You could downgrade to Firefox 3.6. Google is no longer supporting Google toolbar for firefox use on the current release. Google apparently took this decision partly because modern browsers already have many of the featured google toolbar tries to provide.

I down graded to 3.6 and I still cannot log in to my google bookmarks. I'm perplexed

Sorry I do not use google toolbars myself. I had assumed it would still work on firefox 3.6, but will have to leave it to others to address this issue.

Question owner

Thank you. I like google toolbar because it has my bookmarks that I put in manually. Do you know of another toolbar that would have that feature?

Firefox itself has an awful lot of functionality for bookmarks, just as it is without even looking at the many software extensions available.

Google Toolbar extension login problem starting around 09-17-2011.
Google changed the login address for their "accounts" and you need to edit the address to the new one.

  • With Firefox closed, open the \extensions\ folder in your Profile folder, then locate this folder and open it.
  • Then you need to open the \lib\ folder to see the toolbar.js file. Open that file in a simple text editor program.
  • Save the edited file. Then start Firefox.
