About this Add-on
- Make sure Zotero is installed in Firefox.
- Install the JabFox add-on. The JabRef icon should now appear in the Firefox toolbar.
- Adjust the path to the JabRef executable in the add-on settings (under Add-ons > JabFox > Options).
Now you should be able to import bibliographic references into JabRef directly from your browser. Just visit a publisher site or some other website containing bibliographic information (for example, some page on the arXiv) and click the JabRef symbol in the Firefox toolbar. Once JabFox has extracted the references and downloaded the associated PDF's, the import window of JabRef opens.
You might want to configure JabRef so that new entries are always imported in an already opened instance of JabRef. For this, activate "Remote operation" under the Advanced tab in the JabRef Preferences.
On Linux and Mac OSX, sometimes directly linking JabRef.jar does not work. In this case, create and link the following bash script
java -jar /my/target/to/JabRef.jar "$@"
Thanks to ClemSc for providing this workaround.
Internally, JabFox uses the magic of Zotero's site translators. Thus most of the credit has to go to the Zotero development team and to the many authors of the site translators collection. Note that JabFox does not make any changes to the Zotero database and thus both plug-ins coexist happily with each other.
