Anyone with the steps to remove the google toolbar from Firefox?

When I attempt to drag it off of the toolbar from view->toolbars->customize, nothing happens. I also cannot remove the go button. I can add/remove others.

I can move them around to the various locations, and can create a new toolbar to put them on. I've tried that, and then not showing that toolbar, but each time a new window is launched, the toolbar with the Google toolbar & go button reappear.

What's up with this?

Thanks,

MM

I THINK (since I use Mozilla not FF) that this will answer your question:

If not, please reply back!

Thanks, but that's not what I'm looking for.

I'm trying to remove the Search bar (which I called Google toolbar because it has the Google icon in it), as well as the Go button.

Seems crazy that I can customize the toolbars pretty much anyway I want except to remove those two items. Makes me think maybe my installation is corrupted.

Thanks,

MM

I was doing a search for the "real" google toolbar, and stumbled across this question of yours. Just for snickers, I tried doing what you want to do and it worked OK. I clicked on customize and grabbed the go button and the smaller search window and dragged them into the "menu" box where the other customization choices are.

Can't give you a clue as to why it won't fly for you.

Today is my first day for Firefox, and I like it so far. I wanted the google toolbar for the "autofill" feature, but I guess I can live without it.

Anyway, hope maybe it works for you next time you try it. I joined bleeping just to answer this, but maybe I will come back some.

As you said, it might be a bad install. Try reinstalling.

As far as the Go button goes :thumbsup: right click on the word Address and uncheck Go Button.

Hello,

Right click on the "Go" button and select "Customize".

Drag the built-in Google search thing into this window and poof!

It disappears.

Take care.
