I have just downloaded but the plugin section is stuck. It says it is not compatible with 4.0b11. Is there a fix?



Probably, when the next version of Firefox is finalized.

I don’t use Firefox, as it doesn’t properly recognize the capture as rich text Service.

Thanks Bill,

Does that mean its Safari time forever?


I think it means that DTech isn’t going to update its software to adapt to other app’s beta releases.

I can understand that DT can’t keep up with every Beta release, but Firefox is pretty standard. I haven’t been able to install the DT plugin, getting the message:
Clip to DEVONthink 1.2.3 could not be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 3.6.20.
Is anyone else using Firefox? I use it because of Zotero, which is an important app for me.

Firefox found potentially serious security issues in earlier versions and have been experiencing declining popularity. During the past year they began cranking out a series of updates at a rapid pace. For some reason, each update required a new version of extensions.

I have Firefox 6.0.1 installed, and haven’t further updated as I wanted to keep a compatible version of Clip to DEVONthink. I think Firefox is either up to version 9 or is about to release that version.

Personally, I don’t use Firefox or Chrome, because neither is compatible with the OS X Services that I use for most of my captures.

Zotera has released betas of a Mac standalone version of Zotera and plugins for Safari, Word and Open Office. I’ve downloaded them but haven’t had time to experiment. See

I presume the FIrefox “Clip to DEVONthink” plugin version 1.2.3 is not compatible with Firefox 9.01, as nothing appears.

Not a big deal for me because I don’t normally use Firefox, but I do habitually update the plugins for Firefox and Chrome as well as Safari.

If I can make a suggestion though: if DEVONtech is not going to keep that (or any other) plugin compatible with every beta release or for that matter every update, then there needs to be a visible compatibility statement somewhere on your site, most logically here: … nuals.html

That at least should be kept fairly current.
