User report. I think the YC depends on lots of Nav4-specific functionality and needs to be upgraded to support Netscape 6. Operating System: Win98 Language: English Issue Summary: I could not add Yahoo! Companion to my browser bar Component: PageLayout Doing What: Other Customizing Homepage as existed in Netscape 4.5 Severity: Other message is that 6.0 does not support this addition Can Reproduce: Always Try this URL: http:// Issue Detail: I have Yahoo! Companion on my Netscape 4.5 browser page. I check it several times a day. I cannot add this feature to 6.0 and the message is that 6.0 will not support the function. What is the problem. Is this a defect in 6.0 or can I make adjustments within the browser? If so, how?

Ok, afaik, there is no way to programmatically change the personal tool bar from a script on the web. The user has to navigate to a page, then drag the URL grippy from the URL bar onto the personal tool bar. Is that correct? but when I drag the URL grippy onto the personal tool bar I get (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010726): Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIBookmarksService.insertBookmarkInFolder]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://navigator/content/navigatorDD.js :: anonymous :: line 345" data: no] Source File: chrome://global/content/nsDragAndDrop.js Line: 105 What is happening with this?
Ok, my problem was probably bug 88711

doron, isn't there a xul/xbl way to get it to work for them?
Yes there is, at least much of the functionality. Since I don't have any idea how the toolbar really works, the main issue will be to get xul/js to work with their existing infrastructure, since a lot of the toolbar depends on what seems to be stored info on yahoo's servers.

See http://googlebar.mozdev.org/ It is a project to recreate an emulation of Google's toolbar in XUL/JS and there might be some related code between the Google toolbar and Yahoo! Companion since they have a similar intent. (just a guess)
I wouldn't spend time looking at this...not fixing in the near future, if at all.
Hi Now that Moz is into 1.0, can we not give Yahoo! a friendly nudge to update their toolbar to work with Mozilla and the upcoming NS7? I imagine a fair few end-users will be disappointed if NS7 doesnt support the Yahoo toolbar. I have friends who dont use Moz because all their bookmarks are stored in their Yahoo Toolbar and so it is a pain to switch An additional point - I know there are / have been compatibility issues between various aspects of Yahoo (searching for Yahoo in bugzilla throws up 40 bugs) and Mozilla. Given that Yahoo is such a visable site, shouldnt there be someone on the Moz / NS team to act as an advocate to comunicate, push and work with Yahoo on these issues? Just a suggestion. dave
if we had xpuninstall
Netscape 4.8 will install the Yahoo! Companion, I agree with p4peter's guess, could we take the idea of http://googlebar.mozdev.org/ What about comparing the source of googlebar to the source of the plugin that compantion is/uses, the files installed on my pc via netscape 4.8 for companion were %netscape install dir%\netscapcommunicator\program\plugins\npycomp1,2,0,8.dll AND ..plugins\YahooCompanionJavaLC.class, if I am going down the completely wrong path to trying to get a fix for this please let me know. I don't know if googlebar.mozdev.org is the correct way to go, because if yahoo! were to go that way then they would have to get two different companion's, one for the latest versions of netscape and mozilla, and then keep the old one for IE and netscape. However, if they rebuilt, or revised it to support Netscape 4.x and up (including mozilla), IE 4.0 and up, and Opera, then that would be a more rounded and better way to go about it. Thats my opinion, thanks for letting me voice it. -Jason Anderson
what´s the current status of this? Are we getting xpuninstall? Has Yahoo made any comments on their attentions to work with Mozilla?

It looks like someone on MozDev hooked into this: http://companion.mozdev.org/ Does this mean that we should mark this as WONTFIX? -M

The toolbar at http://companion.mozdev.org/ now implements most of the primary functions of the Yahoo! Companion toolbar. The priority of this bug can probably be lowered to P2 ("Major site, minor problem"). I would still keep this bug open. The Yahoo! Companion toolbar still has some features that the Mozdev toolbar doesn't support. It would also be nice to have a Yahoo! toolbar that Yahoo! officially supported on Mozilla.

I understand yahoo is working on a firefox toolbar. Also, yahoo now links to http://companion.mozdev.org/.
Seeing as the Yahoo! toolbar started a beta for Yahoo! toolbar back in February and there has now been a second public beta I think that this bug can officially be closed unless there are any objections.
