Hi Nathan,
We've been using LibX with Sirsi for a year and half or so and never had 
an issue like the one you describe.  Here's a screen shot of our settings 

Best regards,

I’ve created a LibX version (currently using Firefox) for our library and 
everything is working great except linking from the “cue” that appears 
when searching book vendors such as Amazon, B&N, etc.  We are using SIRSI 
Unicorn as our ILS and I have a few issues:
1. Sometimes, the cue does not show up at all.  This takes place with 
Alibris and  Powells.
2. When a book is not found in the OPAC, SIRSI should display this 
message: “Item not found--perhaps the following list will help” and list 
below keywords/subject headings that are close alphabetically to the 
search term.  Instead, it often displays an error message: “#csnot 
defined”.  I’m not sure if this is a problem with SIRSI and LibX 
compatibility, however, the appropriate message does display sometimes.
3.  If I right-click on the title of a book and search the OPAC by title, 
etc. SIRSI exhibits appropriate behavior.  Same goes if I type or 
copy/paste bib data up in the LibX toolbar.
If anyone else out there has found this with SIRSI and has figured out why 
this is happening, please let me know.  If this is a problem that cannot 
be remedied, I wouldn’t mind taking the cue feature out, yet I’ve been 
told by the developers that this cannot be done.
Thank you,
