Continuing with the Firefox update will not advance the Norton Vulnerability Protection to the correct version. In fact, doing this may make things even more problematic, as the compatible Norton add-on should be in place prior to updating Firefox. NIS 2012 needs to be updated to version 188.8.131.52 in order to be compatible with Firefox 11.

My NIS 2012 is version 184.108.40.206. My existing FFox 5.0.1 still shows NVP 10.0.1.68-1 even after numerous runs of Live Update. Very strange problem, risky to update to FFox 11.0 until I can solve this odd problem.

Hi dfc99 I have been away from my computer for a few hours I would got back to you sooner. Try this do not use the firefox builtin updater but down load a full version of firefox 10.0 that is supported and install over your firefox 5.01. do not download the latest firefox and then try to update your norton software going from ff5 to ff 11 may be the problem. To find a place to down load older versions of firefox go to http://www.filehippo.com/download_firefox/11540/ this link takes you to firefox 10.0 full download. when you have firefox 10.0 on your computer run norton live update and check to see if the norton updated to the latest NVP number.

Could Symantec please add the ability to move the Norton Toolbar around in Firefox (and IE too)?
In Firefox, ther toolbar is stuck on a row by itself wasting a lot of browser space so I don't use it.

You can move the Norton Toolbar in IE9. Please see this article for more details. - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/153593.
I hope this helps.

The Norton Toolbar will only move around on the Menu Bar row, which I normally hide because I don't need it. This approach was recommended by Microsoft IE9 was released.
When using IE9 I only use the Favorites Bar and Command Bar, which happily reside together on one row.
If I enable the Norton Toolbar it occupies a separate row.
If I also enable the Menu Bar, I can move the Norton Toolbar around on the Menu Bar row, but I cannot move it to the Favorites bar / Command bar row. This means I am stuck with an extra space-wasting row I don't want.
What I am suggesting is a true floating, maybe even browser agnostic, Norton Toolbar that the user can put anywhere.

Just updated to Firefox 11.0, then ran Norton Live Update manually. But Norton Vulnerability still shows as version 10.1.0.68.1, not version 10.1.0.68.2 as it should. I'm stumped.
