Windows 7: Google toolbar firefox

22 Jul 2011   #1

Google toolbar firefox

Google have announced that they will no longer support google toolbar for firefox 5 onward.I have used google toolbar for years,the thing i like the most is the toolbar buttons.I have tried the bookmarks toolbar in firefox,but often it does not show the correct icon for the bookmarks i add,so its not much use to me.does anyone have any good alternatives to the toolbar buttons.It may seem a bit sad but browsing it not the same without them,they are there on display at all times,with normal bookmarks they are usualy behind a drop down menu.suggestions please.I am considering doing away with firefox altogether,and going back to IE9.There is no google toolbar for chrome so thats not an option.Now that firefox updates so quickly i have had nothing but problems with add ons.Iam currently running firefox 4 because side advisor does not work in 5.But im sure we will be forced to upgrade soon.sorry its such a long rant.but all these updates just cause so many problems.thanks for reading my rant.
