TO EVERYONE if you update to firefox 4.0.1 it will break the hotfix for the toolbar in fire fox 4. NOTE! You can update firefox 220.127.116.11 to firefox 3.6.17 and the norton toolbar still works.

Is there a way to prevent Firefox 4 from auto updating to Firefox 4.0.1 ????
NVM. You can do this under Options -> Advanced Menu --> Updates

Actually, the toolbar works fine in Firefox 4.0.1, but it just doesn't know it! Here is the fix. 1) Disable Norton Tamper Protection. 2) Find the file install.rdf dated 4/6/2011 hidden in a subdirectory of a Norton data folder. Open install.rdf in Notepad. Change the maxversion setting from 4.0 to 4.0.1. Save the file. 3) Reenable Norton Tamper Protection. 4) Open Firefox and install the update.

Thanks everyone for letting us know about this issue. We're working on it, and I'll post an update when I get more information. For now, if you want to continue using the Norton Toolbar with Firefox, I recommend that you hold off on upgrading to 4.0.1.
Additionally, I DO NOT recommend editing, modifying, or removing any Norton product files. This is extremely risky, and has the potential to compromise your system security.

Don't worry guys, I will not mess with anthing, I am always patient when it comes to Norton Internet Security, put I couldn't hold off on the 4.0.1 because I find updating my browser as soon a possible is good practice, it comes with security and stabilty updates so I just had to update it. If it means waiting for a Norton Toolbar then so be it.
Thanks for your help guys

The Firefox 4.01 update fixes critical security issues. If a toolbar is more important then by all means wait but for me and the machines I am responsible for, I am choosing to update Firefox. The toolbar cam wait.
