Mendeley Web Importer upgrade

The web importer has been upgraded to a new look on some browsers (some already had this version of the importer):

If the old importer no longer works, reinstall the importer on your browser. 

Firefox 57 Update


Zotero 4.0 for Firefox will not work with the Firefox 57 update. Upgrade to Zotero 5.0, which runs as a standalone program and uses the Zotero Connector to work with Firefox.


The Mendeley Web Importer will not work with Firefox 57. Mendeley is releasing a new version during the afternoon of November 14th. If you have trouble using the importer after that time, you can install the extension here.
