Is updater.exe a firefox file? At various times when starting firefox, I get a pop-up from Norton's downloader insight that warns me that the updater.exe file could not be verified and suggest removing it from my system. Apparently Norton cannot identify the URL this file is coming from.

Firefox does include a file called updater.exe, it sounds like a false positive from Norton.
