I've lost google toolbar when i installed firefox 5, and I want it back, with all its advantages. How can i do this, or how do I reinstall the old firefox?

Posted

I have just installed firefox 5. I no longer have the google toolbar, with my bookmarks, and all the other features with which i am familiar and which I use. The firefox bookmarks do not transfer from one computer to another. It's dreadful! Tell me how to install the google toolbar, which Firefox is blocking, or tell me how to go back to the previous firefox so that i can have the computer which is useful to me. thank you.

Many users have restored the functionality of Google toolbar by installing the Add-on Compatibility Reporter extension. Google needs to test the toolbar in Firefox 5 and change one line of their code to make it compatible with Firefox 5.
