I've tried the googlebar with a few different builds now and have worked out. i got to install latest version 0.46 then install 0.45 on top of that then it will work.causejust 0.46 gives me that big grey block at the bottom with some red words on it .But after having the googlebar for awhile it just decides to disappear when i reopen phoenix .Any help appreciated.

As Paul Harvey would say, "Just what, not why."

I have discovered that in several situations, a problem goes away when I refresh the bookmarks (even if the problem doesn't seem to have anything to do with bookmarks).

Try this:

-- Export your bookmarks.
-- Delete all bookmarks except the bookmark toolbar folder which cannot be deleted.
-- Import from the file you exported to.
-- Delete the second occurrence of the bookmark toolbar folder.

Hello, I installed the Google bar. All I get is a huge bar at the bottom of this page that says, "<menuitem id="view_gg_menuitem"
--^

I tried the bookmark suggestion. Will you help, please...

I must've missed something. Where does the google bar come from? I've checked Google's site and they didn't have anything the last time I looked.

googlebar comes from googlebar.mozdev.org and is not made by the people at google

For some unknown reason, 0.46 does that some of the time on some computers. Install 0.45 instead.

Chances are, the last time you had mozilla open, a window without any toolbars (such as a pop-up ad) was opened. Currently, we use some javascript to make sure that the googlebar doesn't show in this case, but it's not perfect, and the last setting is saved- meaning that the next, normal, window you open will have the googlebar hidden. By going to View-Show/hide-Google Toolbar and selecting this option twice (once to clear the checkbox and once to make it show up), you can get it back. Work on a better way to hide the googlebar for pop-up windows is underway.
