'Search Web for ...'

I recently installed the newest version of Firefox on my PC to see if that would keep it from crashing several times a week. (It hasn't. Fixed it, I mean. It still crashes.)

I noticed something last night, though, something that I guess was part of the installation but I just now caught on to the fact that it sits right above my menu at the top of the page. It's this Yahoo Toolbar thingie, but it doesn't have a text input box.

The thing is, when I first saw it, I thought it was a joke. I'm not sure you can read them, so I'll tell you what they say: Search the Web for %s. E-mail this %t. IM this %t. Translate to English. Lookup %s in Dictionary.

It's the use of the combination of the special percent character and the s or t at the end of it that's had me in stitches. It looks like it's asking me if I want to E-mail this s**t to somebody or Lookup this s**t in the Dictionary. Perhaps that's just the naughty side of my brain coming out, but Seriously. Doesn't it look like that to you, too?

Is that what it is it supposed to say, or is that some funkiness your computer is generating? Do not understand.
