Norton toolbar not working with Firefox 18.0.01


Here we go again. Every Firefox update, and I spend hours trying to fix the conflicts with Norton Security Suite, and lose Norton Toolbar, where ALL my dozens of passwords are stored. This is simply not a satisfactory situation. Time to go back to Internet Explorer, as much as I regret it. Mozilla, why can't you talk to Symantec before you force an update of Firefox into circulation? This has spoiled the initial stellar performance and functionality of the Firefox browser. What a shame..

hello rqbii, iit's the same procedure each 6 weeks - norton does release a new version of its toolbar as soon as a firefox update is available & you'll have to run symantec liveupdate to obtain it: https://community.norton.com/t5/Norton-Toolbar-Norton-Identity/Firefox-18-Support-for-Norton-Toolbar/td-p/886714

While Norton does not have the greatest antivirus client nor a problem free toolbar extension for Firefox, they have however made their toolbar availble for new Firefox releases on same day or within a day ever since Firefox 5.0 release in Norton updates.
