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 www.Triond.com/dashboard.

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: www.Addons.Mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Addon/Add-On-Compatibility-Reporter/. 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: www.Triond.s3.Amazonaws.com/Toolbar/Firefox/TriondToolbar-Latest. 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.
