-You can start multiple instances of Zotero at the same time as long as they'​re pointing to [[multiple profiles|different profile and data directories]]. On Windows and Linux, the [[http://​kb.mozillazine.org/​Opening_a_new_instance_of_Firefox_with_another_profile|-no-remote command-line flag]] may also be required.+You can start multiple instances of Zotero at the same time as long as they'​re pointing to [[multiple profiles|different profile and data directories]]. On Windows and Linux, the [[http://​kb.mozillazine.org/​Opening_a_new_instance_of_Firefox_with_another_profile|-no-remote command-line flag]] may also be required ​if you don't specify a profile name from the command line with ''​-p''​.
  
 By default, when running multiple copies of Zotero (either by using multiple profiles or running Zotero in separate OS accounts), the Zotero Connector will save items to the first opened instance. To point a specific Zotero Connector installation to a specific Zotero profile, you can set the ''​extensions.zotero.httpServer.port''​ [[:​preferences/​hidden_preferences|hidden pref]] in Zotero and the ''​connector.url''​ pref in the connector. Incrementing the port number by 1 for one pair (Zotero profile + connector installation) is sufficient. By default, when running multiple copies of Zotero (either by using multiple profiles or running Zotero in separate OS accounts), the Zotero Connector will save items to the first opened instance.
