox cannot modify the needed file."

I tried the 5.8 Clipper and got the same "cannot install" message on Firefox 23.  I'm on Win XP SP3.

 

This add-on used to work well and I relied on it extensively.  What's the file Firefox can't modify?

 

Didn't fix this bug.  Please help us out here.  Thanks.

Thanks for the new beta, but sorry to say, no resolution.

 

Still get the same notice of not being able to maodify the file, even after restarting firefox.

Hi!  I have the same problem.  I had reset Firefox and uninstalled all my addons because they were interfering with application testing (I'm a developer).

 

With NO other addons installed at all, Evernote Web Clipper refuses to install,with the message:

In thread http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/37162-unable-to-install-web-clipper-in-firefox-instal-in/ someone outlines a process where you create a new profile, delete everything in it, copy your old profile in to it, and restart, which seems to work around the problem.

 

Is this the recommended workaround?
