WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GOOGLE TOOLBAR?

Posted

It is no longer available. It had a lot of tools that I used and I need it back please. I don't know Yahoo and I knew Google. Sorry, but I'm just a little miffed. I have tried to bring up in the View link but it is no longer there.

Be miffed at Google (and a few other developers) for not taking the time to update their products during the several weeks of testing before the release of Firefox 5. The developers know where to find the Firefox release schedule and the Firefox versions to use for testing prior to a release; it is not a secret. Google needs to test their toolbar with Firefox 5 and make one small change in their code that determines with which Firefox versions it is compatible. Wonder why they did not do the testing .... hmmmm .... they have a browser now also, don't they?
