Can't export anything from firefox browser extension

Not sure what the problem is, but this extension isn’t working for me. The error message I’m getting is

“Error while sending to JabRef, Please see the browsers error console for details.”

In the browser error console it says:

TypeError: data is undefined at moz-extension://ad1c23d4-4e6d-4280-878a-e6a535cf3af1/Zotero/translate_item.js:134

JabRef: Got task to convert

I’m not sure how to troubleshoot this, maybe I’ve installed it incorrectly?

Here’s an example url: but I get the same error independent of what website I’m on. Here’s the info from about jabref:
JabRef 5.0–ArchLinux–3
Linux 5.7.14-1-manjaro amd64
Java 14.0.2

I’m using firefox:
79.0 (64-bit)
Mozilla Firefox for Manjaro Linux
Manjaro - 1.0

Here’s the config file for the extension:
cat ~/.mozilla/native-messaging-hosts/org.jabref.jabref.json
“name”: “org.jabref.jabref”,
“description”: “JabRef”,
“path”: “/opt/jabref/lib/”,
“type”: “stdio”,
“allowed_extensions”: [”,

I am experiencing a similar problem. Say I try to import this

I get this error message in the extension’s pop-up “### Error while sending to JabRef.
Please see the browsers error console for details.”

In the error console (sorry, some of it is in German):

Source-Map-Fehler: Error: NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource.
Ressourcen-Adresse: moz-extension://df45d9f3-cf26-405a-ab29-ee9a86b6a427/browser-polyfill.min.js

It appears that Source Map handling in Firefox has some problems. See Network error when attempting to fetch resource.

Is anybody using the Firefox JabRef extension in Linux successfully? Please reply here :slight_smile:

For me it works fine on Mac. Maybe a temporary problem?
