Thanks to Bethany for her question sent via email

"I just installed the Live Toolbar beta and now I can't find Form Fill.  Do you know where I can find it?"

Well, short answer is you can't: the Form Fill and Windows Live Favorites add-ins aren't available on Windows Live Toolbar beta.  This from the Help documentation:

"When you upgraded Toolbar beta, your Form Fill and Windows Live Favorites add-in settings were preserved on your local computer. To use these features, you must uninstall all of your Windows Live beta downloads and reinstall your previous version."

To the Live team: a great beta product but It would be nice if you were informed prior to installing the beta. Maybe you included the notice, but I missed that reference.

How do you get it back? Sadly (for now), the advice is to go back to the release version…

To uninstall Windows Live Toolbar beta:

  1. In Windows XP, click Start, and then click Run.

    –or–

    In Windows Vista, click the Start button, and then click in the Start Search box.

  2. Type appwiz.cpl, and then press ENTER.
  3. Click Windows Live Beta (all programs), and then click Remove or Uninstall/Change.
  4. Click Change, and then click Continue.
  5. Under You haven't installed these yet, clear all of the check boxes.
  6. Under You installed these earlier, clear all of the check boxes, and then click Continue.
  7. Follow the on-screen instructions

To install the previous version of Toolbar beta:

  1. Go to the Windows Live website, and then click Get it free.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions.
