Another Firefox Plugin Problem

I want to test the transfer procedure from Google Scholar to Endnote Web. My colleague and I have both downloaded the latest Endnote Web download installers and set up our Google Scholar preferences to save as Refman, as advised at

On my colleague’s computer, Firefox pops up a log in window and transfers the items to Endnote Web.

My computer insists on only transferring to Endnote X5 or saving and I have no option to select Endnote Web. 

Is there a setting I need to tweak in Firefox to get this to behave?

You can set the EndNote Web Extension Options in Firefox to Open with EndNote Web instead. In Firefox, click on the Tools menu and select Add-ons. Click on Extensions and look for EndNote Web. Click the Options for EndNote Web and check the box to “Redirect the following MIME types for direct export files to open with EndNote Web.” Click OK and then restart your browser. See if you are then able to use the Direct Export to EndNote Web.
