A9.com & A9 Toolbar is broken

Link: http://a9.com/

Looks like Amazon.com/A9.com has decided to break their site by switch to Live.com.

Earlier today, I tried to using it to do a search....and got less than satifactory results. Though I also have Yahoo and Google toolbars in Firefox. Though the Yahoo toolbar was kind of on the fritz as well....and the Googlebar has the annoying quirk of not being immediately available when I first open Firefox.

Now I just did a search, and all I got was:

Web by Live.com Service temporarily unavailable.

Search results provided by Windows Live. Results also provided by a9.com and Alexa.

What will I ever do now..... >:-(

Of course, back when I was working...the corporate web filter blocked a9.com, because it was considered spyware or something like that.....though it wasn't this way at first, because I had the toolbar installed before they started blocking it. Its just that I was having problems, and tried uninstalling extensions to see which one broke things.

In the end, I starting hearing other people complaining that the Livelink menus had stopped working under Firefox...so I realized I wasn't alone....

Probably some IE centric coding.....which is odd, because back in the old days users would complain about issues accessing Livelink with IE, and we'd say 'well it works with Netscape'..... :>>

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
