ScrapBook

Doesn't work in Firefox 42 - How can I convert files? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'm giving it three stars because it's a good program when it works (5 stars) but it doesn't work for me (1 star). I get the message: "Failed to add resource to datasource. TypeError: cont is null"

I went through the troubleshooting guide but couldn't solve it. From the feedback from other reviewers, it sounds like it's a waste of time contacting the developer. If anyone here has any ideas, I'd appreciate it.

All I want to do is get my old captures converted to a usable format. I used Scrapbook a lot a up to two years ago. When it stopped working with the latest Firefox, I realized this was an addon I couldn't trust with my research.

Has anyone figured out how to convert the Scrapbook data files to MHT or PDF, or anything I can read with a regular program? Right now, I've lost a lot of work and am trying to figure out how to get it back.

Update: After several hours of frustration, I finally got it working and got it to recognize my old database. It's not enough to just move the old database folders. You have to replace the new "scrapbook.rdf" file with the one from your old database.

Next step is to convert all my scrapbook saves to a format I can trust. Will never lock up info in a proprietary format like this again. It already stopped working in a previous Firefox update. What are people going to do when it stops working again and the developer isn't around to update it?

Did not work for me Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Could not get this to work reliably. Highlights would show up one time, then disappear next time. Contacted the developer but got no response. Switched to Diigo toolbar and am much happier.

Cutnote Web Clipper

Needs option to opt out of web storage Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I agree completely with the last reviewer. I do not want my notes stored online. I appreciate new software but will stick with Scrapbook Plus where I have control of my notes. Its fine to offer web sharing as an option but it shouldn't be the only option. If the author really wants to make the software better and better for users, he'll make this change.
