You don't say which toolbar, but if it requires being "re-installed", that means it is not part of Firefox, but an add-on. So I'll assume you're referring to the Google Toolbar. In that case, you'll have to go to the Google Toolbar page, and install it from there. http://www.google.com/toolbar/ff/index.html

If you didn't originally install it yourself, then my guess is that you got Firefox from somewhere other than Mozilla. In the future, make sure you download Firefox from the Mozilla website. www.mozilla.com

Is that toolbar listed in View > Toolbars?

Can you list your extensions and plugins?

i re-installed Firefox.

I did have AVG Toolbar on the old Firefox. i do not have it now.

I dont have Google Toolbar.

I have Yahoo Toolbar.

These are the only Toolbars i have now.

The Firefox Toolbar is shown on the bar above the "missing toolbar."

On the bar above the internet pages shows: Firefox is not able to show the Toolbar. Please re-install the Toolbar.

This could be related to an add-on. I had some of Firefox's add-ons. But I dont remember which ones.

How should i go about removing this "toolbar" error?

The message does not specify which toolbar. It only states "Firefox is not able to show the toolbar. Please re-install the toolbar". Under View, Toolbars,...I have four different toolbars. The error should be more specific as to which toolbar needs repaired.

I keep getting the same message about missing toolbar and I downloaded from Mozilla. I can't do anything when this toolbar error is on, can't open another tab I am unable to to open anything even help. When I run as administrator the browser works perfectly. I think mine is to do with AVG addons, which are disabled. Any ideas on how to remove the following AVG addons I have tried without success.

AVG Safe Search 10.0.0.1178 AVG security toolbar 6.011.025.001

Any help would be appreciated as unless I run firefox4 b9 as administrator it is unusable.

Help please,

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

See:

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.

  • Use "Disable all add-ons" on the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions.
  • Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

Tried removiung all toolbars but still get the message "Unable to show toolbar. Please re-install" Doesn't say which toolbar. Tried re-installing Google toolbar as suggested but that didn't make any difference. Any ideas?
