Can I get Google tool bar that is compatible with Firefox 8

Posted

Window7 Professional 32 bit running Firefox 8. When I try to download  ? latest version of Google toolbar I get a message to say it is not compatible

Chosen solution

From Google:

There will be no update of the Google Toolbar to work with Firefox 5 or any later version of Firefox because Firefox users have most of the features built-in and have alternatives.

Google toolbar still works fine, also with Firefox 8.0.1. Some guy posted the recipe to get it going at jus.tumblr.com.

Is the Google Toolbar really worth all the hacks needed to keep it alive?

Kinda reminds me of building a car one piece at a time.

My main need for the Google Toolbar is to use the synchronized bookmarks that I can access from anywhere. I am required to use Firefox at work, so unless I can get the toolbar for Firefox I will not have access to my bookmarked.

Is there anyway to be able to access the Google bookmarks in Firefox without the toolbar?
