How To Use The Google Toolbar in Firefox 5 and Firefox 6

How To Use The Google Toolbar in Firefox 5 and Firefox 6

Back in July Google reported that they would no longer refresh the Google Toolbar add-on for Firefox, which implied that anybody utilizing a variant more current than Firefox 4 was stuck between a rock and a hard place. This probably won't have been as large an arrangement if Mozilla hadn't quickened their refreshing calendar directly around that time, implying that clients needed to settle on a decision: keep the Toolbar usefulness or utilize the more up to date, better Firefox. 

For those of us that discover the Google Toolbar famously helpful and worth the loss of those additional pixels up top, this news was a monster bummer. In case you believe that the GT is pointless or handily supplanted, simply see this not insignificant rundown of additional items Google proposed for copying the usefulness. 

As of recently I would not refresh Firefox so I could keep the GT. At that point I went over a post on Techie Buzz (a decent wellspring of tips and deceives) that tackled the whole issue and permitted me to utilize the toolbar in Firefox 6. The best part: this stunt will work with any extra that hasn't been refreshed at this point. 

Re-Enable the Google Toolbar in Firefox 5 and up

  • Before you redesign Firefox, introduce the Add-on Compatibility Reporter expansion. Don't uninstall the Google Toolbar. 
  • Redesign Firefox typically. You will see an admonition that Google Toolbar is contradictory and will be crippled. That is fine. 
  • When the redesign is finished, go to Add-ons under the primary menu. At the highest point of the screen a yellow ready triangle will reveal to you that you have contradictory additional items. This is typical. 

  • Each extra line currently has another catch: Compatibility. Look to the Google Toolbar add on, click it, and pick "This extra despite everything works."


  • Restart Firefox. The Google Toolbar will show up similarly as before with all settings flawless. 

  • As I stated, this works with any extra, not simply Google Toolbar. It's helpful for times when the designer doesn't rush to refresh as Mozilla. It's likewise extraordinary in case you're into looking at beta forms before the official discharge.
