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

IE11 - to install or not
A few months ago I wrote about problems with my IE11 and was told to revert to IE10 because IE11 was not 100% stable yet. So I have been using IE10 since then. There is one particular site (CBC News - Latest Canada, World, Entertainment and Business News) that insists on wanting to install Adobe...

I can't get IE10 or IE11 to install
Sorry - not exactly a novice, but I get a server error when I try to attach my file. My guess is the file is too large at 11mb. FYI- when I ran /scannow, I got no errors. The reason I'm trying to attach the file is because I can't get IE10 or IE11 to install on my Win7...
