Updating Libx toolbar

With the release of Firefox 3.5 some updates to Libx toolbars needed to be made. Libx automatically created a new testing revision, but when I tested the Bond Edition there were some problems with Central Search syntax. It turns out that all the databases within Bond's CS setup needed to be listed.

How to get a list on a weekend from home? I went to Bond's CS search page where users can select databases to be searched. Then, viewed page source and did a "Find in page" for "checkbox". It was then simple to find next and look at the value for each checkbox and copy them to the Libx configuration.

The new version of Bond University Library's Libx toolbar is now released and users can grab it by finding updates for Firefox add-ins in the usual fashion. Or wait until FF checks automatically for you.
