Edit of .bib doesn't work

Modification of an uploaded .bib doesn't work through the overleaf interface.

Tried in firefox and opera, tries to open an additional window, but appears to miss a plug-in decoder?

Thus, I have to add additional references manually. This is quite annoying.

Thanks for getting in touch. You should be able to edit a .bib file directly in Overleaf by clicking on it in the project menu - unless you imported it from an online reference manager, such as Mendeley (see https://www.overleaf.com/blog/184).

There shouldn’t be any plugins or extra windows, so it may help if you can send us some screenshots and a detailed description of the steps you took before getting the error via www.overleaf.com/contact. Thanks!
