Hi,

I'm using for months Org-capture, with a lot of interest. In the beginning, it
was on Firefox/Ubuntu, now it is (for external reasons) on Firefox/Windows XP.

I think I can relate the limitation I'll expose with the switch from Linux to
Windows. However, that does not necessarily mean that Windows is the culprit,
as there are so many (little) differences between the two systems.

So, what's the limitation?  I can only capture _short text_ extracts from the
Web. Once it gets over 20 lines of text or so, the "Org-capture" button still
does not do anything.

On the same page (whichever, in fact) as the one exhibiting the above problem,
selecting a shorter region of text makes the behavior of the button come back
to life.

So, it really is related somehow to the length of the copied text (words,
lines, bytes, ...?).

Any idea or workaround for this?

Best regards,
  Seb

would you please share some details and a brief tutorial so that I can 
try to reproduce this behaviour?

I followed quite precisely the instructions given on
http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-protocol.php

In particular, for Windows, I created the following =.reg= file:

#+begin_src txt :tangle org-protocol-setup.reg
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\org-protocol]
@="URL:Org Protocol"
"URL Protocol"=""
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\org-protocol\shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\org-protocol\shell\open]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\org-protocol\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Emacs\\emacs\\bin\\emacsclientw.exe\" \"%1\""
#+end_src

and double-click it.

Then I created JavaScript bookmarklets, by adding new bookmarks, with the
following *names* and *addresses*:

- =org-capture=

  #+BEGIN_SRC javascript
  javascript:location.href='org-protocol://capture://'+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+'/'+encodeURIComponent(document.title)+'/'+encodeURIComponent(window.getSelection())
  #+END_SRC

- =org-store-link=

  #+BEGIN_SRC javascript
  javascript:location.href='org-protocol://store-link://'+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+'/'+encodeURIComponent(document.title)+'/'+encodeURIComponent(window.getSelection())
  #+END_SRC

- =org-open-source=

  #+BEGIN_SRC javascript
  javascript:location.href='org-protocol://open-source://'+encodeURIComponent(location.href)
  #+END_SRC

Best regards,
  Seb

Sorry, I don't have the permission to change registry files,
I can't help.
