Troubleshooting Common Browser Problems
If you log into the proxy server but your browser displays a blank screen, this is most likely due to your browser settings:
• Disable pop-up blockers
• Make sure your browser is set to accept cookies
• Make sure Java is enabled
• Make sure you are using the most recent versions of your browser and plugins
If you have manually set up proxy settings in your browser, it could be interfering with the library's proxy server. Google the name of your browser you are using + the term "proxy settings" to find instructions for checking these settings.
Try clearing your cache, cookies, and search history, particularly if you use the library's resources frequently. You can clear these in your browser's settings or use the following keyboard shortcuts:
• In Firefox, Chrome, IE, and Edge: Ctrl + Shift + Delete
• In Safari: Ctrl + Alt + E
Troubleshooting Zotero's Settings
Lipscomb Library recommends using Zotero for creating bibliographies in any citation style, which you can download to your own computers. If you also install the Zotero Connector plugin for Chrome, you may be prompted to save your proxy login information within Zotero itself so you don't have to log in every time. While very handy, this can cause problems with some of our proxied library resources.
If you have Zotero Connector installed in Chrome, you can follow the instructions on the Zotero Connector Preferences support site to learn how to enable, disable, or maintain your proxy settings within Zotero.
