Toolbar not appearing when upgrading from version 0.7.0 and under?

If you previously had Accessibar 0.7.0 and under installed and then uninstalled/upgraded while the Tools -> Accessibar Toolbar setting was deselected (toolbar hidden), version 0.7.1+ will not appear in the interface.

To resolve this:
  1. Install this older Accessibar version and select Tools->Accessibar Toolbar to display the toolbar
  2. Now, get your latest version of Accessibar here!
