As soon as any FF update is active, my Globalspec tool bar is wiped from the deaktop and deemed "uncompatible" with the latest version. Very annoying to say it sociably. What needs to be implemented to preclude this in the future?? THANKS, JOHN

The developer of that Globalspec.com toolbar needs to keep it compatible with Firefox, as Mozilla releases new versions of Firefox. If that add-on was properly updated recently, there's really no good reason that the developer couldn't have planned ahead and made it "compatible" with Firefox 12.0 as many add-on developers have done recently - nothing much was changed between Firefox 5.0 and Firefox 9.0, and will be changed in the near future, that would have affected most toolbar addons.

Plus, if that add-on was hosted at the official Add-ons website, a compatibility "bump" would be done automatically, as the coding of that add-on passed the compatibility scan which is run before each Firefox update is released by Mozilla.

That add-on developer needs to be more "sociable" and serve his users a little bit better, more than by having a 3rd party source for that add-on.
