Introducing: The Triond Toolbar 2011

Tue, Jul 12, 2011, by BluSphere


It’s back! The Triond toolbar has risen from the dead and been brought back into the arms of the dear Triond’ers – almost at least.


Finally! It’s back! The Triond toolbar has risen from the dead and been brought back into the arms of the dear Triond’ers – well almost, at least.

Some weeks ago I wrote an article about the Triond toolbar. It was mostly about how annoying it was that Triond hadn’t updated the Triond toolbar since 2008 and that many of us Triond’ers really wanted to use it again. I felt a need to express my feelings and opinions on this topic – so I did.

However, I saw that so many new Triond’ers had joined the community, and that no one actually knew of this toolbar. I had written an article about a Toolbar that no one had heard about. After reading comments on my article and getting messages from friends and fans, regarding “what this toolbar was” and “where to get it” I somehow felt like I had wasted a lot of time on that article.

So what I’m going to do now, is to tell you all about the Triond toolbar – before doing anything else!

All you need to know about the toolbar

The toolbar looks like this. It’s very useful because of the many options it has. The fact that we can access all these buttons no matter what website we’re at makes this toolbar very unique and extremely useful for people who doesn’t want to go to Triond’s dashboard every single tine they want to check their views, comments, messages etc.

In the section below, you can read about what every single button does.

Triond: This button takes you to

Submit: This button lets you submit an article. It basically takes you to

Random: This button takes you to a random picture or article from Triond.

News: This button gives you a drop-down list of the 10 newest topics from the Triond Blog.

Friends’ News: This button gives you a drop-down list of your friends’ 10 newest articles (Same as “News Feed”)

Comments: This button gives you a drop-down list of the 10 newest comments on your articles or pictures.

Inbox: This button gives you a drop-down list of the 10 newest messages in your inbox.

$4.06 (1): This button shows you your income this month (so far) . Click it to go to

$4.06 (2): This button shows you how you much your next payment will be (so far).

5: This button shows you how many messages you’ve gotten today (so far). Click it to go to

21: This button shows you how many comments you’ve gotten today (so far). Click it to go to

9: This button shows you how many times your articles, pictures etc. have been liked today (so far). Click it to go to

323:  This button shows you how many views you’ve gotten today (so far)

Tools: This gives you a drop-down list that contains the following options: “Homepage”, “Logout” and “Options”. The “Options” button lets you control whether you want the toolbar to automatically log you in or not. It also lets you control if the “Random” button should only take you to articles, pictures or both.

How to get the toolbar

It’s very easy! Follow my step by step guide and you’ll be done in no time.

1. Download the Internet browser “Mozilla Firefox” – if you haven’t got it already. Download Firefox here.

2. Install Mozilla Firefox.

3. Open up Firefox and go to this web-page: This is an “Add-On” that you will need.

4. Install the Add-On (Firefox might do that automatically).

5. Now, you don’t have to read anything about the Add-On at all. It does one thing. It lets you use Add-Ons that are old and normally don’t work for the newer Firefox versions. Eg. the Triond toolbar works for Firefox 2 or 3 ONLY. But when you get this Add-On you can use it with the newest Firefox 5.1!

6. Restart Firefox.

7. Go to this web-page: This is the link for the Triond Toolbar.

8. Install the Toolbar (Firefox might do that automatically too).

9. Restart Firefox.

10. Restart Firefox again (I know it seems silly, but it’s the rules).

Now you’re done! You should see the Triond Toolbar at the top of your screen in Firefox now. Simply log in and start enjoying.

Almost done…

  14. cardy Says:

    Glad to have you around thanks for the info.

  15. sambasivarao Says:

    Good introduction. very usaeful

  16. Emancipation Says:

    Thanks for the info, Blu. :) I will check it out.

  17. The Elements Says:

    I will do that that, thanks

  18. Darlene McFarlane Says:

    I downloaded the add-on and then downloaded the toolbar using the instructions and links you provided. When I try to use the toolbar, a warning comes up saying uses an invalid security certificate that has expired. And that the program is untrused. I cannot use the toolbar and have been trying for the last half hour to find a way to uninstall it. I can’t find it anywhere on my computer accept in my tools. I can turn it off but so far have not found a way to remove it from my computer. I would suggest that other users think twice before downloading the toolbar…you may end up with the same problem.

  19. Darlene McFarlane Says:

    If anyone runs into the problem I had, I found the Triond toolbar and the add-on in add-ons – extensions. They can both be removed from this page. The toolbar and the add-on are not compatible with Firefox 5.0.

  20. Jewelstar Says:

    I use firefox 5.0 and would have to figure out whether the toolbar works, as Darlene mentioned.

  21. Wherner5 Says:

    Thanks for the information

  22. article Says:

    thanx for the information.

  23. erwinkennythomas Says:

    wonderful info to know! great!

  24. catlord Says:

    I used the Triond toolbar for awhile. I removed it as I felt it wasn’t providing anything more than a visit to the site provides. Just another RAM-eating add-on and with Firefox as we know, too many add-ons and the known systemic memory leaks are enough to slow down your browsing experience.
    Anyway, glad you found a solution. :-)

  25. tap0991 Says:

    Pretty cool. Didnt know about the toolbar. Just sucks that its not on chrome.

  26. briantaylor1992 Says:

    Wow its pretty cool ^.^ Thanks for the update and heads up through messages. I really like it :D I would have never thought to download the compatibility add-on either :)

  27. Fornis Says:

    Oh.. that’s cool. Thanks for detailed information. I have tweeted it.

  28. leewalls Says:

    I like the way you explained it with so much detail. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

  29. seiva7 Says:

    thank you for the interesting article.

    I think i will pass anyway, toolbar brings bad memories.

  30. thestickamn Says:

    Actually, -didn’t Chrome adopt the Mozilla/Firefox add-ons? I knew that this was their intent.

  31. CA Johnson Says:

    Thanks for letting us know about the Triond tollbar. I don’t have Firefox, but this is good to know if I decide to get it.

  32. JonnyJames Says:

    Nice, thanks for sharing. Will give it a try.

  33. Heather Dawn Says:

    I am on of the “Triond has a toolbar???” folks. Thanks so much for letting me know about this.

  34. NotActive Says:

    Thanks for the info Blu.

  35. amrubhai Says:

    thank you very much for this information

  36. buenavida Says:

    Thanks for informing us by this article and your message!

  37. James DeVere Says:

    Thank`you. Will give it a run!

    Actually, it would also be great if the share button remained invoked when pressed ` it too has been redesigned but now longer works as well as it used to in IE7.

    Great stuff . j

    Just a follow up on my previous comment: I really like the toolbar! I do have the problem with when I click to go to a random article, it gives me the same 10-15 authors every time, and always the authors that have been around for many years. Does it never give any of the newer authors?
