I don't know know how freecause toolbar got installed. When I right click in the toolbar area it gets listed as a possible toolbar and when checked space for a toolbar is there but nothing else is displayed. It does not show up as a plugin or an extension.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Group: core-security
