Cannot access Configuration>Catalog after 126.96.36.199 update
I found it easiest to follow the update that now appears on the site. I simply made the change in the Toolbar.php file and uploaded it to my local/Mage/Catalog/Block/Product/List folder (create it if need be) and the problem is solved completely.
