I just noticed the toolbar will suggest search terms as I type them in, similar to Google Suggest.

Has it always been like this?

Don't see that in mine.

Is it possible you have picked up some adware?

Just found this. Could this be what you are seeing?

What is Browse By Name?

Browse By Name is a new feature of the Google Toolbar. It allows you to save time by typing names instead of URLs into the Microsoft Internet Explorer Address Bar. For example, instead of typing www.google.com into your browser, you can just type "Google," hit "Enter," and Browse By Name will take you there.

When Browse By Name is enabled, it will direct you to a website or Google search results. When this happens, your cursor will flash an icon and your search term will appear in the Google Toolbar's search box.

Browse By Name is particularly useful for web pages that don't have obvious URLs. For example, you can type "ford explorer" to go directly to www.fordvehicles.com/suvs/explorer

When Browse By Name doesn't 'know' where you want to go based on what you type into the IE Address Bar, it will do a Google search for you. Try typing "digital cameras" for an example. Please note that Browse By Name is disabled when you type in a valid URL such as "www.mit.edu"

Please note that the Browse By Name feature is not available for the Google Toolbar for Firefox, because this functionality is already built into Firefox browser. For more information on the Firefox browser, please visit the Firefox support center at [mozilla.org...]
