Yahoo updates toolbar for Firefox

Toolbar to offer Yahoo's Anti-Spy adware and spyware removal software for computers running Windows.

Yahoo on Tuesday night plans to unveil an updated toolbar for the Mozilla Foundation's open-source Firefox browser that offers the company's Anti-Spy adware and spyware removal software for computers running Microsoft's Windows operating system. Yahoo, which recently backtracked on a pledge to make all its software compatible with Firefox, also will make its basic Firefox toolbar, without Anti-Spy, available for use with Linux and Apple Computer's Macintosh operating systems. The toolbars and Anti-Spy software are free.

The Linux and Mac Firefox toolbars offer persistent bookmarks, site-specific search capability, Babelfish-based site translation, and RSS/Atom subscription feed capabilities.
