Clippings 5.1.1 released!

A new release of Clippings is now available from Mozilla Add-ons and the AE Creations website.

If you already have Clippings installed, it will be upgraded for you if automatic extension updates are enabled. Otherwise, open Extension Manager (Tools → Add-ons), then right-click on the entry for Clippings in the list of installed extensions and choose Find Updates.

What's New
  • Bug fix: Pasting clipping into Gmail message editor doesn't work on Clippings 5.1 (issue #71)

Things You Should Know About
  • Clippings 5.1.1 requires Firefox 45 or newer, and Thunderbird 45 or newer.  If you have an older version of either application, you must upgrade it first, or stick with Clippings 5.0.2.
  • Creating or pasting a clipping in a web page that is inside an HTML frame does not work.  To workaround this issue, right-click on the page and select This Frame → Show Only This Frame from the context menu, and then try again.
  • Due to technical limitations imposed by Electrolysis, the option to avoid blocking the browser tabs in Firefox when being prompted to enter a value for a placeholder is unavailable, and is automatically turned off, if multi-process browser tabs is turned on.

Supported Languages

Clippings 5.1.1 is available in English (United States), French, Finnish, German, Italian and Slovenian.

Unfortunately, due to the lack of availability of translators, many of the languages that Clippings was previously available in are unavailable for version 5.  If you are fluent in English and another world language and would like to help update the translations for Clippings, consider joining Babelzilla and signing up for your language team.
