can't install toolbars from IE11

Hello again, I just recently updated from IE9 to IE10 and then to IE11 and I went back to IE from Google Chome because it seems to save battery power, my problem is I want to install the yahoo toolbar and I get it as a .xpi file and if I try to go do google toolbar it tells me that my browser is not supported, how can I fix this so I can have toolbars and by the way the bing bar works just fine

That is one of the issues with new version of practically any browser but especially Internet explorer,
Third party toolbar compatibility,
Yahoo is probably the worst in any version of ie,
Google well it was okay in ie10 but not as good as ie9 so it's not surprising Googles response is to "Upgrade" to Chrome

Nice to see your upgrading issue has been solved,

You should be able to get the Google toolbar working, but to do so you'd have to disable Enhanced Protected Mode. Mind you would be lowering your security in doing so. To test

Open Internet Explorer> Tools> Internet options> Under Security> Uncheck Enable Enhanced Protected Mode> OK your way out

This may also allow the Yahoo toolbar to work. A Guy
