How to use google toolbar in firefox 5? Can I use the older version with google toolbar or I have to delete firefox from my computer using IE etc?

Posted

I want to use google toolbar in firefox 5, but it does not support it.

Chosen solution

I love Firefox but putting out a new version before it is compatible with the most popular ad ons is ridiculous. So is making radical changes to the look so everyone has to relearn to use the software. I am sorry but they are starting to think like Microsoft.

You can try this extension to override compatibility issues - once it's installed, you can just re-enable Google toolbar.

If you still want to downgrade, see here:

Add-on worked & Google Toolbar running with Firefox 5. Downgrade site did not open. Why, in Firefox 5, does the new tab page not have the history & recently used pages that were in Firefox 4?
