The Norton addons don't work in Firefox 3.5, but they won't break 3.5 as long as you don't force them to be enabled. They are disabled automatically by default.
You should probably re-enable Firefox's built in anti-phishing and anti-malware protection since Norton Toolbar disables them when it is installed. As such without the Toolbar, Firefox is defenseless. They can be re-enabled in the Security options for Firefox 3.5.
I do agree though that a Firefox 3.5 compatible Norton Toolbar should have been out weeks ago since Firefox 3.5's interface has basically been frozen for at least a month. It also shouldn't require a NIS 2009 update since the addons are stored in separate folders in the Norton data directory. The addons should be able to be updated by themselves without requiring a new version of NIS 2009.

Firefox 3.5 was finally made available today. We have a couple defects that we had to wait for the release version before we could fix. We're going to make a couple changes and test with the final release of Firefox 3.5 to ensure the compatibility issues we discovered were indeed corrected.
There should be another update on this later on today with additional status on Firefox 3.5 compatibility.
