    I now have the new google toolbar and IE8. NONE of my custom buttons are active. I click on them and a completely blank window appears about 2×2.

    Facebook, myspace, watch online tv,, google maps,& craigslist

    they are all blank

    This is the same as last year when I gave up and removed the google toolbar. Why have it if none of the buttons work?

    @Frohock: Glad to know that this article helped.

    @Bonnie: Try installing new Google toolbar on IE8 and not the other way round that is just upgrading internet explorer 7 to 8 with same version of Google toolbar.

    Thank you very much for the useful link that helps to get my problem fix. I’ve been searching and asking everyone for help. It was very frustrating to see the small tiny search box that I can’t read any words that I’ve type.

    May god bless you and keep up your excellent work!

    Thank you soo much for the tip. I have been trying to figure out why all my search boxes and buttons were so small on IE for a while now. I just gave up using it, but I needed it for my online classes that don’t accept any other browser. Thanks!

    In IE8 typing anything in the search box (upper right) causes it to shut down. Changed search engines, removed and reinstalled, did AVG scan, was on one machine now on both. Anyone what is causing this and how to fix it?
