I hope that they fix that bug that causes the google bar to disappear from time to time. Google bar is the thing that has gotten me to use mozilla on a permanent basis. I never liked the sidebar for searches, too much fuss and besides that space is for my bookmarks! The google bar behavior suits me fine.

Can't help myself - what is so good on Google bar? I don't need anything else than URL bar itself for searching... (Except for occasional advanced searches, but they are REALLY rare. And in such case I fire google.com itself.) And besides - the less tollbars the better ^^

Well, one thing that we try to add beyond regular searches of Google is the ability to very quickly access a lot of types of searches- 16, last time I checked- in an organized format. Also, as with the IE version, buttons are automatically generated from the search terms as the search is run, which can be used to easily find your terms on the page without any extra typing. It's not perfect, but it can save a lot of time and it can always be collapsed to minimize clutter when you don't need it. Hope that answers your question. -AndyB

Yeah, thanks ^^ I was just wondering because despite of these facts I probably won't ever use it, but it's one from the most frequented complaints about Mozilla so I'm very glad somebody is working on it ^_^

This has apparently been linked to when a new window (ie, popup) without toolbars is opened, and since the setting persists, then when the window is closed the setting remains with the toolbar hidden. It is something we're working on; see bug 959 <http://mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=959> for details, or if you have a fix that might work. Thanks for the encouragement!

#12 Java sidebar dice game

I've resized my online java game to fit in the mozilla sidebar. Here is the link along with a screen shot. <http://www.webdice.org/sidebar.html> Also, someone might be interested in editing this category on Dmoz. It could become quite popular if Netscape takes back any market share. <http://dmoz.org/Netscape/Sidebar/>
