I install Zotero 5.0 and I don't have the Z button

edited December 7, 2017

I've intalled the last version of Zotero and I've lost the Z botton. When I'm navigate in google schoolar I can't save any reference because I don't have this button. Is it neccesary install the pluggin to firefox? I read that the bundle of hand-on are included in Zotero 5.0.

Thanks beforehand.

  • You also need to install the Zotero desktop app:

    The save icon is still there, but it no longer has a Z on it. See here for details on the switch to the new Zotero Connector in Firefox:
  • Yes, I have installed zotero stadalone and the conector with firefox. But I can't save any paper from google scholar.

    What exactly do you mean "can't save any paper from google scholar"? When you click the Zotero Save Button, what happens?
  • For example, I open zotero and firefox in the page that i'm interested and when i'm going to click in the symbol (like a sheet not the Z button) two options appear: save to zotero with o without snapshoot. I click in any option and not happen anything.
  • 1) Provide a Report ID.

  • The connector is installed, what is the report ID. I check the options in the troubleshooting translator errors and I don't understand the problem. Maybe I need any extra pluggin? It more recommended use chrome? How can i solve?
