    New Google Toolbar 5


    I recently removed Google toolbar 4 and installed the new updated 5. When I set up the autofill info it will not perform the same as 4, toolbar 4 would always highlite in yellow the boxes autofill would take care of. It was always very easy to sign into my email, I would open the sign in page, the email address box would be in yellow, I would click the box and it inserted the user ID, I would then click the user ID and it would insert the password.

    The new toolbar 5 has not highlited the box and only fills in the user ID, then I am having to type in the password. I wonder what is wrong, I really like the function of toolbar 4 with the yellow highlite feature and being able to insert my password with one click.

    Can someone help me with this problem?

    This is beta software, and you may encounter such problems.
    I find that hovering over the Autofill button fills out the form, but the yellow highlighting is much paler and doesn't appear until the hover function kicks in.
    Note that autofill now has an identity feature which will be useful for some.
    Play around with it, and uninstall it if you don't like it.

    Hi, might I suggest something. Why use the google toolbar at all? Have you thought of changing to firefox browser, or even IE7, or Opera. All these allow you to search directly from the toolbar, without having third party software installed. Surgey and Page are fantastic people, and I aplaud them for bringing us google, but I am not sure I really want them residing permanently on my pc.

    i agree , with IE-7 , why bother with toolbars. it has a popup blocker & a google search with it. if you want to make IE-7 look like IE-6 ,just click on tools at the top right ,click menu bar.
