Evernote - Clipper has encountered an error

Recently, when I've tried to save a webpage to Evernote in the Brave web browser, I frequently see the message "Clipper has encountered an error" with "Unknown error occurred. UNK."

Clipper unknown error

I have been able to save the page by disabling and then re-enabling the Evernote extension in the browser. In the Brave Browser, you can do so by closing the error message window, then clicking on the icon of 3 short horizontal bars at the upper, left-hand side of the Brave window which will display a menu of options. Select "extensions" and then click on the red slider button at the bottom, right-hand side of the Evernote Web Clipper extension to turn it off (it will go from red to gray).

Evernote Web Clipper
Extension

Then click on it again to re-enable the extension. You can then close the Brave extensions tab (brave://extensions). You will then need to refresh the page. After I've disabled and re-enabled the extension when I've seen the error message, I've then been able to click on the icon for Evernote near the browser's address bar and save webpages to Evernote.

Importing Firefox Bookmarks and Saved Passwords into Microsoft Edge

If you wish to import bookmarks and/or saved passwords from the Firefox web browser into the Microsoft Edge browser, you can take the following steps:
  1. Click the star with the 3 horizontal lines on it at the top, right corner of the Edge browser window which is used to access your favorite websites.
  2. Click the ellipsis, i.e., the "...", at the top, right corner of the browser window and select Import Favorites.
  3. Change "import from" to "Mozilla Firefox" and then click on Import after deselecting other options, if there are some things like saved passwords that you don't want to import. If you want to import all of the items selected by default, just click on Import.
  4. When you see "All done," you can click on the Done button and you can then close the tab (Ctrl-W is one way to close it).

To view the imported bookmarks, click on the star with 3 lines on it to access the Edge favorites, which are akin to the Firefox bookmarks. You will see "Other favorites" listed under Favorites; you can click on the arrowhead to the left of "Other favorites" to see your imported bookmarks.

Extracting image files from Google Chrome Cache

I wanted to save a local copy of an image on a webpage I was viewing in the Google Chrome browser on a Windows 10 system, but I couldn't right-click on it to download it, so I thought I could look for it in the Chrome browser cache, which is located at C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache where username is the name of the relevant account on a Windows system. I had the ChromeCacheView program from NirSoft on the system, which provides a command-line option to copy image files from the Chrome cache for a user, so I used it. Since I was logged into a regular user account, I opened a command prompt as the administrator and then made the working directory the directory where the ChromeCacheView program was located with cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Network\NirSoft\ChromeCacheView. Then from that directory I issued the command below:

chromecacheview -folder "C:\Users\JohnDoe\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache\" /copycache "" "image/png" /CopyFilesFolder "c:\users\johndoe\documents\temp\chrome" /UseWebSiteDirStructure 0

You can use the -folder option to tell ChromeCacheView which user's cache file you wish to use while the /copycache option can be used to specify the directory where you want images, such as PNG files, to be copied—in this case I was looking for a .png file because when I examined the HTML code on the webpage I thought that the the image was a PNG file. I created a temp\chrome directory under the Documents directory for the user account prior to issuing the command to hold the images stored in the cache. After the command completed, I could see all of the PNG files that had been in the Chrome cache in that temporary directory I had created.

When I didn't see the image I was looking for, I thought I might have misidentified it in the code, so I copied all of the image files from the cache directory, not just the PNG ones by changing "image/png" to "image" in the command. I.e.:

chromecacheview -folder "C:\Users\JohnDoe\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache\" /copycache "" "image" /CopyFilesFolder "c:\users\johndoe\documents\temp\chrome" /UseWebSiteDirStructure 0

That copied AVIF (.avif), BMP GIF (.gif), icon (.ico), JPEG (.jpg), JPEG File Interchange Format (JFIF) (.jfif), SVG (.svg), and WebP (.webp) files from the cache as well as the PNG ones.

Unable to type in Microsoft Edge address field

I couldn't type anything in the Microsoft Edge address bar where URLs are entered nor could I type in the "Find on page" field in Edge on a Microsoft Windows 10 system. But in tabs opened to pages where I might type some input, such as a tab in which I was viewing a Wikipedia article, I cold type and see what I had typed appear. E.g., in the Wikipedia tab, I could search for other Wikipedia articles. And in the outlook.com tab that was also open, I could compose email messages. I could also type input into the Microsoft Windows "Type here to search" field at the bottom of the screen. When I searched online for a possible resolution to the problem, I found a couple of pages where people linked it to McAfee antivirus software on the system, but that isn't installed on the system. I also saw a couple of pages where people stated that running the built-in Windows ctfmon.exe program might resolve the problem. I opened a command prompt and issued the tasklist command to see if it was already running. It was and when I ran it again anyway, there was no change to the problem.

C:\>tasklist | find /i "ctfmon"
ctfmon.exe                   25000 Console                    3     22,444 K

C:\>ctfmon.exe

C:\>

Closing and reopening Microsoft Edge resolved the problem.

Firefox reporting "Your connection is not secure" for sites

I upgraded Firefox on a Linux system running CentOS 7 to version 52.8.0-1 with yum upgrade firefox. When I opened Firefox afterwards and put google.com in the address bar, I saw the message below:

Your connection is not secure


The website tried to negotiate an inadequate level of security.

uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. The website administrator will need to fix the server first before you can visit the site.

Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY

When I went to another site, wikipedia.org, using HTTPS, I saw the same message. I checked to ensure that the web browser wasn't configured to use a proxy by clicking on the icon with the three horizontal bars at the top, right-hand side of the browser window and selecting Preferences, then Advanced, then Network, then Settings. The setting was "No proxy." I then right-clicked on the "Your connection is not secure" page and chose View Page Info. When I clicked on the Security tab, I saw the "Owner" value listed as "This website does not supply ownership information." In the Technical Details section, I saw "Connection Not Encrypted" and "The website www.google.com does not support encryption for the page you are viewing," even though the URL listed was https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl.

To remove cookies for a specific site in Google Chrome version 62, take the following steps:

  1. Put chrome://settings/siteData in the Chrome address bar where you normally place URLs which will show you a list of all the cookies stored on the system.
  2. In the "Search cookies" field, type the relevant domain name, e.g., mattel.com; you will then see only the cookies for that particular domain.
  3. Click on "REMOVE ALL SHOWN" to remove all of the cookies for the domain. You will then be warned "This will delete any data stored on your device for all the sites shown. Do you want to continue?" Click on the "CLEAR ALL" button to delete all of the cookies for the domain.

You can then click on "REMOVE ALL" to delete all of the listed cookies for the domain.
