Instructions for installing Clippings in Thunderbird (Mozillazine knowledge base article)
Supported languages: English (United States), Chinese (simplified), Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Swedish, Ukrainian.
Clippings is also available from Mozilla Add-ons.
Portable Firefox/Thunderbird Users
If you using Portable Firefox or Portable Thunderbird, you can use the same XPI installer. Starting with Clippings 4.0, the default location of your clippings data source will be the Portable Firefox or Portable Thunderbird profile folder, which is usually located on your portable media. As a result of this change, the "Portable Edition" of Clippings is no longer available.
If you see a yellow alert bar at the top of your browser after clicking the above install link, do the following:
- Click the Allow button in the browser's alert bar.
- In the dialog box that appears, click Install to proceed with the extension installation.
- Customizable data source location. You can now change the location of the data source using the new, redesigned extension preferences dialog.
- Data source backup and restore from Clippings Manager
- Search for clippings in Clippings Manager using the new Find Bar
- Auto-incrementing placeholders. These are special placeholders that you will be prompted for once to enter a starting numeric value; every time the clipping containing this placeholder is pasted, the placeholder will be automatically substituted with a value that is incremented from the last paste. Auto-incrementing placeholder names are in the format #[variable_name].
- Tab-modal placeholder prompt dialog for Firefox. With this enhancement, it is possible to interact with other browser tabs in the same window while prompted for a clipping placeholder value
- Auto spell checking of clipping text (in New Clipping dialog and Clippings Manager)
- New extension option to enable or disable the shortcut key prefix, CTRL+ALT+V (or Command+Option+V on Mac OS X)
- Shortcut key help. Press the usual shortcut key prefix, CTRL+ALT+V (or Command+Option+V on Mac OS X), then press F1 to get a list of shortcut keys and the clipping they are assigned to. This list can be printed, or saved to an HTML file.
- On Firefox, add the Clippings toolbar button to the Add-on Bar, if it is not there already
