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.
• Bug fix: New From Selection doesn't work on Outlook.com
• Bug fix: On Mac OS X, the bottom content of the extension preferences dialog is cut off
• A message box now appears when attempting to create or paste a clipping from a web page that is inside an HTML frame, with workaround instructions
