You do not have to trash or change from your favorite browser, in
order to download and use Firefox.

I keep three internet browsers available at all times — each has it
own strengths. There is one I use most of the time, largely because of
habit and built in finger-memory. :-) However Firefox is VERY useful
on occasion when a website isn't functioning quite as well as you
would like, or won't open, in your favorite browser. I know also there
is no question that Firefox is more secure than the browser I use, but
old habit is hard to break.

But with something as useful as Zotero, you have Firefox downloaded
and at the ready, quit your usual browser and open Firefox. It's a
no-brainer. Have your cake and eat it too.
