Initially, a standard set of buttons appears on your Yahoo! Toolbar in Firefox. Because toolbar buttons are visible whenever the Yahoo! Toolbar is available, they are useful shortcuts for actions you perform frequently and sites you visit often. You can customise the Toolbar by adding or removing buttons.


Here’s How

  1. On the Toolbar, click the pencil icon, then select Add/Edit Buttons.

    Select Personal Options, then Add/Edit Buttons from the menu.

    The Customise Yahoo! Toolbar page appears, displaying lists of all of the available buttons. If you haven’t already done so, you’ll have to sign in with your BT Username before you see the page.

    A message appears confirming that your Toolbar changes have been saved.

  5. If you don’t see your changes on the Toolbar, click the pencil icon (Pencil icon) and select Refresh Toolbar.
