Does Firefox 12.0 work with Norton Identity Safe?

more options

I recently updated to Firefox 12.0 and wanted to take advantage of Norton offering for free their Identity Safe app. I am running Mac OSX 10.7.3 and when it took me to the mac app store, it uploaded the extension in my Firefox ribbon on the top, but when I click on it, it opens in Safari. Is it not compatible yet with Firefox?

Chosen solution

The norton site says that it is compatible with firefox https://identitysafe.norton.com/, however, I can't find what version it works with. I would try to contact norton to find out the exact version numbers it works with.

Identity safe DOES work with Firefox 12 - as I just found accidentally, I'm pretty sure that all you need to do is change from the NAvigation Bar setting to the Menu Bar setting under "View>ToolBArs>Nav etc Every time a new firefox rev had been released and Identity Safe wasn't coming up, all I needed to do was restart my computer. This time, that wasn't necessary. THank you Mozilla!

It is Norton that makes it compatible with a Firefox version, not the other way.
