Will the Norton Toolbar be available anytime soon in Firefox 4 BETA or in future updates?

Posted

I am running Firefox 4.0 b7.

Chosen solution

If Norton is as slow coming up with an update for Firefox 4.0, like they were last January when Firefox 3.6 was released, count on it being a couple of months before they get it done correctly. IIRC, with 3.6 is was like 5 or 6 weeks, and then it took them another 2 or 3 weeks to fix what they did wrong the first two or three tries.

You most likely will have to wait for the official release to appear to get the Norton Toolbar on Firefox 4.0 working and even then it can take a few weeks for Norton to release a working version their toolbar for Firefox.

Symantec Corporation, maker of Norton products, issued a statement on March 22, 2011 saying they expect the compatibility problems will be fixed in early May. http://community.norton.com/t5/Norton-Internet-Security-Norton/Norton-compatibility-with-IE9-and-FF4/td-p/420020
