Restart your browser
Update to the latest version of Chrome

Check your extensions
If you have other extensions installed, its possible that one could be interfering with Pocket. Visit chrome://extensions to see all of the extensions that you have installed. Try turning off your extensions and re-enabling them one by one to see if Pocket doesn't save when another extension is enabled.
Log out and back in to the Save to Pocket extension
Open the settings page for Save to Pocket by right-clicking on the Pocket button and selecting Options, then log out. Click the Pocket button to save a page again, then log in when prompted. See if your page saves after you log back in.
Check the Site Access option
Right click on the Pocket button and look for the Site Access option titled "this can read and change site data" and ensure that "On All Sites" is selected. If this was not selected, change this option and try to save again.
Allow in Incognito
