Above is the screen shot of my Mozilla Firefox 3.5 browser showing only two rows of the tool bar to minimize space while giving enough room for the page browser. It has only the standard Navigation Toolbar and the Search Box.
However, i opted FB Toolbar rather than the Yahoo Toolbar in the second row hence the former has more useful features.
(FB Toolbar L-R buttons: FB tools, Search Box, Go button, F-Options, F-Applications, TV Channels, Games, News, Sports, Online-Radio Station Player, E-Mail notifier, Locale Temperature, other windows apps: Calculator, Media Player, Word, Excel, Paint, Notepad, Powerpoint Presentation, Windows Registry Editor)
FB Tools: A pull-down menu where there are options for the tool bar including adding essential buttons like windows applications.
Search Box: FB-owned search tool
Go Button: Press and your search shall proceed

Here are the sites where you can easily download the FBtoolbar:
Conduit has announced that the latest Toolbar, as well as new games, application, news alerts, sports updates, weather, and many others are now available for download.
My browser has got a news alert box at the lower right resembling the Google news update. There’s also a crawling message on the toolbar itself announcing the latest from Conduit.
