    • zotero: remember
      • Your citations are stored in the hard drive of the computer where Zotero/Firefox is loaded, not on an online server, so it is only possible to access citations on the machine where they were originally stored
      • It is possible to download Firefox Portable on a flash drive along with the Zotero plug-in; this enables you to run Firefox/Zotero on any computer with a USB port and internet access. For more information, check out: http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable
      • Only works with Firefox 2.0, Netscape Navigator 2.0, and Flock 0.9.1; it will not work with earlier versions of these browser, and it will not work with any other browser, including Internet Explorer, Macintosh Safari, or Opera
      • To use Zotero to insert citations and bibliographies, Firefox must be open as well as MS Word
