Hello All

This web site seems new and I do not know how to find out if it is legit or if it is a spinoff of one of the Malware developers trashing everyones computers. It is http://www.firefoxtoolbar.com/ one of their peeps have been posting on a Forum I belong too.


Has anyone heard of this web site and is it legit. I use FireFox but was curious about this person or persons.

Thanks Suzi for your help.

Hi again. Wink

I think someone will have heard about it or will want to check it out since there are a lot of Firefox fans here.

It's not connected to Mozzilla

and as Firefox has a toolbar what do we need it for.,

they list a number of search engines, but I would think most people only use one/two at the most.

I personally won't be bothering. especcialy as they are auto updates.

Hi goonman,
Our team developed the Firefox toolbar. The bar is definetly not for everybody. If you want a little more customization then the default bar on ff, then the bar may be for you. However, for many people, the default bar on ff is sufficient.

Regarding the integrity of the program and our devlepers.
We have been around for just about 10 years. We have always strived to write simple, yet spectacular programs. Some of our previous projects include NewsHub, OpenSRS, Blogware, and Ultrabar for IE.

If you have any questions that I can answer that would help you to feel better about our program, you can drop me a note directly.

Thanks,
-Pat
