What is the problem between Firefox and Norton Security

Firefox is wanting to reject Norton Security safe search etc Addon for firefox because it is unsigned. I can get Norton to work with firefox if I stop the signature checking altogether. However, this is a significant reduction in security, so it kind of works against the reason I have Norton Security in the first place.

Can you all get it straightened out?????

Norton Toolbar Limited Compatibility patch for Firefox 43 is available

You may need to run LiveUpdate and reboot a few times before your product is completely updated to the latest version. It will appear in the LiveUpdate history as Norton Toolbar Add-on for Firefox.

Re: What is the problem between Firefox and Norton Security

Hi, folks. What I had to do after Firefox 43 updates was to click on the 3 parallel lines top right, and click on Customise.

Then I right clicked on the Norton Toolbar icon, and selected add to toolbar. Now it's there.

Re: What is the problem between Firefox and Norton Security

I have no problems on one laptop but the second FF will not accept Norton, says Not Verified. I have run update a number of times and no new updates come. I had the patch some days ago and Norton was OK in 42 but in 43 no good..

Re: What is the problem between Firefox and Norton Security

I have now tried,  short the lengthy uninstall/reinstall of Norton, everything I can think off. The version is right, 22,55.15, and  autofix says no problems. But FF is refusing to accept Norton is verified, as such it doesn't show up in customise so nothing I can do there. Any other ideas as to what gone wrong this time?

Known Issues: Few customers will not be able to enable the Norton Toolbar Add-On. The disabled Add-on will show an older version (2015.5.6.78). If you are facing this issue, Please send a Private Message to Mohan_G for workaround Instructions.
