    "Google no longer supports Toolbar in Firefox 5+"

    August 3, 2011  |   By fjord_fox

    Pros

    The pros are that, including the main GOOGLE features, there are many other buttons that can be added from a myriad of different companies.

    Cons

    No suport and no "Feedback", so when we have a problem, like for example we don't like their decision to discontinue supporting FireFox, then we cannot tell them, and are they even reading our complaints here?

    Summary

    I really don't like this decision of theirs. Just because many of the toolbar features are already supported in FireFox doesn't mean that they are as good.

    And besides, I depend on many of the buttons that are supplied by third parties too. For example, on my toolbar, I have Google Dictionary, because I'm living in Norway, so I often see Norwegian that I cannot understand, so I use it to translate it to English. Then I have 4 AccuWeather buttons, 1 for Stavanger, Norway, where I live, 1 for where my daughter lives in California, 1 for where my friend lives in another part of California, and 1 for where my Dad lives in another California city, so when I talk to them, I can discuss the weather with them and read the weather report for their cities. I also have a button for Google Maps, and one for MapQuest, and one for Dictionary.com. These are buttons that you cannot get with FireFox--at least I don't think so. I don't know how to use FIreFox add-on features, and I don't want to spend the time to figure it out. Google Toolbar has it all in one place and it is easy to learn.

    I really wish they would continue to support FireFox!

    The con is that Google doesn't seem to have a way to tell them that we don't like their decision, no feedback, no "contact us", nothing. They have a lot of angry customers when the've decided not to support FireFox and we can't tell them.
