Unable to install web clipper plugin

Bug report

I installed inkdrop on a new computer and was attempting to install the same plugins I used on my other machine. The web clipper extension is failing to install. It’s possible the issue is similar to another issue where core-js is the culprit, however that’s speculation on my part.
