Google Toolbar: Bug

GoogleBlogoscoped report on a Google toolbar feature that, when enabled, “defends” against other programs trying to switch the default browser search engine to something other than Google.


However Google say it’s a bug, and they are working on correcting it.

    That’s strange. I finally got around to installing the Google toolbar a few weeks ago–and for some reason it set my default search engine in Firefox to . . . nothing. I always had to choose Google to search from my browser search box. It stayed like that for a few days before I got too annoyed and uninstalled the Google toolbar. Apparently this “feature” didn’t work so well for me.

    “it set my default search engine in Firefox to . . . nothing”

    Laughs. I’m sure that’s the last thing they want! 🙂

    I’ve had some issues with the toolbar and tried to restore the original settings and it’s not real user friendly.
