  • Bookmarklet: due to Content Security Policy directives on some sites, the Printliminator bookmarklet script is not able to load on some sites (e.g. GitHub). To get around this problem, use the Chrome or Opera extension. Hopefully, Firefox & Safari extensions/addons will quickly follow.
  • Chrome/Opera extension: if a popup window is opened for printing, like Yahoo mail does, then the extension will not work in the popup. An issue was submitted and it sounds like they will be providing a fix.

  • Pull requests are welcome!
  • Provide additional translations via Transifex or with a pull request.
