Joining 2 libraries with different saving locations?

Hi everyone,

I always used two Zotero libraries/versions:
1) work: Zotero in Firefox, saving data on my university's server
2) private: Zotero Standalone connected with Safari, saving data on my own computer

Option 1) does not work anymore due to the latest update of firefox. But I need to work with the data base we created there...
My questions are:

a) Can I download a "second" Standalone that I connect with firefox (or even another browser...), telling it to save the data on my university's server (without this inflicting damage to my private Standalone version/library)?

b) Can I have/join the two libraries in my Zotero Standalone, each saving the data in another place/location? (I guess not?)

c) If I try to join my two libraries (if I try to import the data I used to have in the firefox version into my Standalone), I guess I completey blow up my library?

Do you have any suggestions how to deal with this?

Thank you very much!

    The best way to do this is to set up two different Profile folders for Zotero, then create a separate shortcut icon to launch the app for each program.

    See here for details:

    Another option that might be easier to set up would be to use a Group library for either your work or personal data, then work with both in the same Zotero profile.
