Turn off Zotero Proxy Redirection

Using the Zotero proxy redirection is causing problems with linking to our resources and may result in the blocking of NPS's access to database sites. If you see this yellow Zotero banner at the top of your browser, click on Proxy Settings and uncheck the box labeled Enable proxy redirection.

You can also right click on the Zotero Connector icon and choose Options, then Proxies, then uncheck the box labeled Enable proxy redirection.
