Re: how can I go back or restore to pre Version 5. Google Toolbar is not supported yet

1) Install "addon compatibility reporter" extension using the link in my original post.

2) To open Addons Manager in Firefox, do one of the following.

  • (If you see the menu bar) Tools -> Addons
  • (If you do not see the menu bar) FirefoxButton -> Addons

You can try this extension to override compatibility issues,

Once it is installed, open Addons Manager and re-enable Google toolbar addon.

Addons Manager URL:    about:addons

Thanks for your reply.

Addons Manager URL: about:addons - this is not a URL / hyperlink.

I tried the following and just no idea what next (just want a Google Toolbar - like I had)

Hi,

Sorry if I confused you. I did what you asked i.e.

install from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/add-on-compatibility-reporter/

Then followed the steps via addon-manager and was confronted by huge list of Google oriented options.

Following you last response - I did everything again and without any 'enable-ing' the GOOGLE TOOLBAR is now present.

Don't really understand what I have or haven't done but appear to have got where I wanted to be !!

Thanks for your support & patience.

PS It seems to have solved another problem that every time I opened a new tab a YAHOO screen would appear.
