On the off-hand chance that you may have mistakenly removed the "search" option from the firefox toolbar, the solution would be as follows:

view -> toolbars -> customize

From the choices now presented to you, drag the "search" applet to the toolbar and click "done".

If your desired search engine is not the default, click the down-arrow in the search window next to the icon and select what you want from the drop-down list.

We are confused about the question----

Nonetheless, the ANSWER is: Googlebar IS available for Firefox, and it works very well..
