Re: TOOLBAR NOT SHOWING IN FIREFOX

Look under your pillow tomorrow morning. Maybe The ToolBar Fairie will leave one there for you overnight :-)

Are we losing the war against cyber crime? Is it Windows 10? Is it the ridiculous pace of rapid fire updates from Mozilla to improve FF against vulnerabilities.

I have never seen a time when in my experience all the top Security Vendors are having so many issues with their products. I have tried Bitdefender Internet Security 2016 whose browsing quirks drive me nutz,, Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 (which was the absolute worst - had to use System Restore to regain a funtioning PC), Emisoft Internet Security 10 whose firewall prevented the downloading of Window's Updates. I had been using NS for a while because on my PC configuration in W 8.1 it has been the most trouble free security product and it has never interfered with any other program on my PC. It has also never balked at Anti-Exploit and Anti Ransomeware add-ons such as Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit and HitmanPro Alert.

Are cyber criminals becoming too sophisticated forcing security vendors to make increasingly complex protection programs that are inherently unstable? When it comes to cyber security there is no longer any "Keep It Simple, Stupid."

There has been no harsher critic of Symantec on the FF Toolbar Issue than  I, but at bottom I do understand and eagerly await the appearance of a functional NS Toolbar so I can stop using other programs that while offering good protection on all fronts are buggy as all heck. I want to return to NS, but I refuse to give up my FF 42 or go through various contortions to mimic the protections of a functional NS Toolbar.

Antivirus-Only Is Dead. Long Live Security! 

I now return you to regular programming.

David, try opening a new FF Window, not a new Tab.

Note, the vault still does not work in FF.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Re: TOOLBAR NOT SHOWING IN FIREFOX

^^^^^ Yesterday, your solution might have worked.   After a reboot last night, whenever I open a new FF window, I get a blank toolbar.   So I'm back to square one.

Re: TOOLBAR NOT SHOWING IN FIREFOX

I'm sticking with FF 40, so that's not the problem. The latest Norton toolbar update broke the toolbar. For me - the toolbar is there, but Identity Safe isn't available.

In the FF addons tab, it lists it as "Not verified", and gives me the option to disable it. But clicking on the 3 dots gives no response.
