I have just upgraded to Firefox 17 and found that Norton 360 "Login Assistant" (formally named Identity Safe) no longer works. It does not fill in the username and password fields. It worked very well and did all the right things when I was using Firefox 16. There is probably a quick fix but in the meantime I have had to revert to version 16. Looking forward to the problem being resolved.

My 64-bit Windows 7 HP SP1 based notebook was under repair for the past couple of months. So, recently when I got it back, I upgraded Firefox manually to the latest version, i.e. 17. However, noticed that both Version 15 and 17 are listed in the Windows Programs list (Add/Remove Programs list). Can I remove / uninstall Version 15 and leave Version 17 alone, or do I need to remove both and reinstall Firefox 17 afresh ? Is this some sort of a bug in the Firefox installation process ?
