If you use a newer version of Firefox plus Zotero, you may have trouble logging into the Library Catalog. If you have previously used Zotero with the Library Website, Zotero may have automatically acquired and stored a proxy setting from there. In this situation, you will be unable to log in to the Library Catalog with Zotero.

If you have this problem, you can either use a different browser or disable/remove the EZproxy setting in Firefox.  Tod do this, click the Z icon in the top right corner of Firefox. Then click the gear icon to go to Preferences, then select Proxies. There you can change the EZproxy setting in Zotero.

See the Zotero support site for more information on proxies.
