Chrome Extension Repeatedly Confirms Open DT3

I am using DT3 3.0.1 and MacOS 10.14.6

The Chrome extension to Clip to Devonthink has always worked fine. Now suddenly every time I use it, I am first asked to confirm if I want to Open DEVONthink 3.

I run DT3 on 2 Macs and this only happens on one of them. Ideas why?

Do both Macs use the same versions of macOS and Chrome? It’s possible that this is intentional and that Chrome uses now the same annoying alerts as Safari.

Same version of macOS and Chrome on both

There is some difference between the two of them in security settings (as discussed here Security Issue with Reminders Script ) but that was a while ago and this change in behavior with the Chrome extension just started yesterday.

Did a new version of Chrome install maybe last night? Which version of Chrome do you use?

I do not know if there was a new version that was just installed but the versions match on both of my computers so I remain puzzled why the problem is only on one of them.

A simple fix…
Stop. Using. Chrome.

I’ve just checked with the very same version. Works as expected. So, in short, there must be some security setting that is different. Browsers add more and more security mechanisms that may or may not interfere with extensions such as Clip to DEVONthink (or remove them altogether, like Safari).

Well I will upgrade this computer to Catalina sometime in the next week or so when my schedule allows - hopefully that may solve the issue.

Well I upgraded to Catalina but the problem still persists.

Maybe I can use a KM macro to run it. Is it possible to execute the DT3 web clipper via Applescript?

No. there are create commands you may want to explore.
