I would like to get a yahoo and google toolbar for my mozilla firefox version 0.9.1 but it says it doesnt support toolbars. I dont seem to like IE as good as mozilla since ie is not as protected as mozilla. Will the newest version of mozilla let me have a toolbar so i can get rid of IE. Thanks

http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/releases/#download
Click on Windows: Installer
The Firefox browser already includes a Google search box on the toolbar.From there you can add more search engines.Click the little arrow next to the "G" and then clcik "Add Engines". What do these toolbars do that you want them installed?

The new update site is at http://update.mozilla.org

The googlebar does work with 0.9.1

Googlebar

I don't thing there ever was a yahoo toolbar for Firefox.

Personally I think the Mozilla GoogleBar version is far superior than the one supplied by Google. Go figure.

Mozilla is both a web browser and a Email client, among other things; Firefox is a simplified version of the Mozilla browser, and has a separate development path. Quite frankly, I prefer the Mozilla browser because it has more features I use. Alas, I don't use proprietory toolbars, so cannot advise you.

Well mozilla does not have a yahoo toolbar but you can get the google one from here:

http://googlebar.mozdev.org/


They are working on an ebay toolbar:
http://mozbid.mozdev.org/

Yahoo Companion toolbar for mozilla (not sure what stage of development it is):

You must uninstall any older versions before installing this.
