Shortly after Clippings 1.2 was released, there was word that clippings with 2-byte text were being saved as garbage characters. Yesterday during work on the upcoming Clippings 2.0, I found out why: the back end changes that were made for Clippings 2.0, but were incorporated into Clippings 1.2, broke the ability to save clippings with 2-byte text.
A minor release of Clippings was rushed to fix this problem. It is now available from the Clippings official web site, or you can click the download link below:
Clippings 1.2.1 (28 KB; English-US; compatible with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*)
If you already have Clippings installed, it will be upgraded for you if automatic extension updates are enabled in Firefox. Otherwise, open the Extension Manager in Firefox, then right-click on the entry for Clippings in the list of installed extensions and choose Find Update.
