    I have Add to Searchbar 1.7 installed and running firefox 2.0.0.14.

    I am unable to add search engines to the searchbar. When I try I get the alert [see attachment].[tried with ebay.co.uk, and amazon.co.uk search engines]

    Any suggestions as to what it means, how to fix the problem?
    thanks, b.

    Not sure why you want to run this. Amazon and ebay are both available in the drop down box in the default installation.

    To add search plugins to the search bar, there's no need to install 3rd party software. Just go to the site (e.g. Amazon.co.uk /ebay.com) and click the drop down button then select 'add XXXXX".

    Or just go to http://mycroft.mozdev.org/ where there's thousands of them.
