This free toolbar offers AOL members one-click access to tons of popular applications.

AOL Toolbar (for Firefox) attaches a slim toolbar to your Firefox window. The buttons are bright, and pleasing to the eye. Of course, you need to be an AOL member in order to enjoy all of its components, especially the e-mail and instant messaging features. If you're not a member, you'll be directed to the appropriate Web page when trying to access some features, but may also get an error message before it goes to the page. Among its features is a nice selection of game links are provided by games.com. We were also able to easily add shortcuts to popular sites like Facebook, Flicker, and IMDb using the large button gallery. A ticker, or Surfometer, shows you how many pages you've viewed during your online session. You'll find standard toolbar features like a pop-up blocker and weather forecast, although the weather forecast doesn't actually display weather information on the toolbar. Instead, it takes you directly to AOL's weather site. What you won't find here are privacy settings, such as a cache or browser history cleaner.

We highly recommend this customizable and handy toolbar for all AOL users.

""AOL Toolbar" will not be installed because..."

December 20, 2008  |  By silentgod

 |  Version: AOL Toolbar (for Firefox) 5.2

Pros

I`d like it to work...

Cons

Using Firefox 3.0.5 & when I atempt to install it comes up with
"AOL Toolbar" will not be installed because it does not provide secure updates.

I`m taking a wild guess here, but, do we need AOL just to use this.
I hope not!!

Summary

Seems a bit too much to switch providers just to get Redskins info etc.
