firefox Web Clipper 6 for Firefox - beta

Idea

Hi all,

We have a release candidate version for the new Firefox Web Clipper that we'd like to invite a few select people to start testing.

It is a complete re-write and doesn't share any code with the previous version so we expect some turbulence in the beginning. 

 

When you report issues please post your OS, Firefox versions, URL where an issue can be observed and as much details as necessary for us to reproduce the problem. 

 

Not expected to work in this version:

- Sharing 

 

Get the latest build here: 

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/evernote-web-clipper/versions/

 

And feel free to post both design & performance feedback as well as straight up bugs.

My setup is very minimalist - I have no toolbars, sidebars, or menus visible, and I use the keyboard extensively. I have vimperator [link] installed, and I rarely use the mouse. I have a vimperator command mapped to activate the EN web clipper from the Tools menu.

 

I just tried installing the beta/alpha (package name and references in this thread don't really match), and I noticed that it does not have an item in the Tools menu. This means that I cannot use the clipper with my current setup, and I will have to add a toolbar just for the EN button.

 

Will the final release restore the menu item in the Tools menu?

Hello,

 

After updating to the last version of the plugin (6.0.alpha.25) I can't type de "@" sign at the IEEE account login. You can verify this by going to the following url: http://email.ieee.org

I disabled the web clipper beta and now it works fine.

 

Regards,

 

Jaime

Is this the sort of thing?

When enabled, searching the web with supported search engines will also display results from your Evernote account.

 

Should be in the options for clipper.

Sorry.  Forgot I opted back to the standard clipper.

 

Does my example sound like the stuff you're seeing though?  You're having search hits on notes as well as websites?

@jbignert  Dittoing the issue stefanwrobel is seeing. After upgrading to the newest beta I see no way of turning off simultaneous search.

And the simultaneous search is driving me crazy!!

 

Evernote employees, just curious - are you able to "see" the number of users who enable or disable that "feature"? Is it actually popular? Or does it default to ON and there are just a large percentage of people who can't figure out how to turn it off? I'm truly sort of curious about the percentage of users who may actually like that feature.

Strange problem with Web Clipper alpha-25, FF 33.0.1 and page https://clinthuijbers.wordpress.com/2013/09/06/ssis-powershell-script-task/. Having clicked on Web clipper icon, clipper selected article but I was not able to scroll down with mouse wheel to check selection. This behaviour is specific to this page, on other pages was not reproduced.

 

UPDATE - after FF restart - problem was not reproduced.

Hi all,

We have a early beta version for the new Firefox Web Clipper that we'd like to invite a few select people to start testing.

It is a complete re-write and doesn't share any code with the previous version so we expect some turbulence in the beginning. 

 

When you report issues please post your OS, Firefox versions, URL where an issue can be observed and as much details as necessary for us to reproduce the problem. 

 

Expected to work:

- Article, simplified article, full page, bookmark, screenshot clips.

- Notebook selection, tag selection, adding remarks

- We've done extensive improvements to the clip quality component so we're interested in knowing pages that it fails or can be improved.

 

Not expected to work in this version:

- Post clip dialog

- Native clipping component 

- Sharing 

- Selection clipping not implemented

- Smart filing

- Keyboard shortcuts

- Related notes on Google & other search engines  

 

Get the build here:

Note: The beta version will NOT update to newer beta's when they become available. That has to be done manually. 

 

And feel free to post both design & performance feedback as well as straight up bugs.

When it is in beta we have quite a bit of debugging code in it. This will be cleaned out for release and the size should go down significantly.

Hi all,

We pushed an update to the Beta version that we now consider release candidate. Please re-install it and give it a go and try to break it.

Hi!

Thanks for your hard work!

 

Unfortunately I have some issues with the new beta:

- No thumbnails in snippet view, both Evernote desktop and web version. Occurs on all pages I have tried.

- No option to turn off related notes.

- Does not use last used notebook or smart tags, even though the settings is correct.

- Not compatible with my Firefox extension "Classic theme restorer", I have to inactivate it to see the Evernote elephant icon.

 

Here is an example page:

 

http://www.archanaskitchen.com/recipes/indian/main-course-vegetable-gravy-recipes/1195-vegetable-kofta-curry

 

I have FF 33.0.2

OS X 10.10 (Yosemite)

 

Hope these issues can be solved before you release it as final.

 

Best regards,

Jeanette

I'm using FF 33.0.2. I'm use Evernote too and all tools. I hope WebClipper update (6.0+) for FF will be true. For me FF better than Chrome.

First of all, I'd like to commend the team at Evernote for putting the FF plugin back on the roadmap. With the introduction of the developer version of Firefox, the usual gray icon is no longer visible in the monochrome toolbar (screenshot).

 

Would it be possible to request a monochrome version of the icon as a configurable setting? I know it's a long stretch, but perhaps something to add given time (as a configurable option)?

 

Cheers!

Hi,

 

Thanks for your renewed efforts to build a web clipper that could run smoothly on Firefox.

 

I'm running into a bug with your latest beta version at this Quora page. The "+" and "-" size selector buttons are unresponsive when I clip this page (article mode). I've tested the same thing with Chrome's web clipper and there's no bug

 

I'm using Firefox latest version 33.1 on Mac OS X 10.7.5.

 

Best regards.

Unless I'm missing something, how can it be considered release candidate when it's little more than clearly. still missing, pretty much all the functionality of Chrome. As you wrote yourself.

Only jbignert could say for sure, but at a guess, "general release" for Firefox would be a functional release that can be used by the general public.

 

Although I'm sure that they're aiming to put as many features into the Firefox clipper as are in the Chrome clipper, they're currently trying to get out a version that people can use at all on Firefox. There's no "contract" for them to provide parity with Chrome on first release; indeed, he's pointed out the items that will be missing for that release, but presumably will be added over time.

Hi krunoslav,

I haven't properly updated the text in the original post that links to the beta version and that mentions what's not implemented yet. My bad. 

Going over your list everything on the list is implemented except sharing which will come in the next release version. 

 

You do need to uninstall older beta versions and re-install the never ones manually to get the updates.

I iust installed FF web clipper 6.0 beta.2. It works fine once or twice and then becomes nonfunctional. If I quit FF and restart the clipper then works again - once or twice and then stops again. This is incredibly annoying and time consuming! When it stops working the clipper box opens up but even though it shows "clip article" the web page i am on does not show the article selected.

 

Should I go back to a 5.9 version?

I just installed it today, on Windows 7, Firefox 33.0 - and, barring memory consumption, I have no problem with it. I expect memory consumption to go down after the official release. I've used it a few times, and it's still functional.

 

Which operating system and version of FF are you using?

For me, this is the worst beta yet.  Saving an article works 1, at most 2x, before clicking "Save" does nothing at all.  I have to then restart Firefox for it to save a clipping.  Rinse and repeat.

I've deleted the plugin and reinstalled.

Version 6 from the addons.mozilla.org managed to slow down my Firefox 33.1.1 on Windows 8.1 significantly. Loading pages, closing tabs and everything else lagged considerably and the Firefox process grew above 1 GiB, while with the Web Clipper 5.9.1 it sits around 600 MiB and there is no noticeable lag even after several days of usage.

I can confirm this as well. The addon makes the whole Firefox interface very slow and loading pages is slow as well. Only in Web Cliper 6 beta, not the earlier versions. I have to use Cliper instead now. Web cliper as is can't be used, make everything in Firefox so slow. please fix that.

Hi all,

We have verified the memory usage problems and are working on a fix for them. 

If you have this problem it would be great if you can post more details about your typical workflow and that will help us narrow down the components that are offending. 

- What type of clip are you making? (article, simplified article, screenshot, etc)

- What notebook selection preference do you have? (smart filing, last used notebook, specific notebook)

 

Thx

For me, regarding memory issues, it doesn't matter how I use it.  I think the moment it is installed, Firefox UI responsiveness goes down. Once its uninstalled it works fine again.

Same for me as Krunoslav said.  I haven't used the clipper at all lately, but Firefox has been freezing and crashing like crazy lately, and extremely slow. I uninstalled the clipper and it seems to be back to normal.  I'm on FF 33.1.  I also use 64-bit Firefox Nightly build, which I think is on version 37, and had the same issue - though Nightly has implemented multi-process architecture, so I was getting individual tab crashes right and left instead of the whole browser, which have stopped after uninstalling the clipper.

Hi folks,

If you have a few minutes to help us diagnose the memory 'leak' please do following:

- after using webclipper for a while,

- navigate to "about:memory"in a new tab in Firefox,

- click the first measure button (top left box)

- copy-paste the tree that it shows (just select all, cmd-c) and paste it into an Evernote note and send to me as a PM via the forum.

 

Thx, all help appreciated.

Thought the "No internet connection" thing could possibly be an interaction/conflict with another extension, so tried installing on a clean profile both on Win7/Firefox 37/64 bit and Ubuntu/Firefox 37/32 bit, but got exactly the same results :(

I can't vouch for whether or not the memory issue is better or worse, but this Beta does seem to have more problems for me. Upon installing it (Firefox 37/Ubuntu/32-bit), Firefox crashed after locking up for about 30 seconds (this lock up was present on the previous version, but not as bad). When I restarted Firefox, it again locked up for about 30 seconds, then everything seemed OK. The "No internet connection" issue is still present though, making it impossible to test further since I can't log in

Still a lot of memory usage. I'm on Firefox 34, and when I'm using it with no web clipper, with 50 tabs open its 600 MB of memory or so. As soon as I install web caliper it goes to 1600 MB and stays there, plus everything is slow, the UI I mean. I uninstall web cliper and it's back to normal.Clearly there is some kind of issue.

No need to apologize for your opinion :-)

 

The thing is, we use the best option we can, and some of us think it's Firefox. Some may not be able to use any other browser due to computer permissions or other reasons, and have to use Firefox.

 

Either way, it doesn't matter. Firefox may not be the most popular browser out there, but it is very popular. And I believe this is why Evernote supports it.

 

Anyhow - enjoy Chrome/Chromium :-)

I did for a while, then switched back to Firefox.

Beyond personal preference, Firefox offers special addons that I can't find alternatives for in Chrome There are other reasons as well. Besides. Firefox is the only browser that has full color management support, if Chrome ever gets it let me know. In the meantime I will use Firefox. I have wide gamut monitor and it's unusable without color managed applications.

So, I managed to get around the "No internet connection" issue by booting my profile in the release version of Firefox, signing into the evernote extensions there, then going back to Firefox 37 with the same profile. Looks like there is some issue in the latest Firefox version with the code that checks for an internet connection. This is the only extension I'm having any issues with in Firefox 37

 

At least I can start testing the extension now - looks good so far! :)

Firefox 34.0.5, Win 7.1, new Evernote and WebClipper user

 

The WebClipper installation instructions could be improved for Win users since you completely miss the step to download the xpi file.  Since the installer has already disabled any older version of WebClipper, opening a new FF tab seems pointless.  Instead, why not install the add-on directly from the add-on menu (gear icon)?

 

After two FF restarts, the add-on seemed to work well.

Tried that. Even completely removed web clippper and restarted Firefox. Then installed add-on from file and it still will not clip PDFs. But found workaround. I use Foxit Reader as my PDF Reader and its pluging for Firefox 34.0.5, so I chose  to customize toolbar in web interface and added native pluging's Evernote sharing option. While it's does not give me any sharing option, it at least let me put pdf in Evernote directly (it goes into default notebook). I wonder if it's has to do with the type of Reader I am using.

1) can't take screenshot clips (is this still under dev?) even though I can select the area, after mouse release the shot does not show up to edition and upon saving I get "Error: invalid arguments"
2) not sure if it's only w me but the Evernote Google results (how do you call that feature again?) now has a white background vs a black in the past. I preferred the black much more, not sure if this is a new design or just a bug

I often get a blank title when trying to clip a page:

Once this happens, I need to restart the browser, because the

clipper don't work reliably.

 

I don't know what pages/sites etc trigger this behavior.

 

I use Firefox as my primary browser and greatly appreciate your work

on this clipper.  I recently tried Chrome and I'm jealous of how the 

Evernote clipper works reliably.  However, I won't switch to Chrome

because I have quite a few plugins for Firefox and bookmarks set up already,

and it works :)

I tried removing all extension and keep only Evernote web clipper - didn't helped. Then I tried creating new Firefox profile and under this, Evernote addon started working. Then I switched back to my default profile and in process lost all my opened tabs (not intentionally). But after this, Evernote web clipper started working under my old profile with all extensions enabled… So… Could the big amount of opened tabs (cca 100) in many groups be the problem? It was only difference I noticed.

Hi all,

Version 6.0 was submitted in mid November and has since then been in review at Mozilla. Needless to say they are not very fast in this process and I have no clue on how much further it may take.

You can install the 6.0 version from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/evernote-web-clipper/versions/ however if Mozilla decides to not approve it, it may be disabled until until approved.

Several people here in the forum already confirmed that that 6.0 build has some serious issues which increases the memory usage and turns Firefox into a slow CPU hog after a few hours of usage. I doubt that it will pass the review.

It's true. The FF is famous catch or off suddenly when opening many tabs, especially with that add-on (web clipper), that lets slow. I think Chrome is the future of the browsers.

They don't even care. We (Firefox users) are waiting for so long for a proper extension and we keep getting buggy 'betas'. After 1.5 months with the last horribly buggy extension they gave us a new completely broken one. Pretty sure they didn't even test it.

 

You show no respect to your customers. That's pure trolling, not something you should expect from professionals.

it consume too much cpu when I open dozens of tabs.

please fix it.

Dozens of tabs i any browser is probably going to be a problem, just because of the browser.

 

That being said, does the CPU load decrease when clipping is done?

I disagree. I have reagurally open up to a 100 tabs in a browser (Firefox) and there is no issues. Even Clearly and older verion of web clipper work fine, only the new one clearly has memorry issues.

The CPU is not really the problem its the memorry and generaly slugishess after install. And it is slow no matter if you are clipping or not.

I have noticed a cpu bump of about 5% more when it is activated, with only Add-on tab opened. This is very annoying if you need work on battery for long periods of time.

I've found that opening nytimes.com tabs makes it worse. I hope this helps the developers for trubleshooting this issue

I just installed the latest beta (27-jan) and I get tan error message when trying to clip the following article:

 

http://www.runnersworld.com/race-training/race-more-to-become-a-better-runner?adbid=560165398608244736&adbpl=tw&adbpr=14882900&cid=socTP_20150127_39468537

 

The message says "Error: Owner document doesn't match."

 

Regards

 

I had no problems clipping it. Looks like it's a problem on your end.

Try clipping it from another computer.

Hi I just installed the Firefox Web Clipper 6 beta from Jan 27. The icon is not showing up so that I can put it in my tool bar.  I did the view> toolbar>customize. It seems to be a ghost. Only words without icon and will not attach when I dragg it to the toolbar.

 

Unsavy computer user. Thank you

Try uninstalling the Clipper and re-installing it - all from the add-ins page.  Close and restart Firefox after uninstalling.

So I just intalled the beta toda (2/19) and had an issue when clipping from gmail. I clipped a message with two attachments: a PDF and a Word document. The PDF opened fine from Evernote, but the Word document is completely garbled. Any thoughts?

Thanks

Gmail clipping as a feature is not yet supported in Firefox Web Clipper. Messages will clip reasonably fine but attachments require a specific feature that is planned but not yet built.
