problems with Norton

Posted

I have Norton confidential, antivirus and firewall on my Mac running 10.6.8. when I open Firefox, Norton tells me I cannot be protected while surfing the web; that I need 1.5 version.

However, the Firefox version installed on my computert says I have 1.9 yahoo users edition! I want to continue to use Firefox if at all possible (hate SAFARI) Thank you D Clippinger

Is this with Norton Confidential?

It appears this is an old product that Norton killed off, which explains the out dated messages about Firefox 1.5. It has been replaced by Norton Identity Safe. https://identitysafe.norton.com/
