Zotero integration with obsidian - caught in an endless loop where the zotero link isn't opened

I was trying the zotero integration plugin for obsidian. It created a link in Obsidian for me to click on to go into Zotero to show where the annotation in the PDF is supposed to be. I noticed that this link seemed sort of different. When I clicked on the link it came up with a little window that said this link needs to be opened with an application. I have never seen this before. The title at the top of the window said "Launch Application". It wouldn't open the link for some reason when I chose Zotero as the application to open the link. It also gave me a checkbox option that said "remember my choice for zotero links". I have 2 computers and I selected this option on one of my computers and now whenever I try to open that zotero link from Obsidian on that laptop, it seems like it gets caught in a loop where zotero keeps trying to open the file over and over and over again. It only stops if I shit down Obsidian. Anyone have any idea as to how to fix this or what is happening?
  • I encounter exactly the same thing when using anki(the card is generated by logseq anki plugin though), when clicking the link I made using zotero select item. It will do exactly what op said and entering to the loop.

    Try deleting mimeTypes.rdf from your Zotero profile directory and restarting Zotero.

    That dialog is already from Zotero. I'm not sure why you're getting it — it would depend on the exact link being generated — but if you choose Zotero, you'll get an endless loop.
