zotero starting to behave strange

My zotero has gone wild. When I add a new article some website (no matter which) it fills in the date added in all fields or some random journal name in all fields.

If I change it and close firefox then it will be changed back when I start firefox up again.

This is really scary since I'm writing a manuscript which I plan to submit very soon.
I am using zotero 1.0.7.r.3393 and firefox 3.0.3 on WinXP
  • Send in an error report using Report Errors after this occurs.

    Have you tried disabling your other Firefox extensions?
  • Report ID 451166012

    I have not tried to disable other extensions but i haven't experienced any problems before.

  • 1) Try "Check Database Integrity" in the Advanced pane of the Zotero prefs.

    2) If that doesn't find errors, try disabling the other extensions, just in case you updated one recently.
  • It says "errors were found in the Zotero database"

    Use the DB Repair Tool. These are likely errors left over from using the database with Firefox 2, which had database instability problems.
  • Thanks it works. Come to think about I used zotero with my laptop yesterday and I have the zotero-directory on a network drive. my laptop might have lost the connection to the network at some point.
  • That sounds entirely plausible. I'd recommend regular checking of the database integrity if you're using a network share, at least until you have a sense of how stable it is.
