How to re-enable the Google Toolbar in Firefox 5.

Solution: Change maxVersion in the install.rdf file to 5.*. Do a search if your not sure where the file is located.


– Edit ~user/.mozilla/firefox/mhznvz4j.default/extensions/\{3112ca9c-de6d-4884-a869-9855de68056c\}/install.rdf

– Change <em:maxVersion>4.*</em:maxVersion> to <em:maxVersion>5.*</em:maxVersion> and save.

– Start Firefox. Toolbar should start normally.


The same ./extensions/\{3112ca9c-de6d-4884-a869-9855de68056c\}/install.rdf file can be edited in Windows to restore the Google Toolbar.
