Google is wrong about CustomizeGoogle

Are you unable to edit your Google personalized homepage? In the Google Help you can read about different solutions to this problem.

Solution number four is to "TURN OFF FIREFOX EXTENSIONS". Quote: '...Other users have noted problems with a third-party extension titled "CustomizeGoogle."'

This is not correct. CustomizeGoogle is not causing any problems with the Google personalized homepage.

Facts: The CustomizeGoogle extension only adds Google Suggest functionality to the personalized homepage. The Google Suggest code is developed by Google.

Update: Anonymizing your Google ID using CustomizeGoogle should not be breaking the personalized homepage. But please note that you will not be anonymous when logging into a Google account.
