Suppress Zotero Connector Installation Message


My institution uses a heavily locked down and secure environment for research due to the presence of PHI so we prevent our users from installing software. We just updated Zotero to the latest version and now every time a user launches the application a web browser is opened prompting the user to install the connector. Due to the secure nature of the research environment, we cannot allow the connector to be installed. Is there a way to suppress this event and prevent the launch of the web browser with the message to install the connector?
  • That only happens when Zotero is first installed. If you’re getting it every time you launch it, something on your computer is preventing Zotero from writing to the prefs.js file in the Zotero profile directory, which would also prevent all other settings from being saved. You’ll need to fix that to have normal Zotero functionality.
