Can someone help me install Goodsearch toolbar?

Posted

Had the Goodsearch toolbar for years. On one of the updates it disappeared. Have been trying to get it re-installed but get some kind of error can't be installed because firefox can't modify. The error doesn't give you time to copy or read fast enough before it disappears. Tried to install from Mozilla website, didn't know it was there until much online searching. Now I get an error that says it can't install because an engine with the same name already exists. It offers no info on how to get rid of that engine with the same name. I want this add-on this is very frustrating. Win XP, FF is up to date, popups allowed for mozilla add ons. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
