How do I install google toolbar for firefox 5?

Posted

Please tell me how to get my google toolbox back after I downloaded firefox 5

Chosen solution

I have just installed the Compatibility Reporter add-on - it can enable the other add-ons considered as incompatible. It seems to work fine - after restarting Firefox twice (as required) it magically brought back my Google Toolbar and even Google Gears. You can find it here: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../?src=api]

Does downloading Google Toolbar again from Google's website fix the problem?

I'm staying with Firefox4 until the compatibility update comes out. That's the easiest fix. Firefox without the Google toolbar is like a day without Sunshine.

Nathan2055 11 solutions 110 answers

Please take a look at what Verdi is saying. Use the compatibility tool, and if that doesn't work, use this guide and this installer to downgrade to FF3.6.

hi how do i resort to the earlier version??? Please help im missing google!

Sicknero 0 solutions 3 answers

I tried the Compatabilty add on but it led to instability issues for me, so I will wait for Google to fix the toolbar. But, I did discover that you can access your Google bookmarks without the toolbar (www.google.com/bookmarks , which also has a button you can drag to the bookmarks toolbar) so at least that's one option. On a similar topic though, I see that Orbit download manager is already fixed for Firefox 5 after just a few days.

Barneybeau, read this to learn how to downgrade, when you're ready you can get the installer here.

do this: (for windows)

1) first enable your system to show hidden files and folders. xp users: open my computer or any explorer window(any folder) go to tools>folder options>view>check 'show hidden files and folders'>press 'ok'

win 7 users: open any explorer window(any folder) go to Organize>Folder and Search Options>view>check 'show hidden files and folders'>press 'ok'


2) XP: go to this folder C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\5ft8akq1.default\extensions\{3112ca9c-de6d-4884-a869-9855de68056c} here 'C' is the partition where your os is installed. '5ft8akq1.default' is the default profile of your firefox, the random number might be different but it will have '.default' at the end. if you are using any other profile than default then go to the folder. open 'install.rdf' file in a notepad. find 'em:maxVersion' phrase. you will see 4.0.* is written there. change it to 5.0.* restart firefox.

for windows 7, i can't tell the exact location of google toolbar folder, but once you find it out, the rest should be the same.

you are done, google toolbar is working as good as earlier.

I'm am computer dumbazz but I think I got it easy-peazy on this. Put your cursor on the skinny blue portion of the new Mozilla home toolbar and right click. Check add on toolbar. Whoopee. Your stuff is back. Check the rest for grins! Now, help me get rid of the sundry fixes posted that got me to accept incompatible add ons. I get this damned message every time I open Firefox and it is not on my uninstall programs list.

After reading several of these posts I've decided to wait until Mozilla fixes the problem before updating. It's just not worth the hassle. I agree with all the folks who think they should have had the Google toolbar compatibility problem worked out before releasing the update.

the google toolbar compatibility problem did not happen in the firefox's end...it solely related to the google's end only. google toolbar keeps the firefox version in its configeration file which i believe firefox should not force to change itself...it should be google who should keep track with firefox's version because the broser always comes first, then the toolbar.

Ha sido muy mal recibido por los usuarios de Firefox el hecho de haber urgido la actualización a Firefox 5 sin la compatibilidad con este, de la totalidad de los Add-On ofrecidos por Firefox, agregados y desarrollados por los usuarios; especialmente Google Toolbar para Firefox que practicamente es indispensable. En lo personal sigo con Firefox 4.0.1 hasta tanto se resuelva este problema de los Adds-On.

speedyfastcat 1 solutions 17 answers

Are you telling users that Google STILL has not released a toolbar compatible with Firefox Version 5.0? What the hell have they been doing? What is causing this delay? This is totally unacceptable and incredibly unprofessional!!!!!!!!!! Why aren't Google and Firefox at least pretending they care about users of their products? Totally irresponsible to launch "upgrades" (hah!) without making sure everything works - oh, I know, what an amazing concept!!!

I have my google tool bar back, the translator works but you have to push the button every time to translate the web page. With the old foxfire if the web page was in another language the translator would pop up and ask if you wanted the page translated. This still sucks.
