Re: comcast toolbar-


Give this a try:

If you’re using Firefox:

  1.  Go to Tools from the menu bar and select Add-ons.
  2.  Choose the Extensions tab and make sure XFINITY Toolbar is enabled.

If you’re using Internet Explorer 9:

By default, all toolbars are disabled in IE9.

To enable the toolbar:

  1. Press Alt to bring up the menu bar.
  2. Select View from the Main Menu and then go to Toolbars.
  3. Choose the XFINITY Toolbar.


If you’re using Internet Explorer 8:

  1. Go to the View Menu on the top of your browser window.
  2. Choose Toolbars from the dropdown menu.
  3. Check to see if there is a check next to the XFINITY Toolbar.

For other versions of ie or firefox you can try the same steps.

Re: comcast toolbar-

Thanks guys!  I was going to download their toolbar, but after reading your postings, I hit the brakes and decided not to!


There is enough headaches in life without adding more.  Thanks again.
