Norton ID Safe Vault Add-on - Upgrade

An upgrade has been installed for this in Firefox today, with a new interface.  I see no announcements or "release notes".  Can someone explain the new release and how menu items previously available can now be accessed.

Re: Norton ID Safe Vault Add-on - Upgrade

make sure you're running v22.8.1.14 of Norton 360, Norton Internet Security, Norton Security, Norton Security with Backup Norton Antivirus, Norton Security Suite

I have Firefox 50.1.0 and NSB v.22.8.1.14, but these new features did not make it to shores... yet.

Patience seems to be the most badly required virtue around these beaches, I guess... 4

Hi All,

I found it was not downloaded via LiveUpdate with in Norton:

FWIW - I may be doing something incorrectly as I am not an avid FF user, however I did not receive the update via Norton LiveUpdate, but it was available via Add-on Extension in FF.  I added it, restarted FF and it is present and appears to be working as advertised.

Hello Ivan Richman

The auto fill is off by default. You will have to enable it to use that feature.

Re: Norton ID Safe Vault Add-on - Upgrade

Sorry, guys, I feel a little bit discriminated here...   I don't seem to have received the update via Norton LiveUpdate and can't find any place within Firefox from where the add-on can be updated. My Firefox add-on shows Norton Security Toolbar 2016.8.1.9, last updated on 12-20-2016.

What am I missing? Or is it because I do not have the Cloud Vault installed?

Hello LinYu2

That is probably the reason. Norton is only supporting the Cloud Vault  I think the Add-On is for Cloud only, but I will confirm this.

Thanks.

Re: Norton ID Safe Vault Add-on - Upgrade

There are 2 Norton extensions. Norton Security Toolbar and Norton Identity Safe.

Norton Security Toolbar comes from Norton Live Update but Norton Identity Safe does not.

Norton Identity Safe is the one you want and it was just updated and you get it here:

Hello LinYu2

You are correct. This new FF Add-On only works with the Online vault. That is why you can't find the update.

Thanks

Many thanks Jim, for your input. But why would I want an add-on for something I don't want to have, namely, the Vault in the Cloud?... I remain with my earthen Vault, close to my fingertips and, if nothing else, I'm free of those "Norton down again" kind of blues...

I suspected that from the beginning. But, hey... I also believe that miracles do happen, every once in a while... I'm now reassured that this was not one of such rare occasions. Oh, well... 

Thanks to both of you.

Autofill not working for me. Even though I enabled it with in Identity Safe settings.

I went back to Chrome. Screw this thing. The new implementation is just horrific with Firefox. All this waiting for this garbage release? They can have it. If they put this crap for Chrome I will really be pissed!

Did you receive the update to the FF extension? If so, did you reset the setting for Auto Fill? The default setting with the update is OFF, and yes it did get reset with the update.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: Norton ID Safe Vault Add-on - Upgrade

I had done a fresh install of Firefox for the first time. Even had the latest extension. I could not get autofill to work. I made sure it was on. I also don't like how it opens a new tab signing into the vault. That is so stupid and poor implementation. It needs to be like Chrome. Hit the button enter vault pw off you go. 

Also having to manually download an extension is once again really stupid as well. Can it not be like Chrome and before with Firefox? Common.

Re: Norton ID Safe Vault Add-on - Upgrade

Okay. I am giving this thing another shot and really playing with it. I cant figure this out though. When I close Firefox and open it back up. My vault is still not open? Every time it asks for a log in. With Chrome. It will still stay open for a bit. Is there a way to change this in FF? If I remember back when I used FF. It would do like Chrome and stay open for a bit?

Re: Norton ID Safe Vault Add-on - Upgrade

Nope!  That is a bug / feature of the new and improved ID Safe extension.

Ha! I gave up for real this time and went back to Chrome. The integration is so much better and pretty much flawless compared to this disaster on Firefox. No way was this ready for release.

Re: Norton ID Safe Vault Add-on - Upgrade

Something happened earlier today while I was working in my computer that I strongly suspect that it is related to this most recent Norton add-on. A stranger message popped up reading something like this: "Please sign in to Norton Vault for filling in".

Out of curiosity, I clicked on the sign-in button inside the box and landed at the page to sign-in to my Norton Account. I stopped right there, afraid that it might be a disguised way of leading me to involuntarily creating a cloud vault. Of course, I don't have a crystal ball and remain perfectly aware that I may totally wrong.

Is anyone familiar with this situation who could provide some meaning to what I just described?

Interestingly, the ID and PW fields for access to my Norton Account were already filled up when I got there...

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Re: Norton ID Safe Vault Add-on - Upgrade

What browser took you to the sign in page?

I suspect it would have prompted you to create an online vault.

If you aren't going to use the online vault you may as well disable or remove the ID Safe extension in FF as it will not be compatible with your local vault any time soon.  You can keep the Norton Toolbar extension for SafeWeb annotations etc if you want.

Re: Norton ID Safe Vault Add-on - Upgrade

I was using Firefox when the message popped up on my screen. I was a bit puzzled, because I know that the  Norton ID Safe extension does not work with Firefox for purposes of filling up IDs and PWs with a local Vault. But I do agree that it would most likely prompt  me to create a vault online. A message to this effect has periodically appeared when I sign in to my local vault, but this last one was totally different in its format and contents. Maybe this happens because I just installed the Norton Vault add-on.

For the SafeWeb annotations I have always used (and still use) the Norton Toolbar, from where I can also access my local vault just with two or three mouse clicks, which becomes very convenient. As for filling up, I use IE or, in rare cases, I do it manually, and this is when the quick access to the vault from Firefox Norton Toolbar comes handy.

So I will follow your advice and disable the Norton Vault add-on, since I'm not contemplating changing my mind on the virtues of the cloud any time soon...

Many thanks for sharing your thoughts.
