Zotero extension disappeared from safari


I just realised that my Zotero extension seems to have disappeared some time within the last two days (I still used it on the 26th of February). The extension doesn't show up under the safari preferences so its not just deactivated. Do I have to reinstall Zotero? And if so how can I make sure that my library doesn't get lost?

System info:
MacBook Pro late 2017
Safari 14.0.3
Zotero 5.0.96-beta.22+c9eb661f2

    Due to an Apple bug, there's currently an issue where you may need to delete the Zotero beta app from Applications and redownload it after an app update to restore the Zotero Connector functionality in Safari. It may also be necessary to restart your computer in between deleting the app and redownloading.
    (This is the reason the extension is only available in the beta version of Zotero.)
  • Thank you for your reply. In that case, is there a way to delete and redownload the beta app without losing all my data?

    Deleting a Mac app from Applications never affects your data.
  • So all my saved references, collection structures as well as attached pdfs and notes will be automatically available in the newly installed app?
