safari (Archived) Repeatedly asking for login

Recommended Posts

The Safari web clipper routinely forgets my login and forces me to re-enter my username and password. This is extremely annoying and unnecessary. How do I prevent it from asking for login repeatedly?

hi freediverx,

Can you help us verify what build version you are using. (Safari > Preferences > Extensions )

Also we'd like to know if you are free, premium or business premium user. (this issue seems to affect one of these buckets the most...)

 

Additionally - if you have something that resets Safari or clears cookies automatically this is expected at the moment.

I am a premium member. I am a beta tester. On many occasion I have had the clipper Asked me or tell me I must sign in for it to work. At that point when I have clipped the icon in the toolbar for a place to sign it, there isn't one. I have bought this was a bug for a while. After reading the initial entry a few minutes ago I tried to do something and I it appeared to go through without a hitch. Hopefully that is limited. I have using OS 9.

Just signing in to add a "me too". Noticed this happening over the last couple of weeks.

 

I use Safari, with Clipper v. 5.7 on a Macbook Pro. I have a premium evernote account. 

Thanks!
Christine

I am having the same problem except that I have to sign in several times an hour. If I open a browser tab in a new window, then save to evernote, I will have to sign in again. If I click on one of the "Related Notes" on the "Clipped" message, then the note will try to open in a new browser window and will display nothing. At this point if I open another 'tab' in the same browser 'window', go to evernote and login, then I can refresh and see the note. However, when I return to the browser window I started from, then I am logged out of evernote.

 

There are many variations, but the gist is that almost every time I use the web clipper, I must sign-in over and over again. Nothing to do with clearing cache or cookies or logging out, not at all. Simply clip a few times, then login again. 

 

I am using Safari Version 6.0.5 (8536.30.1) on OS 8.0.4 Mountain Lion on a MacBook Pro. And I am using the Evernote Web Clipper. I don't know how to view the script it is running because it is on the 'toolbar' not on the 'bookmarks' bar. 

 

I have a premium evernote account. 

 

Is there a workaround for this? 

 

Also, this is a new bug. I cannot pinpoint exactly when it started, but sometime within the last few weeks. 

 

And, fyi, this is horribly, maddeningly frustrating. Especially because it is a new bug.

This happening for me with FireFox and Safari. The only extension that works is with Google Chrome.

 

This is indeed very, very frustrating and only happened to me when I went from Free to Business and then back to Free again. Might give an indication?

 

Update: Sorry it only happens in Firefox for me.

Can you try to update to the latest Safari Clipper version 5.9.15 by either enabling automatic updates for extensions on Safari > Preferences > Extensions tab. Let me know if that resolves the issue.

I'm encountering the same issue on Mavericks with version 6.0.6.

 

Each time I quit and relauch Safari, I need to enter my login and password again.

 

This creates a lot of friction when attempting to use the extension and makes it unusable for me.
